Pushback on Murdoch/Conservative media


Recommended Posts

Now that the orange buffoon is gone are Americans outraged that Merde Orc's Fox and conservative media enabled, endorsed and condoned the serial lying racist and pussy grabber for these long years?  Is there going to be a nation wide boycott of advertisers or is business going to continue to allow Rupert's Hannity, Carlson and other simpering apologists to continue their bile, bias and smear for the GOP and their vested interest billionaire backers?

Watch Fox. Hannity called Biden's first week as president "a complete failure." They will continue to do exactly what they have been doing for the past 20 years. They have no interest in presenting news. They are motivated by ratings, and ratings alone IMO. They have 74 million people brainwashed into believing the other half of the country is going to take their guns, kill their unborn children, and sodomize their local minister. No one walks away from that kind of power. No one.

That would be one way of solving the problem. Some of those smiling pastors might actually like a large cock up their ass.

Why did you put Lord Ian Dubin on ignore? He was a hoot. Of course, when you can see the posts mocking him without actually seeing his posts, I suppose it saves time.

Arm(pit)ido was fucking waste of cells, too. At least he really had a boat but he fucked it up

There are a lot of people who abuse the anonymity of the interWWWebs to try and get their personal rocks off, belittling others. They always give themselves away because this is a character weakness... they can't help it. Some of them occasionally still post interesting/educational sailing stuff, but there's usually too much noise mixed in.

The Dubinator didn't take himself too seriously, he was fun. I got the impression he was fitting in here rather well, but apparently he didn't enjoy it enough to stick around.

What is it with the defeatism about reining in FOX ? 

They have already lost tons of advertisers, with many more to follow, one would hope. Folks can spend time on that. 

And there is a newer effort in the works in which cable networks are pressured to drop them. I'm all over that. 

https://unfoxmycablebox.com/ 

(because of cable/streaming deals, you likely pay FOX around $ 20 per year so they can destroy everything you believe in . . ) 

Although there are other fascist-lite outlets around, Newsmax, hate radio, etc. none has close to anything like the impact that FOX does - 

(this is clearly established in the recent book Network Propaganda, which I just finished.) 

Real lefties play the long game, and don't throw in the towel.

Dubin and I traded a few PM's. His entire focus for joining SA was on promoting the new book by Chas from Taz. Once that was done, Ian faded back into moonlight strolls in the car park.

Fox are no longer the fount of all wisdom. They didn't give Whatsisname enough support over the election BS, and they didn't come out in support of the Capitol coup attempt.

Gab.com is the new home for RW loonies. I just had a quick look at the pics on the first page. A regional politician wearing a "Cold War veteran" set of colors, riding a Harley, shooting a machine gun. A cop shooting a machine gun, vowing to bring more of his brother officers around to his way of thinking.  Beautiful photos of sunsets in Texas and Montana. Made me think of a twisted modern cowboy movie, scripted by Mel Brooks.

No doubt the FBI have an office full of people monitoring them.

I introduced 3 bills this week:

1. A bill to prevent funding for the Paris Accord.

2. A bill to halt funding to the WHO until we hold them accountable for their role in COVID.

3. A bill to overturn Biden’s Mask mandate.

I just posted this on a FaceBook YouTube-TV users site . .    

Speaking of "news" channels, I wonder if any of you would support YT-TV making FOX news an add-on. Because of their extreme partisanship and disregard for the truth, which I will be happy to document, they are a threat to our democratic republic. Feel free to watch it if you want, but don't make me pay for it. (Through cable and streaming services, most of us pay around $20 per year for FOX whether we watch it or not.)

Well, THAT did not end well . . . the FB page blew up with Reichista outrage . .  lasted several hours, then the message below 

FDOX news has poisoned the minds of millions. Tonight I listened for a bit to Laura Ingram - 100% demonizing Dems, and I mean demonizing. She made no rational points at all, but made sure to hammer that Joe Biden was a horrible catholic.

Any attempts at de-polarizing the USA will fail as long as these talking heads are allowed to spout lies.  The end result is a large population of ignorant people willing to do things like storm the Capitol on the false notion that an election was rigged.

I don't see how this ends well for the US.  Now we have the Gab.com CEO Torba intent on constructing the new Christian Patriot society with its own internet, economy, laws, and presumably land and military, separate from the rest of the world which is overrun by communism.   He is backed by a lot of the religious right who have wanted this for years.  These people believe they are on a religious crusade.

We may be watching the beginning of the biggest and most powerful cult in American history, formed from the 70 million Trump voters.

I agree - and would urge you to contact your cable/streaming services and ask them to dump FAUX . . or to make it an add-on. 

As it is now, we are forced to pay FOX about $20 per year, even it we never watch it. Those high subscriber fees insulate FOX from the loss of revenue from the advertisers that are leaving in droves.

Football players will try to move the ball after a tackle when it is obscured by the pile of bodies before the refs spot the ball. Bullshitters do that with linguistics. If someone calls Trump a Russian asset, a bullshitter will move the ball a couple of yards to Russian agent and argue against that straw man, yet disclaim any responsibility for the divide in our country that the alternate reality their bullshit has spawned. Noticing that and identifying the bullshit isn’t just unfair, it is SO Unfair. Just be glad that your parents taught you to tell the truth.

The media is not a buzz word, it's very real. It disseminates the information we consume and influences public opinion. People believed that Trump was a Russian agent and that Manhattan would be flooded by 2015 because the media (85% of which are Democrats) hyped it.

Well, sure. Who benefited from many many things Trump did? Things that were almost inexplicable, in any other context? Who did Trump praise and smile at and demand be given a seat in the G20 (among other things)? Who was his original National Security Advisor working for? etc etc

But then, you get into an argument about "what's a patsy" versus "what's an agent" or asset or useful idiot or whatever.

Because nuance!
