Russia Today Gets Mocked for their Anti-Americanism


(FEATURING: Comrade Putin, Lenin, Stalin and one decadent capitalist)

Relatively fresh in the fight for carriage in American cable markets, Russia Today stumbled into the ring with all the grace of a drunken Moscow ballerina. Not only does RT lack the lavish funding of its competitors (think Al-Jazeera English), but journalistic integrity as well. In its place you'll see angry anchors and the same depth of investigative reporting found in the school paper. Maybe Russia Today needs a little PR help. In a fit of Western charity, Accuracy in Media has developed a promotional video that highlights the little network's core strengths -- while tipping its hat to the decadent, capitalist audience. Enjoy!

Hat tip to TrevorLoudon.com who notes:

Virulently anti Western Kremlin propaganda channel Russia Today gets a well deserved lampooning.
