Russia Today​ ​Forced to Register ​a​s a Foreign Agent Under Threat of Seizure

The Trump White House has ordered Russia Today (RT), a Kremlin-directed cable media outlet in the US, to register as a foreign agent under threat of seizing its assets and arresting its news director.  Journalist, Max Blumenthal, is a frequent guest on RT and says there is a double standard being applied: the Israel lobby, and organizations like AIPAC (American Israeli Public Affairs Committee), promote war in Gaza, war in Lebanon and war in Iran, but are not required to register as a foreign agent.  He says that the reason RT is being targeted is that it delivers news and views that are contrary to the versions authorized by the Pentagon and blocked by mainstream media. -GEG
