Russian TV chief labels US intelligence report 'a joke'

Earlier this month, a US intelligence report concluded that the Kremlin had set out to influence the outcome of the US election, through cyber attacks, internet trolls and “Russia’s state-run propaganda machine”.

The report highlighted the role of state-funded broadcaster RT.

In an interview with the BBC’s Steve Rosenberg, RT’s Editor-in-Chief Margarita Simonyan told the BBC the report was “a joke”.
