Tucker Carlson - who amazingly, because he's on Fox, is fast becoming the only journalist giving airtime to real left-wing, anti-war voices on the MSM - talking to Max Blumenthal about the US forcing RT to register as a foreign agent.

Max asks why the Israel lobby who has such massive influence on foreign policy is not asked to register as a foreign agent, and why the Saudi lobby isn't asked the same, and why the likes of CNN and MSNBC never talk about the brutal mass-terrorism the Saudis are inflicting on Yemen. And, of course, he asks why no MSM journalists are defending RT but have in fact been pushing for this scenario:

How long can Tucker keep up his 'totally bewildered' persona.
It's a good act though.

Conspicuous silence from the OSCE and NUJ
regarding this McCarthyist hysterical racist anti free speech policy.

The yanks and UK establishment don't fear election meddling or propaganda from RT.
What they truly fear is their own citizens hearing the real truth about their imperialist wars for profit and geopolitical power

"First they came for RT.... etc"

Meanwhile Newspapers like the daily mail and Irish times, those bastions of free speech, are striking home and giving the red scare the front page treatment for their masters while the hysteria is high, no doubt in the hope of driving similar restrictions in the EU which also has much of it's bad behaviour laid bare on RT while crickets chirp on the other stations:



The Irish times is giving this lie a front page:

I wonder would our own RTE and Times churnalists
consider all daring to comment on this thread as russian agents?

To be honest, I think some of this russia stuff, like much of the transgender/abortion type debates and to a certain extent the migrant debates are a political diversion which gives the political class and elites cover while they pick all of our pockets clean while we are busy getting red faced and fighting amongst ourselves over identity politics and reds under the beds etc.

the replacement of the double Irish with the single malt loopholes and the systematic selloff of Irish resources and property to foreign interests and rentiers and the collusion of the banking establishment with this process are just a few things that come to mind.

To paraphrase:
"Without socialism, only the accents of the landlords will change" - James Connolly

It's hilarious to listen to these fake SJW types banging on passionately about racism in one breath then essentially demonising russian people in the next, some even going so far as to play down 27 million russian deaths to save us all from nazi fascist rule. Another type of racism which is apparently ok.

We let these companies have too much power. Real ministry of truth stuff here.

Google plans to 'de-rank' Russia Today and Sputnik to combat misinformation

Alphabet chief executive Eric Schmidt says Google and other tech companies must act against state-run Russian news agencies to stop spread of falsehoods

Eric Schmidt, the chief executive of Google’s parent company Alphabet, has said the search engine is preparing to take action against state-run Russian news agencies, including Russia Today and Sputnik, which are accused of spreading propaganda by US intelligence agencies.

“We’re working on detecting this kind of scenario ... and de-ranking those kinds of sites,” Schmidt said, in response to a question at an event in Halifax, Canada. “It’s basically RT and Sputnik. We’re well aware and we’re trying to engineer the systems to prevent it.”

Google has faced criticism for promoting the two news sites by including them in its Google News service – a curated list of legitimate news sites – as well as other algorithmic services that select and promote news.

Schmidt described the previous approach of the technology industry to misinformation as “naive”, arguing that “almost all the things in Alphabet and the other tech companies can be understood as the maturation of what we do.

“Ten years ago I thought that everyone would be able to deal with the internet because the internet, as we all knew, was full of falsehoods as well as truths. But faced with the data, from what we’ve seen from Russia in 2016 and with other actors around the world, we have to act.”
