Conservative Talk Radio station broadcasts Russian Government propaganda. https://www.kansascity.com/news/local/a ... 59868.html

You’ve come a long way, comrades.

How would these rebroadcasts of Russian state-owned media differ from Fox News?

The lease agreement lets RM Broadcasting air its programming from 6 to 9 a.m. and 6 to 9 p.m. seven days a week.

Those are prime radio slots when people are driving. Wow. I thought maybe they were allowing late night programming or some time on the weekends maybe.

This is where I feel the station may be vulnerable. Start a boycott of the advertisers sponsoring 6-9am. Drive time is the holiday shopping season of radio, where stations make a lot of their revenue. How many advertisers in Kansas City want to issue a public statement as to why they are supporting Russian Propaganda?

When battling Communism or Fascism, people used to speak of the Fifth Column. Maybe it's time to bring back that expression.

“White Rabbit” used in a commercial to sell cruises.

It doesn't seem as intellectually dishonest as, for example, Nike using the Beatles' Revolution to sell sneakers.

And I'm sure the Stones all need the money ;-)

Now that Russia is an integral part of the Republican party, it makes sense that conservative radio stations would like to broadcasts some of their programs. Station owners would probably get incentivized gifts from the oligarchs and in exchange could help launder some cash.

I'm pretty sure the right wing still thinks they weren't influenced by Russian propaganda, mostly because none of it had a Russian accent.

You’ve come a long way, comrades.

Do you have a reasonable inference, point, or conversation related to the OP?
I mean, is this thread because "you noticed" or was there a compelling reason for the post, other than all-things-Russian-are-the-talking-point-dujour-for-Democrats...

Radio Sputnik, according to a Foreign Registration Act filing, broadcasts in capital cities in China, France, Germany, Egypt and the United Kingdom.

RM Broadcasting buys air time for Radio Sputnik only in Washington D.C. and Kansas City.


do you have some notions for who else buys air time in the US?

I think Outer Darkness purchases all the opinion time on Fox News, if that helps.

Hey, kinda related ... I do remember that one language-challenged Southeastern US participant on this board who - between hair-fire conspiracies regarding kill lists and uranium - always berates the other participants about supposedly not noticing ‘stuff’ because of some supposedly distracting or nonsense rant-tweet from our supposedly stable President Cheeto.

This story looks like it qualifies for ‘stuff’. Maybe that guy will complain again, anyway.

So, no...no point to OP, thanks.
Nice attempt at carrying water, but ye forgot the bucket.

There’s that comprehension problem of yours surfacing again. You seem to labor under the misunderstanding that threads within this forum need to possess a point that you find acceptable or accessible, or are even capable of discerning, when no such requirement exists. You’ll have to deal with your handicap in some other way than demanding that other folks must pander to your inability to function under these constraints.

But, no worries. You’re an enthusiastic member of the political cohort that needs their talking points and cult rally chants dumbed down to three words or less; while progress will be slow, there’s an excellent chance that you’ll be up to double digit word counts in your sentences by the time the 2030s roll around.
