MOSCOW/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Kremlin-backed television station RT America registered Monday with the U.S. Department of Justice as a “foreign agent” in the United States, the outlet’s editor in chief said and the Department of Justice confirmed later in the day.

....Department of Justice insisted that RT America comply with registration requirements under the Foreign Agent Registration Act (FARA). Under the act, RT will be required to disclose financial information.

Moscow has repeatedly denied the allegations of election meddling and said it views the actions against RT as an unfriendly act.

But RT’s editor in chief, Margarita Simonyan, said on Monday that it would comply with the demand in order to avoid further legal action by the U.S. government.

“Between a criminal case and registration, we chose the latter. We congratulate American freedom of speech and all those who still believe in it,” Simonyan said on Twitter.

The Department of Justice confirmed that it received a registration from T&R Productions LLC, which has operated studios for RT, hired and paid U.S.-based employees and produced English-language programming.

“Americans have a right to know who is acting in the United States to influence the U.S. government or public on behalf of foreign principals,” said acting Assistant Attorney General Dana Boente.

You know that also applies to members of the DNC who are trying to rig the primaries, right? We Americans have the right to know about that shit, too, so the Russian leak of DNC emails falls under that umbrella of protection and full disclosure.

Oh noes RT red pilled Americans that's horrible.

You know if flipped every Role around right now. America would be gushing over a Netflix series called the "Motherland" Where good Socialist Americans pay homage to the Russian Red State and not our Patriotic Roots. Putin would be a regular guest of honor at the White House, and Hillary would be President and John Podesta would be SOS.
Luckily Putin isn't a stark raving lunatic Commie like American Liberals are. Fuck even Gorbachev says "the most perplexing development in recent History, is that the EU would want to recreate the Soviet Union in West Europe. "

Hard Talk show on BBC World News is pretty good - the host asks tough questions of world leaders and influential people, yet is polite about it.

He also said the following:

"Peace is not unity in similarity but unity in diversity, in the comparison and conciliation of differences.”

“Americans have a severe disease — worse than AIDS. It's called the winner's complex.”

“The ecological crisis, in short, is the population crisis. Cut the population by 90% and there aren't enough people left to do a great deal of ecological damage.”
