Bryan Macdonald, an Irish journalist, comments on the Guardian’s latest attack on RT. While UK press regulators consistently find the Russian broadcaster’s practices fair and acceptable, the self-anointed guardians of the free press resort to cheap verbal assaults and distortions.
“We are living in a strange period of history where the, outwardly, liberal press is arguing for censorship. Not for ideological reasons, but because RT’s success frustrates a gang who’ve had the field all to themselves for far too long. They are behaving like a spoilt child who doesn’t want to share their football with other children.”
But, hey, is this news anymore?
