Via Politico's Dylan Byers:
Larry King, the veteran television host, has joined RT, the Russian-based 24-hour cable news network.
The new show, called "Politics with Larry King" will debut in June. RT will also host "Larry King Now," the show King launched on Hulu in July 2012. The programs will be recorded in Los Angeles and Washington.
"I would rather ask questions to people in positions of power, instead of speaking on their behalf. That's why you can find my show, 'Larry King Now,' right here on RT," King says in a new ad.
Russia Today is a network funded by the the Federal Agency on Press and Mass Communications of the Russian Federation. Many have criticized the Kremlin-sponsored network's coverage as "anti-American" and labeled it as a propaganda arm of the Russian government. Despite its questionable reporting, RT has been honored with awards, most recently having been nominated for an International Emmy Award for its coverage of Occupy Wall Street.
