I am sure Aldous Huxley will forgive me, I am sure nearly everyone who doesn’t watch Fox News has heard about the Sinclair group and how they are using local news outlets to spout propaganda for the Trump Administration.
We have a had a problem in the United States for probably more than a decade in regards to how people get their news. The biggest bad example would be Fox Mouth piece (always reminds me of the mouthpiece of Sauron the Lieutenant of Barad-dûr).
Distorted news is always an issue as an uninformed electorate can me manipulated much easier than an educated one. But the recent trend to just lie (alternative facts), is so disturbing it makes me wonder how this ignorant and proud of it trend can be reversed.
I can understand if you are indoctrinated that is what you know, but how can the United States compete in the future if we continue to allow the political parties to squander the future. And so called news outlets to treat the population as pawns to help the people in power stay in power.If the USA is ever going to be great again, because at the moment it’s not. The people who tell the lies must be shown to be what they truly are.
The future is for the young, I just hope they can get a decent enough education to be able to make an informed decision because too many adults today cannot.
My advice to anyone is get your news from multiple sources, I use BBC, NPR, RTE, NHK, The times is a good news source, but I don’t subscribe! maybe I should start since local news is now tainted!
