Why is this not treated as a scandal?

The British Health Secretary, Jeremy Hunt, ordered the Chief Medical Officer for England to conduct a study into the medical effectiveness of two homeopathic products.

Hunt has a record of pro-quackery, which, in a rational word, would lead to not just appointment as Health Secretary being questioned, but any senior role in government.

Russia Today is a garbage TV station

Buzzfeed is probably not the first place you would go to in search for news but you would still trust it more than  the Kremlin’s garbage RT television station.

RT advertised itself in Britain with a deliberate appeal to anti-science conspiracists. Support for the lunacies of the “9/11 Truther” variety are only the most prominent.

Other idiocies included reporting that the Russian military intercepted the 2013 Urals meteorite.

It’s garbage and why it is still being broadcast on  British terrestrial television is beyond any explanation except that the Kremlin’s dirty money talks.
