"Not Acceptable" : Nabeel Rajab Slams U.S. Media Head For Listing RT With Terror Groups

Whether you agree with RT or not, it is “not acceptable” to equate the channel with terror groups, prominent Bahraini activist Nabeel Rajab said, referring to a statement by Andrew Lack, who has listed RT as a challenge along with ISIS and Boko Haram.


“I was really shocked to hear that,” Rajab told RT, while speaking about the statement that the newly-appointed chief of US Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG), Andrew Lack, made on Wednesday.


Lack mentioned RT in an interview with The New York Times. “We are facing a number of challenges from entities like Russia Today which is out there pushing a point of view, the Islamic State in the Middle East and groups like Boko Haram,” he said.


“But I firmly believe that this agency has a role to play in facing those challenges.”

Everyone has the right to criticize “but after all we have to respect the people’s right to freedom of expression,” said Rajab. “Russia Today is a respected organization” whether you agree with all RT says or not, he added.

Russia Today was one of the very few TV channels and organizations that had been monitoring all the violations and human rights abuses in this part of the world,” said Rajab referring to the Gulf States and Arab region.


“In our region most of the news channels and agencies belong to the repressive regime or are influenced by a repressive regime,” he said adding that “we have to admit that RT has moved the freedom of expression in the region much ahead.”


“A lot of American TV stations ignored our struggle” and “pled a double standard looking at their interests” said the Bahraini human rights activist criticizing the silence of Western media about the anti-government protests in the Gulf island country.


Rajab said that RT challenged Western media which is “frightened of competition”. Other experts and activists have voiced similar thoughts.




“As a broadcaster, RT does indeed present a challenge to US international broadcasting in terms of competing for viewership,” Director of Advocacy and Communications of the International Press Institute (IPI) Steven M. Ellis told RT.

In tune, editor of politics.co.uk Ian Dunt said that RT is viewed this way “because there’s a terror in London and in Washington of new upstarts, of new information coming out and challenging the narratives that they have owned for the last 50 years or so.”




Ellis also urged Lack to phrase his comments more carefully adding that “RT obviously does not present the type of threat to journalists’ physical security that entities such as the Islamic State group or Boko Haram pose.”

RT is seeking clarification on the comment from BBG itself, the US State Department and the US Embassy in Russia.
