"The most insidious aspect of Assange's show is not what is in it, but what isn't. Russia Today – now styled RT – 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 – referenced in US embassy cables leaked by WikiLeaks – 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?
