RT Finds Avid Audience in House of Lords

RT - Sputnik International
British peers have been revealed to regularly watch RT along with other TV Channels like BBC and CNN in their dining room.

It turned out that members of the upper house of the UK Parliament regularly watch the news during their meals.

"All the Lords want is for news to be on 24/7. Sometimes it's switched to the BBC, at other times Sky News and occasionally Russia Today, just anything apart from daytime telly," a man operating the googlebox in the peers' canteen told express.co.uk.
