Fun times in KC.

“ Sputnik now broadcasts in 90 cities worldwide, she said, dismissing as “absurd” the idea that listeners are the target of Russian election meddling.

Working through the news headlines on recent Sputnik broadcasts, the hosts found much to fault.

The impeachment of Mr. Trump is bad.

“The entire impeachment is a lie,” said Lee Stranahan, a former Breitbart reporter and the right-wing co-host of Sputnik’s morning show.

The American political system is bad.”

>>>

Of course, it does seem to fit right in with the other KC stations.

“Sputnik shares its Kansas City stations with a cast of far-right conspiracy theorists, evangelical pastors and anti-Semites. The host of one program, TruNews, recently described the impeachment of Mr. Trump as a “Jew coup.”

“He calls things the way that he sees them,” Mr. Schartel said of Rick Wiles, who made the remark. “I feel that he has got a right to say what he is saying.”



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

Is Nixon applauding or turning in his grave?

I guess the good folks of KC got the Trump memo, “you can always trust the Russians. I know I did!” And so far, he has been proven correct.

Up is down. Down is up.

Repubs sidle up to Russians.

Dems are accused of being too cozy with Wall Street.

Yet, Republicans explode the national debt

And factory workers believe a lying real estate hustler has their best interests at heart.

Up is down. Down is up.

I really am worried about what my daughters will face.

Wow, that is disturbing. Especially when you consider this:

American intelligence agencies have concluded that Sputnik; its television sibling, RT; and other Russian-controlled media outlets were part of the Kremlin’s efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election in the United States, and could star in a repeat performance this year.

In Russia, the government controls the main television stations and an ever-growing list of news agencies.



The transformation of American conservatives into pro-Russians is one of the truly bizarre political stories of our time...remember when it was "leftists" who were supposedly "red?"

As a KC resident, this is good to know, komrade!

/sarcasm

Owner sounds like a crackpot. Station sounds like it doesn't have much bandwidth, as a local I hadn't even heard of it 'til I saw this post. Still, gotta give Putin credit once again. The guy keeps beating us at our own game. And yeah - today's Rs are in bed with Putin on various levels. That is a most bizarro, unexpected and ironic turn of events imo.

A lot of low band AM stations around the country will sell you time that you can then promote as station programing. For the most part they are no different than TV infomercials.

I’d really love to see some MRF conservatives to chime in about this. Are they seeing this in the same way?
