Hyer’s Highlights: Does lying help Trump? (Part 2)

On his Sunday radio show, Benji Hyer broke down President Trump’s ‘firehose of falsehood’ strategy – a technique where fear-mongering leaders bombard people with more lies than they can handle (find out more here).

In a feisty hour of debate on-air on this technique, listener Calvin messaged in suggesting that “smart politicians” lie for advantage, whereas “Trump lies for sport”, and “his followers are sports fans, enjoying watching the tennis match of comments going back and forth”.

Listen to Benji Hyer’s response – and how he compares Trump to a professional wrestler.

Hyer’s Highlights: Does lying help Trump? (Part 1)

During the 2016 election, researchers released a report warning about a particular propaganda technique.

The report was primarily about Russia, but the lessons that can be learned from it show how a powerful leader in any country, including the US, can actually benefit from telling porkies.


The technique referred to is known as the 'firehose of falsehood', which highlights how if you bombard people with more lies than anyone can handle, then they can ultimately turn out to shape public opinion in your favour.

On his Sunday radio show, Benji Hyer took a few minutes to evaluate how this is the case in regard to President Donald Trump, and other fear-mongering demagogues.

Hyer's Highlights: To Brexit or Not Brexit?

Hyer's Highlights: To Brexit or Not Brexit?

Britain finds itself in a dilemma.

Do we stay close to Europe to minimise damage, abiding by the EU’s rules? In that case, Brexit hasn’t really been delivered, so we end up asking ourselves: what’s the point?

Or alternatively, we pursue a clean-break, or so-called hard Brexit, in which case there will be significant economic damage and disruption, prompting the question: what’s the price?

With no majority for a certain type of Brexit in Parliament, Theresa May has instead pursued a compromise. Discussing this on Benji Hyer's Sunday radio show, listener Daniel remains unsatisfied, putting the onus on the Prime Minister for the limited successful progress thus far.

However, Benji attempted to reason with Daniel, pointing out that everybody responsible for delivering Brexit has absconded, and divulging to him that auspiciously leaving the EU in whatever capacity still remains a near impossibility.
