Americans should “carefully weigh” the information of the Russian TV channel RT. This was stated by U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in an interview with WIBC Indianapolis, which was published by the State Department press service.
The head of the Foreign Ministry urged citizens to take the information from mass media critically. According to Pompeo, both the authorities and citizens should distinguish “misinformation”.
He noted that “when someone from the Confucius Institute speaks about the advantages and grandeur of the Communist Party of China, one must understand where it comes from.
“When you see a story on RT, you need to remind yourself that this is the channel behind which Russia stands. Maybe it (plot – Ed.) is still true. Maybe the information is true, but you have to weigh everything very carefully,” RT quotes him as saying.
RT editor-in-chief Margarita Simonyan commented on his statement in her Telegram channel.
“You just keep watching, Mr. Secretary of State. Do not get distracted,” she wrote.
