James Nixey, head of the Russia and Eurasia Program at Chatham House in London, said news reports by RT and Sputnik could only have influence at the margins of the U.K. referendum campaign because they lack the authority of traditional news outlets. But he said their messages resonate with an audience that feels skeptical of the establishment and mainstream media.
“If you are unhappy with your lot in life…If you’re anti-American, if you’re on a low wage or what the English call lower class, if you have a chip on your shoulder, the messages put across very slickly by Russia Today are very appealing,” he said.
So what influenced the British to vote for Brexit? Are many British people lower class or anti-American then? So if no, what is the mainstream trend for Brexit?
