I agree that it’s slipping — but until conservatives learn how to fight the information war, the left’s mighty echo chamber will still be more effective than any of us want. Here is David Prentice writing at American Thinker:
The left and its echo chamber are convinced they are taking out Trump. It’s their “narrative” and they actually believe their own PR. They don’t see how they have driven themselves over the edge of reason and can no longer convince others. The only people they have convinced are themselves — of their own righteousness. And they actually believe they have succeeded.
This echo chamber once held great power. They used to be able to form “narratives,” (activist storylines to decide and interpret news), persuade the powerful, and terrorize the right. They could make most Republicans quake just by pulling out the race card or the half dozen other narrative cards they have used for so long. The chamber was constructed over decades. Leftist educators and pols used this Alinskyite playbook to ascend to power, and damn, they were good at using it. One of their pols, or media stars would say something, often perfectly false, and voila! the media, and their fellow Democratic Party pols would echo it and repeat it so much, it would literally become true in the minds of the majority of the public. The ideas that Republicans were racist, or against science, or had brazenly ruined the environment, are great examples of what they accomplished.
Now, the echo chamber is losing its power. The tricks the left used to nominate and elect a man who literally had no business running for any office — that’s President Obama, who had no qualifications for the office — no longer work. These same tricks were used to try to elect Hillary, they even doubled and tripled their usage of the echo chamber. Yet Trump is now president instead of Clinton.
