I was in a room today with a television tuned to Fox News, so I got some rare exposure. Many of the gripes aired were legitimate, some even spot on. An issue that caught my attention was Fox using the terms “the left” and “Democratic Party” interchangeably. I don’t define that party to be left at all. It’s mostly a roaring, contemptible, dangerous disaster, but not left.
For me, that party closely resembles the other party but with a few pretty glittery things tacked on. Same bombers, same aggression, same gutting of everything. The mind reels.
Mainline corporate news outlets of any stripe are of low value truth wish, of high value propaganda wise. With that in mind, one can learn from them.
