Get Out of the MSM Bubble!It’s Only Getting Worse Amidst Russiagate Hysteria...

Post by 1989TransAm » Fri Jun 08, 2018 12:24 pm

For some on this forum.

"Whoever controls the media controls the narrative. Whoever controls the narrative controls the world. Media propaganda has reached a level we have not seen in our nation’s history as wars are ignored, politicians destroyed, and truths distorted. But the American people want change and they got that in Donald Trump. Despite that, the media is still the same and is now as atrocious as ever.

“Those who report the news and shape public narratives are of particular interest to US oligarchs, who bought up the old media long ago and are doing everything in their power to secure influence over the new media as well,” caitlinjohnstone recently wrote on Steemit. “Pundits like Joy Reid are some of their most valuable assets, and they protect those assets accordingly. Because whoever controls the narrative controls the world.”

The media bubble is very real and it’s only getting worse. Our major media companies consist of a cast of anchors and pundits suffering from a severe case of Trump Derangement Syndrome. They got 2016 wrong and they are still getting it wrong, continuing to promote the baseless Russian collusion narrative while ignoring the many successes Trump has made in his first two years in office and failing to adequately cover much more significant stories.

Can you imagine how high President Trump's approval rating would be if those outlets would simply report the news without bias in either direction? They simply can't do it, though.

"As the Mueller probe closes in for an indictment against Donald Trump for obvious collusion with Russia to influence an American election, Donald Trump cures cancer. But what does that mean to thousands of people in the pharmaceutical industry who depend on cancer research and drug manufacturing to support their families? Coming up after the break, Michael Avenatti is set to release more incriminating evidence in the Stormy Daniels scandal..."

If that were to happen the dimoKKKRAT party would cease to exist in its present form. The media is an advocate for the dimoKKKRAT party.

You are overlooking a key issue here, an educated, intelligent, inquisitive, open minded, well and widely read, free speech exercising public is the best defense against propaganda.

It takes constant effort. Propaganda loves complacency.

Propaganda will NEVER be abolished.

The Public's efforts are the solution, but blaming others is easier.

^^^Yep! It's commonly referred to as the "main-stream" media doing their best to promote far-left ideology at the expense of actual facts.^^^

So Man up, dig your heels in, point propaganda out, every time, on every side, don't lower yourself to their level, take the high road, take a few hits, let the people think for themselves, show them some respect, you don't need to think for them, nobody said this is easy, and it never ends.

"Take the high road"? That is down right laughable coming for the person who compares Trump to Hitler. :D

"Whoever controls the media controls the narrative. Whoever controls the narrative controls the world.
No longer true, if it ever was. The key is to have a credible media. Once credibility is lost it becomes mere background clutter.
You are overlooking a key issue here, an educated, intelligent, inquisitive, open minded, well and widely read, free speech exercising public is the best defense against propaganda.
Not true. Never has been. How can you explain so many mentally twisted college professors?
Propaganda loves complacency.
Wrong again. A chaotic condition is the best environment for propaganda since people are looking for information and structure. Propaganda is most effective in situations in turmoil. Wartime, economic depressions, political revolutions are all well known to have been subjected to propaganda very successfully.
Propaganda will NEVER be abolished.
This time you are right. Good propaganda is virtually invisible and
indistinguised from truth. Truth is also propaganda.

Please try to refrain from using terms like propaganda that you know nothing about.
Or, consider labeling your comments as mere opinion without fact. That way you won't lose even more credibility.

It was the IG who wrote the report. There was plenty of political bias shown through out the report.

What he knows about the IG report is what he gets from CNN and MSNBC. He is being spoonfed what the media wants him and his ilk to hear.
