Video: Reporter cut off on Russian state TV: ‘Gay people will not be silent in the face of repression’

A US reporter invited onto Russian state-funded TV to talk about Bradley Manning who used his time to speak out against the repression of LGBT people in the country was cut off by the host, but not before saying “we’re not going to be silent of horrific repression”.

Describing the RT channel (formerly Russia Today), as the “Kremlin funded propaganda network”, James Kirchick pulls up rainbow braces and refuses to speak about Bradley Manning, instead speaking out against anti-gay laws passed in June by the Russian State Duma.
