    I hope this video of journalist all over the nation parroting the same lines about the dangers of getting your news on social media gives pause, and the nauseating feeling it gave me.

    Enjoy!

    Mr Shmo, you have to remove the v= from the string to make it work.

    Thank you, that never seems to stick in my mind, and the site FAQ isn't any help for what the "movie id" typically is.

    Cheers, and if you look at the clip now I edited in a title which you do simply by putting a space after youtube in the first pair of square brackets and typing in your title there. The format automatically inserts the colon for you.

    Usually I forget too. I then go searching for a post and reply to get a look at the proper formatting. 😀

    Its not just Fox doing the parroting, so your addended title is a little misleading? Unless it was your goal to get Fox news enemies to unsuspectingly take a look in the mirror?

    I only have one question, is this extremely dangerous to our democracy?

    Yes, but we don't have a democracy, it was a trick question.

    Is this extremely dangerous to our Republic?

    For democracy to work.
    1. The electorate need to exercise their right to vote.
    2. The electorate need to be well informed.

    Not just in America but both of these are under attack world-wide.

    I think your missing the point. In order for the masses to be predictable and readily socially engineered the electorate need to be "well informed" by the traditional mainstream media. This fact should be clear to you from the video, and the 2016 election. Verbatim phrases repeated over and over, across independent corporations, as if divined by a Bureau of Adjustments. Unfortunately, the unpredictability of the electorate is the real threat to "democracy".

    It is a democracy though, isn’t it?
    Yes, yes it is.

    Stop peddling this spoon-fed rubbish. A republic can be a democracy. And that is what the US is.

    Agreed. Moreover, continuous vigilance is required to maintain a well-informed public.
