    Default 'Rats Secretly Trained Thousands of Activists to Manipulate Media

    Dems Secretly Trained Thousands of Activists to Manipulate Media, Clinton Library Docs Show

    DNC coordinated with activists to 'infiltrate' talk radio


    The Democratic party developed an elaborate, multi-year operation in the 1990s that deployed thousands of activists to covertly mold public opinion using talk radio, according to documents from the Clinton Presidential Library.

    The Democratic National Committee (DNC), with the blessing of the Clinton White House, launched the Talk Radio Initiative (TRI) ahead of the 1996 campaign. The program trained thousands of operatives to call in to radio shows, conduct surveillance of their contents, and secretly disseminate Democratic talking points while posing as ordinary listeners.

    "Volunteers must be able to keep the project confidential so as not to create the image of a ‘Democratic conspiracy' to infiltrate Detroit area talk radio shows," a 1995 TRI guide prepared by Michigan Democrats said. "Democratic performance in the 1996 elections will no doubt be affected by the success or failure of this initiative."

    Radio show hosts long suspected that someone was training so-called "seminar callers" to inundate their shows with sympathetic callers. Lars Larson, a host in the Pacific Northwest since the mid-1990s, recalled being on the receiving end of many such calls, but was not aware that many may have been trained by the DNC.

    "You would get calls, an hour apart, from different people with different voices and different names, but they would talk the same lines. So close that you knew that this was not a coincidence," Larson said. "It was the same language on the same subject and the same arguments."

    Did the Dems start their own TV network like Fox? The Dems have no masters. You use that because Reds do. It does not apply to the left.

    Not my choice of words, far too kind.
    We are in an endless duration of constant change where the only thing that doesn't change is that change occurs because energy, matter and time are always present
