RT is not registered in the United States as a "foreign agent"

45
The American television channel CNN has actually switched to the live broadcast of events related to the status of the Russian Today Russia TV channel in the United States. Recall that the US authorities obliged the RT leadership to register as a "foreign agent." In the United States, such kind of registration implies reports to government agencies on obtaining funding from all sources without exception.


The main task for the United States in this case, apparently, is to identify those who financially assist the Russian television channel in the territory of the States themselves. By and large, this is just an excuse to re-announce the "spy network RT" with the prospect of a complete ban on the work of the channel in the West.

RT is not registered in the United States as a "foreign agent"


The period during which the TV channel was supposed to register itself as an “inoagent” has expired.

Now the US Department of Justice is considering measures of influence on the Russian TV channel due to the fact that its leadership did not go to fulfill the American requirements. Stated on measures up to criminal.

Recall that earlier in Russia they literally stated the following: if the US authorities undertake pressure on the TV channel Russia Today, then symmetrical measures will be taken against the American media broadcasting in Russia. We are talking not only about TV channels, but also about radio stations that have been well known since the times of the USSR.

CNN, not without slyness, declares that it does not understand why RT is not registered as a “foreign agent”, because, for example, the Japanese NHK or the Chinese newspaper The China Daily have already been registered as “foreign agents”. And why, in this case, American and pro-American NGOs in Russia express discontent when the Russian Ministry of Justice invites them to register as “foreign agents”?

    Well, why are they outraged? After all, they were in such a piety before the US media, all * perestroika * were equal to their opinion. What has changed today? As you were third-rate for them there, you remained, it was just that in the USA they decided to legitimize your attitude to all of you. It will be so until a mirror answer follows. But neither you, nor the government of RUSSIA will decide to transfer the US media to * foreign agents *. Toothless politics * appeasement * by surrendering positions or going to court will only provoke new restrictions and God knows what else.

          It is necessary to do this permanently, "without departing from the cash register", and by any methods, and not at all by the ones that they themselves use against RT. It is necessary by all means to look for opportunities, even if at first they, these very opportunities, are not obvious.

      I never associated myself with the authorities and the service staff, including with journalists. The power representatives did not ask me when they licked the Americans ass on behalf of RUSSIA. Journalists served and serve the government. To whom they licked, let them receive it from those.

      No. Just the roles have changed. Now we are paramount, and they are tertiary. And RT really threatens the existence of the United States, as it speaks the truth. And in the USA, people have long lost the habit of information from the outside world, which has not passed internal censorship and self-censorship.
      Most likely, they will ban RT. And we will ban their media. But no one is listening to their media.
      And RT will listen on the Internet.

    . And why in this case, American and pro-American NGOs in Russia express dissatisfaction when the Russian Ministry of Justice offers them to register as "foreign agents"?
    I apparently lagged behind life, but I don’t know any American NGOs. Why weren’t they even listed in the article? Or is this an obvious fact for everyone?
    The RT television company, I believe, is the best mass media that exists in Russia! The highest quality. Margarita Simonyan herself is a great clever girl. By the way, what RT shows is different from what they show us on federal channels, at least in tone. But, for some reason, RTs are not shown to us (you can of course find any channel on the Internet, or cable TV! But it is not DBT2)! And show the Americans. Why are they better? I am not surprised that RT is very popular in America.

      Cover ... Do not let go ... Deny ... Passed, remember. It is necessary to review broadcasting on Russian channels. It’s possible to remove outright stupidity from them, insert programs about Russia, about the development of science, about new technologies ... about the construction of the Kerch bridge, in the end ... And we are sucking up “fashionable sentences”, all kinds of tricks and criminal news .. . And, most importantly, you can attract the attention of the viewer by reorganizing the display of advertising on television channels. So that this ad does not cause feelings of vomiting ...

      Can I have an example of at least one? Maybe I lagged behind life? I have a regular antenna with 20 federal channels, there is a cable with the 80th and there are 2 satellite. Nowhere is there a single American or other Western Russian-language news or political channel. Euronews used to broadcast on “culture” in the mornings, but now it isn’t there. Although the example of euronews is not entirely correct, since VGTRK is one of the largest shareholders there.

      But everything is simple. You are right, practically no one is looking at the School of Rush Tudey. Just once again, the owners of the Fed wanted to kick their partners from the oligarchy of the Russian Federation in order to hear another “concern” and to show the patriots of Russia the wretched essence of your Zionist (fascist) partners from the oligarchy of the Russian Federation.

        Looks do not understand. The rating was compiled between May 1 and May 28 of this 2017 year. It is intended for advertisers. In 105 most watched channels Rush Tudey does not appear. This is despite the fact that the history channel is there at 10, and the culinary at 16. Well, who in the USA is watching Russia Today?

        But for example, the rating of the most popular news programs (Cable News Show Ranker: August 2017 (Adults 25-54)

          The selection according to certain specific rules was made to this list and the channels that should be in the top 5 did not get there, but they are not there - that’s strange. Therefore, I don’t understand what kind of list is so interesting what

            Regarding RT, it is clear that in the USA the percentage is minimal. It would be strange if, during such pressure, due to the historically negative attitude to Russian media in the USA, everyone would immediately begin to watch RT, when other channels pour mud on them 24/7. It would be foolish to think that France24 will be watched in Russia at the level of the Vremya or Malakhov program)) It is the same here.
            RT should be compared primarily with channels from its category, with international news channels. Everything is pretty decent and level. RT (with the exception of the USA) in Europe and other countries shows a good result and bypasses German, French channels, Al-Jazeera and probably second only to the Air Force. Agree, this is quite successful. It is clear that the audience is “spread” by country, but this is better than when no one could even hear and learn our point of view on the events.
            Internet is also worth mentioning. Many information flows have shifted there. RT on the Internet also feels fine. Twitter and YouTube channels work and pull part of the audience.
            And it’s not even necessary to watch RT for all foreigners. For example, few people know life news in Russia, probably 0.001% of people watched their releases. However, this does not prevent one of the quoted agencies in the country from being life news. A lot of people saw their videos, watched, discussed. In the same way, the views and opinions of the Republic of Tajikistan are spread by people in communication, newspapers, and other channels. Let sometimes in a negative way, but they spread it, voice it anyway. So, RT is quite good in its niche, there is no redistribution to perfection, but one must understand that to get into such a sensitive, highly politicized and closed segment of international relations can be said and to gain a foothold there not in the last roles - this is what it is, but success)

              It is clear that Simonyan needs to report on “successes” and budget money spent, but there is no faith in her. Rush Tudey is not popular in bourgeois countries.

                Does it seem that there is a contradiction, in one case it’s mandatory to look at the ratings, in the second “it seems to me” is enough))
                Well, come on, I don’t really want to look for specific numbers, because laziness. If you started looking for and citing specific figures for the United States and doubting Europe, then why don't you continue and find them too? I would love to see. I also want to write so that you don’t think that I’m protecting the Republic of Tajikistan with my breast, I don’t care how much the rating will be 1% or 0.5%. And once again I repeat, it is necessary to compare with international news channels, to compare in its niche and its focus. Your statement "Rush Tudey is not popular in bourgeois countries." It looks strange, not a single international news channel will ever compare in popularity with a local or, all the more, entertainment channel. Therefore, their "average" level of popularity is much lower, so let's compare there if you really want to. That would be fair and objective. I doubt that in Israel, for example, they know about the existence of the German channel Deutsche Welle)

                And by the way, according to your rating for advertisers, you still did not answer, why is it so strange? And I ask you to note, at no time did I dispute the absence of a RT in it.

                    I think the data on the sites is approximately correct, it turns out roughly only half the size of the most popular and popular information network in the world - is it bad? Taking into account what the competitors are holding up and do not allow turning around, as in any business, in principle, it is done.

                    Deutsche Welle, like the French, like al-Jazeera, seems to be broadcasting in English (like in Arabic, etc.).

                    It is strange, by the way, that it is so difficult to find information, as if it should be on the surface. Somewhere, probably, there are specialists for specialized ones.

    One cannot disagree with you; federal channels began to smell of rot.

    ----------------------------
    Propaganda of philistinism and hysterical shows. I haven’t watched either First Channel or ORT for a long time, except for any significant sport. In general, the TV, apart from the vulgarity, already spews nothing from itself. Including political talk shows turned into vulgar bickering.

    It is possible to remove outright stupidity from them, insert programs about Russia, about the development of science, about new technologies ... about the construction of the Kerch bridge, in the end ...

    -------------------------------
    In this regard, the American Discovery Channel is much better, talks about the construction or demolition of large structures, the repair of houses and cars, about simple hard workers somewhere in the taiga, about nature.

    Registration as an INCO does not help much. For example, after some NGOs in Russia with direct foreign financing forced to register as foreign agents, they closed and revived under new names, but are already financed by Russian citizens who receive money from abroad allegedly as part of legal entrepreneurial or copyright activities. ...

    It is necessary to end with chatter. Everything should be definite - an instant ban on CNN, coupled with hundreds of enemy NPOs from the well-known list - during the first repression against RT.

    Everyone understands that in the United States, Russia can not do anything with the villains. It is necessary to act on its territory.

    It is sad if RT is closed, but there will still be a big sadness if friends of the swamps and sodomites are not limited, but banned in the Russian Federation. am

      How sad. After all, Americans will not be able to watch reports of such meters of journalism, such as:

    You must immediately close all publications who are associated with the Anglo-Saxons. We divorced them so much that there is not enough space for our media. Let the propaganda be, as in the good times in the USSR. Today you can jam, for this there is equipment that was not in the USSR. Let these ghouls work with cheat sheets, and pass on to each other. These agents will come to us, with full pockets of cheat sheets ..

    This is not a "registration", but a total war, and in the war the enemy is destroyed.

    Damn, in Russia the same procedure for "foreign agents". Why resent something?
