Having already been singled out by Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova for reporting fake news about non-existent collusion between Russia and the Trump presidential campaign, CNN might view the latest move on the part of the Russia Duma as a signal that it’s time to tell their staff to start packing.
On Friday the Russian lower house of parliament, the State Duma, posted a notification that they have approved a proposal to initiate an investigation into U.S. media organizations that operate inside Russia.
The investigation will be conducted by the Duma’s information policy, technologies and communications committee. The stated goal will be to determine whether outlets, including CNN, the Voice of America, Radio Liberty and “other American media” are complying with Russian law.
The statement explained that the Russian action was a direct response to an attack against Russian new outlet RT by New Hampshire Senator Jeanne Shaheen. The dimwitted Democrat introduced a bill, a little more irritation for Russia, that gives the DOJ new authority to investigate potential violations of the Foreign Agents Registration Act by RT.
Of course if it’s passed and the Trump administration doesn’t act upon it, that will give Democrats more fuel for their fabricated fire of collusion, clearly part of the motivation for it. Her comments stated , “We have good reason to believe that RT News is coordinating with the Russian government to spread misinformation and undermine our democratic process. The American public has a right to know if this is the case.”
Much of the American public recognizes this for what it is, the Democrats exploring every possible link they can to accuse the President of collusion with Russia or to imply that Russia is meddling in our domestic affairs. They’re a Russian owned outlet, there’s going to be bias just as there is with the Marxist Democrat mainstream propagandists in the US and the globalist masters they serve. At least with RT they’re honest about who they work for and their reporting is actually more objective than anything the mainstream leftist media produces.
A more truthful statement could be made stating similarly, “We have good reason to believe that [insert outlet – CNN, NBC, CBS, ABC, MSNBC, PBS] Fake News is coordinating with the Democrats and Global Government Establishment to spread misinformation and undermine our democratic process. The American public has a right to know if this is the case.” Any interest in writing that one up with your dirty hands, Shaheen?
Konstantin Zatulin, an MP from the pro-Kremlin United Russia party, proposed an investigation as retaliation for what he described as a “repressive” U.S. move against RT, mentioning Shaheen and her pathetic exercise in partisan politics by name.
In noting the Democrat bill and the Russian legislative response, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova, who had that little dustup with CNN a couple of weeks ago, said that Shaheen should have also included a list of books recommended for burning.
Clearly risking another Cold War is nothing of concern for the Marxist Democrats. They’ll poke the bear with everything they’ve got if it helps preserve their fading power.
