Crank up that good ol’ propaganda machine!

“The Trump administration’s leading candidate to head the Broadcasting Board of Governors, a position that with recent changes would give the appointee unilateral power over the United States’ government messaging abroad reaching millions, is a conservative documentarian with ties to White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, according to two people with direct knowledge of the situation.”

“Once confirmed, the new CEO could hire his or her own directors for the five networks under BBG and theoretically push whatever message he or she chose without the board’s approval.”

Fuck! This makes FoxNews look like a rain soaked paper flyer stapled to a telephone pole.

How is this legal or ethical? (Wait, don’t tell me, it’s not.)

It’s sure convenient that 45 - a man that once famously stated, “torture works” is ensuring this tax payer funded report never sees the light of day.

Maybe a hero will leak it.

ETA looks like I’m late to the party on this one.

A White House spokeswoman said the policy of the administration is “to accommodate the requests of chairmen, regardless of their political party.” There are no Democratic chairmen, as Congress is controlled by Republicans.

If that changes in 2018, they’ll move that goal post pretty fast.

What the hell is a dimm?

Possibly it’s a reference to “dhimmi”, and attempt to link it both to those who are not very bright, and to democrats. I’m not familiar with dobbs, though.

Dimm is Muslims/Muslim-sympathisers, Globalists are Jews. It ain’t subtle.

If I recall correctly, he used to do boring business journalism, like “We’ve brought in five experts to talk about why the Federal Reserve is raising interest rates this week,” but then a few years ago he realized there’s a lot more money to be made selling xenophobia.

What the fuck? Seriously? I mean, I am aware that Fox news is bad, just by osmosis, but I’ve never actually been exposed to it. Wow.

That’s what you get for studying real history and current affairs instead of gobbledygook.

Guess I’m not as smart as the dudes around here. At least that’s the impression I’ve been getting this week.

Whoever came up with that stupid term is the dumbass, not you.

dobbs also uses dimm as a synonym for Democrat, as in “lead dimm Chuck Schumer”.

That ranks somewhere below Demoncraps in the pantheon of stupid terms for Democrats.

Schoolyard name-calling.

I wonder if any studies confirm my suspicion that the right does that far more then the left (not that I don’t indulge in it sometimes).
