    Kansas City radio station agrees to broadcast Russian-owned ‘propaganda’ program

    https://www.miamiherald.com/news/nat...239359868.html


    A Kansas City area radio station can broadcast Russian state-owned media programming, the type that U.S. intelligence called a “propaganda machine,” for six hours a day through a lease agreement struck by a local radio operator.

    The lease agreement lets RM Broadcasting air its programming from 6 to 9 a.m. and 6 to 9 p.m. seven days a week. KCXL’s website, which says that it’s the radio station that will “tell you the things that the liberal media wont (sic) tell you,” lists Radio Sputnik in its morning programming.

    A 2017 report by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence that evaluated Russian efforts to influence the 2016 election described Sputnik as “another government-funded outlet producing pro-Kremlin radio and online content in a variety of languages for international audiences.”


    Everyone cool with this? Do you think they're going to be pro-Trump or pro-[eventual nominee]?

    An AM station, in a smaller market, that caters to those 50+ is what has you worked up?

    Are you asking conservatives or liberals? Pro-Russian outlets I've seen like RT push progressive politics more than they do conservative politics. The only area they might align somewhat with alt-conservative views is on foreign policy.

    Is it any worse than the liberal propaganda that we're inundated with on a daily basis?

    If everyone knows what it is then I don't see it having any effect one way or another.

    It's kinda like my cable provider. There is a Chinese news station done in English way up "the dial" that is pretty obviously getting their instructions from Beijing.

    I'm always still in trouble again

    I’m asking why you’re so concerned for the 50 listeners of that station?

    So you can’t explain why we should freak out over the programming of an small market AM station, that almost nobody under 50 is listening to?
