Gay journalist James Kirchik appeared today on RT in a segment on the Bradley Manning verdict and decided to take his two minutes and rip Russia's anti-gay laws and blast the network and its reporters for shilling propaganda to the public and refusing to denounce oppression against LGBT people.
Said Kirchik: "I’m not really interested in talking about Bradley Manning. I’m interested in talking about the horrific environment of homophobia in Russia right now."
