Fox News is the cutting edge of conning the American public. They road test the propaganda at top speed, then get CNN’s Wolf Blitzer and Lara Logan to buy the used sedan.
Propaganda posing as journalism is great for your side, right up until you fall off the cliff in the dark. By creating the Fox News fog machine, the GOP has blinded itself.
“It is, after all, the right-wing radio, TV and internet fever swamps that have gotten them into this mess, that have led to massive misinformation, disinformation and cynicism among Republican voters,” Catherine Rampell wrote. “And draining those fever swamps is the only way to get them out of it.
“For a sense of just how misinformed Republican voters have become, consider a few of the provably wrong things many believe. “Seven in 10 Republicans either doubt or completely disbelieve that President Obama was born in the United States. Six in 10 think he’s a secret Muslim. Half believe global warming is possibly or definitely a myth concocted by scientists.”
