From an article in The Economist, about Hindu nationalists now dominating India after recent elections:

[Nationalists] insinuated, for instance, that other parties had showered particular favours on Muslims voters—who in fact are generally worse off than their Hindu compatriots.

Note how Fake News will use any fact to blunt the truth.

Truth: other parties had showered particular favours on Muslims voters
Fake News sauce: —who in fact are generally worse off than their Hindu compatriots

Whether Muslim voters are better or worse off is not the question. Hindus are aggrieved by the fact that Muslims get special treatment. It’s a fact that Muslims get special treatment by the Government of India (for example, the government pays for the Muslim Hajj to Mecca.) But Fake News wants things to stay that way, so it tries to blunt the fact with irrelevant nonsense intended to make the reader feel sympathetic to Muslims.

As a bewildered LA Times finds out:

Los Angeles County had a dismal turnout rate in the March 7 election, the first chance for voters to express themselves at the ballot box since Donald Trump’s stunning victory. People here seem more political than in the past — they go to a lot of protests and town halls, and they fill their social media accounts with anti- GOP screeds. But less than 12% of eligible voters showed up.
This suggests that hatred of our new president isn’t sufficient to get out the vote.

Granted, the election was a local affair. The most controversial questions for voters involved measures to regulate the cannabis industry and restrict development. The national GOP was not on the ballot. Neither was Trump. And yet, politicians and activists, eager to combat the usual off-year, off-season voter apathy, certainly tried to inject Trump in the race.

His name and face were everywhere and a part of almost every campaign. He was on mailers, mobile ads and door hangers. Candidates and interest groups worked overtime to show that their opponents were somehow supportive of, aligned with or of similar cast of mind to the unpopular man in the White House.

And after millions of dollars were spent making Trump the issue on everything from land use decisions to fixing potholes, Angelenos stayed home. That could mean trouble for Democrats nationwide…. The question for Democrats: If these core groups in L.A. didn’t show up on Tuesday, will their counterparts elsewhere show up for the 2018 midterm?

“Let me just say that fear is stronger than any wall. What we are seeing right now is the ‘Trump effect.’”

Heh. Not even Trump’s opponents can deny the power of the Trump Effect.
