    So you really dont see anything wrong with this? You really think this is a move without any dubiety?

    How would you react if tony blair began a light entertainment show on Israeli state tv? Or if Thatcher had had gone on chilean state tv for an hour of light-hearted banter during thr Pinochet regime - would you defend that?
    No I don't see anything wrong with it and I also couldn't give a toss if Tony Blair began a light entertainment show on Israeli state TV.

    With regard to Thatcher, this would have been impossible because she was PM during the reign of Pinochet. AS isn't even an elected politician now.

    For what it's worth, anybody who thinks that Russia is the only nasty world superpower might want to reflect on who brought Pinochet to power in Chile. #special relationship

    My dad uses RT for a lot of his news... I had an argument with him a year or so ago as I thought they were obviously going to be very one sided and he was in turn "colouring" his views..... When I watched it to prove him wrong I realised that on one hand they did indeed report with "their slant" (but don't they all?.. As long as you're aware,... the number that watch BBC etc that aren't aware is a worry), on the other hand they also reported stuff that our own media seemed to totally ignore!.

    Would never use them as my sole source of information... But they deserve their place.

    Eye raised a brow.

    I'm just wondering when the faux outrage on the London Evening Standard owner, Alexander Lebedev(former KGB agent) will be getting pelters, the same paper which, George Osborne, Edits.

    Or when the Independent is going to be taken off the shelves as it owned by Lebedev too.

    More power to your elbow Mr Salmondski. I'll only be happy when he gets a slot on Fox, just for balance likes.
    So you think it's a good thing?

    Good or bad, I've no idea, I've not seen it yet, and I'll not be watching it on Thursday.

    For those trying to harness Salmond, they've been a long time trying, and I'm sure he'll make a fist of the show, just like the one he did on the Fringe.

    Whether it continues on RT for the foreseeable, only time will tell. He's certainly got under the skin of some Ultra Unionists.

    I don’t think criticism from an SNP member can actually be recognised. Non-story. Obviously.

    Interesting that the channel has to have 'on behalf of the Russian Government' flagged before any programmes.

    Nothing to see, move on.

    Snow and his little snowflake son certainly wear their colours on their sleeves.

    She makes a fair point - however the converse is that politicians (in particular) famously dont answer questions, and that drives viewers mad.

    Although i would say Salmond is one of the more able and interesting interviewees, and rarely sounded like he was giving a political answer, unlile May who sounds like ahes reading it from an auto-cue.

    Probably quite difficult to get the right balance.

    Dan Snow is Peter Snow's son, not Jon's.
