Take a guess how russian propaganda-outlet RT framed the democratic debate.

https://www.rt.com/usa/462777-democratic-debates-circular-firing-squad/

The hook of the article? Not what was being said by the democratic candidates. The hook is what Trump and Lindsey Graham twittered about the debate. Because political drama is way more important than political ideas!

The rest of the article is filler and none-informative one-word summaries of what was being said. No quotes, no details, because it's hard to demonize someone if you let them speak.

Oh, and RT declared Tulsi Gabbard (their darling) the winner of the debate because people googled who the f**k she was.

2. " Because political drama is way more important than political ideas! "

LIke the Faux noise mantra. People don't want to read and understand the news, they want to think they have a sense of what the news is..
As Rodger Ailes said back in the Nixon era:
"Today television news is watched more often than people read newspapers, than people listen to the radio.The reason? People are lazy. With television you just sit—watch—listen. The thinking is done for you."
