    “Trolling is a key part of the conservative-entertainment/media business model,” she said. “These guys say stuff all the time that they do not intend to be persuasive. They’re not trying to explain something, or bring people along to their way of thinking, they’re just doing something to attract attention, and hopefully condemnation and outrage from the mainstream, and particularly from liberals. They want to offend you. They seek to offend you. That is the point.”

    Maddow said that “trolling” was a “tried and true schtick” for conservatives. Not just for media figures, but for politicians as well. She described Rep. Steve King (R-IA) as a “permanent troll.”


    The video is in the link, and well worth the watch :clap2: :up:

    .

    I've been saying it all along: The division pimps are out for themselves, success for them is presenting a biased point of view on every topic designed specifically to keep their side angry at the other. Keeping the sides divided means their ratings and relevance remain high. That's their schtick, a political version of professional wrestling, including the fans who (somehow) don't see what's actually going on.

    By the way - The division pimps exist on BOTH ends of the spectrum.

    I am not certain the anger doesn't stem from the clash of values opposed to an influence of a talking head.

    There is it and right on cue - one of the worst trolls here.

    But, not picking on willow because this entire board is made for trolling. That's a shame because it makes any degree of conversation or debate impossible.

    Good link Black Label. Thanks.
