From Russia ... With News

Russian media have a lot to say about the U.S. and they're saying it right where Americans can hear it. Critics — including the FBI — say the cable network RT America and the radio network Sputnik are mouthpieces for the Kremlin. The networks say they're unfairly targeted by naysayers, compounded by concerns over Russian interference in the 2016 election. To discuss it we're joined by Jim Rutenberg, media columnist for The New York Times and author of its recent magazine cover story "RT, Sputnik and Russia's New Theory of War," Garland Nixon, co-host of the show "Fault Lines" on Sputnik Radio, Alexey Kuznetsov, deputy head of news at RT International, Kimberly Marten, a professor at Barnard College and Columbia University specializing in Russia and international relations and Andrew Feinberg, former White House correspondent for Sputnik International.
