As the war drums beat forward to dangerous new levels, a congresswoman is calling for her own war on the media… with Russia Today (RT) in particular. If RT was so dangerous, where was this congresswoman protesting or proposing legislation during the Obama administration?
Due to suspected violations of the Foreign Agents Registration Act, New Hampshire Senator Jeanne Shaheen introduced a bill this week that would give the US Justice Department more authority to investigate Russia’s english-language news outlet RT America. Shaheen’s bill would reportedly increase the Department’s power to compel organizations to produce information about their foreign connections and the sources of their funding. Shaheen, a member of the Democratic party, said in a statement, “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.”
