So you expose brainwashing...
...with your own brainwashing?

All this video does is further entrench left-wingers who already serious bones to pick with Fox News and people's choice in information to begin with.

The air waves should belong to all of us not just a select few with an agenda.




No 5h17, as if YOU don't have an agenda right? Good one!

People tend to become more conservative as they get older. You have a different perspective than a 25 year old has. I can see the value in things the puppy would think is just old fashioned nonsense.

Her dad wasn't brainwashed, he was experienced.

djwajda,
Hell yes! Both sides do the same sh*t and each points the finger at the other as if they're the only ones. And on the rare occasion when these a$$holes finally get something done by talking and striking a compromise they act like they did something new and wonderful, rather than that they behaved like members of Congress or the Senate, doing government the way it's supposed to be done.

I agree with this in so far as it concerns the extreme right, ie Rush, Beck, etc. But please, if you think the left doesn't pull the same tactics you're just as 'brainwashed' as this woman's father is.

HG: I'd call up Roger Ailes. I'm sure he'd have it going in no time. Since you believe we are all his puppets.

"I love how this "happened" to her dad. Cause there is no way he chose to turn the dial to talk radio every day. He was forced to? No. He already agreed with what was being said. Typically people seek out things that agree with them not the opposite. We don't choose to be with people that oppose us. It isn't natural."

ABSOLUTELY

However pundits, the "best" ones, have an extreme view on things and therefore push their listeners and viewers farther form the center. That is why punditry is bad.

So someone might start listening to rush because they are a moderate conservative, but after years of listening they will be WAY farther right than when they started out.

"I'd fund an opposing video named, "How the media turned my daughter into a liberal twat."

What would you fund it with? Money you get from taxpayers so that you can sit home all day bitching about the government?

To say he had no agency but to listen to conservative talk radio is a lie.
If the shoe was on the other foot, all the lefties on here would go nuts.

I came to this video legitimately concerned and left frustrated because it's not about brainwashing.. it's an attack on the right. that's all it is. How shameful. what a waste of time, and why can't the right say anything about the left? the left talks hsit all day every day in the USA. I kind of feel like people may next persecute me for my beliefs in hardwork and equal opportunity without the need for government every step of the way. I think this whole left right thing is starting to get rediculous. People should really rally together and take care of the bigger issues, our politicians (BOTH SIDES) who saunter into their lives but claim that they are waging our battles of ideal. When in reality it appears that all are in cahoots and just putting on a show. Fun fact: The Government "shutdown" has happened many times in our nation's history; only this time 60 % of fereal employees still report to work. Obama is shutting fun things down because he is a mean old man.

@Andrew155,
I'm inclined to agree with you but I'm not sure that she's against conservative talk shows vs. liberal, or if she's just coming out against the change from the old style news where we were given facts without the newscaster's opinion thrown in as a regular feature.

The irony here about civil discourse is overpowering.
