I get the argument that Western media outlets are biased towards Western interests, but he’s kidding himself if he thinks that RT isn’t biased towards Russian interests. I personally have no problem with that and I watch RT quite a bit because it provides a different perspective on events to say, BBC or CNN newscasts, but I don’t kid myself into thinking its more (or less) objective than them. Not that I’m saying Assange does think that of course. I just think that if you are the guy behind WikiLeaks, having a TV show on Putin’s pet network seems a bit wrong.
