Sadly I don't have much to offer here, but thought it was worth a mention!!!

For the record I do like RT... I think we all know that they're quite obviously pro-Russia, however I still enjoy their spin and the other side of the coin!!!


However... & this did make me laugh...
I hope some others here at ATS have seen their new Ad campaign to corroborate that I'm not going (more) insane...

It starts with a Blonde haired lady, most likely a news reader, with a speech from Obama in which he discusses Fox, CNN & MSNBC...
He mentioned that at least the U.S have these three outlets, as you can get Three versions of the story & one of them is bound to be right!!!
The Blonde lady has a confused face at this stage, as if to say "really??? You need 3 to get anywhere near the truth???"


Then a mass of faces pop up from each news outlet all laughing, for about a minute it's shows the likes of Mrs.Clinton, Mr.O'Reilly & many more just chuckling away!!!

The Blonde lady states that news is nothing to laugh about, & that while they laugh everything off... RT will be dealing with the news!!!


I really wish I could find the 2 minute advert on YouTube, but I couldn't see it anywhere!!!

Hopefully someone here who knows what I'm talking about will be able to find it, if I come across it I'll definitely share it!!!

Just thought I'd share this little RT gem, & I know it's propaganda, but it's the best piece of propaganda I've seen in years!!!



Peace everybody!!!!!

Like any other country I suppose, Russia likes its propaganda.

They are just waaaay upfront and obvious about it, then other countries including the US.

During the Olympics, all the Russian state run TV stations interrupted live broadcasting to show a "commercial" showing SS members then Obama and comparing him to Hitler (who killed millions of Russians btw.)

There was also a newscast with a mushroom cloud in the backdrop and the newsman was saying Russia is the ONLY nation on Earth that could turn the USA into a pile of smoldering ashes..

Not everybody is privy to the new, foreign language of today's youth- some of are too old to understand what the heck you're talking about!
When I read things like " Yesterday, the NGB went al 'KTO" and FXD stepped in to BZ th situationt; what a LAPG! Hahaha!" I feel as if I just walked through some dimensional time shift into an altered reality!


You seem very passionate about your subject. Could you would please explain what 'RT' stands for?
Thanks!

It's no worse than M$NBC(I guess Microsoft did sell most of that), CNN and their "he touched me there plane models", or Fox News as was said best on the Simpsons "Your source...for EVIL"

Most news outlets now are "we decide what you should think".
Including Reuters, the Big Black C, BBC, etc.

Unfortunately, the public just gobbles up whatever is thrown at them.

I believe it was originally Russia Times (or maybe Today?) but was shortened to RT because people just didn't watch it.

Definitely a PSYOP (or in todays new speak Information Operations) "News" *Cough* outlet.

The US killed hundreds of thousands of Iraqis and Afghanis (I need to find the pics of us troops guarding poppy fields....the Taliban executed opium/heroin producers...but they also blew up the statues at Bamiyan) Heroin hasn't been this big of a problem in the states since Poppy Bush was head of the CIA. It's bad...and getting worse. But since we are "Liberators" I guess it goes with the vengeance against those Saudis who flew planes into buildings. Rambo 3 is now one of my favorite movies.

I watch it. I'm not brainwashed. I like the fact they dont even pretend to be a real news outlet. Lots of ufo stuff too! Can I be your friend? We differ on opinions but you are very articulate

No prob...though I do sometimes PUI (Post under the influence) which I usually regret later.

One of the things I've noticed about RT is that they have taken a page from FOX News. The majority of their newscasters are some serious eyecandy when it comes to the women.

Most of the other networks have what I consider to be good looking professional types.

It's almost soft core porn.

Heroin and the Taliban are included in Russian propaganda??

Some thoughts on the heroin thing, too. Yeah drugs are bad, m'kay, but things like the continual reports on NBC about may be their own form of propaganda. War on drugs and all.

A friend of mine died from it at a heroin party (common in this area then) he attended 15 years ago.

Edit: I've never done heroin in case that might be read into my comment.

Not surprising that "The News " is considered anything but . Like the education system .Or what is passed off as science .Look at the economic system's we employ or at what is called spiritual guides . If it's possible to have such a variety of claims being held and for them to be true then we have a big problem with the definition of the word true ..Seems that the best we all have is a opinion that is allowed to vary from one point of view to another .Makes you wonder just how we got to this point in time ...peace

Of course RT is pro Russia and complete propaganda.

en.wikipedia.org...(TV_network)#History



RT, previously known as Russia Today, is an international multilingual Russian-based television network created in 2005.

The creation of Russia Today was a part of a larger PR effort by the Russian government intended to improve the image of Russia abroad.[11] RT was conceived by former media minister Mikhail Lesin,[12] and Vladimir Putin's press spokesperson Aleksei Gromov.[13] At the time of RT's founding, RIA Novosti director Svetlana Mironyuk stated: "Unfortunately, at the level of mass consciousness in the West, Russia is associated with three words: communism, snow and poverty," and added "We would like to present a more complete picture of life in our country."[12] It is registered as an autonomous nonprofit organization[14][15] funded by the federal budget of Russia through the Federal Agency on Press and Mass Communications of the Russian Federation.[16][17]


That being said, propaganda or not, I like em too and so do a lot of other people, but they are just a mouthpiece and should not be trusted.




The network's signal is carried by 22 satellites and over 230 operators, which allows some 644 million people to watch the channel in more than 100 countries.[3] RT America is available to 85 million people in the United States.[4] In 2011 it was the second most-watched foreign news channel in the U.S. after BBC World News,[5] and the number one foreign station in five major U.S. urban areas in 2012.[6] It is also very popular among younger American people, U.S. college students, and in U.S. inner city neighborhoods.[6] In 2013 RT has become the first TV news channel in history to reach 1 billion views on YouTube.

The World is a complicated place. Where once the Taliban executed drug runners, they are now doing it themselves. It brings in money and further weakens their enemy in their minds. They do still punish users, but only if it hurts them if they don't. There are a lot of informers in Afghanistan and Pakistan that are heroin addicts, who are just looking to get money for their next fix and really don't care where the money comes from. Pretty much the same the world over.

Those places are no different than anywhere else when it comes to addiction.

Back on topic though, I find it amusing, though a smart marketing ploy, when RT tells viewers..."You can trust us. You don't need those other news networks."

The problem is...it seems that there are to many out there that'll believe that brand of malarkey.

RT...

Yes, i read and watch the outlet, sometimes. I believe that they generally have great coverage when it comes to live events, and i used to enjoy hearing the other side of the coin. I think they have went too far overboard on the propaganda train when it comes to Ukraine, however. On the same token, Fox News and CNN are effectively no different. Sure, they may not be government funded, but they effectively fulfill similar roles.

---

As for RT's advert being the best piece of propaganda? Nah, the best propaganda is the stuff of which is never truly revealed.

You know I was just thinking that we are better off listening to RT then our own MSM .Obviously they feed us propaganda to to convince us of things that might not be true ,but if we allow ourselves to respond by our own ptb we might find ourselves being used .RT is not going to convince me to send my sons off to war for Russia ,but cnn/fox and the like might if I believed them ....just a thought ...peace

Why listen to just RT? I listen and read pretty much a [Snip]load of MSM and Alternative news sites. That way I can look at the many stories from all sides and form my own opinion.

Wisest words spoken in this thread.
Those with a capable discerning mind can come to their own conclusions.

I think the nationalistic jingoism started with the World War. I won't say one and two because it never ended with one, countries were carved up by the "winning" empires and that is why we are seeing such a push for independence movements by ethnic groups.

Nationalism is just propaganda for those who cannot see through the b.s..

RT used to be subtle... I remember there was a time I used to watch it more than any other news channel because it was such fun to spot the propaganda and how they used to link images "subliminal messages" etc as mentioned linking US and European leaders and SS nazis etc etc

This is sort of how hypnosis and mass hypnosis with TV magicians pull there tricks along with advertising boards etc etc

Nowadays it's like RT has been directly linked with agents deliberately misleading viewers, and now in recent years they have found every American on the planets which hates there country to host shows such as max kaiser

I think RT have gone far beyond Fox New,
