They celebrate the facts that people watch their content 3 times more often than that of CNN or Euronews, 2.5 times more oftne than Al Jazeera, they enjoy 2,5 million subscribers.
And this is definitely a great success, especialy taking into account that they hit 1 billion views benchmark last year. The RT team has well deserved congratulations, but this is not that I'd like to draw your attention to.
In my opinion, this is a clear sign that the world's audience is sick and tired of the heavily biased TV flood from the 1st world big guys like CNN, BBC, Euronews, etc. People worldwide are just fed up with unilateral propaganda from those who consider the world monopolar (or for some reasons act as if it is). They want to know other points of view. They want to think different.
I am not a child. I know that RT is state funded company, and it surely has a certain level of pro-Russian propaganda. Yet in the world overfilled with russophobia, I don't think it's that bad.
That's just nice that millions people around the globe spend their precious time (and we all know time is money) to discover other existing opinions and viewpoints. Thus, their own, personal opinions become more weighted and well-grounded.
And the level of misunderstanding in the world decreases.
