Eh? We don't have an official propaganda outlet. I suppose one could say the press secretary would be the closest... :dunno:

The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country. —Hermann Göring

More human rights being investigated, but not by those promoting gender politics.

I was afraid you'd say that Seabass. So, how do we disseminate propaganda?

If it's not official, how can I protect myself?

How do we define propaganda? Is Fox News propaganda?

Trustworthy fact-checkers, media watchdogs, variety, and common sense, I guess... :dunno:

Of course there's also still new orgs that try to maintain impartiality like AP, Reuters, McClatchy for example. PBS, NBC, CBS, ABC news tend to be pretty neutral...

I like to see how media describes a character I know. For instance, they often misrepresent some people as racist, or otherwise suitable for de-platforming (Lindsay Shepard is a fine example) but when you know what really happened, it is more of a story about the media than anything else.

How they report on things (or fail to) can show some facts about the media. Much more rarely, the mainstream media can show some facts about news.

I'm still waiting for them to drag a bunch of wealthy celebreties through the mud...the Epstein case should provide lurid stories for quite some time, and that will REALLY sell a lot of advertising space. Heck, they might even cut back on some of their lay-offs.

I know that some conservatives have renamed NPR as 'National People's Radio.'

Ah the old days. :{D

Listening on the Short Wave to "Voice of America" and its anti-communist tirade and then switching over to "Radio Moscow" complaining about the USA and its "running dogs". Radio Moscow had better English.
I also listened amongst many other stations to a certain "Radio Hilversum" which I thought was some form of German. I was at time given as small child often receives, a folder of writing paper from a "Hotel Kurhaus" in place called Scheveningen, which is now five minutes from where I live now, from family acquaintances. I have had afternoon tea many times there. Strange old world sometimes.

A very "grand" hotel.

I'm not ignoring anything. Just pointing out an assault, which led to injury.

You seem to be good with it, but the US authorities have asked their law enforcement to investigate them for organized crime activity.

Keep defending them! Why don't you call me a Nazi or something, for defending Ngo without knowing what kind of news he reports?

If you want to show me another journalist being beaten, I'll condemn it. Even if they are shitty journalists.

Will you? If Tommy Robinson is killed in prison, how will that suit you, from a 'justice' point of view?

Andy Ngo is an anti anti-fascist propagandist who intentionally placed himself within a swinging arm's distance from said antifas, and with the full knowledge that he will likely be hit by milkshakes and fists, his mental state is really problematic.

From an article by Joseph Bernstein, who accompanied him on the day:
“Joe I’m concerned,” he wrote me. “How would you keep yourself safe?” ...

Andy Ngo was hardly a random bystander: The 33-year-old is suddenly one of the most prominent young figures in all of right-wing media. He made his name in part through his activism...
