    Not saying much considering the they have at least 10 youtube channels.
    BBC has one channel with 3.9 billion views.
    CNN has one channel with 1.88 billion views.

    Mainstream news, like BBC and CNN, also have millions of viewers of their TV Channels, and 'views' obviously doesn't amount to individuals. You can watch a video 1000000 times on Youtube but that doesn't mean its had 100000 viewers.

    A shaft measuring contest between news outlets, based upon YouTube views? Based upon that PewDiePie is the king of media.

    The different channels are aimed at different countries (languages)....English, Arabic etc.

    BBC has the same thing.

    Hmmm...Let's see
    BBC
    BBC YouTube channel statistics - StatSheep
    3.9 billion views

    BBCWorldwide
    BBCWorldwide YouTube channel statistics - StatSheep
    1.1 billion views

    BBC Earth
    bbcearth YouTube channel statistics - StatSheep
    .45 billion views

    That's just three of the channels...With 5.5 billion views.



    Now tell me how 4 billion is a larger number than 5.5 billion?


    BBC FOR THE WIN!

    No, no, no, my friend. That is what RT wants you to believe, and you fell for it hook, line, and sinker.

    Regretfully, for RT, the 3.9 billion is just for the BBC channel, and not the other BBC channels.

    Now, for the sake of argument, let's compare BBC to RussiaToday.
    BBC compared to Russiatoday Youtube Channels - StatSheep

    Hmmm...3.9 billion for the BBC, and a measly 2.0 billion for RussiaToday.
    So much for Russian propaganda.
    Please RT...If you are going to lie about video views...Make it a lie that is harder to debunk

    Good way to keep track of the number listening to enemy propaganda. Like the rebel flag helps you to locate the yahoos when you go to a concert or NASCAR race.

    This is silly to even debate.... BBC total YouTube views for the entire BBC network (all channels combined) is 3.9 billion. There is nothing more to say. All BBC channels fall under the BBC umbrella....

    If you add up all all of BBCs channel viewership individually you will notice that they add up to 3.9 billion ;)

    There is no Russian prapoganda or conspiracy here :D

    If RT was nothing more than Russian Prapoganda, than the following would have not occurred...

    "The RT network was nominated in 18 categories of the prestigious international television and film competition, and received awards in half of them – two gold, four silver and three bronze."

    RT wins 9 awards, incl 2 golds, at prestigious New York Festivals

    Cheers.

    Ps

    Every country's media has some sort of prapoganda... Example: US media coverage on the White Helmets as a heroic and selfless medic group. In reality far from it. Once exposed for what it truly was, all coverage of this group ceased almost over night.

    Yes, yes, my friend...And all the RT Channels fall under RussiaToday.
    RT
    Which still only gets them 2,009,240,762 views.

    So where are the other 2 million views?

    Answer...RT takes all of their combined views, and then, adds the individual channel views. Thus 2 billion views(total) + 2 billion views(um of parts) = 4 billion.
