  •  Couldn't you have found a better source? (0+ / 0-)

    A number of media outlets are covering it in some depth.
    Here's one:
    http://www.cnn.com/...

    The problem with the source that is reporting (besides them being problematic in general) is that the blatant mis-information presented calls into question all the other information presented.  First, sergeant and officer are not synonyms. (This person is actually a sergeant).  And sergeant's don't have responsibility for 800 soldiers. The prostitution ring is questionable, at least so far as the current state of investigation and information. Allegations are that at least one person was pressed into a prostitution. That's some distance from a "prostitution ring"

    •  USA today is their source (0+ / 0-)

      I assumed that source would be acceptable.

      When you start complaining about CNN in the same manner I might take your concern more seriously. But it ooks more like xenophobia when you call out RT.

      And yes I know it is TASS.

        My probelm with RT is is it is a consistent source of speculation, misinformation, CT and woo.  I'm not ready to give CNN an Edward R. Murrow award, but they can pretty much be counted on to get it more right on a bad day than RT does on its best day.
