Editorial Independence

Just because I work here, for RT, doesn't mean I don't have editorial independence and I can't stress enough how strongly I am against any military intervention in sovereign nations' affairs. ...  What Russia did is wrong. ...  I will not sit here and apologise for or defend military action.

-- Russia Today TV Host Abby Martin, 4 March 2014

Contrary to the popular opinion, RT doesn't beat its journalists into submission, and they are free to express their own opinions, not just in private but on the air.

We respect her views, and the views of all our journalists, presenters and program hosts, and there will be absolutely no reprimands made against Ms. Martin.

-- Statement by Russia Today, in response to the above, 6 March 2014
