A rumor is circulating on Twitter that Russia Today recently went off the air in the Washington DC area.
Due to all of the news today in regard to actions against Russia for alleged hacking, I would be inclined to believe this is accurate and that it has something to do with the day's events.
The actions coming out of the White House are more than unusual even when considering past actions by previous presidents. Maybe the rumors are true after all and that Obama is indeed the last president of the United States.
But i would imagine it is more than likely that this has something to do with fiber optic cables being cut strategically around the nation today. Which seems to be affecting a few websites too, sites like Matt Drudge's Drudge Report.
