Filmmaker Jen Senko noticed a disturbing phenomenon. Her father, Frank, was a goofy, fun, non-political dad who treated people with respect when she was a child. However, when she was older, she noticed her father would rant about “Feminazis,” listen to Rush Limbaugh and watch Fox News. He became the family pest, forcing one-sided discussions of conservative politics and becoming enraged and unreachable after watching Fox News. Senko investigates the reasons for this transformation in her stirring new documentary, “The Brainwashing of My Dad.” The documentary, co-narrated by Senko and co-producer Matthew Modine, traces the history of the insidious ways the conservatives gained control of the media and how the Republican Noise Machine sustained such wide influence and impact, even as Fox News propagates lies, by bleeding false stories. Senko spoke with Salon about “The Brainwashing of My Dad.” You noticed this transformation with your father. The Skype folks were from word of mouth.
Fox News “brainwashed” so many dads: “People are being bamboozled on a massive scale”
Understanding The History And Purpose Of Fox News
You’d think a thing like FOX couldn’t happen in the United States. Although they’re free to be crazy and free to support the Republican Party, you’d think Americans would be too smart to fall for the made-up outrages, dishonest reporting and relentless appeal to our meaner nature. Unfortunately, many Americans are not as smart as we used to assume: a huge swath of Americans (especially elderly white Southerners) believe FOX is just another news media outlet. What is FOX? Pensitore Review pulled no punches in answering that question back in 2009. FOX News is indisputably the most popular cable news channel. Whew! Nixon White House aide Roger Ailes in the 1970’s created fake news stories that favored President Nixon. FOX is a “relentless agenda-driven 24 hour news opinion propaganda delivery system” ~Jon Stewart“They’re a Republican brand. Fox changes words, meanings, facts, and even actual news footage. The more you watch FOX, the less you know.
As if the world needed further proof that people fail to notice what they are deliberately trying not to see, Fox News’ Kirsten Powers appeared on The O’Reilly Factor Monday evening and denied that Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton has faced any sexism in this election to date. Former Secretary of State Clinton, Powers argued, “has been treated pretty well this time around,” but “it makes sense that they would try to say that she’s being treated with sexist treatment” in order to encourage female voters to come out to the polls. Guest host Eric Bolling played Powers a clip of Professor Michael Eric Dyson on MSNBC claimingg that “as a woman, and as a female leading candidate, the sexism to which she has been subject[ed] is pretty astonishing for our lack of remark upon it.” She replied that while Clinton “did face a lot of sexism in 2008,” Powers has not, herself seen anything “as overt as what we saw in 2008. “Who is being sexist toward her?”
Fox News analyst denies existence of “sexist treatment” of Hillary Clinton, claims her campaign is lying “to energize the female base”

There’s a mild-mannered warrior in the front lines of the propaganda wars. Kylie Peters, a librarian in the Chicago area, has been concerned about the rise of so-called “fake news”: deliberately false stories made to appear factual, designed to sway public opinion. “Librarians are the original search engine,” said Peters, who works at Geneva Public Library in suburban Chicago. A recent analysis showed that fake or hoax stories got more reader engagement on Facebook than real news stories during the last three months of the election. “People think they don’t need libraries because of Google. Here are her tips for helping your children learn how to distinguish facts from fiction or propaganda online: “Your first stop when you visit an unfamiliar website should be the ‘about’ page. “Scroll to the very bottom of the page and look at who owns the copyright. “Does the website cite its sources? “Look at graphic design.

Aisha Sultan: Teaching children how to spot real news from fake news | Aisha Sultan
Posted by Bill Ferriter on Sunday, 11/20/2016 One of the most interesting conversations currently taking place around Donald Trump's surprise victory in our Presidential election has been the role that fake news peddled and promoted in Facebook news streams may have played in swaying voters. Mark Zuckerberg -- Facebook's charismatic founder -- has called the notion that fake news is a problem on his site "a pretty crazy idea" and argued that a clear process is in place that allows users to flag suspicious or hateful content for further review. But that position was openly challenged over and over again all week long. Buzzfeed, a popular online source covering digital media and technology, opened the criticism by publishing the frightening results of an analysis of the election stories generating the most engagement -- think likes, shares and comments -- on Facebook in the final three months of the election. Turns out, the process isn't consistent, thorough or reliable. It's not pretty:
What Are You Doing to Teach Students to Spot Fake News Stories? | CTQ #CTQCollab
The rise and proliferation of fake news stories has been much discussed lately. Some claim the wild and reckless distribution of baseless stories about Hillary Clinton swung the election to her opponent. There may be some truth in that. What has most alarmed people about fake news stories is their presence on social media. Facebook has gotten the lion’s share of grief over this phenomenon. I have personally seen FB postings that contain links to the stupidest and most outrageous stories imaginable. Fake news stories do not lure the non-educated exclusively. It takes some cleverness to give absurdity the veneer of intellectual respectability. Although Facebook and other social media sites may start doing more to counter the spread of fake news stories, you must take measures to protect yourself against them. False news stories always contain a few flaws that make them easy to spot. First, those who write and spread such nonsense tend to be ignorant of proportionality. Let's face it.

Its population of 268,767 (Aug. 2014 census) consists of a mix of Kanak people (the original inhabitants of New Caledonia), people of European descent (Caldoches and Metropolitan French), Polynesian people (mostly Wallisians), and Southeast Asian people, as well as a few people of Pied-Noir and Maghreban descent. The capital of the territory is Nouméa. History The earliest traces of human presence in New Caledonia date back to the Lapita period. The Lapita were highly skilled navigators and agriculturists with influence over a large area of the Pacific.
