If you haven’t stayed up until the early hours of the morning reading with your eyes itching and burning with tiredness and your vision blurred as you fight to stay awake to finish the book, you haven’t lived at all

Anonymous said: I like to think RT news is a good source considering they show important things that places like CNN or FOX would never show. But at the same time, isn't it a Russian owned station? Is there bias? Is it completely reliable? I know its more reliable than the other stations I mentioned but I'm not sure on how much I should rely on/support RT.


Depends on the issue really. I wouldn’t expect a critical view of Putin from RT but at the same time it’s more reliable in some area of airing America’s dirty laundry than most US organizations. That said, with almost all major media outlets it helps to find corroborating stories. I think Democracy Now, KBOO Radio, The Real News Network, Jacobin Mag, Common Dreams, etc., are great sources. Even better sources, the people on the ground in the movements.


Five Latin American countries withdraw envoys from IsraelAugust 1, 2014
The decision of the Latin American countries to recall their ambassadors in Tel Aviv is a “deep disappointment”, says Israel.
El Salvador on Wednesday became the fifth Latin American country to withdraw its ambassador from Israel in protest at Israel’s military offensive in Gaza.
Brazil, Chile, Ecuador and Peru have already recalled their ambassadors.
Israeli Foreign Ministry Spokesman Yigal Palmor said that the move encourages Hamas; “this decision encourages Hamas which has been recognized as a terrorist organization by several countries. The countries standing against terror must act responsibly and should not reward them. While Hamas has been responsible for hindering a ceasfire, El Salvador, Peru and Chile were expected to support international attitude for peace and demilitarization of Gaza”, the statement said.
Earlier Israel criticized Brazil over its decision to recall its ambassador in protest at Israel’s military offensive in Gaza.
Brazil was one of 29 countries in the UN Human Rights Council that voted last Wednesday to investigate Israel over its military offensive in Gaza.
During a state visit by Chinese President Xi Jinping on July 17, Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff said her country was “profoundly concerned by the dramatic events” in Gaza.
The Palestinian death toll from a devastating Israeli onslaught on the Gaza Strip rose to 1283, according to a Gaza Health Ministry spokesman.
According to the spokesman, at least 7170 Palestinians have also been injured in the ongoing Israeli attacks since July 7.
