Zakharova Demands U.S. Media Should Apologize for Lies about Russia
March 27, 2019 (EIRNS)—In statements to Rossiya-1 TV broadcast “60 Minutes,” Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova called out the U.S. media for the constant barrage of lies they had directed against Russia over the past two years, regarding the 2016 elections.
As reported by TASS, Zakharova said,
“We are now referring to a team of propagandists ... who style themselves as journalists—now they need to make their apologies. I’m not speaking about their feelings toward Donald Trump—the decision on whether they should apologize to him is their domestic matter. However, all this media ragtag, which has been at the forefront of anti-Russian news reporting in the United States, will need to apologize to the U.S. audience and, naturally, to the Russian [audience], to the whole country.”
Zakharova announced that Moscow will be carefully analyzing anti-Russian propaganda reports and footage from U.S. TV shows, in which the media tried mightily to persuade the U.S. audience of Trump’s ties with Russia. These, she said, will be forwarded to international organizations such as the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), for further analysis.
“Everything will be duly compiled and sent wherever needed ... and will be made public for the general audience. I think the world should know its heroes.”
