His new TV show was announced this week on Russia's state-run English-language TV news channel "RT."

RT does not air on regular Russian TV. It is aimed at international audiences and can be seen on some cable systems here in the US.

But RT is also known for consistently taking an anti-American stance.

Anchor Lisa Mullins talks to Ann Cooper, professor at Columbia School of Journalism and veteran reporter on Russian affairs, to get more details.
