Kurt Eichenwald's XLNT Rant: "Fox Is A Propaganda Network Aiding And Abetting The Russians"

Kurt Eichenwald Goes On Righteous Rant Against Fox News Propaganda

..............


"We're talking about a situation seems like nobody understands what happened --certainly not Fox News. We had, we were subject to an act of war. This was not some little computer problem. This act of war has been done by Russia against England, the Netherlands, it has been done against Italy, it has been done against France.

"The entire purpose, American intelligence agencies know, is to drive a wedge and break apart the western alliances. Yes, it would be nice to talk jobs. We are in a war. And the problem with the Trump administration and the propaganda Fox News, they look at it only through the prism of what does it mean for Trump, what does it mean for the Republican party.

"I truthfully don't care what it means for Trump. I believe we as a nation need to be focused on what do we do about the enemy, what do we do to preserve American democracy. Unfortunately you have the fact that Fox is a propaganda network, which functions off the idea of breaking people up into teams, so they're aiding and abetting the enemy. They're aiding and abetting those people we are currently at war with -- the Russians.

"In order to play for their team, to make it GOP versus Democrats. It's not. It is the United States of America versus people who are a country trying to destroy our democracy, break up the western alliance, and in the process Fox News is saying, 'Don't worry about the Russians, don't worry about people trying to attack democracy, let's attack instead the intelligence agencies giving us these conclusions, let's pretend the Democrats are involved, and let's return to tax cuts.'

"It's obscene. It is propaganda, and it has to stop. The Republican party -- which unfortunately Jennifer Rubin, conservative, wrote this morning, is in opposition to reality. The Republican party has to take over and decide whether or not they're going to allow the propaganda to drive democracy, or side with America and help fight this enemy."

2. Tucker Carlson's opening EVERY NIGHT - He says Trump was "working" w/Russia and that's okay!

He recites the same lines - that there is no proof of collusion, Trump did nothing illegal, isn't Trump and co meeting with the Russians in fact a sign of Trump's great genius that he decided to "work" with the Russians?!

It is the most surreal shit imaginable -- and these are the people who would have been screaming at the top of their lungs if (prior to Trump) any incident had occurred with Russia. Neocons like Tucker (who now disguises himself as a Trumper "rich guy for the working man" -- yeeaaaah, right) would have been drooling at the thought of war/sanctions etc. But now Tucker serves the party/Fox by acting like Trump colluding by accepting the ill-gotten Russian hacked info is just a sign of his genius. "And what's so bad about Russia anyway?" wonders Tucker -- the guy who would have likely been the first to send boys over to Vietnam, Korea,etc and assist McCarthy in the good old days because loyalty is so important and all that...except when Trump is doing the betraying of the nation.

These people have lost their minds. I honestly don't know how Trump even hovers in the 30s approval-wise, even though that is terrible for a new president. I think a lot of people are just shocked and can't even process it.
