Kansas City Radio Station Agrees To Play Russian Propaganda 6 Hours Per Day

Source: Crooks and Liars

A Kansas City area radio station has agreed to broadcast Russian state-owned media programming, the same outlet that U.S. intelligence called a “propaganda machine,” for six hours a day through a lease agreement struck by a local radio operator, reports The Kansas City Star.
.....................................

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, according to the Star.

KCXL’s website, which touts itself as the radio station that will “tell you the things that the liberal media wont (sic) tell you,” currently 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.”.............................................

15. Just look at the other programming on that station.

http://www.kcxl.com/shows.html

The schedule also has kooks Michael Savage, Jeff Rense, and TruNews with Rick Wiles, besides hours upon hours of religious programming. They surely make Coast to Coast AM sound quite rational in comparison.

Its homepage says, very ironically: "We are a country that puts its citizens second to citizens of other countries."

3. Call out the stations owners and managers. Whoever made this "business" decision.

Calling KC. Time to say No to Putin propaganda. Probably not much different than Limbaugh and Hannity, but still...

4. Aside from letting the sponsors know

that you object to what's on the public's airwaves at their behest, encourage all you whom you can to turn it off. That's all that's on the radio in some areas around here.

9. It's so

disgusting. What gets me is KC is a somewhat liberal city. This station I believe is in St. Joseph I think which is North of KC.

10. Dish

Dish has had Russian TV on for months. I blocked it so not sure if its still on. But many of the talking heads are Americans. Its very well done but its clear, they don't have our best interests at heart.

12. You guys don't get it.

Most of radio stations aren’t owned by independent businessmen any more. They are mostly owned by corporations that only have one thing as a requirement. Next quarters profit statement.

As long as Putin pays his bills, he gets 24/7 access to USA radio.

Court Finds RM Broadcasting Must Register as a Foreign Agent

U.S. District Court Judge Robin L. Rosenberg has ruled that a Florida-based company, RM Broadcasting LLC (RM Broadcasting), was acting as an agent of a foreign principal and must register as such under the Foreign Agents Registration Act of 1938 (FARA).

The Department of Justice contended in a civil counterclaim that RM Broadcasting has been acting as an agent of the the Federal State Unitary Enterprise Rossiya Segodnya International Information Agency (Rossiya Segodnya), a Russian state-owned media enterprise created by Vladimir Putin to advance Russian interests abroad. The litigation marked the first FARA civil enforcement action since 1991. Assistant Attorney General for National Security John C. Demers and U.S. Attorney Ariana Fajardo Orshan for the Southern District of Florida made the announcement.

“The American people have a right to know if a foreign flag waves behind speech broadcast in the United States,” said Assistant Attorney General Demers. “Our concern is not the content of the speech but providing transparency about the true identity of the speaker. This case shows that the Department can and will utilize all of its tools to bring transparency to efforts by foreign entities to influence the American public and our government, and demonstrates our renewed effort to enforce FARA rigorously.”

“While the right to free speech remains paramount to our democracy,” U.S. Attorney Ariana Fajardo Orshan said. “FARA ensures that the American public is fully cognizant of the true source of the messages broadcast in the United States. Armed with full information, Americans may properly evaluate the value of the speech they hear. As such, FARA is a fundamental tool in our continuing efforts to defend our democracy.”
