The brains behind RT are smart enough to know that total and complete bullshit won't work over here. So they hide the propaganda in just enough real content to make it believable.

Huffpo does very little reporting also considering all the money they make from ads. NPR barely mentioned Standing Rock also in their news reports at the time. Perhaps because they're National Petroleum Radio today because of all the petro foundation money they're taking.

Once more, RTA isn't wrong all or even most of the time. It would be a terrible propaganda arm of the Kremlin if it were.

However it's a part of RT. It is an arm of the Kremlin propaganda machine. It was designed to lure and attract good people just like you. It works.
Thanks from Clara007

The reader is supposed to 'buy in' to the premise that Obama was an unpopular president, even though he left the Oval office with an approval rating of 60% and we are to believe that it was the failed Obama presidency that led the voters to Trump??
AND how about the fact that Clinton won the popular vote? Or the fact that millions of voters chose to stay home or select a write-in or third-party candidates. This was an incredibly emotional election. Very few voters actually believed that Trump was qualified for the job. So the election became a poli-sci experiment. What would happen if we actually elected a business man? What would happen if we elected someone with absolutely no qualifications? What if we switched gears entirely and voted for a morally bankrupt individual who acts like a five year old? So the voters held their nose and checked the Trump box.
As for the Democrats? I'll admit we've got some work to do--some soul searching--but historically presidential elections are circuitous. In the last two decades we've gone from a Dem president to a GOP president to a Dem president and now back to a GOP president---although we know Trump is NOT a conservative. IN fact, most of us have no idea WHAT he is. A fluke??
So here's what's going to happen and it's pretty predictable to anyone except Mike Whitney. Trump will serve ONE term. While he is serving the Democratic Party, LED BY BARACK Obama, will dig deep. They will pull together their senior statesmen and begin the come back. It is time to find the next president. AND we will be back. As Mark Twain said in 1915: “The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated.” AND so it is with the Democratic Party.
I don't consider the Democratic Party dead, just sterile. The Progressive socialist segment of the Democratic Party has been seen for what it is and has been thoroughly put down. Todays Democratic Party is not that of the 50's when it was known for representing middle America. Their incremental move toward socialism was for power's sake alone. Trump represents a move back to the original concept of the Constitution were it belongs. I hope he stays on message.

Trump represents a wrinkle in time. He certainly wasn't elected because Americans pondered the Constitution and he certainly wasn't elected for his knowledge of or propensity to uphold the Constitution. The man is a halfwit.

I don't carry implicit trust of any media, and my basic rule of thumb is Follow The Money! Most journalism grads know they can make the most money spouting bullshit for MSM, and some who I formerly considered reliable (Rachel Maddow) revealed themselves to be shallow high paid propagandists who just take the money and say whatever shit that is approved by their employers!
