    Infact Obama wanted to take it out of the bill, it was FORCED ON HIM BY THESE FOOLS!

    The only way to force something on President is to overturn his veto. Which didn't happen in this case. So let's not kid ourselves: he is completely on board with this shite.

    That's not what happened. He could not veto the defense spending bill!

    NDAA was added by WHOM? Not Obama, it was the Repukes, McCain and Graham. It eventually was rammed down Obama's throat part of the defense spending bill.

    So go read your history , it was not that long ago.

    Regardless of whether it's stories are true of false, accurate or inaccurate it is propaganda against the West.

    Then it is unimportant whether or not it's propaganda. All that is important is if the stories are true and accurate.

    I disagree, I am not interested in consuming Russian made propaganda targeted at the West, they have their own agenda.
    It's your personal opinion that it does not matter and your welcome to it.

    I will not consume RT (Russian State Owned Media), it's obviously propaganda.

    Being that I don't watch RT I can't speak to whether or not I feel it is propaganda.

    I do however believe that it is important if something is propaganda. Something can be truthful, yet not tell the whole story and/or be presented, subtly or not, in a way to sway people away from the truth--true yet intellectually dishonest.

    Take for instance the issue in this thread of whether or not Obama has kept his promises. Say one had created some hypothetical news network that had a mission to misinform people and turn them against democrats. Let's say that 100% of there extensive coverage on Obama was discussing the 22% of promises he broke. While truthful this would not be an "honest" representation of Obama's record on keeping promises. I am sure that no American would have the moral depravity to take part in such a deceptive news organization like that. However, such an organization would breed ignorance, spread hate, and be harmful to public discourse in America.

    LOL ;) Alas, due to the dynamic you described, American perception of reality is bifurcating to such a degree that people live in polar opposite worlds. Even seemingly objective numbers, like % of promises kept or broken, are distorted by different lenses. Politifact spins promises broken into promises kept, while Faux News spins promises kept into promises broken. Perhaps it was always like that and we didn't see it before the WWW, which has enabled some people to see more broadly while others have dug deeper into their own silos.

    I do watch RT occasionally and it can be interesting to see Putin's relentless critique of America. I wouldn't call it more objective necessarily but it comes from a different perspective and shows the elephant from a different angle. For example, they reported Romney's apparent voter fraud at a time when most American news outlets were shouting their usual binary narrative (Republicans saying voter fraud is committed by Democrats vs Democrats saying voter fraud doesn't happen).

    In regards to propaganda......

    If you want to speak in a very strict sense, where propaganda is defined as an attempt to influence someones opinion with selective facts, than almost everything is propaganda. News programs, talk radio, periodicals, books, art...even entire subjects like history and sociology are ingrained and shaped with biases. Even this very forum and the premise of this forum can be considered propaganda. Is RT news really that different than CNN? Is Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity really any different than Chris Matthews and Soledad O'brien? They are just opposite sides of the same coin.

    I believe a truly intelligent person can take an idea or opinion, analyze and dissect it in their own mind, and accept it or reject it based on its own merits.

    Unfortunately for you 121212, a court had struck down the provision pertaining to indefinite detention contained in the NDAA. The court decided it was unconstitutional. The Obama administration immediately appealed that decision to reinstate the provision! Obama is for it! Don't listen to what Obama says, watch what he does damn it!

    U.S. Congress Continues To Block Guantanamo Closure

    (not OBAMA)

    "Civil rights advocates still hope Obama stays true to his word. By his own power, he could take significant steps to close the prison, or he could issue a so-called signing statement that supersedes the law preventing federal money from being used to transfer prisoners.

    Zachary Katznelson, a senior attorney at the American Civil Liberties Union, said Obama can release 87 Guantanamo prisoners who have been cleared, and start proceedings for trials for the other 169 detainees.

    "President Obama has enough control and power that he can get these men out today if he has the political will to do so," Katznelson said. "It is a political decision."

    35% of promises kept seems low to me! Especially since many of his broken promises could have been kept by a simple order from him. Not legislation in many cases, just an order.

    Yeah, that does seem low. Let me help you with an updated chart (I pulled it today):

    If you are pissed at Obama you must be livid with the GOP:

    Thanks for updating it! I am not politically affiliated...I don't like politicians in general, regardless of party.

    Sure, just about everything has bias, but that does not make it all propaganda. We live in a world of grey, no just black and white. Propaganda is an extreme bias where you are literal getting only one side of the story with the intent of influencing someone to support an idea, cause, etc.

    Yes, they are different not quite "just opposite sides of the same coin."

    I am not familiar enough with RT, but sure CNN has a bias however I would not call CNN propaganda per se.

    Beck and Hannity do only tell one side of the story. Often with their selective facts are heaps of out right lies. Viewers of FOX "news" are worse informed on world and US events than people who watch no news. Beck and Hannity's depravity and shameless propaganda knows no bounds. If you are interested in the subject it was discussed at length in this thread:
    http://patrick.net/forum/?p=1219028&page=3#comments

    Is MSNBC (Chris Matthews) propaganda? Yeah, it seems so, but not nearly to the degree that FOX "news" is. People who watch MSNBC are better informed than those who watch no news on domestic issues, but not international.

    If you are looking for a news source with very low bias try NPR.

    Think about it. Fox is the news arm of the GOP.

    RT is STATE RUN !!! Meaning........... it is the English news propaganda arm of Russia.

    I don't find them anti-american or whiny at all. Very informative and they have all kinds of Americans on with all kinds of political views and their interview style is fair but they don't take bs instead they politely try to get to the core of the issue past the bs. Also the notion of Russia being the eternal enemy of the US in a globalized world doesn't hold much water.

    Yes, while this give me pause I am not sure how much it actually matters. FOX "news" is privately held yet it would be hard to rival FOX for output of effective propaganda.

    I was responding to this, fukwit Spagnetti

    First off, it's ok to make a mistake 121212, which you obviously did. We are all imperfect and prone to making them. You have to learn to admit those mistakes and move on. I think you don't want to seem stupid or uninformed, but you're approach is wrong. Being able to admit mistakes can garner respect and is a sign of intelligence and maturity, whereas the inability to admit mistakes, fosters disrespect and shows immaturity and ignorance.

    Secondly, I'm tired of your incessant name calling directed towards others and myself. I already ignored your alter ego 121212 for the very same reason. I won't delete your posts or ignore your new identity.....yet. Go ahead and post on this thread, but keep it clean! If you can't control yourself, don't post.

    Relative to previous administrations, Obama has an outstanding record of keeping his campaign promises.

    OK show me.

    Is a 45% success rate good for a president? Sure, Bush sucked, but did he break more promises than Obama?

    Obama is still a lying politician regardless.

    Why don't you start by being honest? It's simple math and you can't even get the % right.

    This isn't some fictional utopia. Obama is not a dictator. It is not possible for any politician to keep all his promises without seizing absolute fascist power.

    It is this idiotic fantasy world that I find most offensive about American citizens who cast votes in this country. You don't get to wish upon a star and have all your dreams come true.

    The question in the title of this thread was "Has Obama kept his promises?" The legitimate answer to this question is "generally yes". The extent that he kept his promises can be debated and discussed, however you have absolutely no intention of doing that. You just want to scream "Obama bad!!" like a spoiled child who didn't get the right Star Wars toy for Christmas.
