OfcoN threatens RT for its one lone pro Russian version of Ukraine facts in our forest of single view MSM comics - hypocrisy personified!

Hi folks, just browsing RT for some information on Ukraine and I came across this:

“ The UK’s media watchdog has issued a response to calls to review RT’s broadcasting license in the country amid a growing backlash in the West to Moscow’s decision to recognize the two breakaway Donbass republics.

Replying to a request from Culture Secretary Nadine Dorries on Wednesday, Ofcom set out its stance on whether the network should be allowed to stream over the airways in the nation as tensions flare between Ukraine and Russia.

“Recognizing the serious nature of the crisis in Ukraine, we have been keeping the situation under close review and have already stepped up our oversight of coverage of these events by broadcasters in the UK,” the statement read.

According to the agency, “We are expediting complaints in this area as a matter of urgency and we will not hesitate to take swift action where necessary.”

“I am confident that we have the full range of enforcement tools at our disposal and our track record shows that when we find a breach of our rules, we can and do take action,” Ofcom’s Chief Executive, Dame Melanie Dawes, wrote, adding that the regulator would be “fully transparent” about any investigations it opens and their outcomes.

*“It is acceptable for broadcasters to present issues from a particular perspective provided that alternative views and opinions are also represented,”*the notice read. It would not be acceptable for any of our licensees to broadcast one-sided propaganda.”
and this:

Where has OfCON been over the last 2 years!
