Police Brutality, the US Media, and Systematic Racism in the United States



Significant portions of the above were filmed by RT, which gave me some pause as to whether I should post this.

But, heck, even RT occasionally gets something right!

1. no, your intuition was right in the first place--you shouldn't post...

 

...anything by RT. You should delete it and post something on the same subject by a reputable, legitimate source. Maddow, even Democracy Now

If essential and important points are revealed, who am I to be censorious?

3. the RT threads are from Putin explainers whose goal is

 

to whitewash the image of the Kremlin & Putin while presenting a kind of fake progressivism that harps on the problems in the west while downplaying the crimes and disasters of the Russian regime.

To answer your question, reasonable DUers don't present "essential and important points" from heavily biased sources like FOX or RT or Press TV (Iran) because we don't know what's being conveniently left out, we don't know if we're getting anything like the whole picture. We do each other a disservice when we put up that kind of stuff. If there are good points or info in the segment, they will be found in some other source--Maddow, Democracy Now, etc.
