Head of RT Schools Voice of America Over Bogus Washington Picket

'Colleagues from the VOA, aren’t you really complaining about RT overtaking you on all platforms, including topics inside the US?'

A recent post (in Russian) by RT's general director Margarita Simonyan at her blog which shows that Voice of America could learn a thing or two from Mr. Putin's 'propaganda bullhorn'.

VOA pretends that this is a serious demonstration

Two days after a "rally" against RT in Washington that was attended by six people, VOA published its version of events.

Apparently, much time has been spent on creative editing to ensure that no one finds out the total number of protesters was SIX!

VOA report about the rally in Washington against RT - not a word on the number of protesters. It features close-ups and close-up interviews, so the overall picture is not discernable.

Well, our videos from the rally, where the number of protesters can be seen, also includes a VOA journalist holding a placard under himself and directs "protesters", who only speak in Russian (our target audience is English-speaking).

Voice of America: “for the sake of a good story, we will not disclose the whole picture”.

Propaganda facepalm.

Colleagues from the VOA, aren’t you really complaining about RT overtaking you on all platforms, including topics inside the US?

Refrain from engaging in propaganda, and maybe someone will watch you and might even listen to you.
