With his disastrous debate performance, Donald Trump becomes the latest Republican to fall into the Fox News Hive Mind Trap.
As in the last election, Fox News has accidentally pushed the propaganda too far. Then, they told their ignoramus audience that Romney was going to win, not of course to provide the public with accurate information — something they only do by accident — but in order to manipulate them with lies. The election was Toto pulling back the curtain on the Great and Powerful Ailes.
Propaganda posing as journalism is great for your side, right up until you fall off the cliff in the dark. Fox News finally believes its own lies.
