RUSSIAN BOOGIE MEN
(The Real News.com)
"The U.S. government's forced designation of RT America as a "foreign agent" is part of a dangerous effort to brand dissenting views as "Russian disinformation," says The Nation's Katrina vanden Heuvel."

"The Department of Justice ordered RT to register as a foreign agent, yet refuses to cite what laws were broken. Furthermore, the government has done nothing to demonstrate how RT journalists are taking orders from the Kremlin or that RT employees have lobbied Congress on behalf of the Russian government, which is required by law. This move is clearly political since ACTUAL foreign lobbyists like the Podesta Group and AIPAC were not threatened with arrests and a test case for a wider campaign of media suppression. The fact is the political establishment is scared to death that more and more of us are abandoning its corporate media, and doesn't want us hearing outside perspectives."
