Let's face it, most people had never even heard of Russian television's RT America until one of their Anchors quit of air saying that the network was nothing more than a mouthpiece for President Putin.
Now, as there is a bit more focus on the network, more things are starting to come out.
The Washington Free Beacon repots that the president and owner of RTTV America is facing up to three years in prison for federal tax fraud after he admitted to cooking the books for the Washington-based Russian news channel by filing over $1 million in phony corporate tax deductions.
RTTV America president Alexei Iazlovsky pleaded guilty to submitting false tax returns, a felony, last July. However, his role at the Russian news outlet has not been reported until now.
Sources tell FTVLive that although it hasn't been reported, another correspondent quit the network.
Sources also say that 2 people working on a new show said they didn't want their faces on it. And a producer walked away because she couldn't deal with the drama.
Sounds like a great place to work. NOT!
