Margarita Simonyan and the “Black Towers of Kremlin”

Something is going on with the RT editorial team lately. They all, all of them, lost their ability to distinguish colors. The inability to distinguish certain shades of color is called Color Vision Deficiency. The term “color blindness” is also used to describe this visual condition, but very few people are completely color blind.

The RT editorial team color blindness is selective and such reminds us of a known psychiatric illness linked to Bipolar Manic-Depression and Schizophrenia. Nonconscious and Conscious Color Priming is rooted in Schizophrenia. Latest scientific research results suggest that the well-documented visual processing deficits in this illness likely occur at later, percept-dependent stages of processing.

Color blindness, (also known as Dyschromatopsia) or color vision deficiency, in humans is the inability to perceive differences between some or all colors that other people can distinguish. It is most often of genetic nature, but may also occur because of eye, nerve, or brain damage, or due to exposure to certain chemicals.

Color blindness is usually classed as disability.

The selective color-blindness of the RT editorial team is triggered by the images of the Kremlin, and Russian churches, especially St. Basil’s cathedral and Christ the Savior cathedral.

Especially severe cases of color blindness and image distortion, the RT editorial team demonstrates while handling images of the Russian president.

Examples are aplenty.

Posted on March 29, 2019 RT translated article from Polish newspaper. Respect for Putin and interest to culture: Krytyka Polityczna on a new attitude of Germans, Poles and Ukrainians to Russia

Seems like some positives news from Poland, for a change. Why would the RT editorial team pick this image for illustration?

MOSCOW MAOYR LUZHKOV'S SUPPORTERS GATHER FOR RALLY.

The “dark” Kremlin.

A meta-description of the photo which was taken about 20 years ago.

A general view of a rally in support of Moscow Mayor Yuri Luzhkov held by the walls of the Kremlin in Moscow December 14. Luzhkov’s centre left Fatherland-All Russia movement, which he leads with former prime minister Yevgeny Primakov, has been pushed into third place in most opinion polls ahead of Sundays parliamentary elections, behind the Communist Party and the pro-Kremlin Yedinstvo (Unity) party.

Jak Ukraińcy, Polacy i Niemcy patrzą dziś na Rosję?

The Polish newspaper editorial team’s illustration? The article about a growing interest to Russian culture among Polish youth is illustrated with a photo of a somewhat rundown monument to Polar Bear.Why would this article translated by the Russia Today into Russia language be illustrated by a photo of the ‘dark” Kremlin taken by the the Reuters? 

Take another article with good news on the growing Russia-US trade. It was last edited on 27 Mar, 2019?

Russia-US trade turnover hit $25 billion & rising despite sanctions – Lavrov

The RT editorial team again uses the “dark” image of the Kremlin taken by Christian Hartmann for the Reuters.

Scary, isn’t it?

sample image 2

It’s not just the Moscow Kremlin that the Russia Today sees as “dark.” The RT editorial team see all in red and black when they look at Russian churches.

An image of “dark” St Basil’s Cathedral used to illustrate an article on an inauguration of president Putin originally published by the Independent, as Vladimir Putin was sworn in for a fourth term as president of Russia in one of the Kremlin’s many ornate halls. The Independent’s article is appropriately illustrated by this image taken during the ceremony by AFP/Getty.

Russia Today translation of this article is illustrated with a doctored image of darkened St. Basil’s Cathedral a black male silhouette, and a black Lenin’s tomb

 Another Reuters image of the Kremlin at night the RT uses for its translation of the L’Express article

People celebrate ahead of New Year's Day in Red Square in Moscow

Presidential election in Russia – battle for young people

L’Express source article uses an image of young people – volunteers for Putin’s campaign.

The RT uses an image with following meta-description:

What does a 2010 New Year celebration has to do with 2018 presidential election?

How would you illustrate great news that Russia’s economy started growing after two year slump?

The RT uses a dark image of building in the Moscow financial center. It’s as if for the RT any good news about Russia has to be illustrated in black, bleak and dark colors.

Judge for yourself.

The RT translation of Le Fugaro article: After 2 years in slump Russian economy is growing

Why? Maybe that’s how Le Figaro illustrated it?

Actually, Le Figaro used an image of president Putin.

Russian President Putin attends a meeting of the State Council in Moscow

Is not that the RT never uses images of President Putin….

It’s that the RT uses scary, dark and distorted images of Russian president.

For example, the image they used to illustrate the British media article 

Vladimir Putin secures landslide election victory . . . thanks to Britain 

And this is image that the RT uses for its translation.

A man holds a placard depicting Russian President and Presidential candidate Putin during a rally and concert marking the fourth anniversary of Russia's annexation of the Crimea region, at Manezhnaya Square in central Moscow

 A meta-description of this image says:

“A man holds a placard depicting Russian President and Presidential candidate Vladimir Putin during a rally and concert marking the fourth anniversary of Russia’s annexation of the Crimea region, at Manezhnaya Square in central Moscow, Russia March 18, 2018. REUTERS/Maxim Shemetov NO RESALES. NO ARCHIVE. – RC1E3D241020″

This image of people celebrating a re-unification of Crimea, which the RT calls “annexation” in direct violation of the federal law.

After seeing all those images, you will start believing the fake news spread by Das Erste.

Their “facts” were disproved on the basis of their very small Survey Sample Sizes and huge margin of error, but the fake news is still up on the RT, illustrated by the image of, what else but the black Kremlin.

Das Erste tells a tale of million of Russians who want to move to Europe from the “Kremlin dungeons”

sample 9

“Moscow more and more looks like a European capital, but only externally” cries out the Frankfurter Allgemeine

And RT has a proof: it’s always night in Moscow, unlike some other European capitals that see daylight occasionally.

sample 10a

The Germans fully agree with the Russian government funded and Soros run RT,sun never shines in Moscow.

Wie Moskau zu Putins glänzendem Showroom wird

The RT sees as “black” not just St Basil’s Cathedral. Christ the Savior Cathedral is also depicted as “black” and sinister by them.

sample 11

In reality, outside of the Matrix, the Cathedral is snow-white with golden domes.

But, this is the way the RT sees it, they are artists – not journalists!  If a priest condemns mutilation of reproductive organs and castration of mentally ill people, the whole church is tuning “black.” Russian Orthodox priest calls sex affirmation surgery a crime

But, I must add that the RT editorial team sees not only just Orthodox churches in Russia in black, but everywhere else.

Just look at the image of the The Kiev Pechersk Lavra © Reuters / Valentyn Ogirenko

sample 12

Notice a very peculiar angle of the image that make the orthodox Christian crosses, facing the East, to look like spears, from the side. And again, the image made to make snow-white churches with golden domes appear “dark.”

Why would the RT editorial team see as “black” the porcelain white Lavra’s churches belonging to the canonical Orthodox Church? Why would they use as an illustration the canonical church image for this article: ‘Perverting history’: Bulgarian priest condemns Constantinople for splitting Orthodox Church

P.S. Sometime during the past presidential elections Margarita Simonyan went to the Dark Side is she ain’t coming back. Will she take the RT with her down this Abyss?
