Post-Truth // FMP

I have since found myself at this TV advertisement from 1964, part of Lyndon Johnson’s campaign for President of the United States.

It’s been widely described as one of the most controversial and effective political adverts in US history, and it’s easy to see why.  There is zero fact, it runs on emotional triggers and fear.

2017 Trump campaign anyone?
