    Sorry man but RT is relay good news channel just not because it's a reality area ,it's also cover both of sides .this news channel also challenges west pro propaganda , if you are not agree with that but i am sure that you will like different view .RT REPORT on Ukraine crisis is best coverage because it's verified by Ukraine people.

    After Modi's victory, there's a drop in positive coverage of events in India by RT. Could it be because Russians and Nehru-Gandhis go way back, or because Putin sold Russia's soul to China for $450 billion?

    :rofl::rofl::rofl:

    No, it's an irony comprehension fail on your part, Razor. Which itself is ironic given RT's story was a poor attempt at being ironic.

    RT reminds me of Al Jazeera and both of them disturb me. Not so much because they are "balanced" or anti- Western (they'll have to try much harder to damage Western interests as much as, off the top of my head, the Guardian and The New York Times have) but more for how stupid they are. As a human, I'm really disappointed that there are people naive and gullible enough (or so full of hate) that RT's/ Al Jazeera's reporting seems reasonable.

    There are quite a few sources in Russia that are betting big on BRICS and India, but I have seen one RT video that was particularly negative of India. It has been posted somewhere in DFI.

    I found a few months old article from the leading American think tank Carnegie Endowment for International Peace:
    http://m.ceip.org/moscow/eurasiaoutlook/?fa=56193&lang=ru

    About NSA Ajit Doval it says:

    As for the prime minister’s inner circle, the legendary figure of the National Security Advisor Ajit Kumar Doval looms particularly large. This post cannot fit all of his famous exploits, and many pages of his biography still remain classified. But even the known facts testify to his knowledge of Russia and a long record of cooperation with this country. As a head of the Intelligence Bureau’s operation wing in the 1990’s—the post he had held for ten years, Ajit Doval was involved in organizing the effort to assist Afghanistan’s Northern Alliance, which was supported by Russia, India, and Iran. It is clear that he had numerous contacts with the Russian side in the course of the three country’s cooperation on this issue.

    Why Can't the American Government Stop Talking about RT?

    Two reasons:
    • It is fully aware of the broad, global reach RT has.
    • The news RT reports is not the news the US wants people be informed of.

    Ironically banning all 24 hour news channels would be good for freedom of speech

    Good job masking the fact that this is a report from the Finland Times. :thumb:

    Try harder next time.

    I would trust RT analysis more than even NDTV, Aaj Tak and ABP News and IBN-7. These channels have become just like their western owners.

    RT has one of the finest balance of news in international media.

    Whether it si covering Greek crisis, bombing of Yugoslavia or anything else, they come out with the finest of balance.

    The only reason they use neocon assaults on Russian media is because they cannot bomb the RT building in Moscow.

    I do watch ndtv sometimes... Can't say it's as concise as rt. Interesting to see that the minutae of small trade deals is news worthy though.

    Hello there! I am Indian, and I have nothing to do with invading Iraq or the oil/petrol stuff you have written.
