WASHINGTON, April 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- RT America, is set to launch a new program, "Adam vs The Man," April 11 at 7PM EDT. The next generation political program will be hosted by activist, former Republican congressional candidate, and United States Marine veteran Adam Kokesh.
International Emmy-nominated news channel, RT America is an English-language news channel based in Moscow and Washington, DC. With bold, original programming, RT is making inroads into what used to be mainstream media-dominated television markets. Said Margarita Simonyan, RT editor-in-chief, "As an alternative media source often interacting with independent journalists and controversial opinion makers, RT has become a major player in the battle for information in recent years."
"Adam Kokesh brings such a diverse background to any issue," said former campaign manager, Tina Richards. She continued, "When I want to hear political talking points I can turn to the mainstream networks, but when I want to hear what is really happening and what the younger people of America are thinking, I'll be watching 'Adam vs The Man.'"
"Adam vs The Man" will air daily at 7PM EDT starting April 11 on Russia Today.
ADAM KOKESH: Adam is a former United States Marine who became a leader in the American anti-war movement and a congressional candidate who captured the voice of the youth and liberty movements across America. Most recently, Adam brought thought-provoking programming to radio as the host of his own local show. In 2008, the United States presidential elections showed a voter turnout of youth (ages 18-29) that rose to 51 percent. As the 2012 election nears, Adam Kokesh will provide a perspective that potential youth voters will appreciate. As Adam often says, "It's okay if you don't do politics, politics will keep doing you."
