The local news is just a bunch of propaganda.

I don't have time or inclination to watch 20 minutes of commercials with a couple of scripted 30 second sound bytes. I don't think many people actually watch the evening news anymore.

It could be dangerous if they actually had any influence anymore.


It's true that our generation is quickly distancing itselfs away from those kind of news. Most people I know don't watch it at all, or very rarely. Which is awesome.

I don't know if I could say the same thing about older generations though.

you would be wrong. many people, in rural areas, of my parents' generation, use the local news as their primary news source.

this does matter.

We simply elect our representatives by a democratic process to interpret that constitution and govern our nation by the rules set fourth in it.


Which is a type of democracy.

Some people seem to confuse the word democracy with direct democracy. The word democracy includes other types of democracy not just a direct democracy.

The USA is not a direct democracy and no one claims that. It is however a type of democracy.


Definition of democracy plural democracies 1 a : government by the people; especially : rule of the majority b : a government in which the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised by them directly or indirectly through a system of representation usually involving periodically held free elections

The definition includes direct democracy and other types of democracy.

Tax cut debate with Liberal Democrat
.
I disagree with your opinion.Mary Johnson on my rebuttal to Nancy Pelosi's tax cut viewpoint . Did you ever consider Mary countering the content of my posts with facts , logic , or deductive reasoning . It is no surprise to me you counter my debate with an insult to my character and even accusation of being in collusion with Russian . You are unaware Mary Johnson as are many in the Liberal Democratic Support Population of the Democratic Propaganda Arm . One aspect of propaganda is to accuse President Trump and Republicans of being Racist , Greedy , Corporate Hogs , care only for themselves , are dishonest , and the root cause of all the troubles liberal democrats have . Those concepts which are negative propaganda keys , are hammered into the minds of liberal democratic communities via national media and local media feeds . The concept of Racism and Racist concepts must be used a million times a year by Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats . Fake news outlets repeat the propaganda keys because fake news are merely purveyors of propaganda keys . Every day in the past , things have changed since my year long focus on propaganda keys . In the past George Soros would send out the days bullet points to Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer . From there the Propaganda keys , bullet points were distributed through the infrastructure nationally and internationally of the Democratic Party and in George Soros's political organization . Various regional voter blocks also recurve same national and international propaganda media feeds these are then added on to by tailor specific propaganda feeds for local and regional minority voter blocks . .
The reason liberal democrats debate with insults is due to the nature of propaganda creating millions of memories over time .These propaganda key memories also carry the content and structure of the entire mental abuse package of propaganda which is basically plastering the Target Population with insults like charges of Racism .
That is why Mary Johnson you countered my debate with insults such as me being a Russian troll . .
Russians have nothing on the Liberal Democratic Party . The democrats and George Soros have spilled blood and treasure since 1979 costing our nation untold billions amidst human suffering . Worldwide including profits from America the Liberal Democratic Propaganda Arm and George Soros political organizations in 140 nations have robbed the planet of roughly $80 billion dollars which is what I am going to sue George Soros and Nancy Pelosi for . They gave me a headache from all the propaganda keys .
In short Mary propaganda keys have over time rewritten the internal definitions that guide you in life .
You have been imprinted and crippled by the Liberal Democratic Propaganda Arm of George Soros .
Its ok I created a PTSD Repair Kit designed to fix the damage done by Propaganda to this planet .
Good luck clock is ticking
There are TIME CONSTRAINTS ILL DEFINED

Not new for me, there are quite a few compilations on youtube. But this one... really did the job in exposing their falsehoods. Grab some popcorn, this should be interesting.

What a time to be alive.

948,658 views so far and counting.

Used to was the remote could flash between channels and see the synchronicity of tv news outlet propaganda. They all say the same thing, usually at the same time.

This is what I come to ATS for. Thanks for sharing.

Representative republic by democratic means has been reworded, divided into a false state of republicans and democrats.

When people reference the Matrix or Platos Cave as the false construct we all live in, the designed shadow play on the cavewall, the simulated reality of the Matrix, this is what they mean.

I'm surprised that this is new to some here. Conan O'Brien regularly showed this parroting that goes on in a recurring segment called "Newscasters Agree".

Here's several from over the years:

I love when someone puts together these types of videos. It really illustrates the agenda being pushed at any one time. I remember when our UK politicians had the 'sustainable' script. Now the buzz word is 'clearly'. Theresa May is ALWAYS saying this word, and I have noticed others also. It is obvious when a not so long in the tooth MP, who has been told to use it, put is in a context that doesn't require it and it comes over as an after thought that was just pushed in there coz they remembered they had to say it. Makes me laugh and cringe all at the same time.

Sinclair is a corporate giant that owns or operates around 190 local TV news stations across the country, and it’s been quietly forcing its stations to air nationally produced right-wing spin for years. But when it hired Boris Epshteyn, fresh from a stint in the Trump administration, to serve as its “chief political analyst,” it was only a matter of time beforeeveryone was paying attention. Numerous media and business reporters highlighted Sinclair’s twofold plan for growing local right-wing news: using the company’s still-pending acquisition of Tribune Media stations to further expand its reach across the country (with its potentially unethical relationship with the Trump administration and its appointees paving the way), and hiring Epshteyn as a new, Trump-aligned star for “must-run” national segments.

I haven't watched the news for like three years now , because I was sick and tired of all the negativity it displayed.

Never did I see funny stories or beautiful things that had a positive effect.

The Internet is where I read the news and I can choose what I want to learn or know about positive or negative at any time and if it's fake well I can be the judge of that myself.
