We treat the news just as seriously as any other news outlet. That’s how you know our whole society’s fucked up.
News in America is basically just ridiculous entertainment carefully arranged to deceive, enrage and divide the masses. It’s powered by greed, as editors produce click-bait to sell more ads on. Since only a few media companies own practically all the major outlets, they also offer more insidious “advertising” through manufactured consent.
News does not value the nuances of the individuals involved in the stories. It aims to simplify and reduce, until there’s barely anything left. It aims to sway public opinion. It aims to capitalize on spin.
Pay attention and don’t fall for media tricks.
