All those leaders in those countries are lawyers. They makes so many laws over there like in the U.S. You can't wake up in the morning with out breaking at least three laws by mid day. Then the write all the loop holes to give descreasionary power to the judges and law enforcement people. Its like once you know how to play the game lets change the rules

Russia Today = propaganda

When the South Ossetia / Georgia conflict erupted, they soon had "GENOCIDE" plastered at the bottom of the screen while they provided copious stories of killed and injured Ossetians, while ignoring the Georgian side. After the dust has settled, it doesn't appear to be genocide at all. Yet again, Russia is trying to use the media to influence people's opinions.

Always seek diverse sources for your understanding of the world.

Not at all! To date I've seen no evidence to change my opinion, but I remain open-minded. I currently think that it was a series of militant attacks, perhaps stoked by Russia, and that Russia's response was intentionally excessive (in part, because I've spoken to former Soviet military men and heard those individuals' mentality). Russians even shot a Georgian journalist, now on YouTube for all to see.

I'll appreciate any reliable information that may change my current opinion.

I disagree. It's good for YouTube to show RT, because I believe that freethinking viewers can sense its bias and better understand state-influenced media in this way. That said, many people will simply believe whatever they want, regardless, and will seek out media that supports their existing views.

However, despite the tangible bias, I still find RT informative and a useful way to get to know Russian culture. They've shown some excellent material, such as a great show on Chernobyl.

I'm quite used to all these stations, and sensitive to bias in any media. RT sets off my alarm more frequently, but I sometimes do sense bias in other channels, as well.

Note, for example, that the word GENOCIDE was not posted in huge letters on CNN & the BBC before the charges could be verified. To me, this strongly suggested sensationalistic and inflammatory reporting from a channel which happens to be state-sponsored (RIA Novosti).

I strongly AGREE that we should be careful of ALL media.
