Fake news is the other virus that’s getting worse infiltrating not just white GOP but local ethnic media that feeds immigrant communities. Just lectured my mom for an hour clearing up the lies she’s hearing. It is everywhere.
She believes me but it’s scary—she’s apolitical; she’s barely tuned in; and to hear her recite some of this stuff is like she’s being lured by a cult. I really don’t know how we are going to beat back fake news.
The Right has their hands everywhere stirring up Cold War communist fears in immigrant communities. We need to rally and get a serious ground game to stop this, specifically for Georgia.
Tv ads won’t do it; print ads won’t do it; it has to be trusted locals going door to door and community centers; friends, relatives doing serious convos.
I also wonder if the pandemic is making fake news more virulent. Boomers,especially, since they are more isolated so they look at socia media and YouTube channels all day
