    Thanks for the link. I'm already sick of it though -- and that's not based on the content or graphics, but the ANNOYING as hell British guy that's on it. If the purpose of the station is to incite ethnic violence against British people, it's working, b/c after five minutes, I'm ready to go to the UK and slaughter people just for being of the same nationality as that guy.
    Заранее благодарю всех за исправление ошибок в моём русском.

    That's the type of voice all news readers have here. I agree it is annoying, try listening to it every day.
    Please correct any Russian language mistakes I make.

    That's not even a British accent. It's like he is British maybe but has been living in America or Australia for ages. It's not normal, and not what British newsreaders sound like.

    Are we talking about the same guy? This one was named Michael O' SOMTHING I think. Maybe you're right -- maybe the bastardized English is just reeking havoc on our ears. Then there's that promo for the General Snegov documentary. The one guy says something like "...blah...this hero was: General Snegov." And then, like over him another guy goes "General Snegov." It's terrible. LOL. Seriously, the channel kind of gives me the creeps -- it's like an alternate universe where the Soviet Union invaded the US and took it over. It's just so surreal...

    I still haven't figured out the point of this channel yet. Why would people in English-speaking countries give a crap about the Russian perspective on anything, and since they know it's just a propaganda mouthpiece, why would they believe a word that's said on it even if they do watch it?

    Well the one I watched on that link sounded British, now it's a completely different story with a woman news reader...

    About the propaganda. I've read this article on the channel in question, before it was created:

    http://creatiff.ru/read/article/1388

    Having no facts I, trusting to the site authors, assumed their opinion.
