Republican Governors are launching their own propaganda site. Ana Kasparian and Michael Shure, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.
“The Republican Governors Association has quietly launched an online publication that looks like a media outlet and has its own social media account, the Associated Press reports.
The website, called The Free Telegraph, runs stories that are critical of the Democratic party and ones that highlight the virtues of the GOP governors. The “fake news” publication, which was launched in the summer, does not disclose that it is produced by the party committee whose goal is to get more Republicans elected.
On Twitter, The Free Telgraph’s description reads “Bringing you the political news that matters outside of Washington,” but does not disclose its affiliation with the association. The website is also labeled as a Media/News company on Facebook. A disclosure was added to the website last week after the Associated Press had inquired about a page identifying its partisan backing.”*
