Not sure that I accept anything from Russia Today as valid without additional corroboration right now. I'm inclined to file them away with Fox News or Quebecor/Sun Media to name two examples. There's a similar mindset at work at the leadership in all three organizations. Once Putin's out of office, I hope to revisit that question.

Remember Syria and the sarin gas attack?

I'm pretty sure RT called the sarin story right, while the "legitimate" western press mostly didn't, at least not until other factors (temporarily) called off the dogs of war on Syria.

Point being, I think a better comparison for RT would be CNN and the New York Times, even the CBC whenever the first reports of attrocities from the latest Pentagon target start coming out to justify the bombing campaign under consideration.
