    I think it’s pretty clear that these people don’t give a shit what they say.

    And they're still no less selective about their targets. Wonder how they'll react when Trump gets a tad too crony capitalistic and statist for their liking?

  • Hard News: The fake news problem, in reply to Neil,

    The smearing of Obama and Clinton along with the minimising of the brutality of Assad and Putin must be one of the most effect propaganda campaigns in recent years.

    Nothing's changed much since the Soviet-era Active Measures programme. You can take Putin out of the KGB, but not the KGB out of Putin.

  • Hard News: The fake news problem, in reply to Tom Semmens,

    I have not heard a single corporate MSM entity talk about war weariness in America or about the human consequences of endless war and the possibility the an American population that is war weary voted to end war.

    Trump is no pacifist. More likely he’s a reactionary isolationist in the vein of Henry Ford and Charles Lindbergh who were known sympathisers of European Fascism in the 1930s.
