Payments to guests and alleged Kremlin influence on @RTUKnews in #bbcdp debate with @afshinrattansi @Andrew_Adonis https://t.co/xlVAD2fCyx— Daily&SundayPolitics (@daily_politics) October 19, 2017
Afshin Rattansi was invited to defend “Putin’s mouthpiece” (RT) on Daily Politics with Jo Coburn and Andrew Adonis. Should politicians be allowed to appear on RT? Should they be paid for doing so?
There used to be a playground saying: “It takes one to know one”.
It was quite funny listening Jo Coburn complaining of RT’s bias, “ a propaganda arm of Putin’s government”, and the oleaginous Afshin Rattansi firing back a few lethal barbs at the Beeb during his “whataboutery” defence.
“Just as people are sent to jail if they don’t pay Jo Coburn’s salary”
