Accuse your opponent of the very thing you are guilty of, I swear that I have read that someplace before.

Good to know

Newspeak is strong in this one.
Sheepleism is accepting whoever says what you agree with.

Do you ever do any introspection?

'Hands up, don't shoot'. Huge fake news that the MSM ran and ran and ran with.

Another highlight this past week was Brian Williams(!) pontificating about fake news.

You can't make this stuff up. Heh.


Thanks from Sabcat

Constantly. The question is do you, I think.

This "fake news" meme is hilarious. Now information is traveling faster than the puppet masters can control it and it frightens them. It is threatening globalism. There is no turning back. Things like brexit and trump are hopefully only the beginning. Look at how the state is trying to get a handle on things like bitcoin where as the whole point of bitcoin is the same, it is the idea. To prove that the people can work w/in the establishment to their own benefit. People like you turn your nose at things like bitcoin and YouTube. That's OK. You are not the target market. The world is moving on. It is natural to clutch to the familiar and fear the unknown.

Oh please.....

The people are too aware, and too smart? Where are these people? I don't see them here on DTT. So where are they?

Here's something afoot: A drive to stir up the "too aware" and "too smart" to reflexively disbelieve ANYTHING the media says, relying on the oracle voice of The Donald. You really don't see this.

In Germany, books were burned. Now, some 80+ years later, newspapers and internet news sources are figuratively - or is it literally? - being burned.

No one is saying InfoWars or Breitbart is being operated by Russia, but here we go again. Somehow the right-wingers KNOW Russia isn't involved in ANY subversive activities. They KNOW this. I'm unsure as to how they know this, but they do, and they'll tell ya about it and ridicule you if you fail to bow down to their more-elite-than-your opinions.

This is really a trip to listen to. This "video" is absolutely guilty of the accusations it's leveling. Back to it.....

Whoa!!!!!!!!!! Being led by the nose..... Now. this dude is claiming that Russian news stories are the truth. Dammit, so many Americans are so easily duped into believing this.

Laws are being ramped up to prevent hate speech unlike anywhere in the world? Did the guy check out the Russian media? I don't think so, or if he did he's being deliberately deceptive. "But we will at least have a more well-rounded view of the world. We should want to hear from all sides, otherwise new will become nothing more than state-run propaganda."

Like Putin's Russia? ROTFLMFAO "One source for all your news. Change the channel, the same thing everywhere you look." Like Putin's Russia? ROTFLMFAO again.

What happened in Russia isn't going to happen here, like gun control. Right-wing paranoia is an easy field to plow. Like in

He points to speech repression in Turkey, China, or North Korea. Didja catch who was left out? I hope so.

There's something going on in the shadows in addition to Western government/corporate "censorship" of the news. The most telling factoid from the video: When discussing repression, Russia was never mentioned. I think this right-wing social justice worker doesn't even realize his omission. The Russkis are very good at what they do.

Now, watch the little excalibur apologist jump in here.

Reputable means high morals as in house of ill repute means the opposite. Respectable could be a better word but they mean the same.

Yep. Here's what is being said without being said.

There are no reputable Western news sources, which is, to any thinking person, preposterous. But this propaganda is being swallowed whole by a new breed of American patriot, a new form of revolutionary.

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.
Thanks from Twisted Sister

I hope you never had and never have the displeasure of serving Jury Duty. It gets ugly in the Jury Room when deliberating. That was where I found out how stupid people are.
