45. Meme-jacking by the Breitbarts of the world ..

Given that the right dominates talk radio and cable news .. I guess we shouldn't be surprised when they serve as an echo chamber for the far right blogs ie., Breibart, Alex Jones...

Good job deconstructing and analyzing this, guillaumeb.

On The Media has an episode this weekend that deals with many of these same issues:

Shows up! Trump v. Putin, the German far-Right's media strategy, and a brand new BNCH for migration.


Here's one segment...
Breaking News Consumer's Handbook: Migration Edition (Abroad)

Jul 29, 2016

Migration and refugees have been in the news a lot in the last two years; a deeper understanding of migration and refugees, unfortunately, has not. From misleading language to distorted facts to the abuse of the very term "breaking news" (when in fact emigration, particularly into Europe, tends to remain constant) -- coverage of refugees and migration is all too often predictably poor.

Brooke talks with Heaven Crawley, Coventry University's International Migration Chair, about mass migration myths and how to identify them when they crop up in the news. The result is Part One of our Breaking News Consumer's Handbook: Migration Edition.

The transcript will be available Monday but you can listen at the link.
