New York Times Reviews Kansas City Russian Radio Propaganda



Here's a quick rundown of how this story got started . . .

Back in January, a media journalist dude did all of the heavy lifting and posted the filing dox on Twitter.

Last week one of the KCUR freelancers reached out and talked to the guy.

And finally, the nation's paper of record weighs in . . .

Playing on Kansas City Radio: Russian Propaganda

Radio Sputnik, a propaganda arm of the Russian government, began broadcasting on three Kansas City-area radio stations during prime drive time. KCXL, in Liberty, Mo., carries programming produced by Radio Sputnik. Credit...


Meanwhile . . .

Most people haven't bothered to check it our or switch from satellite or streaming services in order to go back and listen to legacy terrestrial radio.

You decide . . .

Thanks for the history, keep seeing this pop up on FB. Almost like they're pushing people to check it out.

People ask how Russia managed to interfere in U.S. elections, Ms. Dixon said. “Because they get free airwaves,” she said. “It is called propaganda.”

LOL NYT, LOL ms dixon.

Does anyone remember how the state builds war fever before launching militant each new war? No, forgot already? OK I'll remind ya: a tsunami of wall street financed, MSM delivered, xenophobic hate porn propaganda against the foreign leaders and people. But guess what haters? This one has nukes. Say goodbye to your children as you spew your servile wall street hatred.

How much is TKC's kickback for the continuing posts promoting this Russian network? Comrades here would like to know.

Now Republicans have another choice if they want to check out something other than Fox and Infowars.

So this is how the dimwits get their fake news for their endless false information on Trump and all their failed impeachment attempts

Weird stuff, but not nearly as weird as the alternate reality stuff spewed on the Russia TV cable channel.

Thank goodness KCXL has some really great music programming.
