The narrative has been set. If you disagree with the universally accepted narrative, you're now a propagandist working for the Russian government. Report on things that reflect negatively on America? You should be labeled a "fake news" site or better yet shut down entirely.
This is what mainstream news outlets would like you to believe, and if you're not careful, they might just sway you. Fortunately, we still have a counter voice and today I'm going to crush this idea is short order.
There are no doubt dishonest players in the alternative news business. Anytime you have an industry that relies on clicks to fund it's operation you're going to get misleading or outright untrue headlines. But that doesn't mean Anti-war.com or TheFreeThoughtProject.com are Russian shills.
If anyone in media today is spewing propaganda it's the very news outlets doing the saber rattling. Networks like CNN, MSNBC, and Fox NEWS all promote a slanted and primarily politically driven agenda. How about we start by cleaning up the largest and most influential news outlets on earth and then move to cleaning up the riffraff on the internet.
