Our own government is the biggest propaganda purveyor on the globe. U.S. news outlets used to fact check the government. Now, they are the mouthpiece of the propagandists.Also, it's not just the things the news outlets say - it's what they don't report that is also problematic. We are turning into China at an alarmingly fast pace.
