Looks like RT is on its way out. They had a good run though.
RT programming was removed from its two broadcast frequencies in the DC area. The move proves that claims made by the US government that the channel’s registration as a foreign agent would not affect its work were false.
Audiences in the Washington, DC area are no longer able to tune in to RT’s regular air broadcasts. Part of the reason is that MHz Networks, a Virginia-based not-for-profit distributor of international entertainment and news programming, decided to auction their licenses to frequencies previously used to broadcast RT, along with a dozen other outlets. The development was reported by Bloomberg on Thursday, which said that the change will take place on April 1. The auction of licenses happened in March 2017.
What most people don’t know is that RT is basically run by a bunch of liberal women and Armenians. As a result, it was always pushing a left-wing agenda in the West.

Which is fine, I guess. I mean, there are several ways you can push an anti-Western agenda and highlighting the hypocrisy of the modern West is the strategy that they chose. RT ran a lot of social commentary programs that liked to point out that America doesn’t live up to its lofty principles of encouraging democracy and being a fair and just society.
In other words, they were all like “oh so you’re a liberal country eh, America? What about all those for-profit prisons you’ve got, all that corporate bribery of politicians you allow or all the poor Iraqis you killed? That doesn’t sound very liberal does it? You hypocrites.”
So it’s not like you would ever see RT point out the demographic displacement of White people in America and the systematic oppression of the Nationalist Right in the West. They would never stray from the Liberal narrative, just poke holes in it from time to time.
This is exactly the same playbook that Soviet propaganda used back in the day.
They would do stuff like point out that niggers got lynched from time to time in America and that this meant that America was an unjust society.
With RT, the best you would get would be a documentary sympathetic to West Virginia coal miners from time to time.
And in the end, RT made a huge strategic error. They thought they could lean on the Left as allies in America. But we are dealing with a new Left now and it is virulently anti-Russian. The SJW left hates Russia and always will because muh Putin and muh homos getting locked up. And the cuckservative hate Russia as well. Both the GOP and the Dems wouldn’t mind a new Cold War with Russia.
The only people willing to give the Russkies a fair shake are people like Buchanan from the paleocon movement, Ron Paul from the old libertarian right and, of course, the Alt-Right.
So which way, Russian/Armenian media moguls?
Once we get our shit together, perhaps you should bite the bullet and just let people like Andrew Anglin and Mike Enoch have a show on RT where they bash the Deep State, the Neocons and…yes, niggers too. The Western media already says that you’re funding us, and most liberal normies think that Putin is literally Hitler…
Honestly, what do you have to lose at this point anyway, RT?
