RT's editor-in-chief gave an interview to an Associated Press correspondent saying that the American media in Russia "is 100% biased," end of quote.

Everything that's getting published, I quote again: "is aimed to benefit the US in all cases without exception."

According to Simonyan, American media agencies operating in Russia have been working in that fashion for many years.

Margarita Simonyan, RT editor-in-chief:

"Listen, your own president thinks that most of your media is completely fake. And you want me to tell you otherwise?

I don't know, you're an American, your President is American, your media is American and I'm referring to what the American media is doing in Russia.

They are 100% biased, always publishing pro-American articles in Russian against Russia, without exception. There's not a hint of balanced reporting.

They have been allowed to do that in Russia for decades.

Now the US is saying that foreign media agencies that are operating on American soil can't share a different perspective?

If that's what you're saying, and, keep in mind, the US has always strived to be "a beacon of democracy," then it's time for the American media to be put under the same restrictions in Russia.”
