Drama Propaganda for Ratings ~ Local TV Goes to Islamville
Nothing like the hint of a Muslim 'terrorist training camp' right in your backyard to boost ratings in February sweeps month.
Nashville's WTVF uses a year old discredited video called Homegrown Jihad that mentioned a Dover TN trailer park out in the sticks where 'radicals' are supposedly preparing for terrorist attacks in the homeland.
The 'brave' reporter from Channel 5 explores the Muslim community that has been there since the early 80's from a helicopter and from inside the local sherriff's patrol car. And what did he find? Well, nothing. But he was able to stir up some of the media brainwashed Islamophobes who see a terrorist behind every rock, reinforce the idea that they are the enemy who need to be rounded up and sent back to where they came from and of course cheer on the 'war on terror.'
It's bad enough that the national media is inundating us daily with the psyops of war but now the local news plays to the lowest common denominator of fear and hate through their 'investigative' reporting. All for ratings, all for the almighty dollar. I'm sure the pentagon and the CIA appreciate it.
Channel 5 should stick to weather forecasting. At least occasionally they get that right.
