If you lie on NBC...you're suspended for 6 months. If you lie on FOX...you get the "Full Support" of your boss! And probably a raise!...Roger Aisles believes there's no shame in lying! He's admitted that FoxNews is a political arm of the GOP!...Roger dodger 'is' the Chief of Propaganda for the Republican Party!...so, why would anyone expect anything different?
#1 Propaganda Technique? NAME CALLING or STEREOTYPING: "Giving a person or an idea a bad label by using an easy to remember pejorative name. This is used to make us reject and condemn a person or idea without examining what the label really means". Sounds familiar?
#6 Propaganda Technique? PLAIN FOLKS: This is a way that a speaker convinces an audience that an idea is good because they are the same ideas of the vast majority of people like yourself. Examples: "This is the will of the People", "Most Americans...". etc, etc, etc! Sounds familiar?
#8 Propaganda Technique? ARTIFICIAL DICHOTOMY: "This is when someone tries to claim there are only two sides to an issue and that both sides must have equal presentation in order to be evaluated. This technique is used to dupe people into believing there is only one way to look at an issue, when, in fact, there may be many alternative viewpoints or "sides". It simplifies reality, therefore, distorts it often to the advantage of the speaker. Sounds familiar?
I can go on with at least 45 more Techniques...but everyone knows what's going on!...and it's being done in the open! with the public acknowledging it. Apparently, it works...look at Red America at the local community level, and in the US Congress...when apathy is rampant, those short of a cookie...run the Cookie Factory
The difference between NBC and FOX is...on NBC, it was one individual...on FOX is not only O'Reilly, but you're encouraged by the Boss, himself! And naturally, if you want to keep your job...you read your q-card and lie! There's a reason why almost all Females that work for FOX are blonde and look like the Stepford Wives...just staring at the cameras, all saying the same thing.
It's all about perception...what ideas you want to exploit people to believe and follow, how to lie your way throughout...and at the end, come out on top! The grand illusion that the Republican Party is the all-wise, all-knowledgeable, all decency and honesty, love of Family, love of God, love of America, God Bless America! and the good old Red, White, and Blue!...it's Bibles and Flags! They elevated themselves above the public, so they can look down at you, like snobbish bigots.
Roger must have fallen in love with Cleveland's "Fox 8 News In The Morning", and Kristi Capel's extraordinary racist "Jigaboo" comment. It's right up Ailes alley. The fact that she apologized for the remark on Twitter, by saying; "I had no idea it was a word or what it meant"...makes you think a little. A woman with a Bachelor's Degree in Communication and Public Relations...a professional News Host or Co-Host...and her answer is: "I had no idea it was a word or what it meant"?? Or is it that her true feelings blurted out of her mouth...and she had to backtrack herself?
In Psychology, they say people have inherent biases in the way they perceive the world and these biases can be used to manipulate them! Other than Goebbels, no one has ever used more propaganda and subliminal techniques on their own people, than Ailes and the GOP...and all for one purpose...
