Removal of the RT videos would markedly improve Google News.  The Russia Today videos tend to be paranoid fantasies devoid of any real content, weight or significance.  Several reputable news outlets offer far superior linkable video news content.  I cherish the Google News site for being the premiere news portal on the internet.  Please consider my suggestion an act of reciprocity; as your wonderful site impresses upon my life for the better, I hope my advice does likewise for your site.

I agree completely: remove the RT videos. Recently there was an RT video about how wonderful life was in Libya during the reign of Gaddafi; today features an RT video with the headline: "US Empire starts to fold". This isn't news, it is propaganda.

I have to agree -- the "Spotlight Video" feature often includes content from sources I'd consider state propaganda outlets rather than news providers.  I also assume the "Spotlight" content slots are paid for by the providers, so there's probably little we can do to convince Google to remove them (even though their inclusion seems to be contrary to a lot of the "don't be evil" philosophy that Sergei Brin and Google generally expouse!)

I agree, please remove RT. It's garbage. Or at least give the option to customize

I agree with all these folks, Google should give us the ability to remove the spotlight videos. It is Pradva all over again.

As we speak my entire spotlight videos feed is RT, which has prompted another fruitless journey into the google help forums.  Very irritated.

Another annoyance is that for 2-3 days straight spotlight videos will carry the same espn.com game highlights clip which won't play for me because I am currently located outside the US.  This function is completely useless.

I'm in complete agreement.  Pretty amazing the Google is allowing it's site to be exploited this way.

I actually like the RT spotlight videos. What I hate is the stupid sports videos. Is there a way we can control what videos we see? And also right now there seems to be something wrong with Spotlight Videos. Mine are all in Spanish right now.
