Media: US congressmen admitted that RT wins the information war

57
The American parliamentarians acknowledged that the audience of the Russian RT channel has grown significantly in recent years, and the publication itself has become a full-fledged participant in the information space, not only in Europe, but also in America, reports RIA News with reference to the Washington Times.


Media: US congressmen admitted that RT wins the information war


"Despite the fact that the congressmen continue to call for a struggle against" Russian propaganda, "they recognize that the American media has nothing to oppose to the Russian television channel," the newspaper said.

“Notable are the complex media incursions that are carried out by RT in all of Eastern and Central Europe, in the Middle East and in Latin America. And we just don’t fight this effectively, ”Edward Royce, head of the foreign affairs committee, quotes the publication.

At the same time, American “legislators are most struck by the fact that RT managed to make a revolution in the way of presenting information, while traditional broadcasters in the United States, such as Radio Free Europe / Radio Liberty and Voice of America, remained largely stagnant.” the newspaper writes.

In Europe, hold the same opinion. “This is an information war, and we are losing it,” said Lithuanian Foreign Minister Linas Linkyavichus.

Help RIA "News": “RT is three 24-hour news channels in English, Arabic and Spanish, channels RT America and RT UK, documentary channel RTD, global news video agency RUPTLY, as well as online portals in English, Russian, Spanish, Arabic, German and French ".

      But RT, as such, hasn’t yet begun an infowar ... Congressmen from the “old Europe” and Baltic extinctions will be horrified and, subsequently, will definitely self-cut out if RT “opens the ax of war.” These whiners should cut it on their nose. hi

          “Noteworthy are the complex media attacks that are carried out through RT in all of Eastern and Central Europe, the Middle East and Latin America. And we just don’t fight this effectively ”

          It turned out to be a surprise for the USA: how many people, it turns out, want and love the truth in the world! And it’s not easy to kill the truth!

          It’s not worth it to relax heavily, here’s a brief summary of what the RT should oppose in its work, and to all of us “knocking on the clave”:
          “In the second half of the 20th century, the notion of“ soft power ”was developed by a prominent American political scientist Joseph Nye. The concept was not long relished by the scientific community alone and was quickly adopted by the Ronald Reagan administration. The essence of the concept is that there is such a form of power, the impact of which is not through coercion, economic or military, but through the promotion of values, norms, cultural aspects or stereotypes.
          As tools, everything that comes to hand is used. The tip of the iceberg is international horns in the face of the Voice of America, BBC or RT or cinema.
          The scheme of numerous think tanks, NGOs, as well as the army of “smart heads”, which tell what and how the average man thinks, relishes what to digest and what not, works more complicated. The active use of social networks in this sense has become a real divide for such concepts and methods.
          Why would anyone forbid something if it is possible to fill in the information field to such an extent that it becomes absolutely impossible for the average user to determine where the truth is and where it is not.

          For obvious reasons, Russian users have an association with the army of network hamsters. To believe that all these phenomena were born in Russia would be extremely naive. The whole story with the use of the army of trolls, couch analysts is most widespread in the United States, where it was born, or rather, the whole concept of “soft power” took shape.
          The Broadcasting Council (BBG), a government agency that is part of the Department of State, is known to be the key body that is responsible for broadcasting the entire structure of Voice of America. According to BBG reports, the key focus of his activities now is countering propaganda by Russia and Daesh.
          Working with the media and social networks to broadcast the necessary images and meanings around the world is not a beautiful conspiracy theological concept, but an objective reality.
          For 2016, of the $ 604 billion defense industry, $ 55 million was allocated for a specialized system for monitoring and counteracting comments on social networks.
          And finally, another fact, interesting from the point of view of the observer. In all public speeches and reports, the concept of “propaganda” is used only in the context of Russia or Daesh, although in fact all of the above actions are propaganda.
          Conventionally, the same figures can be called terrorists, separatists or moderate opposition, we can say anything about them, but in the end, we will have an initial impression and attitude based on associations with these terms. Moreover, the personalities are the same as their activities. ”

          So everything is serious. Someone on the territory of Russia will receive part of the pie from 55 million released in 2016 to a specialized system for monitoring and counteracting comments on social networks.

      This is a sluggish information war on the part of Russia, if we keep in mind the entire information war as a whole, and not just the broadcasting of this television channel or media group. countries. Describe in figures the real balance of the "occupation", how much Ryazan received and how much Kaunas. Write about the Second World War, what kind of victims were given the liberation of Europe. We did not help the Russian activists in Ukraine, they were both planted and planted. They did not tell anyone about the largest divided people and Russian genocide. Maybe in the West we are winning the information war, but in our borderland the result is controversial.

    RT shows and tells the truth, and then each viewer is given the right to decide for himself what to do with this truth. Western media give their information as the opinion of the last resort which can not be doubted and interpreted differently. Hence the growth of viewers in the Republic of Tatarstan and the outflow from Western pseudo-media all tired of the imposition of other people's opinions and lies.

    I thought about the same thing, but is it really just about borderland? It seems to me that in our country with this very propaganda there is a clear flaw throughout the territory. Or is it--? They say, they write that when there is the right propaganda everywhere in Ukraine, then everyone will be on our side. And in our country, --- NOT EVERYTHING is on our side !! Or so --- Why such an unbeatable “echo”? Swearing echoes somehow do not mention the RTVI TV channel .? This is a clone of this echo. Maybe even worse.

    At one time, the Soviet Union lost the West in propaganda, the media were subjected to severe censorship, the United States trumped freedom of speech and freedom of the media. We must pay tribute, everything that was said in the USSR about capitalism turned out to be true. And now the United States censored in the media, lack of freedom of speech, and lies , surpassed fascist Germany. Soon the Americans, in fear of detention, will watch RT
