Did the election of Trump mobilize the Left and Youth like they haven't been mobilized in decades
imo, I don't think so, what has changed is that the elite and big financial backers of the left are now trying to buy votes and elections. They use all of the tricks of Madison Avenue and its very effective marketing and sales techniques.
For example, tell a lie often enough and it becomes a fact. Literally, buy the MSM and you control the voters. Using the Internet and Social Media to propagate the biased messaging has been very successful. So has the suppression, and ignoring anything not favorable to their side.
The mobilization that you talk of is just the Information Technology that spreads the word instantly. The new generation doesn't have face to face, they have facebook. A personal one to one in a physical setting is much different than having all your friends and acquaintances in one virtual room is a different social dynamic. It has more peer pressure, so biased information is easier to propagate.
Del if u wish
Just because I disagree, I would never just delete out of spite....I am personally am not a fan of Alt Right media like Rush and Sean...But I also believe we all have the right to speak our mind in a public forum..........
Why do you disagree? and what do you disagree about? I didn't mention Rush or Sean. Not really a fan of either. Or Bill O'Reilly. But the ones on the left are much much worse.
I would like to think that many realize that Trump comes into the presidency ill-prepared, but I think many others will push the alternative facts he has been spewing and try and silence any opposition. I'm glad that those who oppose Trump's ideas have let their feelings be known, but I think Americans will have to wait and see if Trump makes a colossal blunder from which he cannot recover.
Worked in media on both the print and broadcast side, and most of the journalists I know truly practice objectivity and being non-biased...yes, they may have personal views (shucks we all do) but they don't let it cloud their reporting.....and here in North Carolina the big money donors who have tried to suppress various voting groups have come from the RIght....I.e. the Koch Brothers......
Marc - I am sorry but you must have worked during the Walter Cronkite error because that is not true now. I live in California how does that compare with NC? NO one reports the News since Cable News TV was created. It is editorial infused news.
Nope in North Carolina the reporters I know are objective....I was trained in the 80's if that is what you mean by Walter Cronkite era......and there is very little editorials in the news here.....
That is strange because these are networks like NBC, I am talking about not local news.
