VIDEO: AIM Makes an Ad for Russia Today

Relatively fresh in the fight for carriage in American cable markets, Russia Today stumbled into the ring with all the grace of a drunken Moscow ballerina. Not only does RT lack the lavish funding of its competitors (think Al-Jazeera English), but journalistic integrity as well. In its place you’ll see angry anchors and the same depth of investigative reporting found in the school paper.

Maybe Russia Today needs a little PR help. In a fit of Western charity, Accuracy in Media has developed a promotional video that highlights the little network’s core strengths — while tipping its hat to the decadent, capitalist audience. Enjoy!
