The fact of the matter is that American media in Russia is harming Russia more than Russian media in America is helping Russia.
President Vladimir Putin says that Moscow will resort to reciprocal measures in response to US steps against Russian media, which he called an “attack on freedom of speech.” On Friday, Washington ordered RT America to register as a foreign agent.
“The attack on our media is an attack on freedom of speech without any doubt. We are disappointed,” Putin said at a news briefing at the APEC summit in Vietnam on Saturday.
He added that the Russian parliament is currently discussing the response and voicing “tough suggestions.”
“But we will definitely respond and it [the response] will be reciprocal,” the Russian president warned.
Putin stressed that the media’s role is to provide information and express their perspective.
“It [the media’s perspective] can be challenged, but not by shutting down the media or creating conditions to make it impossible to carry out its professional activities. [It can be challenged] by presenting your own perspective, presenting your information to the audience,” the Russian leader said.
The US has chosen another approach, however, opting for virtual closure, Putin said, reiterating that the response will be adequate and reciprocal. The US measures against Russian media came even though there is zero evidence of their meddling in the 2016 US presidential election.
“I want to draw your attention to the fact that there wasn’t and could not be any confirmation of our media’s meddling in the [US] election campaign,” Putin said, adding that the latest investigation in Congress shows that the Russian ads amounted merely to “some tenths or hundredths of a percent.”n.
The US government is so hypocritical it’s disgusting.
American media permeates the entire planet and it drives entire societies in a direction which is beneficial to the ruling class of America (read: Jews).
Media is extremely powerful, and the internet has given openings to smaller media. RT has piggybacked on the rise of alternative internet media. They want to shut it all down, and the attacks on RT are just the beginning.
As the reader is aware, The Daily Stormer is almost as pro-Russia as Russian state-run media. How long before we get hit with “Russian propaganda” charges?
Hillary Clinton already declared the entire Alt-Right and Alex Jones as tools of Vladimir Putin.
This is spiraling into complete madness at an overwhelmingly rapid rate.
