I’d like to first start off by thanking Radley for allowing me to blog here. I’m an avid fan of his work, and a first time blogger, so I couldn’t think of a better place to start.
For those of you who don’t know me, I host a political commentary show 5 days a week at RT (Russia Today) called…..The Alyona Show. If you care to get a taste, you can check it out here. Or follow me on twitter.
There are those in this world who can’t look past the name and funding of where I work and assume that I am a Russian propagandist who gets my scripts straight from the Kremlin, only after I finish our obligatory morning session of worshiping a bare chested picture of Putin. None of which is true. Personally I think Ahmadinejad is way hotter(yes, I am kidding).
In reality, I was born in Moscow, raised in the US since I was 4 and consider myself an American. I dedicate my days to finding the stories I think the mainstream media doesn’t cover, misconstrues, or flat out lies about.
I’ll probably be writing about civil liberties, torture, doing some media commentary and calling for an end to all of our wars that are doing more damage than good. You know, the fun stuff.
Anyway, didn’t mean to make this so serious, just wanted to say hello, I promise.
I look forward to blogging here and to meeting all of you. Hope you enjoy!
