Response to Bluenorthwest (Reply #69)

Tue Dec 4, 2012, 07:55 PM

98. 'Do they criticize Putin?' Yes, in fact the only place I saw full coverage of the anti-Putin

demonstrations was on RT.

My comment about Rove was not snide, it is a fact. He escaped prosecution in the Plame affair, eg, because Libby covered for all of them and took the fall.

He escaped prosecution in the firing of the US Attorneys because he thumbed his nose at Congress and refused to respond to subpoenas.

I fail to see why you thought my comment about this obvious liar and dirty trickster who has had an enormous negative influence on this country was 'snide'. Pointing out facts is now snide? The comment I responded to was using the talking point which is apparently the one settled on, regarding Alex Jones who I have never even seen on RT btw, it's not like he's a respected presence there as Rove and Palin et al on our MSM. Imo, Jones is a harmless CT who has zero influence in this country while Rove et al actually do. To compare the effect someone like Jones has which is practically zero, to that of Rove and all the Tea Party liars we have to endure on our MSM, while voices like Amy Goodman eg, are never heard, is simply ridiculous. Let him speak, let everyone speak, I don't need a nanny censoring who I see on TV.

RT has given a voice to many Progressives on the 'left' in this country that have been blocked from our own MSM such as Thom Hartmann, Amy Goodman and jouranlists like Pepe Escobar while presenting Right Wing lunatics and criminals as if they were oracles of wisdom. RT's coverage of the American people themselves, during OWS's early days was fair and did not include, speaking of 'snide', the Corporate Media's constant baseless attacks on them.

No media is completely independent, our own MSM least of all. So having other media which at least recognizes that there is a 'left' in this country is something most Democrats should welcome. Their international coverage and documentaries about parts of the world we know little about, is for the most part, excellent. But if people are happy with the MSM that is their choice.
