Argos TV: The World according to Russia Today
The channel Russia Today was launched in 2005 under the name Russia Today to bring the Russian perspective on world events to a global audience. To counter channels like BBC World, CNN and Al-Jazeera. Almost ten years later it’s the biggest news organisation on YouTube with its 2 billion views, more than CNN and BBC together. Where its critics call it a bullhorn for Russian propaganda, RT presents itself as an alternative to mainstream media.
