So is this the Russian version of CNN?It all makes sense now.
No; CNN does not attempt to influence Russian citizens by pretending to be a patriotic Russian network.
Of course not!
They do that with the American citizens.

You are ignorant of my location comrade. CNN is so not transparent. You reveal your agenda to disrupt nations by propaganda.
The American media machine is far above others in it's skill to persuade or propagandize

Don’t care how batshyte crazy it is, it’ll still be more reliable and trustworthy than CNN and their ilk.
All mainstream news is propaganda, if you deny that your either an idiot or a shill
Those CNN shills are only executing messages they are required to expel based upon their job descriptions.
How is that any different than the Russia messaging?
What they broadcast is in support of their legitimate political opinions, ie; what they believe, rightly or wrongly, to be in the best interests of the nation. Russian "messaging" is intended to harm American interests.
You don't have a thing to hide while reporting the truth, and the truth only. Or do you?
What I don't want is foreign propagandists making thing up, or twisting it:
For those unfamiliar, Operation Mockingbird was a CIA operation began as the Cold War ramped up in the 1950’s. In an attempt to gather intelligence and influence public opinion, the CIA recruited journalists from across the United States.
The program officially operated for nearly three decades, and was deeply embedded in the fabric of American journalism. These compromised journalists provided the CIA direct access to some of the most prestigious media outlets in the country.
The scope of the infiltration of the media was vast, encompassing newspapers, periodicals, press services, news agencies, radio and television stations, book publishers and foreign media outlets. It appears that these propaganda relationships are still ongoing between the U.S. government and corporate media outlets.
