Let that one sink in for a bit.
Their leader told them it's OK to do that.

People often follow leaders.

There's a cute fable that ends with this moral, after all the monkeys drown: 'Life tends to be pretty tough, but with bad leadership it's just about impossible!'

Local News Anchors Are Being Forced to Deliver Pro-Trump Propaganda

Sinclair Broadcast Group. No surprise. Whell would approve.

Does anyone remember the days of real journalism in local newspapers? Cranks like Whell were limited to rants in “Letters to the Editor”, not moronic right wing radio and national Faux “News” TV spreading hate.

We've already had that happening here on the ABC affiliate.

iHeartMedia files for bankruptcy. A hopeful sign for truth. Turns out distributing far right hate to old white males isn’t profitable after all. Limblow, InsHannity and Blech may have to find some other way to spew their bile.

Fox News announced it's new slogan "Real news. Real honest opinion." And this happens in the same week that Seth Rich's parents sue Fox News for their fake story about their son's murder.

So, "Excrement in Fraudcasting" isn't that profitable? What does the guy with the Golden Shower microphone have to say about this?

Fox “News” analyst blasts network as 'propaganda machine' while announcing departure

Hey Whell! Some real news about your fave fake “news” outlet.

http://money.cnn.com/2018/03/20/medi...ine/index.html

“Four decades ago, I took an oath as a newly commissioned officer. I swore to 'support and defend the Constitution,' and that oath did not expire when I took off my uniform," Peters wrote in the letter sent to a handful of colleagues. "Today, I feel that Fox News is assaulting our constitutional order and the rule of law, while fostering corrosive and unjustified paranoia among viewers. Over my decade with Fox, I long was proud of the association. Now I am ashamed."
