A) you don’t know me.. and I don’t mean that in the smart @$$ way..
I was born and raised in MS with my favorite half of my family being crazy avid hunters..
My grandfather was a soybean farmer who worked every day of his life on his 100 acre farm by himself..
I am theleast emotional person you have ever met. I care only about the 1+1 of the situation and nothing for the emotional side..
BECAUSE FEELINGS ARE NOT REAL..
All of the right wing media narratives I can think of are based on logical fallacies.. arguments that are considered objectively false.. so much so
that you lose points for using them in any regulated debate setting..
And these Conservative logical fallacies are not pushed by random college kids or internet commenters..... they are pushed by GOP elected officials
and the biggest conservative talking heads on the planet..
For example : the last few years every conservative commentator has been pretending like the left started all the identity politics stuff....
American racial Identity politics didn’t start with abolition or the civil rights movement.. look at any paper of the time or before and the
conservatives are race baiting white Americans to hate whatever group they point at..
It is objectively a fictional reality.. that is why 99% of all the scientists , teachers and college professors are liberals. Because they are selling
emotional nonsense crafted to propagandize stupid people..
B) That’s exactly why we should establish a transparent way to test media sources..
If we can transparently prove one side tells bigger and more lies then the only people who don’t believe it are people being willfully ignorant..
I’ve thought about it some more and I actually think the best way might be to create a forum for propaganda stories and give each source its own
thread with a ticker at the top.
From there people submit stories they think are fake or propaganda, and if it meets the criteria the ticket adds a point.
Therules for what constitutes propaganda are easy. We just use the age old list of logical fallacies that would be counted against you in ANY judged
Ad hominem, ad polonium, exc. exc. exc..
Whatever source has the highest ticker count is objectively pushing more propaganda..
Hell, I could write the code for a counter lol..
I bet it would be too easy for a mod to set it up.
