It worked for the Nazi's quite well.
Not to belabor the obvious, but the Mainstream Media, led by Faux, is simply out of control.
We should make identifying possible solutions to these problems an automatic response after identifying them. What is needed here is a well publicized boycott of their advertisers' products and services.
