GOP Governors Created Their Own Fake News Propaganda Outlet

According to the Associated Press, the Republican Governors Association created their own propaganda outlet called The Free Telegraph which was disguised as a legitimate news organization.

The GOP governor's association only disclosed this after the Associated Press did some digging.

The website was registered July 7 through Domains By Proxy, a company that allows the originators of a website to shield their identities. An AP search did not find any corporate, Federal Election Commission or IRS filings establishing The Free Telegraph as an independent entity.

As of early Monday afternoon, The Free Telegraph’s Twitter account and Facebook page still had no obvious identifiers tying the site to RGA. The site described itself on Twitter as “bringing you the political news that matters outside of Washington.” The Facebook account labeled The Free Telegraph a “Media/News Company.” That’s a contrast to the RGA’s Facebook page, which is clearly disclosed as belonging to a “Political Organization,” as is the account of its counterpart, the Democratic Governors Association.

This is audacious even for the GOP, but it's not that surprising when you consider that Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is the chairman of the Republican Governors Association. Walker has zero moral qualms about deceiving the public and, in fact, deception was his ticket to the governor's mansion.

    Who needs Russians when you have Republicans?

    That’s like asking who needs a sofa when you have a couch.

    Appalling but hardly surprising. If it weren’t for deception and screwing over the poors, the Rs would have no principles at all.

    It is so exhausting having these people around. Can they please be raptured or something so that we Leftovers can have a sane country again? FFS.

    Not surprising. They have been lying through their teeth for years. Death panels, birtherism ( its and ism now), budget issues. This last election. If they are a “family” as Paul Ryan says they are more akin to the Cosa Nostra family than the Brady Bunch.
