    It's unclear what you're asking and why. Why wouldn't a Trump supporter be for freedom of speech? It's the left that's against free speech and hung up on the proliferation of Russian propaganda.

    Brave enough to silence those you disagree with? I’ll pass. Freedom of speech means freedom to say things that are unpopular too.

    The difference between this and Voice of America is that VOA is broadcast by the US into other areas. You typically don't have Russian broadcasters broadcasting VOA for us. This would be the equivalent of a Russian broadcaster buying VOA content and broadcasting it in say Kazan.
    What makes you think he is buying it? They are probably paying him to broadcast it.

    That is a possible alternative. Worse, but possible

    I'm not familiar with Sputnik.

    I sometimes read RT (Russia Today) though. It's too anti-American for a steady diet, but it is a good source for information that the western MSM avoids. Like the Tommy Robinson affair (full coverage even when blacked out on the BBC), or the Julian Assange saga.

    As far as being broadcast within the US, I have no problem with it - on the condition that it be made clear that it is sponsored by a foreign state. Like every 5 minutes or so: "This program is sponsored by the Russian government." Something like that.

    That isn't hard to tell though. Typically when you come across a network pushing progressive politics, but has a pro-Russian bent especially on foreign policy, chances are good that it's a Russian sponsored network.

    Another likely indicator is disproportionate focus on Tulsi Gabbard. (This focus has been used against her by other Democrats, but it's hardly to her detriment that another country happens to like her dovishness.)

    Also, listen for coded messages to Trump. That's a dead giveaway.

    As a subscriber to RT's main channel (I unsubbed from RT America for its liberal views), I haven't noticed this at all. In fact, I don't even recall them reporting on it when she was in the news from the Hillary accusation. I'm sure they reported on it but they didn't do it excessively. Maybe they covered it more so on their RT America channel. The liberal media accuses her of it because of her stance on Syria and her anti-interventionist views. For some reason that makes you a Russian asset in the eyes of the left now (though I think that part of it from the media is influenced more by intelligence to silence you about the subject).

    Progressive politics? Not RT. Maybe Sputnik.
