The quote “Repeat a lie often enough and it will be believed” is attributed to Dr. Paul Joseph Goebbels, who was Adolf Hitler’s Propaganda Minister in Nazi Germany. It’s also, in various forms has been used by and/or attributed to several people since, including Lenin and various Chinese ministers.

In reality, though, there’s no verifiable attribution of the basic quote to anyone. The closest verifiable source would tend to lead us to believe that Goebbels didn’t come up with it on his own, but rather got the idea from his boss.

In Hitler’s book “Mein Kampf” (My Struggle) he originates the idea of “das Grosse Luge” (The Big Lie):

“But the most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly and with unflagging attention. It must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over. Here, as so often in this world, persistence is the first and most important requirement for success.”

In this day and age we the people have witnessed the big lie in mainstream media. For example, CNN has experienced a big decline in ratings due to continually pushing “Big Lies”. Recently acquired by AT&T lets hope CNN reports the news and lets the people form their own opinion rather than push an agenda.

Not to single out CNN, many news outlets push an agenda by repeating a lie often enough and it will be believed.

Mainstream Media has the obligation to their viewers to be objective in reporting the news (real news not fake news) and not be selective in doing so. Report both the GOOD news and the BAD.

Your viewers want it and demand it. Real News, Real Time.
