I think it's time to go to work on the fake right wing media.

The damage that the likes of Limbaugh, Hannity, and others in the right wing media have done to this nation
is incredible.
I think it's time to make their lives miserable.

How can we do it?

2. I'm not sure of a plan, but the right way is always through the advertisers.

Threatening the advertisers' businesses.

15. That may work a little on Fox News but

Limbaugh, I believe, is paid for by right wing think tanks, etc.
There is no way that show turns a profit on gold coins and
other crap that gets advertised.

3. The 1st amendment and libel laws make doing anything about fox

and the rest of the rightwing media machine nearly impossible.

7. those don't limit much.

first amendment limits government action, but there are plenty of things that might help that don't involve the government shutting them down.

libel laws don't only deter us if we were to damage them through lies.

plenty of things we might do that help that don't involve lies. and don't directly damage them, either, for that matter.


the real problem is that we need a better organization of rational, reasonable people that can be organized and determined to keep our government and society reasonable and rational -- to compete with the organization the right-wing hase that's determined to keep it unreasonable and irrational.

6. Going after advertisers was mentioned, that's 1 thing

Some others:

Let's get them known and labeled as purveyors of fake news and conspiracy theories.
If you see something forwarded on another site, just don't let it sit there, report it, make it known it's fake news
Two letters "B and S". These fake news and Republican conspiracy theorists are counting on us to just walk away, they want people to be silent in the face of the nonsense. Never stop calling it all BS.

8. I think Trump might be doing it for us. The pressers won't go well. I'd say the press needs

to hammer him with tough questions no matter what. Maybe even agree to try and follow up each other if they can. If the correspondent before you asked a tough and more important question than what you had planned, keep on it!

If they boot all the free media out and it's only FOX "News", "Frightfart" and other white-wing idiots left, it will stink to high heaven. The bubble heads will think it's utopia at first. Bubbleland for everyone! But that will expose them for what they are and drive more people away.

No doubt he was in on the collusion.
