Got to say I've been finding the news articles very useful as I don't really read any British news outlets so she sorta covers it, for sure. If anyone asks if I read the news, yes I do, via RussiaToday (they're still bias as the rest but offer a more independent and honest view into things, plus they don't censor or fake it).

It's worth noting that RussiaToday (RT) is publically financed from the budget of the Russian Federation. That may make being 'independent and honest' problematic on occasion. In many countries what the media leave out (i.e. don't say / self-censor / are too scared to publish) is often much more important than what they do say.

In 2013 Russia ranked 148th out of 179 countries in the Press Freedom Index from Reporters Without Borders. In the 2015 Freedom House report Russia got a score of 83 (100 being the worst), mostly because of new laws introduced in 2014 that further extended the state control over mass-media.

Whatever, enjoy RT whilst you still can! British regulator Ofcom may not renew the license of the state-funded TV channel. More on this story here:

All of which has nothing to do with Liz's articles. Good job elizabethelden 👍

I watch it via YouTube as I've not been watching live television for years now. Just today RT posted a bunch of videos that Western media would never dare to publicize. And I kinda became a Corbyn fan after hearing what he said on it.
