And now people are wondering really what Russia has up its sleeve. On Thursday afternoon, American Rep Maxine Waters was on the House floor in Washington reading a bill about the Accountability Act (related to stocks and what not). Just moments into her reading, a C-Span broadcast carrying the reading reportedly was interrupted by none other than RT News a Russian owned and Kremlin backed news agency.
In the interruption, news of a reported terrorist attack among other things was briefly showcased on national television. How it happened? Officials aren’t quite sure yet. C-Span released a statement confirming that they’re investigating.
Meanwhile, others have expressed concern on social media that Russia may have the ability to infiltrate television networks.
