Former RT anchor: Russian media altering narrative on jet downing
Former Russia Today America anchor Liz Wahl said the West has to re-evaluate its cooperation with Russia in its fight against ISIS
Former Russia Today America anchor Liz Wahl said the West has to re-evaluate its cooperation with Russia in its fight against ISIS especially after Moscow has “hidden its true agenda” and warned against Russian propaganda that is in overdrive, according to a recent report on CNN Arabic.
Wahl, who famously quit her job on RT America in March last year, said during an interview on CNN: “I think there is a trust problem between the United States, France and Russia in working together as one alliance against ISIS especially if they can’t trust to depend on Russia as a solid ally.”
“We have to remember that Russia begun building its military capabilities in Syria during September 2014 and has tried to convince others that it is fighting ISIS, when in fact it has really been targeting the Free Syrian Army and other moderate rebel groups,” Wahl told CNN.
Wahl also took the chance to warn against Russian media: “We have to monitor Russian media to investigate how Moscow is altering the narrative after it said that the Russian jet was shot down by a missile from the ground while Turkey has confirmed its show the plane from a fighter jet.”
Wahl famously made headlines last year after quitting live from her anchor chair at RT America. She closed a show talking about the "ethical and moral challenges."
