RT posts, mocks questions from BuzzFeed reporter


RT Editor-in-Chief Margarita Simonyan posted a list of questions from BuzzFeed reporter Rosie Gray with...less than sincere answers. A sample:

BuzzFeed: Why is your office apparently located on a different floor than the newsroom, as one employee told me?

I do not actually know on which floor my RT office is, and its location is inconsequential regardless, as I work straight out of my Kremlin digs (see Q1). I’ve heard it is a very nice office though.

Reached by email, Gray said she emailed Simonyan the questions Tuesday. "They have not sent me real answers," she writes. Gray plans to file a piece on RT today.
