An intro to an episode of a talk show on RT says this:

Both the television station you are watching now [i.e. RT] and the Russian news agency Sputnik may find themselves in legal jeopardy in the United States. The drive to designate both as foreign agents under the “Foreign Agents Registration Act” is unnerving and dangerous. It would seem that it is those in power who grant freedom of speech.

Unnerving and dangerous? Really?! That coming from a country where being financed from abroad while being engaged in politics is grounds enough to be labelled a foreign agent?
