“That’s what the propagandists know… If the same thing is said over and over again, regardless of how untrue it is, it ultimately sinks in,” says Sharyl Attkisson.
A five-time Emmy Award-winning journalist, Attkisson never imagined she would see her profession become plagued by the bias and censorship she now sees in media today. How did things get to this point?
Tonight, on American Thought Leaders we discuss the proliferation of third-party fact-checkers, how big tech is controlling online discourse, and what Sharyl Attkisson expects will happen if Trump launches his own social media platform.
Attkisson is the author of “Slanted: How the News Media Taught Us to Love Censorship and Hate Journalism” and the host of the show, Full Measure with Sharyl Attkisson.
