The two seemingly opposed positions being stated, example Fox good guys, CNN bad guys vrs Cnn good guys, Fox bad guys, can be studied in unison to find the synthesis or higher truth that both to some common degree are what they claim the other to be. From this we may arrive at a ''higher truth'' that mass media is highly propagandist and not to be trusted on an existential level at all. On an existential level, I find it hard to even trust myself.

Not so strange actually.
NAZI /Engish translation/ National Socialist Workers Party.
Nazis were Socialists. Then under Hitler they evolved to total fascists and totalitarians. The evolution is totally normal for extreme Socialists. The only real difference is that Fascism is honest about their intentions.
In 1919 a Munich locksmith named Anton Drexler founded the Deutsche Arbeiterpartei (DAP; German Workers’ Party). Political parties were still a relatively new phenomenon in Germany, and the DAP—renamed the Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei (NSDAP; National Socialist German Workers’ Party, or Nazi Party) in 1920—was one of several fringe players vying for influence in the early years of the Weimar Republic. It is entirely possible that the Nazis would have remained a regional party, struggling to gain recognition outside Bavaria, had it not been for the efforts of Adolf Hitler. Hitler joined the party shortly after its creation, and by July 1921 he had achieved nearly total control of the Nazi political and paramilitary apparatus.
to say that Hitler understood the value of language would be an enormous understatement. Propaganda played a significant role in his rise to power. To that end, he paid lip service to the tenets suggested by a name like National Socialist German Workers’ Party, but his primary—indeed, sole—focus was on achieving power whatever the cost and advancing his racist, anti-Semitic agenda. After the failure of the Beer Hall Putsch, in November 1923, Hitler became convinced that he needed to utilize the teetering democratic structures of the Weimar government to attain his goals.
Originally, the term was used in Germany before the rise of NSDAP as a colloquial and derogatory word referring to an awkward, backward, and clumsy peasant. It would go on to be used as a mockery of the name Ignatz—a German variation of Ignatius.

I wonder where Zucker's wife fit into his 'consensual' relationship with his coworker? They divorced in 2019 after 23 years of marriage.
