    Caligula's Horse in the White House has been rather specific about who he was referring to

    The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!

    The press are not our friend. When do they answer for their election meddling? I still want to know who was behind the blacklisting of Ron Paul. That was a well coordinated strategy across ALL mainstream media.

    How would you describe a media organization intentionally misleading people

    I'm a big consumer of media. I like to think I am a critical consumer. I don't watch much of the Big 3 network news. I watch CNN now and then, and think they have gone downhill a lot in the past 10-15 years. NY Times I love. I recognize their subtle liberal biases. WP I like even more. They aren't perfect either.

    As far as I can tell none of these news organizations are dishonest. They make mistakes. They have biases, subtle and not so subtle in some cases. But none of them are a propaganda subsidiary of a political organization. I think Fox is very close to being a propaganda subsidiary. Russia Today certainly is.

    ymmv

    During my 10 hour layover in Moscow airport a week and a half ago I forgot to take pictures of the various RT stations set up throughout the airport.

    I know @nsacpi and @cajunrevenge would have appreciated it. Being in that airport was like temporarily being in another world. The atmosphere in that airport was nothing I've ever experienced before.

    But one way or another you sing the song / tow the line to the message they originate
    which begs the age old question

    what propaganda ?
    .....

    So yeah I believe you saying you dont watch Fox overtly but ...
    It is so obvious

    Castro will be remembered for generations while Bush 41 will go down as a one term president
    Not that hard to understand

    and if you dont there are volumes of books written on Castro and the global influence he has had since the early 1950's
    Might want to check 2 or 3 out of the library.

    Or, get 3rd or 4th hand Fox reenactments
    Suit yourself
