RT to air WikiLeaks talk show

Agence France-Presse | Jan. 25, 2012

A Russian state television channel said Wednesday that it would exclusively air a television chat show hosted by WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

RT, formerly known as Russia Today, an English language channel funded by the Russian government, said in a statement that Assange “is launching his own talkshow, to be broadcast exclusively on RT.”

Assange had announced the show on Tuesday on the WikiLeaks website saying that it had licensing commitments covering more than 600 million viewers across cable, satellite and terrestrial networks.

A spokeswoman for the channel told AFP that RT had the rights to air the episodes of the chat show first.

The channel did not elaborate, saying that “details of the episodes and the guests featured are secret for now.”

Russia launched RT in 2005 with the aim of broadcasting the Russian point of view on current affairs to international audiences. It cannot be viewed on Russian terrestrial television.

Its head, Margarita Simonyan, recently attended a meeting of media chiefs with Prime Minister Vladimir Putin in which he poured scorn on independent media.

WikiLeaks has earlier released confidential US cables reportedly calling Russia “a virtual mafia state” ruled by “alpha dog” Putin, who is seeking a third Kremlin term in March elections, and not incumbent President Dmitry Medvedev.

However Medvedev said in January that he saw the impact of the WikiLeaks revelations as “quite positive” for international relations.

The 40-year-old Australian former computer hacker is fighting extradition from Britain to Sweden where prosecutors want to question him over allegations that he raped and sexually abused two Swedish women.

England’s highest court will next week hear Assange’s appeal against his extradition.

Assange insists the allegations are politically motivated.

A very interesting development in international relations and broadcasting.
Russian state television is assuming the role of introducing transparency into information broadcasting. A role that the Voice of America was alleged to have occupied for many years.

One tends to conclude that israeli Zionists do not control the Russian broadcasting system. To the extent they now control U.S. media, U.S. politics, the U.S. military, a large percentage of the U.S. congress. One wonders which Zionist-owned mega-buildings will be their next demolition target with which to cash-in on mega-insurance payments.

Which U.S. cities have mega-buildings that have been condemned due to asbestos pollution, or which no longer rake in the mega-profits of twenty years ago, but are still insured for their 1980 value ?

One is wise to believe the opposite of what is published by CNN, FOX and generally broadcast on TV.

The torturing of Bradley Manning reflects what the current leaders of the US Government would like to do to everyone who reveals the truth about the U.S. Government. http://mtracy9.tripod.com/cia_media.htm

Just take a look at the recent report of the GAO audit of the Federal Reserve. The Federal Reserve secretly handed out $16,000,000,000,000.00 (TRILLION) to US banks and corporations and foreign banks everywhere from Scotland to Germany, between December 2007 and June 2010, without notifying the US Congress.

None of which would have come to light were it not for the efforts of congressman Ron Paul, who championed a GAO audit of the Federal Reserve. It is no wonder that the Israeli MOSSAD initiated the defamation program against U.S. Congressman, Dr. Ron Paul. They do not want a genuine American to interrupt their fleecing of the American people, by being elected to the US Presidency. That is one of the reasons “they” murdered John F. Kennedy, Sr. To prevent him from converting ownership of the “Federal Reserve” from Israeli Zionists, and making it the property of Americans instead of Israeli Zionists.
