RT files paperwork with Justice Department to register as foreign agent

The company operating the RT website and television channel has filed paperwork registering with the Justice Department as a foreign agent — a step it had said it would be forced to take to keep operating in the United States.

RT, which is headquartered in Moscow and was formerly known as Russia Today, is accused by the U.S. government of being a propaganda outlet for the Kremlin.

The registration follows an acrimonious back-and-forth between RT and the Justice Department about whether they should have to file paperwork under the Foreign Agents Registration Act, known as FARA.

RT editor in chief Margarita Simonyan posted a statement on its website Monday, saying: “Choosing between a criminal case and registration, we have chosen the latter. Congratulations to American freedom of speech and all those who still believe in it.”

Pravda haz a sadz because they have to acknowledge that they are an arm of the Kremlin.

Boo-hoo!

Somehow that's an infringement of "Freedom of Speech" even though they will still be able to broadcast and publish.
