RT’S 2014 “SECOND OPINION” AD CAMPAIGN KICKS OFF IN NEW YORK

MOSCOW, AUGUST 18, 2014 – RT unveils its international advertising campaign: “RT. For the Second Opinion.”, which brings attention to the importance of having a plurality of voices in the news media. The campaign debuted in New York in mid-August of 2014 and will roll out in Washington, DC, and London by the end of the month.

“It is very important to alert the international public to how important it is to have diverse voices and alternative viewpoints,” says Margarita Simonyan, RT’s Editor-in-Chief. “Too many times throughout history harmful policies were carried out exactly because there was no voice of dissent to question the mainstream narrative and the establishment consensus. One of the most striking examples is the Iraq War.”


The campaign is comprised of a series of posters, varying between different markets in the US and the UK. It is carried out in part via the “wild posting” outdoor advertising format.
