I truly believe that misinformation to the uneducated/ gullible public has played a large part into where we are.
Very true. I've often thought that is the real reason for a targeted campaign against Fox and Rush Limbaugh. There are other conservative outlets, but those two seem to have the vast majority of the share. And so the left quietly quashes dissent by steering people away from those sources in the first place, but then also discrediting any argument shared or originating from them regardless of merit.
Notice how no one said too much when Obama routinely disparaged Fox News. Because they agreed, and they were onboard. Now when Trump does it to CNN he's "threatening our Democracy!!!!!"
Funny thing is, if you really wanted to knock Fox down in terms of influence and counteract them, you'd launch another conservative network to steal share and put out different messaging.
