Bridging The Gap
Over in Europe, the populist political upstarts at Alternative for Germany.
  Thursday 22 February, 2018
Over in Europe, the populist political upstarts at Alternative for Germany.

The right-wing German party AfD takes its cues from Donald Trump with a direct line to their audience.

As Donald Trump’s White House has shown, if you want to get a message to your supporters you’ve got to go direct.

Yes, Fox News is a supportive outlet but no medium finds its mark quite like a rage-inducing tweet from the president’s own thumbs. Over in Europe, the populist political upstarts at Alternative for Germany (AfD) have adopted a similar approach,

setting up their own “newsroom” for seeking out and covering stories that aren’t being publicised by mainstream media. While there’s nothing wrong with the ploy in theory,

it’s troubling because the motivation behind it is not to uncover the truth. As political journalist Lance Price puts it, "This is not about putting out news; this is clearly about putting out propaganda.”
