Russian propaganda TV channel No1 to be checked by Ofcom
Russian propagandist international TV channel launched an inaccurate attack on a fracking company
Russia Today, the Kremlin’s English-language TV channel, is under the investigation by Ofcom – British media-regulator. The investigation was caused by RT’s bias after it launched an inaccurate attack on fracking company Cuadrilla.
Ofcom has found 15 breaches of broadcasting rules against the station, reports The Times.
The report showed Cuadrilla not in the best light. It was noted, that the company was allegedly dumping toxic waste near the African coast. Thus, daily British newspaper The Times denied the information, adding that Russian TV intentionally published the report, fearing that other countries do not want to buy Russian gas.
Ofcom has previously carried out inspections of Russia Today due to broadcasting code of the UK. However, previous inspections concerned the reports about Ukraine.
