“CNN’s Amanpour show edits out criticism by visiting RT host” Anissa Naouai November 24, 2014

Click for Source Interview by CNN’s Amanpour of RT’s Naouai

CNN’s Amanpour interviewed RT’s Anissa Naouai to discuss CNN calling RT ‘a heated propaganda war’ by the Russian government.  CNN EDITED OUT Naouai’s criticism of CNN’s own (CORPORATE) propaganda exercises.

THE HEART OF WHAT IS SO WRONG ABOUT USA CORPORATE-STATE MSM:

NAOUAI:  It’s an absurd question coming from someone that’s propagated the line of the State Department for over 15 years. I mean, it’s absolutely absurd FOR CNN.

AMANPOUR: You’ve got to be kidding me…

NAOUAI: You’ve propagated the line of the State Department for over 15 years, starting with Yugoslavia and all the way into Syria. And now you’re doing it for Ukraine, essentially. Absolutely, I’m talking to you.

AMANPOUR: Oh, my goodness. Have you seen any of my reports about Syria? Have you seen any of my reports about Syria?

NAOUAI: I’ve seen lots of your reports and in not one report where you questioning the United States government and their policy. And we, with our Russian propaganda, question those arms to the FSA, question those arms to al-Nusra and other leagues. And now today we have ISIS(L).

AMANPOUR: Anissa, I’m really now – listen, I invited you on this program – I invited you on this program to have an adult discussion.

NAOUAI: Absolutely. But your audience should be aware of this, Christiane. Your audience should be aware of this. You should disclose this to them.

AMANPOUR:  Oh, yes. They are aware of it, which is why they’ve been watching me for a long time. But listen to me, I would like you seriously…

NAOUAI: I’m glad they do, and I’m sure they know who James Rubin is, I’m sure they watch your work in Yugoslavia.

AMANPOUR:  As an act of research and as an act of education, go back and find all my work on Yugoslavia and all my work on Syria and match that with the policy of the United States government and furthermore, go back and watch what launched me and that was a to-and-fro with President Clinton challenging his policy on Bosnia and Yugoslavia. So Anissa, listen, I have respected you but I really don’t think that you should be doing this to me, of all people, on this – on this broadcast and on this satellite link. And you’re wrong. And I challenge you to go back…

NAOUAI: Yes, how dare someone tell CNN to check who their sponsors are, what governments they are working with!  How dare someone come on CNN and say that!

AMANPOUR:  Hey, excuse me, no, no, no, you just said whatever you wanted to say. When you become ad hominem to me, that’s a problem, because you’re not doing it from a basis of knowledge.

NAOUAI: Well, let your viewers decide, Christiane. I think that’s the fairest way out of this debate.  Let your viewers decide. Let them go back to your work in Yugoslavia and see if it doesn’t fall exactly in line with the State Department’s line.

AMANPOUR:  …you can be sure I’m not putting this on the air, Anissa. It’s a personal attack.

NAOUAI: I know that interview very well.  Christiane you were propagating war..  You were basically encouraging Bill Clinton to go to war.  I don’t know what Bill Clinton wanted. I’m talking about your work as a journalist.

AMANPOUR: Anissa, come on; you’ve lost me, babe. Thank you very much. Thank you very much indeed. I really appreciate it.  Thank you so much. Alright. Now I have to pretend to thank you.

MIKHAIL KASYANOV:  Mr. Putin is sometimes even angry that Western society doesn’t accept his regime as a normal one.

AMANPOUR: Anissa, is RT designed to counter a bad image problem for RUSSIA in the West?

ANISSA NAOUAI: RT airs to a global audience — it’s not really watched in Russia; it’s in English.  Viewers of RT understand we have nothing to hide — we are funded by the Kremlin and our budget is completely open — completely transparent.  It’s so interesting that CNN asks these kind of questions — CNN journalists have left because documentaries on Bahrain haven’t been run like “I-Revolution” and “Eye on Georgia” and “Eye on Kazakhstan” and “Eye on Lebanon” which are essentially government-sponsored programs — NEVER disclosed to the audience. You really have to go on the site and dig for it to find that these are not sort of just basic, unbiased reporting on the ground. These are government sponsored programs aired on television. So it’s interesting to have questions asked of us, staff at “RT,” how do we feel about kind of representing the Russian government.

Our RT viewers know we’re funded by the Kremlin and watch with this in mind. And this is why we’re getting viewers. We cite the Ukrainian government and NATO and the State Department and the American side along with the Russian perspective that we feel is being sidelined in USA MSM.

AMANPOUR: Anissa, do you believe RT is a counter weight to USA MSM information? — in Nature of what’s happening in Ukraine — Ukraine is anti-Russian separatists and has pro-neo-Nazis, fascists in the government are ant-Russians and President Putin has said it several times — “We’re truly concerned that the wish to start ethnic cleansing may soon arise there.  We’re afraid that the Ukraine will become immersed in neo-Nazism. You can see people wearing swastikas on their sleeves and the SS insignia on the helmets of some units fighting in the Eastern Ukraine at the moment.”  Anissa, my point to you is, why go to such efforts to brand Ukraine as such, when the polling data itself says that less than two percent of the people actually voted for any kind of far right group?

NAOUAI: Yes, I agree it’s important — perhaps exaggerated threat of neo-Nazis — But the Russian people lost almost 30 million people fighting fascism during WW II.  There’s clear documentation, Christiane.  There are people that walk through the streets of Kiev with swastikas on — tying in this glorification of Nazism with the anti-Russian sentiment.  Putin was referring to civilians being killed, which organizations like Human Rights Watch, like Amnesty International, like your own reporter – Diana Magnay in a phenomenal report showed the horrific things done to civilians in the East calling themselves Ukrainians and saying stop killing us, Petro Poroshenko. Stop killing us. So to imply that this is not going on, that civilians are not being killed by the Ukrainian army – let’s be very specific here – and this is what you have on  camera. Was this report run on CNN around the clock? No!

AMANPOUR: Anissa, thousands of people have been killed but I’m talking about a policy of fascism and neo-Nazism, which the Russian president and the foreign minister and other senior officials keep repeating. — you admitted there might be exaggeration.

NAOUAI: I didn’t admit that it was an exaggeration. I said who are we to say that it’s an exaggeration as non-Russians. 30 millions of them were killed in World War II. I said, “Who are we to say it’s an exaggeration?” That’s what I said exactly.  I didn’t admit that it was an exaggeration.

AMANPOUR:  Mr. Kasyanov what are the consequences of inflating these Fascist numbers to tar the Ukrainian government as neo-fascist when 2% voted for far right groups in the last elections in May.

KASYANOV: I will say that’s the deliberate policy of Mr. Putin — Simply bizarre.  Mr. Putin thinks all people are just simply idiots all over the world. And what the reason for annexation for Crimea, what the reason of acceleration of these military conflict in the Eastern Ukraine? There’s some kind of imagination that there is a danger for Russian-speaking people. That’s absolutely lie.  [FACT: 3,000+ MURDERED IN EASTERN UKRAINE]

AMANPOUR: How successful has RT been in Russia?

KASYANOV: They never describe reasons why just this annexation and the war started. They prefer to describe the Hundreds of people killed and just problems.  In Russia, it’s absolutely successful. People are fooled by state propaganda. All media under full control of Mr. Putin — enhanced adoration of him and his team and 85% support Putin’s policy in Ukraine — even educated people think that annexation of Crimea to Russia is fair, because they got their information through their textbooks in schools, that Crimea was always Russian.

AMANPOUR: Anissa, a gathering fear in the West is the idea that President Putin is “putting the nuclear gun on the table now.” President Putin has told domestic audiences that outsiders should, quote, “not mess with us, because Russia is one of the leading nuclear powers.” How do you decide to cover this when you have your editorial meetings?

NAOUAI: Again, RT airs to the West — a global audience — So we cover stories that we think affect a global audience and especially with the Ukraine crisis, a lot of the mainstream narrative dictates what exactly we cover.  We see a lot of holes in the stories that you’re telling your audience, holes that can be easily closed by just going online, trying to verify videos, to get a different perspective on the air. That helps a lot in trying to decide what we’re going to cover — it’s important to be careful when you start bringing these sort of nuclear threats taken out of context — a very serious issue. And as journalists, we need to be careful when we pick and choose what quotes we want to give to a global audience. I have to say I do not know what you’re referencing to get your quotes.  I’m not sure exactly what channel you’re referring to or what speech you’re referring to. Putin has made it very clear to the Russian people that he’s not looking for war, but he will continue to protect Russian interests.

NAOUAI:  When you’re talking about military aggression and about perspectives of Russia around the world, all you need to do is look at a map. Look at a map and look where Ukraine is and look where Russia is and look where the United States is and then look at all of the countries and bases surrounding Russia. And tell the audience again that Russia is the aggressor here. [USA HAS OVER 600 BASES – MANY CLOSE TO THE RUSSIAN BORDES].

AMANPOUR: Let’s be fair also – RT and all its other incarnations does get traction inside Russia. Channel 1 made international headlines last week because it broadcast, quote, “sensational photographs of what it said were satellite images of a Ukrainian fighter jet shooting down Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17.”  289 people on board.  USA critics pointed out discrepancies in this imagery — Wrong markings for the Malaysian flight — A fake image. When that happens, should RT be responsibile to point that out?

NAOUAI:  I know the image you’re talking about — was on the Internet for quite a couple of months – unfortunately that channel took the bait without verifying it.  RT didn’t show it.  Your effort to condemn the First Channel for mistakes that we’ve all make – and I remember very well Jim Clancy of CNN showing a video in Donetsk in May of this year of a supposed helicopter being downed by these anti-Kiev fighters — a video from Syria — CNN never did a retraction. Perhaps like CNN they were trying to have a scoop. It’s very unfortunately very dangerous when journalists take the bait.  So all I can do as a journalist is condemn these as mistakes.

AMANPOUR:  Mr. Kasyanov saying, “we are a nuclear power, too” Let’s face it this is a hot war between a major nuclear power, Russia, and a nuclear alliance. How dangerous is that right now? What message is President Putin trying to send?

KASYANOV:  That is absolutely irresponsible and a reckless policy. I don’t want the president of my country to behave this way…getting people scared about Russia’s behavior — such a tension between the West and Russia.  Mr. Putin is destroying the future of our country.

AMANPOUR: Could this rhetoric have unintended consequences?

KASYANOV: It could. It is reckless and irresponsible for a member of the Security Council to behave this way.

AMANPOUR: What does President Putin want?  There was a ceasefire agreed in Minsk, there was an agreement, it’s been violated, there are Russian forces moving again into Eastern Ukraine. What does President Putin want?

NAOUAI: I think President Putin has made it very clear to both Russia and to the international community that what he wants is for Russia to be respected, on an equal playing base, and that he wants dialogue to prevail. I think it’s very dangerous to pretend these kind of warnings are secret. Obviously you found this apparent secret nuclear conversation that he had to Russian media. Everything is available.  There are so many perspectives available online. You can analyze Russian media. You can analyze CNN. And the audience can go and view for themselves. But I think Putin has made it very clear that he wants stability for his country, and in this region, and he wants to get there through dialogue.

AMANPOUR: Mr. Kasyanov, what do you think President Putin wants?

KASYANOV:  I think Mr. Putin doesn’t want just to build up a new Russian empire. What he wants is to strengthen his support inside Russia, to keep power — to have external enemy and quick victories — Georgia and now Ukraine. And he wants to the West to accept his regime.

AMANPOUR: What do you think his reaction is to Western leaders the past several months?

KASYANOV: A real shock he didn’t expect at transatlantic unity.  And secondly that the EU’s unified position with USA.  Mr. Putin tried to divide countries inside EU. But the EU directly supported those sanctions against individuals who are responsible for all just these misdeeds — state corporations and state banks.

AMANPOUR:  Anissa, you’re American so what are your thoughts about the whole media landscape as independent media is shut down?  Is that healthy for the society or not?

NAOUAI: I don’t think that’s a really accurate picture of what’s happening. I can’t name one television station that’s been shut down, first of all.  I just came back from News Exchange, where we asked CNN executives why they were supposedly stopping their broadcast in Russia. They said it was a technical glitch with the cable companies.  So you’re announcing right now that the Russian government is making it difficult for CNN to work in Russia.

AMANPOUR: Right now there is legislation underway that makes it difficult for us to broadcast. And it’s not just us. It’s television all over the place. But my real question to you is: do you feel that it’s healthy for a society just to get a diet of one side rather than the other? And that is what’s happening.

NAOUAI: [CNN is LYING!]  I disagree that that’s what’s happening. Certainly, RT tries to show both sides of every story, but we (LIKE CNN does for Corporations) show more of a Russian perspective, because that’s the perspective that’s being sidelined (by USA MSM).

NAOUAI:  It’s an absurd question coming from someone that’s propagated the line of the State Department for over 15 years. I mean, it’s absolutely absurd FOR CNN.

AMANPOUR: You’ve got to be kidding me…

NAOUAI: You’ve propagated the line of the State Department for over 15 years, starting with Yugoslavia and all the way into Syria. And now you’re doing it for Ukraine, essentially. Absolutely, I’m talking to you.
