BTW there is no Russian equivalent to Fox News.
RT is actually becoming more Americanised, which I really don't like much.
It might make it easier for Americans to relate to, especially the disaffected, but it pretty much alienates the rest of the world population that used to watch RT regularly.
Personally I liked seeing world events from a source not slanted by western views of the world, and of course I realise it was slanted in the Russian view of the world, but to me that is closer to reality than the CNN/Fox/BBC portrayal.
Now however the American journalists who got fired from western media, or couldn't get a job in western media because they didn't shape their stories to fit the western media mould seem to be getting jobs at RT and spend most of their time ripping on the western media slant on stories rather than bringing stories themselves.
It is almost as if Jon Stewart got his own TV News Channel, but no where near as clever or intelligently done in terms of satire.
I still download the Technology Update program each month, but rarely watch much else.
They need to make about 5 episodes of Tech Update a month, plus some programs focusing on the Russian military and its upgrade.
They could split the Tech update programs into a Science one, a Military one, a Business one, an Energy one, and a Manufacturing one that all include domestic and joint venture programs and projects. The programs are only a hour long and they rarely revisit technologies they have looked at in the past to see how they are progressing and what are the stumbling blocks to introduce new ideas and products.
