Anyone remember the phrase from the 1976 movie Network "I'm as mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore!" I rented the movie last year and in there they say "We are going to tell people what to think".

Watch these movies if you want to see what most already believe; movies, the news/press and social media are manipulating information to influence what we think and belief.

The Social Dilemma Watch The Social Dilemma | Netflix Official Site

Then watch something fun, like https://www.amazon.com/True-Grit-John-Wayne/dp/B00AALKNBA/

Watch The Green Berets, a very intentional pro involvement spin from John Wayne. Of course people want to manipulate us, guide us to things. This is nothing new. Same goes for books. The Jungle was meant by Upton Sinclair to move people to socialism. It moved people, but to have inspections/rules (1906 Meat Inspection Act) not socialism.

A thread about news and manipulation and no mention of Joseph Goebbels? Quite possible the grand master of it all.

"Not every item of news should be published. Rather must those who control news policies endeavor to make every item of news serve a certain purpose."

news != information

information travels faster than news now. there is too much raw data. it's obvious "news" is only interpretation, censorship, and programming. if you need someone to tell you what's important and what isn't, you've already lost.
