78. Him being on RT makes one question his judgment

I've heard the argument that he had complete editorial control but just him being on Putin's network gives it credibility, insinuates that maybe Putin and Russia aren't so bad (even though Putin has had how many people killed in the last year, how many anti-Hillary bots did he pay on social media to help trump, how much info did the Russians steal from the DNC and funnel to Wikileaks to further damage Hillary, and on and on to help trump steal the presidency?).

Do progressive media people really need to help this guy by lending their name to his network?

It's subtle infiltration of our airwaves, no Russia talking points need be spoken by the show hosts, just the fact that a certain show is on the network works for Putin (if Hartman is on RT, it and the Russians can't be that bad, right?).

BS, they've been our adversary/enemy since cold war days, and still are. Just because trump won't utter a single word of criticism of them doesn't mean we all fall for the Russian entrenchment that's getting it's tentacles into our media space. They just acquired a station in DC. They've got trump eating out of their hand, even giving them intel in the oval office. They want those sanctions lifted for access to the trillions that will bring and since trump can't lift the sanctions they deploy plan B the Russians are out friends, they're on our airwaves, they have well known progressive hosts on their networks. Our president loves them. What's the problem?

Just disregard the ever increasing body count of Russians connected to campaign shenanigans who apparently had info that Putin didn't want available to Mueller.
