But... but... America. Nice try, though. Trusting a journalist from a state owned media company of an authoritarian regime, which is heavily invested in Syria is (((DEEPLY STUPID))).

Not one of the networks you mentioned, except for RT, is state owned and run by an authoritarian regime. Just leave that mic on the floor, before you hurt yourself.

Bunching all those up together is just simple minded and giving RT way too much credit.

 

We were talking about RT specifically here, why would I start mentioning anything else? Unless,I wanted to engage in whataboutism. Hmm...

And proclaiming that multiple different news organizations are different sides of the same coin is an opinion, not a fact.  You'd only be able to state that as a fact if there was an actual coin that said "CNN, NBC, ABC" on the front and "FOX and RT" on the back.

No, I'm just responding to the phrase "just stated a fact" when you posted an opinion.  I agree with your opinion, but it is just an opinion, not an objective fact.

Here's an example:

US power in the world is declining, having reached its peak between the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991 and the start of the Iraq war in 2003. Two dangers are emerging: one is the feckless nature of Trump administration which acts as a sort of out-of-control wrecking ball, though the damage done is limited by Trump’s low attention span and divisions in Washington.
