Controlling the information

Dictators control by controlling the information - this NBC news article published in 2011 is about classical dictators traits but in the first few paragraphs you might realize that somebody in a big house with columns in the DC area might have realized this could be useful for personal gain (because he has always done this narrative control) and got some really fucking dumb ideas in his head.

Or an enigmatic leader from another country knows this also and hatches a plan using a wannabe dictator, freak.

Either way by controlling the information they are controlling the narrative!

How Dictators Keep Control
By Eric Niiler
Discovery Channel
Images of North Korean women (and some men) weeping inconsolably at news of the death of strongman Kim Jong-Il was perhaps not surprising in a country where obedience is expected and much of the society, experts say, followed their "Dear Leader" because it has been in their collective best interest to do so.

But how do dictators like Kim -- or Saddam Hussein, or Hitler or Stalin for that matter -- maintain power over their people?

Psychologists and sociologists who study terrorism say dictators are able to spread fear among their people, and place themselves as their only salvation. Manufacturing an external threat, like Jews to Hitler's Germany, or the entire West for Kim, help keep the society off balance and collectively paranoid as well. ***

Good on Shep Smith

“Executives at the network leaned on him to stay, but to no avail. On Friday afternoon he announced his departure on the air, then exited the building immediately, clearly emotional about saying goodbye to his television home of twenty years.

Smith was a Fox News original. He didn't change over the years -- the network changed around him.”

** when Fox first aired in the 90s I watched for a few months and then I told my now ex “this is NOT fair and balanced” and I never watched it again.

Smith was the only believable person on air at the time - too much make up or not - he still did what was right ...in the beginning, for 20 years, and yesterday!!

Good on you Shep Smith!
Congratulations!
Live long and prosper.

Fuck FOX news !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

DON'T Speak or type that name

Someone else said it here...I wholeheartedly agree!

We see that name too much-you know which one I’m talking about. How about we stop using that name? ...call it anything else - we all know who we are talking about. In fact, use the worst, vile, metaphor for it — always!!
Let’s not have that word appear on DU anymore! Please.
