Newspeak TV...

/I highly doubt anyone paying attention is actually surprised by this.

I'm not sure Michelle Malkin understands what white supremacy actually is.

Fox News is too liberal.  Newsmax and OANN are where it's it.

I thought about her just recently when the subtitle said "natives speaking Tagalog" during a scene were real estate  mercenaries were slaughtering a village to clear way for a toxic chemical plant.

So a jobs program for all those Trump flunkies who are unemployable in decent places?

I was thinking that Newsmax would be for those who think OANN is too liberal.

Newsmax?  The floor-humper site?
 
2020-10-24 8:56:25 AM  
Who knew NewsMax was still a thing - wonder if that guy and his floor finally settled down.  There seems to be an awful lot of content being produced for a small, insane segment of the population.

Everyone that thinks things will get better after Trump is voted out...

He will either have his own network or be a big part of the ultra-wingnut news outlets like OANN and Newsmax TV. He will still have his Twitter account. A sizeable portion of the country will leave Fox for this even crazier news bubble - weighing down progress for the next decade and electing crazier and crazier candidates from rural "Republican" districts.
 
2020-10-24 8:58:46 AM  
Oh Christ. This explains why my dad was suddenly texting me about this as his new preferred news source. Fox News being 'too pussy' these days. It really does baffle me how a smart man can be lured in by this blatant propaganda. I don't get it. It's just so sad.

The "conservatives" are willing to pay to broadcast their propaganda.

Here on fark too many of our "enlightened" folks gripe about paywalls because they want their news for free. Newsflash, somebody is paying for it. If you help pay for it, it might be more legitimate. If you have the Kochs and the Murdocks pay for it  .  .  .  connect the dots.

As long as the white supremacists treat Malkin like a loyal pet instead of cattle to be slaughtered, she's down with it.

So the superspreader event for ACB was sabotage? These people are so close to understanding.

This was Trump's plan all along.  Stupid electoral college forced him to put it on hold for four years.

How is this filth legal / tolerated / acceptable but you still can't show a naked human body on the television?

I would rather have my descendants know what a real human being looks like than listen to the filth and hate based lies spread by corporation owned hucksters.

Humans are real. Conservatives are avatars.

Idk. Seems to be real fracture in gop. If a sizable portion want to stay far-right it will likely split an already shrinking part, imo

They are next to Fox and OANN on my FIOS lineup and have been there for years. Verizon is a right-wing company, so no surprises.

The article itself tells me that their 7 p.m. show gets 60,000 viewers. That threatens no one.

I think she understands it the same way Candace Owens understands it. They want to be seen as "one of the good ones".

Keep an eye on TX when the 2022 midterms gear up.  Allen West could spearhead an effort to primary Greg Abbott.  That would be glorious.

I have a friend who is an immigrant from Jamaica. For a year or so he was a photographer for Newsmax. He's a very smart guy but now and then he'll say something that's a right wing nutty story and I'll be reminded that his time there has left him with this weird sort of conservative herpes that flares up without warning

What's going to hurt Fox News the most is not being able to brag about their precious ratings.
Keep in mind that Fox News isn't #1 because they're a source for your racist uncle, but because they're your ONLY source for your racist uncle. Yes, I know that there are other outlets, but that's like comparing MSNBC (not a dedicated liberal outlet, but you know what I mean) to The Young Turks.

If you're not a right-winger, you have multiple sources: MSNBC, CNN, PBS/NPR, al-Jazeera, BBC. If you ARE a right-winger, you have Fox News and that's pretty much it. That's where their ratings come from and that's how they can get PACs and big donors to pump money in after their commercial sponsors leave after Tucker calls Bette Midler the n-word or something.

He'll be too busy spending time in court when all his legal troubles come home to roost..
Then he'll die.

Boomers have money.

Stupid boomers will spend that money buying junk from you at inflated prices.

You can see why there's a market here (for ads, I mean) if a network can target stupid boomers, specifically.

Trump never expected to win in 2016. He expected to lose and then create OANN, his own news network, where he would spend the next 4 years biatching about "rigged elections" and "how much better the country would have been if only he had won."

He had no idea that Putin had much bigger plans for him. Just at his face during the inauguration parade in Washington, DC in 2016. It's the textbook definition of "holy shiat. I'm in way over my head."

They both have news in their title but provide no such thing.  Frauds.

I don't think Trump is self aware enough to ever think "I am in over my head." His ego and ignorance probably said to him "yes, finally people will respect and obey me as the living deity that I am."

Newsmax advertises emergency radios on the local station (KKOB)

I wonder if it only tunes to 1 frequency?  and what would a RWNJ be doing listening to the govt. in an emergency when there are guns to be caressed?
