How Does America Protect Itself From a 24/7 Billionaire Funded Propaganda News Outlet?

Thom plus logo Back 2011, a study from Farley Dickinson University found that people who watch Fox News are actually measurably less likely to know facts about current events and more likely to believe things that are not true. Now a new poll of Fox viewers versus those who watch everything else confirms that it still the case. More than 2/3 of Fox viewers, for example, say they support trump and aren't are not worried about future Russian election interference, whereas only about a third of viewers of all other news sources agree.

Rupert Murdoch has created a massive propaganda vehicle here in the United States that has actually altered the course and fate of our country, much as he did in the UK and Australia. Former Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd called him and his media empire "a cancer upon Australian democracy." That cancer has metastasized around the world.

Which raises the question, "How, in an open democracy, can the people protect themselves from a massive, billionaire funded 24/7 propaganda operation?"

But how do we stop it when its in almost all mainstream media and the opposing side is censored? I am so dismayed to see the Democratic Party sell us out to Big Pharma with forced liability free and not safety tested vaccinations, now at 72 shots. We have seen a worldwide push and state by state fight over this going on and the only people stopping it are mostly Republicans. This has made me realize why people voted for Trump. It was after religious and philisophical objections to vaccinations were eliminated by Pharma's guy in CA, Sen Richard Pan. Parents with vaccine damaged kids are not about to see it happen all over again to another child. I'm the same age as you and I remember getting measles as a kid and it was no big deal. Not the hysteria like today that's turning people against one another and making people loath the Democratic party. This is against our basic human rights under the Nuremberg Code against forced medical experimentation, now there is a new bill in Congress https://www.congress.gov/bill/116th-congress/house-bill/2527/text?q=%7B%22search%22%3A%5B%22vaccinations%22%5D%7D&r=8&s=2&fbclid=IwAR0ttrsxdKmLW5SZR7ByBnhb4_j4MhR8BrvMEiFo7LkJn31EcFDNbr2bI_8 with 17 Democratic sponsors to make vaccinations mandatory for all children! I am so appalled by this. When you look at the evidence they don't want you to see, like the film Vaxxed from just one wistleblower from Merck, its terrible. Trump is the only politician who has linked vaccines to autism before he became president, but no Democrat, including Bernie will say anything about this. Meanwhile more and more kids are damaged for life or die after they get 10 shots at once before they're 6 months old. We need a 3rd party, or something. Please cover this issue. The CDC has patents on vaccines and over 200 new ones waiting for us all. The millenial generation has 54% of people with chronic illness, autism or autoimmune disease. I have been a Democrat all my life for the most part up until now, but this issue is why Trump will win, because after your kid is made into a vegetable or dies, you really can't support the party who thinks thats ok.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Right through the worst of the Bush years and into the present, Thom Hartmann has been one of the very few voices constantly willing to tell the truth. Rank him up there with Jon Stewart, Bill Moyers, and Paul Krugman for having the sheer persistent courage of his convictions."
Bill McKibben, author of Eaarth
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann is a literary descendent of Ben Franklin and Tom Paine. His unflinching observations and deep passion inspire us to explore contemporary culture, politics, and economics; challenge us to face the facts of the societies we are creating; and empower us to demand a better world for our children and grandchildren."
John Perkins, author of the New York Times bestselling book Confessions of an Economic Hit Man
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann is a creative thinker and committed small-d democrat. He has dealt with a wide range of topics throughout his life, and this book provides an excellent cross section. The Thom Hartmann Reader will make people both angry and motivated to act."
Dean Baker, economist and author of Plunder and Blunder, False Profits, and Taking Economics Seriously
