Ken Larsen's website - Propaganda Tactics of Right Wing Conservatives
The Conservative Right Wing faction uses a multiplicity of tactics to promote their cause and denigrate Left Wing Liberals. Here is a timeline of the players and their tactics:
Rupert Murdoch (born March 11, 1931) is a right wing conservative from Australia. He has become a naturalized U.S. citizen. He and
the Koch brothers developed an elaborate scheme to use their wealth
to turn TV and radio stations into propaganda machines to brainwash
Americans into supporting far right wing causes. This
elaborate scheme was concocted solely so that Murdoch and the Koch
brothers could expand their wealth by not paying taxes ... reducing
taxes on the very wealthy. This plan has worked brilliantly.
Murdoch purportedly is worth $ 15 billion.
|3||Fairness Doctrine||[details] This once was a policy of the FCC. It was created in 1949. The FCC eliminated it in 1989. Removal permitted media moguls such as Rupert Murdoch to convert a station into a propaganda machine without fear of reprisal.|
|4||Telecommunications Act of 1996||
This was the first major overhaul of telecommunication law in almost
62 years. One controversial aspect was some de-regulation which
permitted media companies to greatly expand their ownership of TV
and radio stations.
This act permitted people like Rupert Murdoch to buy large numbers of TV and radio stations and convert each into a propaganda machine.
|5||Sinclair Broadcast Group||
This is a conservative conglomerate that owns 173 TV stations and is
on the verge of acquiring 42 more. They use those TV stations
to promote their conservative agenda. Each one operates like a
Fox News station.

|6||Fox News||Created in 1996 by Murdoch, this "news" station is a bullhorn to dispense fake news and denigrate liberals. It is yellow journalism. [examples]|
|7||Sock puppets||An online identity created solely for the purposes of deception.|
|8||Russia||St. Petersburg, Russia is the home of hackers and sock puppets who try to sow dissent and chaos in the U.S. by promoting anti-immigration beliefs.|
|9||Donald Trump||Donald Trump won the 2016 Presidential election not because he was the better candidate. He won because millions of Americans had been brainwashed by the aforementioned propaganda machine.|
(February 2018) If you don't think you're being manipulated by right wing "news" networks, do I have begun doing: I've begun reading the Fox News website on a regular basis to see how they report current events. Then, I switch to the CNN, MSN, and Al Jazeera websites to see how they cover the same events. The omissions and attacks by Fox News demonstrate that they have become masters at manipulation.
