The Greek lettering on a bank gave away a Fox News attempt to mislead viewers.

A recent report by Russia Today details attempts by Fox News to mislead viewers as they report on recent protests in Russia while rolling footage of civil unrest in Greece.

As Fox anchors discussed the violence that is beginning to take hold in Russia, footage rolled of protesters hurling objects and clashing with police in front of a building; the only problem was that on the building was Greek lettering that said Greek National Bank.

The state-run Russian media outlet concluded that use of the violent Greek footage was an attempt by American media, working in lock-step with the Federal government, to mislead U.S. citizens into believing there may be a need to intervene in Russian domestic affairs.

Eva Golinger, a journalist and author interviewed by Russia Today said: “It’s not surprising whatsoever that at the moment that there would be any kind of protest, no matter how small it be, in Russia against the Russian government that it would be greatly exaggerated in media, and used by the U.S. government as well, as a way to try to somehow push for change in Russia that would be more favorable to U.S. interest.”
