Russia Orders Investigation into U.S. Media Organizations Operating in the Country

Written by  Katherine Rodriguez

The Russian parliament has ordered an investigation into U.S. media organizations, including CNN and the Voice of America, “for compliance of their activities with Russian legislation,” according to a statement made on its website Friday.

The State Duma, or lower house in Russian parliament, ordered an “audit” of Radio Liberty, the Voice of America, CNN, and other U.S. media to see if they are breaking any of the nation’s laws, USA Today reported.

The decision was reportedly made in retaliation against a bill introduced by Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) earlier this week that would allow the Department of Justice to use more tools to investigate state-owned Russian media outlet RT America for potential violations of the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA).

“We have good reason to believe that RT News is coordinating with the Russian government to spread misinformation and undermine our democratic process,” said Shaheen in a press release. “The American public has a right to know if this is the case. RT News has made public statements boasting that it can dodge our laws with shell corporations, and it’s time for the Department of Justice to investigate.”

Maria Zakharova, spokesperson for the the Russian Foreign Ministry, criticized Shaheen’s bill, saying that the senator should have also drawn up a list of books for burning, Reuters reports.

It's hard to defame a pathological liar.

Considering that six Jewish-owned companies control 96% of western world media (tapnewswire com) it is likely that the Russian commission will find that 96% of western world media, operating in Russia, is Jewish-controlled and broadcasts propaganda.
This is the same media that continues to support the defamation of president Trump, while continuing to support the evil Bush-CIA-Clinton-Obama-DNC attempted coup détat of the U.S. presidential election of 2016.
