This is so true of many people! You can't win an argument or bully them into thinking the same way that you do so, you make up lies to get others to take your side and/or make you feel superior! Then you wonder why you don't have any relationship. It's not hard to figure out.
Fear-mongering, war-mongering, paranoia, propaganda, ad hominem, editing speeches to make people look bad, hatred, bigotry, racism, sexism, homophobia, xenophobia. The list goes on and on. And they have the gall to make their motto read "fair and balanced".
