It's all Nazi propaganda tactics mixed with Russian misinformation/disinformation. "Fake news"? Used to be called Lügenpresse (lying press or press of lies) in Germany.

I'm amazed he is taking hydroxychloroquine. It's dangerous for people with heart problems! What if it killed him? I kind of wonder if he is actually even taking it, given his propensity to lie all the time. Maybe he just says he's taking it but isn't really doing so. Who knows with him.

So I figure he's either lying about it (maybe to deflect from other things like the IG firing); pushing an old take to prove he's not wrong about the drug; might actually have Corona and isn't admitting it (would that even be possible); or, has some business interest/stock ownership in a drug company manufacturing it.

Fox News in trouble for not being pro-Trump enough:

If you're not for him, you're against him. If you don't agree with everything he says and does, you are a traitor.

This was always his plan in the first place.

Winning the election was an unanticipated benefit to his ultimate goal of creating a media network that continues to brainwash and scam a segment of the country.

I wonder if this is a smart move for Trump. He hasn’t acquired OAN yet and has been attacking FOX News a lot more. FOX News is super important to Trump and if he forces them to turn on him before the election and before he acquires OAN he would be forced to use Twitter as his only pulpit. That can’t help him.

Doubt Fox actually turns on Trump. They're right wing and he's a means to their end. Unless they get him out and decide to just use the next 4 years attacking Biden. Maybe there are more ratings and advertising dollars being on the losing side and pushing for a Biden impeachment as soon as he's in office. But that would also assume Trump loses and ya know, leaves office.

The OAN thing is mostly for leverage at this point, I think. "Cover me well and fall in line, Fox, or I'll go to these OAN quacks instead of you."

If Trump loses the election and actually leaves office, I am pretty sold that he would purchase OAN and start his own network that competes with FOX. I could see FOX as the RINO (Moderate) station and Trump TV controlling the evangelical rural non college educated white crowd.

I was going to post in the other thread talking about how accurate the Covid-19 stats were. I decided to do a little web research and came to the conclusion that there is a ton of web sites saying the opposite of each other. You think the numbers are low? I can find you plenty of web sites that will say the numbers are being intentionally kept low. You think the numbers are high? I can find you plenty of web sites that will say the numbers have been inflated and are lower than reported. Everybody posting comments is labeled a Russian, Chinese or a paid troll. Some are I’m sure. The sheer amount of information/disinformation out there is unbelievable. I think the main goal is to get people to not trust anything.
