Fairness Doctrine Lost Lies Mainstreamed
Posted on: 2018-02-20 10:13:21   By: Anonymous
 
Reagan killed the fairness doctrine, which required a Tv station to have opposing views on their station.
Fox (news) was born, also hate radio.

What has happened to America since?

The lies and propaganda of the alt reich has divided America with the many lies and sowing of doubt in our justice system, and Constitution.

The main reason now America is divided is laid rightfully so on the BS of the GOP propaganda machine, Fox and hate radio.

What we are watching is not new. All tyrants use the same tools to gain hold power.
They repeat over and over the news is fake, lies.
They support a censored press.
They repeat the justice mechanism is rigged against them.
They sow distrust of the very pillars of society.
They urge the people to rebel against the pillars of society.
They call themselves "populists".

Those who have used this-
Hitler
Stalin
Putin
Duterte
Ergodan
Assad
Trump

We are in a Constitutional crisis , which is caused by the tyrannical hopes of Trump.
He is challenging our Justice dept , and other agencies as Nixon did.
Aided by Fox news , and alt right pundits , the Republican party which appears to prefer Russia over America , it is supporting the attempted destruction of our Constitutional rule of law, and Justice system.

Now is the time for all good people to come to the aid of our Constitution and rule of law before it is damaged beyond repair.

      I don't like all this talk and opinion.
      I need a safe space.

    On your list of tyrants replace Trump with Obama and you will have at least one thing right.
    The remainder is just an Alinskyesque rant with no facts to back it up and hoping to convince someone/anyone.
    My opinion.

      Your opinion is simply that Obama was not good. What a surprise to find here in Calaveras.

      But you just say that about Obama mindlessly because it is not true that Obama ranted about "fake news." I can't recall he ever did that. You haven't made a responsive or credible comment.

      So disappointing for someone who may know who Alinsky is. Or did you just see the name on a right-wing ranting site.

        "You haven't made a responsive or credible comment."

        That was my point to you. Follow the bouncing ball.

        Alinsky- just another left wing radical that libs love to emulate but wish they had written the book instead.

          I was trying to follow the ball but you took it out of the fact-based universe. Obama did not rant about Fake News. Trump does. There is no equivalence or interchangeability between them.

          If you want to be persuasive, then you should make points and arguments based on facts. Otherwise you can only appeal to the low IQ folks who are taken in by Russian bots and Roger Stone.

            Exactly what I originally said to you, poor little snowflake.

    So even George knew democrats were dumb. He knew they were Nitwits, just like sheep, oblivious to everything that goes on around them.

When the Russians and their bots take advantage of our "freedom of speech", the dumb are manipulated and led to slaughter. And the rest of us get a moron like Trump for our president.

Trump uses freedom of speech mostly to lie. For example, he now says Obama did less than Trump did to stop or punish the Russians. Untrue. Obama imposed sanctions, threw a bunch of Russians out of the US and confiscated their posh estates. Trump has done.....NOTHING. Trump won't even acknowledge the Russian activity.

Weakest president EVER. Rated worst president by US political scientists in recent survey.
