WASHINGTON, June 6, 2011 – Accuracy in Media’s Cliff Kincaid challenged Russia Today personality, Adam Kokesh, to explain his true intentions in recent protests at the Jefferson Memorial.
“American media consumers need to understand that there is more to this than unorthodox PR stunts,” Director of the Center for Investigative Journalism Cliff Kincaid said. “Since Russia Today has declared that an ‘Information War’ has begun, we must pay closer attention to those outlets seeking greater carriage in America – and why. What we saw at the Jefferson Memorial is just an example of how low RT will go for attention. It’s simply tragic to witness a disgruntled Marine veteran being used to advance Russia Today’s agenda.”
