KGB TV to Air Show Hosted by Anti-war Marine Vet

Russia Today, an English-language channel provided in the U.S. and other Western countries, is funded by the Moscow regime of Vladimir Putin, a former KGB officer, and recently hired an alleged Russian spy who is in the process of being deported from Britain.
The international Moscow-funded propaganda network known as Russia Today (RT) is set to air a program hosted by a U.S. Marine Veteran opposed to the U.S. wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The vet’s press agent, Nena Bartlett, is a former assistant campaign manager for Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) known as the “bikini calendar girl” for having appeared in a “Ladies of Liberty” calendar.
The show, “Adam vs The Man,” starts on April 11 and features Adam Kokesh, a self-described opponent of American “fascism” who wanted to impeach President Bush.
Russia Today, an English-language channel provided in the U.S. and other Western countries, is funded by the Moscow regime of Vladimir Putin, a former KGB officer, and recently hired an alleged Russian spy who is in the process of being deported from Britain.
Her first “story” for RT was to complain that Western governments have a “habit of lashing out at other countries for not listening to their people, while blithely ignoring public opinion on their own doorsteps.”
Russia Today has been described by Konstantin Preobrazhensky, himself a former Soviet KGB officer who defected to the West, as “a part of the Russian industry of misinformation and manipulation” designed to mislead foreign audiences about Russian intentions. He says Russia Today television utilizes methods of propaganda that are managed by Directorate “A” of the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service. He explains, “The specialty of Directorate ‘A’ is deceiving world public opinion and manipulating it. It has got a lot of experience over decades of the Cold War.”
In trying to attract and confuse an American audience, RT regularly features Marxist and radical commentators in the U.S. such as Noam Chomsky, Gloria La Riva of the Party for Socialism and Liberation, Carl Dix of the Revolutionary Communist Party, and 9/11 “inside job” advocate and radio host Alex Jones.
Jones, who describes himself as “a loyal American who loves my country,” has appeared regularly on RT

to denounce U.S. foreign policy and even to defend Russia’s invasion of Georgia.
All of this plays into Moscow’s hands. In a column entitled, “Russian TV Sounds Like Soviet TV,” we noted that “It is preferable, for Russian propaganda purposes, to use foreigners, especially Americans, to make your propaganda points.”
The American Marine Veteran, Adam Kokesh, seems to fit the bill, having emerged as an anti-war activist who ran as a Republican for Congress and supported Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) for president. He has described himself

  as part of the “G.I. Resistance movement” and opposes paying federal income taxes for “unconstitutional government.” He is also part of a movement known as “slave uprising” that works to “fight fascism” in the U.S.
