Today, the EU have voted by a wide margin, to stop RT TV stations beaming their 'propaganda' into EU member countries. They have lumped the 'progaganda' of RT into the same catagory as propaganda from ISIS . shocked smack

How strange, nothing yet in the UK media that Ive seen about the demonstrations in London today, about such proposed censorship - but I turn on RT, and theres information about the EU vote and the mention of the UK demo! BBC is so slow - or already keeping us in the dark under orders???

To me ,if Ive understood the situation correcty this EU vote seems scandalous . We are already in trouble with Russia who insist we are freezing RT bank accounts here which may hinder their operations , despite the UK saying that our state owned NatWest bank acted independently .Is that the truth I wonder? All seems a really dangerous escalating situation .Gets harder to know what to believe every day about everything--- if we are prevented from seeing RT (and if that succeeds other foreign channels may follow) we really wont be living in a 'free' country , and we will only learn what the UK govt want us to learn about.

A friend of mine regularly appears on RT (an former BBC investigative journalist) , and yes it does imo have a propagandist bias but it actually brings to light a lot of stuff the MSM don't touch or put their own spin on . In some ways its helpeful knowing what the other side are saying even if you think its bias

I follow RT and they are very often first with any international breaking story.
As for bias and propaganda - BBC fits that bill very nicely IMHO

As Venice said there is only RT who covers 'demo's' etc. Not only the large ones in London but also regionally too. They covered - live- the shambolic White Man March in Liverpool, last year, I felt, without bias.

I also agree with Softys point of view.

Oh, and it's always interesting to compare the reporting of a 'breaking News' story with say, Sky News. Sky News are so sensationalist in their reporting- I can hardly bear to watch it.

Yes, they display it over and over and over.
