Howling at the Moon in Moon, PA: Media-Driven Satanic Panic Fuels Hillary Hatred at Trump Rally

Thousands of hardcore supporters turned out for another Western PA Trump campaign stop in Moon today, just two days before the election.

Fox “News” was in Pittsburgh a few weeks back with a Donald Trump event hosted by Sean Hannity. We were on the inside to witness Hannity orchestrate what was billed as a “town hall” but what was really a pro-Trump rally. Raucous attendees were encouraged to scream and cheer and chants of “Build the Wall”… Continue Reading

The Inside Truth of the Fox Propaganda Machine

On April 13th, Fox “news” staged an event (*staged* being the operative word) in our home turf of Pittsburgh that they billed as a “town hall” with Sean Hannity and Donald Trump.
