Fox News dezinformatsiya is at root of Trump election, how long will it take for the world to figure it out

Hmm, my theories confirmed years later again:

 New Yorker March 6 article confirms my theory that Russia put disinformation in USA in decades before Trump election through media sites such as Fox News. 

The American political landscape also offered a particularly soft target for dezinformatsiya, false information intended to discredit the official version of events, or the very notion of reliable truth. Americans [in 2016] were more divided along ideological lines than at any point in two decades, according to the Pew Research Center. American trust in the mainstream media had fallen to a historic low. The fractured media environment seemed to spawn conspiracy theories about everything from Barack Obama’s place of birth (supposedly Kenya) to the origins of climate change (a Chinese hoax). Trump, in building his political identity, promoted such theories. “Free societies are often split because people have their own views, and that’s what former Soviet and current Russian intelligence tries to take advantage of,” Oleg Kalugin, a former K.G.B. general, who has lived in the United States since 1995, said. “The goal is to deepen the splits.”

Re this post from earlier this year with copies of LTE's I wrote on this subject back in 2012-13. My theory since then is Fox News was a political arm of Putin getting false information out into America for 20 years before the Trump election. The false news on Fox and then repeated on AM talk radio and other sites was blatant anti-American propaganda from Russia, designed to turn a nation's population to turns against each other.

and it worked.
