    Arizona, just read my "thread" above yours; it is the "cause and effect" which they will never learn about in this country.

    "Free speech" should be "curbed" and should have "defined limits" as they do all over the world, except here. Amen

    Where are the laws to prevent all of this craziness? It' n't it time to do something about curbing "free speech" especially if run by an Australian owner? There must be a way to bring all the "media" in line to give only "facts" on the news and not act as an "sidearm" of the White House. Sorry but this country is lacking control of itself in lots of area's let alone "guns"

    As I've said many times lots of times an revamp and review is urgently required to set things straight in this country; but our "leaders" seem to close their eyes fully for it. The "media circus" should be "controlled" and "limited " about what they can "spew" into the air. It is done overseas and there they don't have this crazy partisan B.S. as here.

    "Free Speech" can only go so far ; but not as do here to function as an "indoctrination" tool to undermine our few laws and "structured" society. Here it is just an antique "old west" circus, which will be ruining the country forever.

    Dutch:

    Back in the "good old days", there was a rule in effect that ensured that networks would only present facts. It was called the Fairness Doctrine.

    During the first year of Reagan's presidency, Walter Cronkite, the "most trusted man in America, retired, after being on air (radio and television) for 44 years.

    Reagan repealed the Fairness Doctrine in 1987, and Rush Limbaugh started broadcasting a year later. FOX was started in 1996.

    So as you wrote and things in the past were noticed and dealt with, is n't it long overdue to "clean up all these "anomalies" in the media and get the lunatics out of the government etc.

    In other words in 1987 they "knew" something was wrong; but now let's stick our heads in the sand?.

    I guess it is now much more urgent then in 1987 to do something; it is now totally a run away train with consequences.

    Yes it is la la land for sure; be proud of it!

    A Capitol defendant who bought into former President Donald Trump’s lies about a stolen election came down with “Foxitus” and “Foxmania” after watching too much Fox News, his attorney told a court on Thursday.

    Anthony Antonio’s attorney told a D.C. magistrate judge that after Antonio was laid off because of the coronavirus pandemic last year, he spent all his time living in a home with four other individuals who watched a lot of Fox News.

    “For the next approximate six months, Fox television played constantly,” lawyer Joseph Hurley said. “He became hooked with what I call ‘Foxitus’ or ‘Foxmania’ and became interested in the political aspect and started believing what was being fed to him.”

    Fox News and the Trump administration had a symbiotic relationship for much of Donald Trump’s presidency, though this grew more dangerous and intense in the lead-up to and aftermath of the 2020 election. The network amplified Trump’s fiction about a rigged election and vice-versa. Trump’s allies were allowed to broadcast their baseless claims largely unchecked during repeated appearances on-air to Fox’s millions of viewers. And even after hundreds of pro-Trump rioters, inspired by the lie, laid siege to the Capitol, some hosts at the network downplayed what happened, spread conspiracy theories about it, and defended the insurrectionists.

    Like I've said many times; put "limits" on "free speech" as they do in other civil countries. Here it is still the old "wild west" and put your "gun" on the table if you don't like something. So if an Biden does not do anything about the "media" and "guns" as well on how "elections" should be run, under an unified honest system for all the 50 States, without all the B.S as is done now; and should be done by an "CENTRAL" uniform non-partisan Federal oversight committee.

    The news "media" shall be curtailed during any election period from interfering (via any interviews/news etc.) into any election and not be allowed to spew any propaganda during such period. Neither shall any "lobby group" such as the NRA etc. If you see the "gun" lobby adds lately, I have to puke!!!

    On Friday, of the top 10 most popular Facebook posts, nine were from far-right extremists, including Ben Shapiro and Franklin Graham.

    And every weeknight, more than 3 million people tune in to watch Tucker Carlson on Fox News. It's the largest audience of any show on cable news.

    The right wing is dominating on TV and social media, reaching tens of millions of people and feeding them baseless lies and propaganda. Which is why it's no surprise that dangerous conspiracy theories about the COVID-19 vaccine and wild lies about a stolen election are spreading like wildfire across the country. In fact, a new poll shows that more than half of all Republicans still believe the 2020 election was stolen from Donald Trump

    According to MIT, false news travels six times faster on Twitter than the truth.

    We saw on January 6 the deadly consequences of the right-wing echo chamber, when Trump and his enablers ignited a white supremacist insurrection that left lawmakers running for their lives, dozens injured, and five people dead. And it could have been much worse.

    Are you surprised? As long as there is no discipline in the media and no "limits' of what they can do and say then that is the result if you there are no "curbs" on anything here. In Europe they learned their lessons, but here it is just the old wild west, without any limits what you can spew. If these things are not "curbed" then the standing of this country erodes quickly. As well becomes ungovernable over time as is now the case. The media is an very dangerous tool, ask Hitler. Propaganda has cost many lives and created lots of wars during the centuries. Wake up America, don't you let an bunch of rowdy uneducated assholes run the country by spewing lies etc. Do something about that Biden!

    Once again, the nation is witnessing the terrifying ease with which the FOX News network and other right-wing propaganda outlets can concoct and promote an entirely baseless moral panic with just a few weeks of nightly fearmongering. The latest absurd fake issue of the day is the “critical race theory” conspiracy, which alleges far-left public school teachers are teaching suburban children that they are inherently racist because they are white and being taught to hate their country.

    To be clear, this is not happening. “Critical race theory” is an intellectual framework for looking at racism, certain ideas of which — like the concept that racism is systemic and not just the ideas of a few bad apples — are being incorporated into certain schools’ efforts to teach kids about racism in America. But there is no widespread effort to promote critical race theory in schools; instead, the term has been hijacked by Republicans to mean “anything that teaches kids to not be racist” or “anything that would criticize the state of race relations in America today.”

    PBS Newshour journalist Amna Nawaz’s experience at yesterday’s school board meeting in Loudoun County, Virginia, highlights just how effective Republican propaganda efforts have been in turning parents against their public schools with ridiculous conspiracies. Over 121 parents had signed up to speak at this meeting, and what they had to say is extremely disturbing:

    Like the “Satanic rock music” panic of the 1980s, the hysteria around “critical race theory” is entirely contrived to fuel hate clicks and TV ratings in a period of general political stagnancy — but like everything FOX does, it also serves to promote white supremacy by convincing suburban parents that any attempt to grapple with or acknowledge the horrifying treatment of African-Americans in America is some kind of communist plot.

    There’s no getting around it; FOX News and the right-wing propaganda machine are literally poisoning the minds of the American people, filling their heads with outrageous conspiracies and smearing the Democrats with a brush of radicalism that they are far too timid to deserve. FOX hosts Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham regularly promote open white supremacist ideas from their enormous platforms, and the latest conspiracy about “critical race theory” is just the next narrative that they’re pushing to fill in lieu of offering any actual political solutions to the issues facing the American people today.

    Read my other "proza" about this; sorry to say, what you write is obvious. The Nazi propaganda created WWII, so watch out for the media influence, especially in the present day times, because of all the new gadgets we have nowadays to spread lies and garbage.

    If things are not "controlled by our "central government" and made uniform for everyone, including the "media" then the "oversight" is missing and you will get eventually the "Hitler" effect. People here especially in the central low population States are "gullible" for these things as well what the "churches" spew from their pulpits.

    Peter Doocey is the White House correspondent for FOX, and he is not exactly the sharpest tool in the shed.

    Fortunately, Jen Psaki is a master of putting him in his place, and she will be sorely missed when she leaves her position sometime next year.
