US Department of State: authorities do not restrict freedom of Russian media


During the briefing, it was said that the RT channel, which registered as a “foreign agent”, was deprived of accreditation to the US Congress.

I understand that these accreditations can be revoked by the Congress Association of Journalists. The Foreign Agents Act only requires an organization to register with the federal government,
said naught.

According to her, "the United States does not tell the Russian media what to write."

We don't say that to anyone. All Russian journalists can come here (to the State Department). We support the First Amendment to the US Constitution (on freedom of speech) and would like the Russian government to give (the American media) the same opportunity to work as we do here,
said the representative office.

Recall, the US Department of Justice introduced RT America to the list of foreign agents under the law of 1938, while many other foreign state media, such as the British BBC, the Chinese CCTV, the French television channel France 24, and the German Deutsche Welle are not registered in this capacity. Later, due to the status of the agent RT, he was deprived of accreditation in the US Congress.

    America is a country of lawyers. And since common sense and formal logic often do not coincide, we cannot understand them. Let them say that formal logic dictates, devoid of all morality. WE ARE OTHER.
    "The United States does not tell the Russian media what and how to write." But they allocate a lot of money around the world to counter the Russian media.

      What do you mean? The Russian law on indents does not cancel anyone's accreditation anywhere, does not close the door and does not call for it. It only gives the Ministry of Justice the right to recognize someone as an indent. And then everyone decides for himself - let him go, or turn from the gate.

          A direct lie.
          The law on "foreign agents" in the United States was introduced specifically for censorship.
          And they do not "prohibit" exclusively what they allowed for the show.
          And in Russia they answered in the mirror. But we don’t lie that we’re not introducing censorship for the media.

      You are clearly not a philosopher wink Common sense is based on logical thinking with the feature that allows you to make decisions not on the basis of experienced casuistic experience, but using strict logical constructions. And legal science in our relations with the USA does not smell. Having advanced charges against Russia, the United States does not even think of confirming or proving them. What kind of lawyers are there? This is an elementary banditry on a high road, despite the fact that there is no mediation, third force to enforce compliance with any legal norms. Who is stronger on the road is right.

      America is not a country of lawyers, but of bandits and crooks. And lawyers come out of their number or serve them.

    Such and American journalists can come to the Foreign Ministry, which they do. They go to our Masha. And they were turned from the Duma by decision of the Duma. The law did not limit them. Do not like the striped. And us for what?

    And what do our authorities limit you? You do not write what you see and hear, but write what you want to hear or see.
