It's time to outfox FoxNews.

I just had an idea: Trump's base has FoxNews. We have MSNBC and Free Speech TV. Both of "our" channels target an audience of college-educated (or smart enough to go to college, but took another path to a career), liberal viewers.

It's time to outfox FoxNews with a new liberal channel that mimics the whole FoxNews infotainment platform. Call it, oh, I don't know, let's say, . . . "HooterNews: News That Will Keep You UP All Night"! That would grab their attention. Then, once we have piqued their curiosity and they click on our HooterNews Channel, we will bombard them with the truth about Trump and the Republicans, but presented in a way that does not immediately tip them off that it's a liberal channel. There would be:

* Bleached-blonde news hosts in super-short dresses who cross and uncross their legs a lot.
* Interviews with World Wrestling Federation stars who are liberals, if we can find any. If we can't find any, just pay them enough to read a list of truths in an aggressive, macho manner about Trump's aberrant and abhorrent behavior.
* Conspiracy theories that are actually true (such as how the Trump family and friends stole millions from donors' 2016 inaugural funds), but presented in a gossipy way by some flamboyant TV personality, I'm thinking Wendy Williams, but for Trump's base, she would have to be white, 'natch.
* For commercials, show all the same commercials that they would see on FoxNews, even, or especially, the MyPillow guy.

Would this be sinking to the Republicans' level? Would this be propaganda? Would this be manipulative? Yes. Yes. And yes. But it would be like hiding your sick dog's medicine in a spoonful of ice cream. Deceitfulness motivated by love and concern. Because without this kind of sleight of hand, I honestly don't see how we can overcome the brainwashing to which a certain segment of the population has succumbed.
Yes! That'll do it!! Any crap read off a teleprompter by a bleach blonde in a short dress is sure to have a LOT of credibility!

Again, DUmmys never get tired of demonstrating to the world just how stupid they are.  In fact, they revel in it.

DUmmie LaMouffette, what you’ve just posted is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever read. At no point in your rambling, incoherent post were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone on DU and the Cave is now dumber for having to read it. I award you no recs, and may God have mercy on your soul.
The policies that are indorsed by this party, that they backer of which are much of the 1 percent, causes a social structure much like the one back before the Revolution.

Sounds like it will just as appealing as Samantha Bee's unwatchable rage-fueled rants.  Those have been such a super huge hit with Conservatives and Republicans, you betcha.

They SERIOUSLY think we'd fall for this?
They really don't know us at all.

Yep.
Air America (BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA) crashed and burned for three reasons:
1. Abysmal ratings due to the fact that, as you pointed out, it bored the snot out of potential listeners other than the most rabid of ultra- leftists, who proved to be a pretty small marketing demographic.
2. Its aforementioned bad ratings led to it being unable to attract enough sponsors to help it stay in the black.
3. Its doom was hastened by the scandals it ended up being involved with, such as its managers being exposed as having stolen money from a children's charity to try and provide additional funding.
