Do you know what #TheFairnessDoctrine is?

It required licensed broadcasters be "Fair and Balanced."

It was repealed in 1987, opening the way for Roger Ailes (media consultant for Nixon/Reagan) to calculatedly start Fox News.

Do you know why that matters?

"FoxNews" is an "entertainment company"...and as such, whatever it broadcasts, falls under the banner of "entertainment" and could be used as defense if challenged, as proven in the Tucker Carlson case.

Please retweet
"News" was used on purpose in naming Fox News. It gave the veneer of being a news agency. It even used "fair and balanced" as per the repealed #FairnessDoctrine, to give it a sense of just that...and thus the propaganda began.

Please retweet
Fox News eventually dropped the "fair and balanced" tag, but their base was already hooked.

Their trailblazing has given rise to copycats that see the money in propaganda.

Let's try to change that.

Let's try to get
#ReinstateFairnessDoctrine trending.

Thank you 🙏

Just got through this Michael Moore vid, and he's right on point.

The chatter has been around for four years! *If Drumpf doesn't win, "they're" going to make sure he's installed, because the Ds "rigged the election to win."*🤦‍♀️


Right after he took office, Drumpf started campaigning again! He went for they adoration, but THAT'S what he was telling them! That the Dems were already planning on stealing the election! And they believed him!

They believed him, he made them feel special by going to see them. Never mind he had his own agenda. They couldn't see that. He was a "celebrity" and then a man in the WH, and he came to SEE THEM!

They were special. That's what he told them. They believed him...
