What they are planing to do is a bit like pissing your pants on a cold winters day.

Well in the wars between jihadists and russians, both Nato and the EU have always sided with the first.

Theyre probably very pleased with the role Turkey played so far there.

Its a press conference by the russian defense forces. Its not a report created by RT

Even less credible

what's a credible source then... BBC, CNN, FOX, Al-Jazeera, Pentagon.. lol give me a break all media and organizations are very biased.

It's likely Turkey acts like they say they do, it's not a tinfoil hat conspiracy theory, similar reports were given by other news media, even Turkish ones.

FoxNews before 7 p.m. is fair and balanced. After that its debate and opinion.

There is a difference between biased and a direct extension of a country's foreign policy. al-Jazeera and Russia Today are government run propaganda mills.

difference yeah but not as big as people tend to think, they often show what other media omit, they are valuable to follow for that reasons alone

Fox News at 3AM is the only truth you will find on television all week long.

Dont you know, any news the shah doesn't like automatically destroys the news sources credibility. I believe the only publication he finds credible is Dabiq.

Oh, boy. ISIS beheading Russians. A lot of people in Raqqa will lose their lives over this.

The point is not what media outlet one should believe (read them all and form the most logical opinion possible) but that Russia in this instance has a considerable conflict of interest. If this were pertinent to anything but the smearing of Turkey's image following what transpired, it would surely have been released before--it wasn't exactly a secret who and where the Russians were bombing so it would have gone a long way to establish why. To now take it at face value ignores a very opportunistic position Russia is in.
