A debate.

Now, a debate is sincerely REAL 'infotainment.'

I mean, for real here.

Murdoch classifies his media circus as 'infotainment.'  We have heard it over and over again as if they 'own' the word.


Infotainment is when a media event occurs regarding the expansion of fact and a debate would be a good example of what "Infotainment' is all about.

Infotainment (click title to entry - thank you)  is "information-based media content or programming that also includes entertainment content in an effort to enhance popularity with audiences and consumers."

Merriam-Webster rules out the inclusion of 'radio' as a method of infotainment.  So according to Merriam-Webster there has to be a visual component.

 a television program (click here) that presents information (as news) in a manner intended to be entertaining

EXPANDING POPULARITY should not based in 'half-truths' and 'lies.'

Propaganda  (click here) is a form of communication that is aimed at influencing the attitude of a community toward some cause or position.

According to Merriam-Webster


noun \ˌprä-pə-ˈgan-də, ˌprō-\

Definition of PROPAGANDA

1 capitalized : a congregation of the Roman curia having jurisdiction over missionary territories and related institutions
2 : the spreading of ideas, information, or rumor for the purpose of helping or injuring an institution, a cause, or a person
AKA as Influence Peddling.  It is a form of racketerring.

Quack, Quack, Quack

The Murdoch Media Circus is lying AGAIN.

Let's have a debate. Mr. Duck the Quack vs. the IPCC.

...Counter-intuitive but true, (click title to entry - thank you) say scientists: a string of freezing European winters scattered over the last decade has been driven in large part by global warming.
The culprit, according to a new study, is the Arctic's receding surface ice, which at current rates of decline could to disappear entirely during summer months by century's end.
The mechanism uncovered triples the chances that future winters in Europe and north Asia will be similarly inclement, the study reports....

The man is simply a liar seeking money for his words.  It is really a darn shame.  Give 'em a comb.  I mean he can't even afford a barber.

We can start with the fact that WEATHER is not CLIMATE, yet this well paid 'Quack' is willing to mix the two in one sentence and  call the government corrupt all at the same time.

The FCC needs to penalize liars and those that are obviously INCOMPETENT.
