History shows that both Left and Right extremists dislike dissent.
There are examples of "Totalitarianism" on each side.
Noam Chomsky wrote a interesting analysis on media and how it has been devalued.
The facts have been recognised for a long time now.
Chomsky isn't a "Right Wing" thinker.
Political Science 101, 1st test had the question does the far right become the far left. Answer had to be explained in a "blue book" version you wrote. Basically the extremist from the right and the left are at the same place on the 'full circle' thing we grew up hearing. MOST people are moderate and the extremes tug on us. So it is a 'science' this thing called politics. Designed to make you influenced to move left or right. Choices become black and white, yet you move way left or way right from the middle but not in one move. That was an interesting class.
The problem is when you can no longer trust the media who can you trust?

He is stepping up his dictator game I see. Thanks for letting us know.
Trump knows no bounds in the fascism arena. Again, thanks for the alert that he is hitting even harder at the press.

Donald Trump manipulated the media all the way to the White House. Time to reap the whirlwind.
CNN’s Jake Tapper, ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, Wolf Blitzer of CNN, and MSNBC’s Chuck Todd were spotted going into the White House for the lunch, as well as Fox News hosts Bret Baier and Chris Wallace.
On Thursday night, Trump gave a one-hour-and-fifteen-minute speech accepting the Republican nomination. The speech was so overwhelmingly well-received among the crowd that the media did not know what to do to tear it apart. Chyrons appeared on mainstream networks: “Trump Accepts Nomination.” Nothing scandalous.

I'm waiting for "the people" to rise up against these MSM idiots. If it weren't for President Trump inappropriately TWEETING that President Obama "Wiretapped" Trump Tower, the Mainstream Media would have had ZERO to talk about after Comey's testimony today.
