* PropagandaMachine: Another criticism of RT. It often gets a lot of flak for being a mouthpiece of the Russian government, blatantly advocating "useful idiots" aka {{Conspiracy Theorist}}s on its network by promoting a brand of virulent anti-Western criticism and EU/US/NATO-bashing, while praising the Russian government and countries aligned with Russia, such as Venezuela and Syria. This is just one part of a widespread "active measures" aka subversive campaign by the Russian government to sow discord among the US and its allies, alongside cyber-attacks, political warfare, intimidation, espionage, funneling money to front organizations, and disinformation techniques similar to the ones used by the Soviets during the Cold War. It's gotten so bad to the point that it and [[https://sputniknews.com/ Sputnik, another Russian propaganda bullhorn]], were [[http://thehill.com/business-a-lobbying/business-a-lobbying/350226-russian-network-rt-must-register-as-foreign-agent-in forced by the USDOJ to register as foreign lobbying tools in 2017]]. The registration would require RT to face intense scrutiny by the DOJ as a registered lobbyist. And it was done partly in response to the Russians' attempt to influence the 2016 US presidential elections, and because Putin signed a similar law in 2012 that required NGOs to register as foreign agents if they received outside funding.

* ConspiracyTheorist: Perhaps the most common criticism. RT devotes lots of coverage to conspiracy theories, giving airtime to truthers, birthers, and cranks warning of {{False Flag Operation}}s.
