Kansas City radio station agrees to broadcast Russian-owned 'propaganda' program

https://www.kansascity.com/news/local/article239359868.html

From The Kansas City Star

A Kansas City area radio station can broadcast Russian state-owned media programming, the type that U.S. intelligence called a “propaganda machine,” for six hours a day through a lease agreement struck by a local radio operator.

RM Broadcasting LLC, a Florida-based company that has agreements to broadcast the Russian state media program Radio Sputnik, reached a deal on Jan. 1 to lease air time through Alpine Broadcasting Corp. in Liberty. Alpine Broadcasting Corp. broadcasts on three frequencies in the Kansas City area: KCXL 1140 AM, 102.9 FM and 104.7 FM.

The lease agreement lets RM Broadcasting air its programming from 6 to 9 a.m. and 6 to 9 p.m. seven days a week. KCXL’s website, which says that it’s the radio station that will “tell you the things that the liberal media wont (sic) tell you,” lists Radio Sputnik in its morning programming.

A 2017 report by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence that evaluated Russian efforts to influence the 2016 election described Sputnik as “another government-funded outlet producing pro-Kremlin radio and online content in a variety of languages for international audiences.”

5. I think Ferengi are smarter than that

Unlike us humans, they apparently never irradiated their own planet.

45, on the other hand, demands to know why America has nuclear weapons if he can’t use them.

3. Who would advertise with them? Locals need to mobilize and put a stop to this.

4. Narrator: And so Russia discovered America's one true weakness, that by saying "liberal... bad"...

They could manipulate a solid third of the populace to do whatever they desired.
