An Initial Set of Sites That Reliably Echo USA!USA! Propaganda
We have used a combination of structural analysis and critical reading, including analysis of content, timing, technical indicators, and other reporting, in order to initially identify (“spangle-flag”) the following as USA!USA! propaganda outlets. We then confirmed our initial assessment by applying whatever criteria we did not originally employ during the spangle-flag process, and we reevaluate our findings as needed.
Please note that our criteria is based on which sites paint empire as the good guy in a world full of bad actors. That means the characteristics of the propaganda outlets we identify are managed. For purposes of this definition it does not matter whether the sites listed here are being knowingly directed and paid by USA!USA! intelligence officers, or whether they even knew they were echoing USA!USA! propaganda at any particular point: If they meet these criteria, they are at the very least acting as bona-fide “useful idiots” of the neoliberal establishment and USA!USA! intelligence services, and are worthy of further scrutiny.
We assess that this overall USA!USA! effort is at least semi-centralized, with multiple USA!USA! projects and influence operations working in parallel to manage the direct and outsourced production of propaganda across a wide range of outlets. It is data-driven, and rewards effective entrepreneurship and innovation with increased funding and other resources. There are varying degrees of involvement in it, and awareness of involvement. Some people involved seem genuinely unaware that they are being used by USA!USA! to produce propaganda, but many others seem to know full well.

*Editors Note: This list is by no means comprehensive, as a comprehensive list of USA!USA! propaganda outlets would necessitate several terabytes of server space and more internet bandwidth than is currently produced by the porn industry.*

I’m adding this as a comment, so as to leave the post as-is (because that was fun and I don’t want to mess with it). The sheer absurdity of the site that I link to in the [context] link should be apparent – but because of the very propaganda that we’re discussing, it’s not. A reminder again that the purpose of propaganda is two-fold: the first is of course simply to disseminate information that is favorable to the person writing the propaganda. There’s no doubt that every country has it’s own propaganda, as does every corporation through their marketing departments. The second reason for propaganda is simpler, though it’s largely more damaging: it’s to sow doubt about EVERY source of knowledge that a society has so as to make every claim to truth uncertain. Put it this way – the powers that be would prefer you believe them and the various outlets that they spew their bullshit through; short of that, however, they’re perfectly satisfied with creating enough FUD that you don’t know what to believe. Confusion is just as effective as misguided belief.
The site I linked to, hat tip to Sassy (https://cienflamingos.wordpress.com/2016/11/25/if-putin-did-rig-the-us-election-good/) and Arthur Silber (http://powerofnarrative.blogspot.com/2016/11/thanks-comrade.html) for it, is a prime example of the 2nd. People may not believe the claim made that they should stick to major sites:
“Obtain news from actual reporters, who report to an editor and are professionally accountable for mistakes. We suggest NPR, the BBC, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, Buzzfeed, VICE, etc, and especially your local papers and local TV news channels. Support them by subscribing, if you can!”
But by the same token, if you call into question everything else (as this site is doing), you leave people throwing their hands up and walking away apathetically – which is just as effective to the needs of State propaganda.
