“This is extremely dangerous to our democracy” — this is what western propaganda looks like

This video perfectly points out the extreme irony and hypocrisy of mainstream media, the seed that has helped grow today’s cult of group-thinking “news” watchers, reflexively regurgitating platitudes, smug in their presumed “informed”-ness but ultimately incapable of individual and critical thought.
