" RT's news isn't fabricated( there might be some,probably )"

The Government of the UK fund the BBC, so hopefully the new links apply to them aswell...
Hell everybody has called for this to apply to all sources so if this is a democratic website it's all or none surely!!!

Fine. There's more important things for all of us to be focusing on than this. The changes have been removed.
There was very good reason for this, essentially for the same reasons we've had to restrict using before itsnews as a source. But fine, embrace you state mandated deceptions and the troll army that comes with.
Otherwise there's also no point, because we would just be entertaining ourselves.

I reply here aswell,
I just looked it up, They tweeted this two hours ago when clicking on the link in the tweet you end up here :
rt.com... ( its the timeline )
And it does under the picture "Riot police stand guard as demonstrators protest the shooting death of teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri August 13, 2014. (Reuters / Mario Anzuoni)
Just to be clear, misinformation? yes and no.
They re-tweeted this 2 hours ago, but the image itself has a clear date on their link showing what day it was taking. Propaganda yes. Fabricated not so much.

Well, when I see an OP that uses RT as a source, the first thing I will post is the facts about what RT really is. That's my right as a poster, so get used to it.
At least try and read the post first. sheesh.
Well, duh - of course I'm going to read the post. Even if I agree with the post, I will disclaim the use of RT as a source.

State owned propaganda versus fascist controlled (WMD in Iraq/Iran) news services. One is not better than the other, ATS just doesn't want debate, world is bad, US is the shining knight, end of story.
btw LightningStrikesHere was banned the other day by the owner for questioning aspects of ATS. An act that shows just how bloody childish ATS can be. If they want control thought then so be it. We can move on to other sites.
Wrong , there is a difference between state owned and opinionated but still owned by citizens......
I fail to see how this is hard to understand......
On the second part of the post, I watched that thread evolve with Lighteningstrikeshere
That is not the reason he/she was banned
There are many instances of many members coming onto ATS and getting banned, and ATS being lenient and letting them come back with new accounts, under the understanding that the behavior that led to their first ban would cease.....
Some members cannot seem to do this, in this case he was granted multiple opportunities for redemption , but he continued to display the same attitude that got him removed in the first place......
MANY members from ATS that are banned are allowed to come back and most of them come back and have no further issues.......
If you continue the same behaviors the fault lies only with yourself......
Its one thing to be heated, ive done so myself, its another to display reckless disregard and disrespect.
Heated debates are fine, slanderous and vitriolic diatribe is not
