    I did, and I am saying, what you are getting at IS wrong. One thing does not necessarily equate to the other.

    The only incentive for hyping propaganda is not just ratings. That is your logical error. I am sorry if you do not get that fault in your thinking. This is not my problem and it is the reason you are deluded. Go back to basics dear friend.

    The Soviet Union and Nazi Germany used propaganda all the damn time, and it had absolutely nothing to do with the profit motive. We are so beyond the profit motive here. We are talking about things that are much more serious.

    Your video clip proves nothing.

    "Obama and Hillary were war criminals." Scant BS.

    W and Dick Cheney need rope.

    Why don't we just tear up the whole constitution, declare martial law and make Trump president for life.

    Perhaps you were just a young child when this time of history happened.

    Hillary and the CFR orchestrated that policy for oil, and brainwashed you to accept it. It was blood for oil, their blood, our oil. And the alliance cut short a plane for an pan-African Union to make a new currency that would have been a threat to the global world order and the private banking cartel. They ARE war criminals. International law - Wikipedia




    But I was following the indy media closely and English speaking twitter users in Libya. We were all being lied to at the time.

    The intel agencies were feeding false propaganda into the corporate media. When there were protests on the streets in the American MSM in Libya? What you were actually seeing were rallies in support of Gaddafi, but the corporate news were taking those clips of masses of gatherings, and reporting them as protests against him. . .

    They were lying to you.

    I agree with you, W and Dick do need ropes, but so do Obama and Hillary. They all need ropes for using YOUR tax money for killing innocent people w/o a declaration of war and telling the American people what these nations did, or how they were a threat to the American people.

    Don't you know? They are all members silly. :71:

    “Should we shut down left-wing media?”

    Most conservatives would of course support doing so.

    I've only ever heard establishment left wing politicians support this notion.

    NPR isn’t ‘left wing.’

    In fact, ‘the media’ in general aren’t ‘left wing.’

    Indeed, that news entities report facts and the truth that conflict with rightwing dogma, exposing the lies and dishonesty of the right, doesn’t make them ‘left wing.’

    They have a 1st Amendment right to make fools out of themselves and sooner or later they will shut down due to lack of interest. CNN is down to about half a million primetime viewers.

    No they don't give anything closely resembling even handed.
    The only reason you believe that is because they are in the pockets of the democrat party.
    here's something to think about when one side of the political spectrum says the media is partisan and all they report is what you agree with is the time you should question what they are reporting.
