By the skillful and sustained use of propaganda, one can make a people see even heaven as hell or an extremely wretched life as paradise. ~Adolf Hitler
If anyone who reads this doesn’t vow to never watch the Fake Noise Propaganda Machine ever again…you’re simply not living in the real world.
The result of this concerted campaign of disinformation is a viewership that knows almost nothing about what’s going on in the world. According to recent polls, Fox News viewers are the most misinformed of all news consumers. They are 12 percentage points more likely to believe the stimulus package caused job losses, 17 points more likely to believe Muslims want to establish Shariah law in America, 30 points more likely to say that scientists dispute global warming, and 31 points more likely to doubt President Obama’s citizenship. In fact, a study by the University of Maryland reveals, ignorance of Fox viewers actually increases the longer they watch the network. That’s because Ailes isn’t interested in providing people with information, or even a balanced range of perspectives. Like his political mentor, Richard Nixon, Ailes traffics in the emotions of victimization.
Fox News is false, people. Inside and out. They are unfair and unbalanced, their “facts” are not facts, and the entire operation consists of nothing more than Republican shills…run by a paranoid Nixonian twerp.
Like I’ve said before, the greatest thing George Soros (or Bill Gates, or any other patriotic billionaire) could do for this country is buy this sucker–and shut it down.
As they say…read the whole thing.
