The media in the USA is the most dishonest I've seen. Their entire goal is to generate misinfotainment that is interesting enough to generate more ad revenue.
I went to rt.com to get the other side, and it's really about the same as the CNN one.
They also have some enlightening articles right on their front page:
"Internet troll convictions on the rise (VIDEO)"
"Counter attack: MP asks law enforcers to protect Russians from Google page counts"
"Putin signs bill on ‘undesirable foreign groups’ into law"
"Defense Ministry to improve conscripts’ preparedness through military lessons in schools"
"Snowden leaks aided terrorists, damaged spy agencies – neocon think-tank"
Oh, and they have hardly any ads on their site and no subscription plan, so I guess their funded some other way... neat!
