It's a fact, sorry that it runs counter to your narrative. RT is funded wholley by the Russian Government. NYT may have corporate interests (and thus one should keep that in mind when reading it) but RT is literally a mouthpiece of the Russian Government."Reporting news accurately is not their primary goal" is a childish, reductive way to evaluate a news source. NYT has corporate interests and is subject to biases just like the RT is.
How you can conflate the two boggles the mind.
The creation of RT was a part of a larger public relations effort by the Russian Government in 2005 that was intended to improve the image of Russia abroad. RT was conceived by former media minister Mikhail Lesin, and Russian president Vladimir Putin's press spokesperson Aleksei Gromov. At the time of RT's founding, RIA Novosti director Svetlana Mironyuk stated: "Unfortunately, at the level of mass consciousness in the West, Russia is associated with three words: communism, snow and poverty," and added "we would like to present a more complete picture of life in our country." It is registered as an autonomous nonprofit organization funded by the federal budget of Russia through the Federal Agency on Press and Mass Communications of the Russian Federation.
