Thank you CPT12 for offering different points of view ....

Program: RT News
All the news broadcasts have a spin to it. Just watching the major US networks the last 2 weeks is a testimony to that. Providing other views, even if influenced and or controlled by others, gives me a better view of what is going on in the world. The US mass media is not as free as one would imagine and sadly so. Just consider the Gaza conflict.
Please keep being as independent as possible.
I would like to see Channel 12 broadcast Ukrainian News. All you show is Russian Propaganda (RT) several times a day. This is very unfair to both Americans and Ukrainians who would like to see what is really happening in Ukraine. Please broadcast Ukrainian News and remove the RT Russian Propaganda channel. Thanks
Three years ago I found "Russia Today" to offer an interesting, different perspective on world events. Then two years ago, something happened. Since that time it's been consistently, virulently anti-West "news and opinions" that to me is just strident propaganda. I've stopped watching it. I realize CPT12 offers lots of different perspectives, and I appreciate that. But when free speech turns into hate speech, I have to disconnect from it.
CPT12 Response: Thanks for your email. I appreciate your point of view. Even one of their anchors, Liz Wahl quit on air over the turn RT has taken.
Still, I personally find it fascinating to watch Putin’s spin knowing that it is what it is.
All the Best,
