Russian/Qatari propaganda channels, RT/AJ+, are the new "news sources".
It never ceases to amaze how people can be super critical of biased western corporate news outlets like CNN and FOX, while embracing without a second though propaganda channels like RT (Russia Today) and AJ+ (Al Jazeera). In case people don't know this, both RT and AJ+ are both paid and sponsored by the Russian dictatorship and the Qatari Autocracy respectively. They do not broadcast "news" or "objective information" but only what propaganda those despotic regimes chose to put on air. The "journalists" who work for them are either useful idiots at best, or just hired mercenaries that would write and publish ANYTHING they are told to publish, as long as they get paid. But somehow the well deserved scrutiny that western media gets, seems to completely be tossed out of the window when it comes to these propaganda channels and their content, which is, at best, highly biased half truths, and at worst, absolute lies and propaganda.
