This doesn’t surprise me at all. Does that mean I’m jaded? Dems Secretly Trained Thousands of Activists to Manipulate Media, Clinton Library Docs Show.
Because if you can’t compete on a level playing field, do all in your power to destroy the playing field. Or why does NPR still require tax money? Also, does anyone remember liberal talk radio? (I’m sure there is some out there somewhere.)
The Democratic party developed an elaborate, multi-year operation in the 1990s that deployed thousands of activists to covertly mold public opinion using talk radio, according to documents from the Clinton Presidential Library.
The Democratic National Committee (DNC), with the blessing of the Clinton White House, launched the Talk Radio Initiative (TRI) ahead of the 1996 campaign. The program trained thousands of operatives to call in to radio shows, conduct surveillance of their contents, and secretly disseminate Democratic talking points while posing as ordinary listeners.
