    I dont know about misinformation, but clearly a major player in the growing divide of our politics. For example, the ENTIRE country botched covid for the first two months, yet they never put a spotlight on our Dem governor Gavin Newsome, or NY governor, who allowed his state to send airplanes all over the country during an outbreak. That's a major screw up.

    Failed reporting sure. But propaganda?

    These are 2 very different things.

    Again that's why I always say, CNN is **** sure, but they aren't left-wing propaganda. There's a difference.

    Oh and I completely agree on Cuomo. He's a PoS, and he's tried to throw Trump under the bus for every failure in New York. Trump deserves a lot of blame for Covid, but we can't allow Cuomo to weasel out of responsibility for this.

    He also sent the first wave of Covid patients to retirement homes. And I think he's preventing a study to see how many people he killed by doing that. Although I think I was just told that 2nd part, I haven't done any digging on the subject.

    Oh and I suggest anyone to read the book "This is not Propaganda". It's related to the propaganda used in Russia to develop huge mistrust in the media... It might feel eerily similar to what has happened the last 5 years.

    No, you're right: you were probably just as tuned in to politics and media propaganda as a child as you are now in your 30's (aka not at all).

    In case you were not aware, you're talking to a guy who actively watches and compliments CGTN, all while constantly claiming everyone else (left and right) is so inundated with American propaganda that they can't properly think for themselves. Dude's views on this subject are cartoonish at best.

    If the failed reporting is consistent and purposeful, I would consider it propganda.

    I might be using that word more lightly than most people do.

    There is something to be said when the target is on a 7 year olds back. Innocence is a powerful thing.

    You had no clue what propganda was when your mind was in that stage. I did. Not fleshed out or fully coherent, not even recognized at the time, but I did have a clue.

    Well that's actually a huge topic. Even people who study history, psychology and other relevant intellectuals can have a problem accurately defining it.

    What I get worried about is really the repetition of Fox and even worse Trump. The way he kept interrupting Biden in the debate saying "Hunter Biden" and "emails". This is how you manipulate someone's world view. Especially after 4 years of using the "fake news" narrative. And you slowly but surely connect these dots to create a new world view.

    A good leftist example of this is Kyle Kulinski on secular talk (a terrible youtube channel). He pushes the "deep state" mythos, and constantly does the same thing. He constantly does the "i told you so", but constantly plays both sides. He repeats the same phrases constantly. Slowly changing them over time. Slowly downloading his worldview (or the worldview he wants you to believe). It's very intentional. And it's very manipulative.

    CNN just isn't anywhere near Fox in this. It's comparing a sniffle to Colon cancer as far as danger goes.

    I agree on your CNN vs. FOX point. To be fair, I think many on PSD began basically equating the two as a way to satiate SpecialFNK's constant belly aching about CNN. Kind of a "yes, they're a poor and biased news source too" sort of preemptive compromise made in an attempt to lessen the chance of him turning every single thread in to his favorite never ending bias in media conversation (which ends up happening regardless unfortunately). While CNN certainly isn't my choice for news, they aren't nearly as ridiculous and dangerous as FOX.

So much so, some people just flat out believe the covid is a hoax. They're like the news just lies.

    I see a clear difference. If you dont then ok. You dont have to agree.
    You didn't answer ... do you know what a politician is saying when they say "Trust me"?

    I agree that the news media was different in the past but that doesn't really mean anything, you said the awareness of fake news is new and it's absolutely not.

    If the news wasn't controlled by corporate interests in the 60s and 70s why does the move Network (1976) exist?

    ABC is the most moderate place for news in cable.. And guess what? They're the worst rated. People love bias. They just think it makes them look smart to say how bad bias is.
    I don't think they think about it at all. People fundamentally like to see news they agree with ... it's not a conscious decision for most humans.

    The whole two party system results in it by default. Us vs them is a powerful message and it's easy to sell.

    I still don't really know the last time I heard CNN use actually propaganda in their reporting. Granted I don't watch much of them anymore.

    What wide spread opinions of misinformation have been spread by CNN?
    I don't consume any of them but I think we need to start with a definition of "fake news".

    Is it fake news if the headline puts a spin on a story that is disingenuous?

    Is it fake news if the images used on a story put a spin on a story that is disingenuous?

    Is it fake news if the a significant portion of the story is omitted to put a spin on a story that is disingenuous?

    Or does a story have to be a total fabrication to qualify?
