I call the GOP & Fox News "fake conservatives" cause their primary mode of interaction with public is through lies. Since no particular group of people like lies there had to be an explanation for why the GOP are so effective in their misinformation & propaganda campaigns. Turns out the answer is simple. They just bought everything (or almost everything). The GOP & Fox News can never win a free speech battle thus they need to corner the information market. Recent history shows this to be the case.
An echo chamber is when you control several sources of information and use those sources of information to spread news and rumors that suit your political and business agenda. i.e. people who watch the news get false information so their opinions of politics of the day is often colored by lies... if you clear up the mis truths, bad reporting and outright lies, public opinion will probably change as well.
An echo chamber is created to make it as difficult as possible to keep public opinion informed so it can make useful decisions based on truthful AND complete information.
Note: The word Conservative in the title is hyphenated because although the GOP & Fox News calls themselves conservatives, actual conservatives prefer truth to lies.
