Perhaps because I also watch some Duetsche Welle, France 24, NHK, CCTV News, and BBC America, this leads me to juxtapose their various messages (along with the major USA broadcasters, of course) against that offered by RT. Consequently, I don’t find it difficult to discover the worm in the apple, occasionally. Moreover, I find all the news programs to have their own national bias based on source. So what? Or more pointedly, what else would you expect? Hence, I advise news junkies to watch and learn, run it through your internal filter and see what pops out at the end. Personally, I find these sources, in combination with others like Bloomberg, WSJ, NYT, WP, and Reuters plus topic specific sources like Stratfor combine to help me achieve a better balance. Thus, I believe myself to be reasonably informed while being reasonably adept at spotting the B.S., which to be fair can be subtle. Is there one best source? No, not really but Reuters, The Economist, Bloomberg, Stratfor, BBC America, CBS, and NHK News are especially fine sources . . . and remember to pay attention to your flimflam-filter.

From my understanding, if they want access to information from the US Government, they have to toe the US official line on important foreign policy and National Security issues, or risk being frozen out!!!

So I can ask the same of you Mr. Brill, how independent are you of the US Government?????

Waste of time.
However, I go to RT Web-site from time to time.
You feel confused because you imagined the RT production as something like “to be approved by Kremlin.”
It is incorrect.
If you look at it as “public” TV, you will see a high-quality alternative content. And nothing related to anti-Americanism or anti-Western propaganda.
Due to the nature of my work as an international forum’s administrator, I don’t see much difference between public-funded BBC and RT in terms of attitudes. Or factual side. Or logic.
Every educated person should get all MSM sources – and to make conclusions him/herself.
