Factual Reporting: MIXED

Notes: RT, originally Russia Today, is a television network funded by the Russian government. It operates cable and satellite television channels directed to audiences outside of Russia as well as providing Internet content in various languages, including Russian. It has right of center coverage of the USA.  They are highly biased in favor of Russia and occasionally runs Pro-state conspiracy stories. The Columbia Journalism Review calls RT “The Kremlin’s propaganda outlet.” They also have a pants on fire claim from Politifact. Although coverage is typically right of center when covering USA news they also do promote pro-Russian propaganda. (5/18/2016) Updated (3/30/2018)
