After some recent discussion about the effectiveness of Faux News turning otherwise normal people into stumbling zombies unable to think their way out of a paper bag, it got me to wondering. So I just did a search on ” has anyone investigated Fox News for using mind control techniques?” I found this, which I thought very interesting. It is from back in 2016, but still quite revelant.
My question now is, “why is this allowed to continue?” Just because they do weather and sports, does not mean they are doing news. They have been the hand of the far right propaganda campaign for years now, most of us know that. There needs to be established some sort of baseline of fact that is an acceptable format for reporting the news. Those unable to meet the standard get denied their opportunity to do news. What they are doing isn’t just wrong, IMO it is criminal.
Free speech is one thing, using speech in the deviously deceptive, and extraordinarily effective manner the Fox News propaganda machine does it, again, IMO is criminal.
…and I don’t mind taking the heat for the free speech thing. At some point free speech crosses a line. Fox News crossed the damn line.
EDIT: Oh! Here is another one, quite similar:
