3. All they needed was to insert a brain-fart into the minds who wished it true

People love a convenient lie

4. This.

"If there’s a better example of Noam Chomsky’s contention that the media uses propaganda — propaganda with a specific end in mind — to shift reality, and then doesn’t undo the damage they’ve done when they’re caught, I can’t think of one.

Even the Democratic National Committee — “neutral” in the Democratic primary — joined the fray, adding its voice to the major-media chorus singing Bernie Sanders’ swan song.

Barbara Boxer — who claimed she feared for her safety in Nevada — was subsequently shown in a video contemptuously and facetiously blowing kisses to the crowd as she was calmly escorted from the stage by the very same police officers who’d been in the room the whole time and not observed any violence whatsoever."

6. Kuwaiti incubator baby deaths, Reichstag's fire,

and many other examples like you said.

This one was a propaganda putsch on the same lines

The retraction will be put in the classified or local section of the news if ever.

8. The sad part is how normally rational people

 

Cannot recognize how the filthy cheating from the Clinton camp is only alienating ethical Democrats and solidifying the negative view of independents.

9. The damage is done however. There are way too many who will forever believe the propaganda

Seeing it here first hand, despite hard proof that there was no violence, many HRC supporters will never admit that
