Here’s a great article by Glenn Greenwald – who’s hardly a right-winger – on how the lies about tye January 6 riot were manufactured and spread.
I don’t watch or read corporate media so this was eye-opening to me. I now understand how it happened that people believed the ludicrous fire extinguisher story and the zip tie story, and the armed insurrection story, and so on.
What I don’t get is why people still believe these sources. Yes, they tell you what you want to hear but is that adequate price for being constantly duped? How much is enough? Where is the self-respect?
