Obama Calls Alternative Media “Domestic Propagandists”

obama-angryBy Kurt Nimmo

The war on alternative media intensified today when Obama blamed talk radio and other “domestic propagandists” for the rise of “fake news.”

“If fake news that’s being released by some foreign government is almost identical to reports that are being issued through partisan news venues, then it’s not surprising that that foreign propaganda will have a greater effect,” Obama said. “It doesn’t seem that farfetched compared to some of the other stuff folks are hearing from domestic propagandists.”

“To the extent that our political dialogue is such that everything is under suspicion, everybody’s corrupt and everybody is doing things for partisan reasons and all of our institutions are, you know full of malevolent actors and if that’s the story that is being put out there, then when a foreign government introduces that same argument, the facts are made up, voters who have been listening to that stuff for years, who have been getting that stuff every day from talk radio or other venues, they’re going to believe it.”

In other words, if the alternative media investigates and posts a story about the government and this is picked up by Russian state media, then it is a categorical lie.
