Government Executive: Head of American Overseas Media Picked a Fight With Russian State TV

Repeating previous BBG Watch Commentary:

U.S. Broadcasting Board of Governors new director Andy Lack did not compare RT with terrorist organizations. He listed RT and the others as representing a challenge for U.S. international media outreach. RT is a challenge because it engages in blatant propaganda and disinformation in support of President Putin’s policies, including his military aggression against Ukranie.

Read it carefully:

“although the Department of State DOES, share the same concerns as what Lack implied, DOS wouldn’t state it in those terms.”

Which means that they agree but that Lack doesn’t talk in DOS-ese language.
