  • 2. Mr. Bad  |  December 19th, 2011 at 9:54 am

    Who is this guy? No Hawaiian shirt, beer can hat or looney tunes persona? More of this more serious, sober Ames sans bad jokes and hammy strutting please.

  • 3. Duarte Guerreiro  |  December 19th, 2011 at 11:02 am

    No Hawaiian shirt? Betrayal!

  • 4. Paul Morel  |  December 19th, 2011 at 12:25 pm

    Very sharp. Good job keeping the blood flowing to your brain, Ames.

  • 5. DeeboCools  |  December 19th, 2011 at 1:27 pm

    Damn Ames, you look about 9 feet tall next to that tiny woman.

  • 6. gink  |  December 19th, 2011 at 1:32 pm

    Hmmmmm “shaved” , “no Hawaiian shirt”….is this an example of auto-troll software and if so will it comment next that Ames has taken and arrow to the knee?

  • 7. HamsterFist  |  December 19th, 2011 at 1:40 pm

    I’m shocked Mark seemed to still have ‘faith’ this will get turned around…..

  • 8. Tyler  |  December 19th, 2011 at 2:21 pm

    Mark Ames and United Russia for president – November 2012!

  • 9. boson  |  December 19th, 2011 at 2:37 pm

    my god she’s hot

  • 10. amadeo  |  December 19th, 2011 at 4:31 pm

    Yo Mark, how about an expose on this oligarch asshole:–88MILLION.html

    bet he only did honest things to amass 9.5 BILLION.

  • 11. Нестор Махно  |  December 19th, 2011 at 4:35 pm

    Alyona is glowing. Preggers?

  • 12. OccupyD.C.  |  December 20th, 2011 at 12:19 am

    The only reason Obama isn’t an Uncle Tom is because he’s betraying all Americans and not just the black ones.

    Seriously, what the fuck did we vote for? He rode in on a wave of hope and has left a wave of shit behind him.

    Does he wonder why he got drilled in 08?

    Is he really as incompetent/cowardly as he acts? Or is it just an act?

  • 13. DisExiled  |  December 20th, 2011 at 12:46 am

    “Alyona is glowing. Preggers?”

    Mr. Ames showed her his ‘stimulus package’.

  • 14. Gatorade  |  December 20th, 2011 at 1:54 am

    @12 Remember how his administration was staffed with goldmans people, how gave trillions to banks, and then some guy came out with a book and went on the talk circuit to tell everyone how poor obama was tricked by mean bankers and he totally wasn’t always their boy forever

    @Mr. Bad: Middle age inevitably changes a man, whether he wants it to do so or not. :-)

    The whole place reeks of Putin.

    you can have my comment when you pry it from my thin, anaemic fingers

    (attempts to climb inside an art noveau print)

    And if this doesn’t make sense to you, then bubba, you don’t understand shee-yit

  • 18. Blurtman  |  December 20th, 2011 at 7:08 pm

    You do realize that she is reading a teleprompter. You’ve got to hand it to RT. They out fox Fox by having more attractive babes deliver the news. Fox’s babes are a bit weary and worn out looking. Like Katie Couric, it is a chore for some of them to cross those fat hams they call legs. Fatal flaw for visual media.

    At 4:05: It’s not like we live in… um… (He’s almost about to blurt …in Putin’s Russia…)

    Glad to see the spawn of former munchkins are doing well in the entertainment industry. How tall is that girl? 3″1′??? She’s so cute, I just want to put her in my pocket next to my bic pen!

    Abraham Lincoln used a teleprompter.

    God bless you, Mark, your writing is better than your TV persona, and your TV persona still makes a hell of a lot more sense than damn near everyone on there

  • 24. Heike  |  December 23rd, 2011 at 10:34 pm

    RT Cheerfully discloses 323 friends

  • 25. Marc  |  December 25th, 2011 at 10:37 am

    Ames on Russian “Fox News.” The problem isn’t that he’s right, or wrong, it’s that I’m jealous

  • 26. Koch hag  |  December 28th, 2011 at 10:59 am

    Why does sucking Koch make me such a jealous and bitter troll?

  • 27. funny  |  December 28th, 2011 at 11:01 am

    Why does Alyonka refer to US government as “our” government? Is she deluded? Does she even know where she works?

  • 28. Bummer  |  December 28th, 2011 at 11:06 am

    Is it Russia Today or US Today? On this program I’d like to see how millions of ordinary rooskies aren protesting against Putin. Where is the unbiased and fair coverage?

  • 29. Nolan  |  January 6th, 2012 at 2:17 pm

    RT being a vehicle for Putin propaganda doesn’t change the fact that when it comes to stories not about Russia, it offers a voice to alternative voices that no other major network except occasionally Al-Jazeera (Or Telesur for Spanish speakers) will air.

    If anything it’s in Russia’s interests to give a more open look at other stories to give them legitimacy.

    Also, Alyona is hot.
