A while back i was scouring the web, looking for truth and such, an down the rabbit hole quite a ways, I stumbled upon this video in which this gentleman explains the way the media feeds us sheep propaganda. The thing is, i already knew that I was being programmed, because I felt emotionally attached to various arguments and talking points, but they never really revealed anything new it seemed. All these debates where in vain, and even walking away from well developed arguments felt empty...

Now let me get to my point, watch the video below first;

This opened my eyes. alot. This is actually at the forefront of almost everything I observe now, and now that politics is on heavy rotation and there is about to be a lot of election madness, do you notice things like this? Do you think it effects how you think? and do you feel that this tool used, especially during an election season, pollutes the thoughts of useful and critical thinking of those around you? enlighten..

double bump!
I work with a shop full of Drumpf and cruz supporters who literally get everything they "know" from fox news and the god damn drudge report.....

I think what pisses me off more is when they dog the shit out of the "liberal" media. mother fucker there's no GOD DAMN thing as liberal main stream media. it's been replaced by moderate conservative corporate yes men!

Pretty much every news outlet does this now. It's all manipulation and punditry, not "news"... I watch everything from Fox News to The Young Turks to Al Jazeera to MSNBC on a fairly regular basis, and not one of them is not guilty of this type of information and thought (emotion) manipulation. The key is to recognize that that is what is happening and think for yourself. Truths can still be found in news, you just have to know where and how to look. ;)

I do think calling Sean Hannity a sorcerer is giving him too much credit though... ;)
