    Aside from pointing out the fact that they spread their poison in DC now - very informative piece.

    For those of us who completely missed the Jill Steyn campaign, this successfully demonstrates that stupid is not endemic among Trump supporters, and areas "left of the mainstream Democratic Party" host a number of choice imbeciles. Many with graduate degrees and talent for broadcast nonsense spewing. Sigh. I guess I could postulate that all of these are St. Petersburgh - produced fakes and sleeper FSB agents, but I fear these are very real. These are the left wing folks that didn't bother to vote for "neo-liberal disaster" Hillary, and they all can go love themselves in unnatural ways.

    Those ways, these days, are all the craze.

    It might be quite interesting to see how they spin things.

    They will no doubt just spin existing conspiracy theories, from both the Left and the Right. Plus whitewashing all things Russia. Meh.

    Despite the name, NPR and PBS aren't "public government media", very little of their funding is federal. It's Voice of America that's actually the U.S. government's news media.

    In coverage, I can't really tell the difference between NPR and other center-left mainstream media. Their tone is more urbane, but the narrative is the same.

    Well Duh. Sputnik is the direct equivalent of VoA/Radio Liberty. Only more deceptive and unhinged.

    I listened to Radio Sputnik briefly yesterday. Their radio tower is pretty low powered, audible in the city of Washington itself but not really outside the Beltway. The show I heard was Fault Lines, an "odd couple" show with one host from the left and one from the right, talking about how bad the mainstream media are and how great Radio Sputnik is and how no one at all has told them what to say. I wasn't exactly blown away, but it wasn't any worse than any other talk radio show I've heard. If their wattage were high enough I might add it to my list of things to cycle through, but the low-powered transmitter is pretty frustrating.
