Chaos and Confusion
Book : Nothing is true, everything is possible
Russia is about as capitalist as it gets these days (not to be confused with free market capitalism, there is a slight distinction - this is not a defense of it either), if you can I'd recommend Peter Pomerantsev's Nothing is True and Everything is Possible .
Worth the read and gives an interesting insight into the warping of Russian culture as the oligarch's took power and the economy opened up.
Bedrock part of their plan.
Perfect tool for Putin
No one is saying you shouldn't maintain your skepticism of the news, but there's a distinction to be made between news outlets, don't you think?
A news outlet that aspires to truth and one that aspires to propagandize shouldn't be falsely equated to one another.
Before claiming this is a false equivalence (or the opposite- claiming they are indeed similar enough to be equated) one should ensure there's substantial evidence supporting this claim. Otherwise the argument only serves to muddy the waters between news outlets.
There are some really dystopian consequences of removing all public trust in the media/press- imagine a country where everyone believes that Nothing Is True And Everything Is Possible.

Nothing Is True and Everything Is Possible
Exactly what Trump wants to hear.
You might see the first AG (attempted) appointee that isn't even an attorney. As crazy as this circus is, you might see Alex Jones on the list. Uncharted territory here everybody.
