RT channel on leased 103 compltely discontinued

Here is another biased action made by Comcast. So no more RT channel on your leased channel 103? Personally, it was a great opportunity to compare our news with Russian version in English.

Leased means RT was PAYING Comcast to carry the channel. Most likely, they decided to stop paying.

Once again, remember Al Jazeera was discontinued. Now RT falls by the wayside. We now have fewer choices when it comes to news. Will we start sounding like the Russians during the bad old days? When they would lament and tell us that there is no "Truth" in Pravda (Pravda in Russian translates into truth) and no "News" in Izvestia (Izvestia in Russian translates into news). 

 

As a service to a democracy Comcast if falling short of the mark. The more sources of news and information we have (even it we do not agree with them) the better one is able to make rational decisions about the society around them. We new more and not fewer news sources.

I fully agree. As the immigrant from the former Soviet Union (45 years ago) and like nobody else who never lived there, I do know the socialistic system. However, there is no Soviet Union anymore and we are dealing with absolutely different country. Yes, Russia still has some limitation on the freedom of speech and their position on politics might be biased but it would be very much interesting to compare their point of view with our one. Sometime it would make some sense. Don't we have the right to listen and to view anything from any sources based on our first amendment of our constitution?

Very sad to lose this news channel, which provides an alternative view of the world. I stopped watching CNN, ABC, Fox News a year ago. They have become an arena of tabloid announcements, flat political witch hunt... Don Lemon and company chasing Donald Trump. I consider switching back to Dish Network.
