Cable news channels use their “pundits” to establish a conspiracy, and then report on the conspiracy in their news section by replaying those pundits as proof for the validity of the conspiracy. Then politicians will quote these news segments, and the news reports them again.
You are believe that Dore is sincere, but his sincere belief just happens to match the agenda of the CCP. I just have more faith in his intelligence.
I think the disillusionment we are seeing with American institutions (and we see it a lot, on a lot of threads, from people of different perspectives), is sincere and justified. The behaviour of cable news channels that you describe applies to Russiagate as well (although that conspiracy got some help in being established, by Steele and by Trump associates (e.g. Flynn) and by Russia (e.g. IRA).
I don’t think anyone will argue that the American government doesn’t lie to their people or the world, regardless of Dems or GOP.
But I’m still pretty firm in the opinion that the US choosing not to intervene in Ukraine or Taiwan is not in the best interests of anyone, except the fortunate elites who are in charge of Russia and China.
He has fundamentally anti-war beliefs, which he has been consistent in promoting. You’re really saying here that anyone with such views is necessarily transmitting CCP propaganda or stupid, or at least that they should shut up about it and not do something like go on cable TV and share their views.
I didn’t think propaganda is a word that would need to be defined in conversations.
I think if you present a fact to influence your audience to agree with you, it isn’t propaganda. It’s when you repeatedly present a lie in ways designed to deceive your audience to believe it as true, that’s when it’s a propaganda.
This is what Jimmy Dore said in that clip, that Russians and the Chinese aren’t the enemies and that the US is provoking wars. So, I’m just clarifying what you believe about what he said, because I don’t believe that you believe this.
Not sure! No one could say that about Germany, but there is such a line of argument about Japan that pops up sometimes. As economic far-leftists, it would be likely that they’d see it within a capitalist/colonialist framework.
