Updated now with blogs + pods. Amazeballs that these fringe sites on the right set the nation's agenda. Image
Interesting that Fox Business is more reliable than regular Fox and CNN online is more reliable than CNN tv.
oh and it's: 1) Fox Business, 2) Fox online, 3) Fox tv.
I suspect this is because Fox tv has so much opinion programing, but idk.
Also, you can learn more here, including a description of their methodology (it's not my work/chart): adfontesmedia.com
And their website does not seem to be working well right now. This is what they posted on fb about their method: "To arrive at these ratings, we have teams of trained analysts that are balanced with right, left, and center political views..."
"They apply a content analysis methodology to rate numerous factors of reliability and bias. See our methodology and white paper here. No one agrees with all the placements on the Media Bias Chart because it doesn’t reflect any one person’s opinion and personal sample..."
"It reflects the composite judgment of multiple diverse, trained analysts over a 20,000-article and episode sample."
Honestly, it seems y'all have some concerns. Should I delete this thread or are you enjoying debating it?
Quick poll.

This, + 4 new deaths in our county reported today.

It's an anti-democratic strategy designed to prevent democratic deliberation. It's communication warfare, using communication as a weapon.
We are all fighting the infowars; the infowars are everywhere.

Insane because covid cases are spiking in our county, our hospitals are full, and 14 new deaths were reported this week? So, yes 100k people in close contact yelling & breathing on each other does seem insane. 😱
No worries, I'll just keep teaching my classes outside in the 90+ heat.
Third student has emailed with covid. I only have 45 students. Our semester started a week ago. 😳

are "groupthink" and "faction" equivalent opposites? If not, then what would you suggest to pair with groupthink? (i'm trying to write a sentence that says propaganda leads to both groupthink and <whatever the chaos of never finding common ground is called>)
Maybe "alienation"? As an analytic term, it sort of works as the equivalent opposite, but it's maybe less intuitive than "faction"?
I'm reading all of your suggestions with great interest and thinking them over. Thank you! Keep them coming! 🥰

I'm not sure where Texas ladies are supposed to report our ovulation cycles every month? Anyone got a link?
It'd be a shame if someone seo'd their websites to push the reporting link down the google results.
40 days for life used to protest/pray outside of our local Planned Parenthood daily. Once they finally got PP shut down they moved into the property, took down the gates, and parked a van in front that says, "pray to end abortion." They occupied the building like conquers. 😳

If you want to understand this, think of the "agenda setting wars." Republicans since the 70s have worried the media had too much power to set the nation's agenda (telling us what to think about). They built an alternate agenda setting information system: pewrsr.ch/2WzHZjc
Republicans have sought to counter the "manufacture of consent" model of propaganda with the "manufacture of dissent" model of propaganda. It's worked. theconversation.com/we-are-all-pro…
And so they "flood the zone" (a Russian strategy that relies on creating cynicism and makes people give up on knowing facts altogether, see @peterpomeranzev on this), but they also turn average Republicans into infowarriors to do it. We're all fighting the propaganda wars.
