WAS ABBY MARTIN FORCED OFF AIR AT RT? BY WHAT PRESSURES? KERRY OR RT OR ISRAEL?
HUFF POST = RT Host Abby Martin Goes Spectacularly Off-Message In Ukraine Broadcast
Russia Today’s Abby Martin = Won’t Go To Crimea
Russia Today = “Contrary to the popular opinion, RT doesn’t beat its journalists into submission, and they are free to express their own opinions, not just in private but on the air. This is the case with Abby’s commentary on the Ukraine….We respect her views, and the views of all our journalists, presenters and program hosts, and there will be absolutely no reprimands made against Ms. Martin….In her comment Ms. Martin also noted that she does not possess a deep knowledge of reality of the situation in Crimea. As such we’ll be sending her to Crimea to give her an opportunity to make up her own mind from the epicentre of the story.”
Russia Today’s Liz Wahl = Quits Live On Air In Protest At ‘Whitewashing Of Putin’
Abby Martin denounced the presence of Russian troops in Ukraine, saying she “cannot stress enough” how strongly she feels about Russia’s invasion of Crimea. = She “wanted to say something from my heart about the ongoing political crisis in Ukraine and Russia’s military occupation of Crimea…Just because I work here, for RT, doesn’t mean I don’t have editorial independence and I can’t stress enough how strongly I am against any military intervention in sovereign nations’ affairs…What Russia did is wrong.”
“All we can do now is hope for a peaceful outcome for a terrible situation and prevent another full-blown Cold War between multiple superpowers. Until then, I’m telling the truth as I see it,” she ended.
Russia Today = USA Media portrays as the voice of the Kremlin
Russia Today = Reporters Without Borders describing it as a “step of the state to control information.” = Calls RT virulently anti-American + white-washing criticism of Putin
Martin = Calls the government’s 9ll version of the events “propaganda”, and has accused Israel of using “Hitler’s methods”.

Abby Martin = On Russia Today showed the Gershon Jacobson Foundation logo on ‘Breaking the Set’ — Blogger Nanayakkara “writes that I accused Israel of war crimes, terrorism, and practicing an apartheid state through multiple reports I had made the week prior.”

USA MEDIA FACT coverage is absolutely appalling and nearly infintesimal.
