Middle East Online, 16 Nov 2012, Anna Malpas: "Russia's state English language channel Russia Today (RT) scored one of its biggest scoops by interviewing Syrian President Bashar al-Assad but its coverage of the crisis has come under increasing scrutiny over alleged pro-regime bias. Assad dramatically used the exclusive interview with the Kremlin-funded channel to pledge 'to live and die' in Syria, days after RT was criticised by British television watchdog Ofcom for lack of balance in one of its news broadcasts on Syria. But RT -- which has the slogan 'Question more' and was launched in 2005 in a bid to promote Russia's viewpoint globally -- accuses Western media of a bias towards the rebels. 'We definitely see a lot of bias in the mainstream media coverage of events in Syria,' the channel's editor-in-chief Margarita Simonyan said by email in answer to written questions."
