#NewsIsNotTerror Lionel to Andrew Lack and BBG: RT Doesn't Push the ISIS "Point of View"

RT | Jan 24, 2015

In fact, if you want to see who supports ISIS look no further than our good friends Saudi Arabia, whose late king our government's sickeningly failing over. "Clearly, the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria also known as ISIS or ISIL, are the benefactors of vast state-sponsorship and yet the West has not identified nor condemned these sponsors, let alone move toward leveling sanctions similar to what it is seeking to impose upon Moscow."

Stop the presses! Newly-appointed US Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG) honcho Andy Lack mentioned RT specifically in an interview with The New York Times on Friday. Try to make sense out of this seeming incoherence.

“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.”

What the hell does that even mean? Even State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki doesn't agree with Lack.

“Would the US government put those three in the same category? No, we wouldn’t,” Psaki said at a briefing on Friday answering a questing posed by RT’s Gayane Chichakyan, related to the comments made by BBG head Andrew Lack.
