RT used to be one of my stations to visit on the daily round, but like an overdose of Kryptonite, the political slant grew so strong that I stopped watching. I wanted genuine news from and about Russia and the world, but got constant snide not-so-subtle West-bashing instead. It's a pity, because Al Jazeera was pulled and that effectively removed two regular news sources from my TV.
Of the two, I would say that the English-language section of al-Jazeera makes a much more serious effort to be impartial, even as it shows things from another viewpoint. I still visit al-Jazeera and al-Arabiya on the net to get my balance. But not RT any more. RT is for sado-masochists.
