Editors Note: This is interesting when you consider the fact that “news” outlets such as CNN seemingly do work for the globalist establishment which has no allegiance to any one country but absolutely does lobby against the betterment of various countries across the world.. Designating them as foreign agents would not be devoid of truth.

Russia is considering designating CNN, Voice of America and Radio Liberty as foreign agents, now that the U.S. has forced state-run RT to register as a foreign agent.

Russian officials said Friday that they’re thinking of making private and government-run American media entities register as foreign agents, which is exactly what Russia warned it would do if American authorities moved to censure RT, The New York Times reports. Such a move could prevent CNN and other U.S. state-owned media entities from operating or distributing content in certain areas.

RT editor-in-chief Margarita Simonyan signaled her intent to comply Thursday, saying that the state-run company would for now give in to U.S. demands to avoid bank account freezes and disclosures of personal employee information. Simonyan believes the application of the Foreign Agents Registration Act to RT America is discriminatory. The deadline to register is Monday.

“We believe that the demand does not only go against the law, and we will prove it in court – the demand is discriminative, it contradicts both the democracy and freedom of speech principles,” Simonyan said. “It deprives us of fair competition with other international channels, which are not registered as foreign agents.”

Simonyan said that while 400 entities are registered under FARA, not a single one of those entities is a media outlet.

The crackdown on RT has come in response to continued investigations into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. The U.S. intelligence community believes RT, formerly known as Russia Today, to be little more than a propaganda outlet. A January report from the Director of National Intelligence stated that RT “contributed to the influence campaign by serving as a platform for Kremlin messaging to Russian and international audiences.”

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova pledged Thursday that Russia will hit back against any actions designed to attack RT.

“If someone starts to fight dirty, perverting the law by using it as a tool to eradicate the TV station, every move aimed against the Russian media outlet would be repaid in kind,” Zakharova said.

It’s unclear whether Russia will follow through on its threat or not.

    Russia should classify our MSM and it’s many offshoots as enemies of the state. As should all citizens of the US.

    Yeah, but what government do they work for? Maybe to the Soros global regime? Not the US government–they’re traitors to the US.

    How can our “leaders” say with a straight face that Russia interfered with our election? LOL! Mental illness runs rampant among the disgusting elected officials! But they DO know better!
    They just think that it’s more expedient to their progressive/communist causes to spew nonsensical bullshit!
