If you thought the U.S. mainstream media weren't telling you the truth, would you turn to Russia Today?

Now hold on, I'm NOT a commie, a com-symp, or a pinko! And today's Russia is NOT synonymous with the former Soviet Union. Communism is finished there -- replaced by a corrupt oligarchy, very much like the U.S. today except less powerful.

In fact, Russia Today, or "RT," has been airing some pretty decent news programs, some of which have involved interviews with highly informed red-blooded Americans like Katrina Vanden Huevel and Mark Crispin Miller, or "MCM," as he signs his emails.

MCM is Professor of Media Ecology at NYU Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development, and on his home page he describes his Research interests as including "modern propaganda, history and tactics of advertising, American film, and media ownership" and mentions that his published books include

Boxed In: The Culture of TV; Seeing Through Movies, ed.; Mad Scientists: The Secret History of Modern Propaganda; Spectacle: Operation Desert Storm and the Triumph of Illusion; and The Bush Dyslexicon. His newest book is Cruel and Unusual: Bush/Cheney's New World Order.

Full disclosure: MCM was also Editor of Loser Take All -- Election Fraud and the Subversion of Democracy, 2000-2008 ...which includes a chapter written by me.

Here below is a MCM's recent interview on RT. Enjoy!
