The coverage of the stories directly related to the COVID-19 pandemic was largely in line with factual information from other US and European broadcasters. One of the central topics of RT's coverage of the COVID 19 pandemic is how big business and the federal government have profited from it. Analysis of the op-ed section demonstrates that it was incredibly welcoming for all sorts of COVID-dissidents, anti-vaxxers and government-critical extreme libertarians. RT's op-ed contributor Helen Buyinski described the New World Order-like plans of the World Economic Forum to introduce human screening and mandatory vaccinations as a form of control in the post-pandemic world. In order to visualise this global elite plot for the post-pandemic world, RT produced a striking three-minute video to illustrate how every aspect of human relations would be under the control of the financial and corporate elite. The Democratic Party is portrayed as being corrupt and dangerous.
