Högsta chefen – Andrew Lack – på ”US Broadcasting Board of Governors” anser att RT.com är samma utmaning som IS och Boko Haram för USA. Uttalandet når allmänheten via en intervju av New York Times.
“We are facing a number of challenges from entities like Russia Today which is out there pushing a point of view, the Islamic State in the Middle East and groups like Boko Haram, ” he said.
“But I firmly believe that this agency has a role to play in facing those challenges.”
