"The most insidious aspect of Assange's show is not what is in it, but what isn't. Russia Today â now styled RT â is state-owned and Kremlin-controlled. It is remarkable for how little reporting it devotes to what is going on inside Russia today. There is no mention, for example, of top-level corruption, Vladimir Putin's alleged secret fortune â referenced in US embassy cables leaked by WikiLeaks â or the brutal behaviour of Russian security forces and their local proxies in the north Caucasus." And do you think that US channes devote time--any time--to cover the behavior of American security forces and their local proxies throughout the world?
