RT? Really? Is this what we've come to? Russian propaganda? I mean really, there's PLENTY of shit out there regarding the secrecy of the drone program without resorting to fucking RT.

Well RT is a more reliable source of news than 99% of american news channels. Sad but true. They show some propaganda but not anywhere near as much as the american news does.

Its really not that its more reliable, its that its unreliable in the other direction. If you want the full picture RT allows you top iece it together with information you get from american mainstream media, like CNN.

Why stick with American propaganda when we can get Russian propaganda! The best way to get unbiased information is to get more bias!

If you honestly believe that tripe than why bother staying in the U.S.? Why substitute one source of propaganda for another??

Well you can get your news from an American outlet, but it will probably be owned by time warner cablevision, Comcast, Viacom, CBS, Disney, news Corp, advanced publications, or Hearst Corp.

pick your poison...

Agreed, just goes to show what people will resort to in order to bolster their own opinions (choosing propaganda rather than seeking out facts).

Confirmation bias is strong on voat. I tend to stay away from voat's news subs because of the toxic echo chamber of a community.
