"Disinformation is real. Disinformation is necessary."
 
Yes indeedy...ever since some voted for a fascist dictator who attacked anyone who criticized him by asserting "fake news" and "alternative facts".  Just look at the extremist "news" sources sited here daily..think there are similar extremist progressive sites?  If so, which ones?  How did Americans become so gullible?  Watching too many episodes of "X Files"?

That is what I constantly wonder about:   "How Did Americans Become So Gullible"? 

 

This question would be a wonderful topic within itself. I, for one, believe is started with Rupert Murdoch creating FOX. He created "FOX News" to push the far right ultra-conservative agenda (Fascism) through a fake news show consisting of opinion panels spouting lies, disinformation and pure propaganda. Maddox hired Roger Ailes to design the set for the show instructing him to "make it look like a News Network Show". 

 

I posted a topic about this a long time ago here in this forum full of facts and links to support them, only to have those already brainwashed by FOX to scoff at all of the facts about how and why it was created. 

 

It is beyond erie how the tactics of today's ultra conservatives parallel what Goebbels did to get Hitler elected. tRump tapped into the fear and hatred that FOX and several other far right groups have promoted.

 

The conspiracy theories thrive. FOX was successful, they have "Made America Gullible Again".
