Is it fair to say the purpose of American Media is no longer to inform but to manipulate?

As someone who used to work for the market research industry, I've come to have an appreciation of the importance of perception in shaping public opinion. When I say perception, I want you to think of a phrase called character assassination and think about what that implies. For instance remember That French guy http://www.theguardian.com/world/2011/may/19/dominique-strau... Dominique Strauss Kahn who was head of the International Monetary fund, who was accused of raping a maid at his hotel. He was forced to step down from his position and ostracized.

Hunger Games Activism

Hunger Games 2 comes out this friday. I have read the books and saw the first movie. Contrary to what some in the media portray, it is an anti-statist movie and can be very useful to the Liberty movement.

As the much anticipated movie comes out next friday, I pieced together some flyer material that I plan on distributing to people entering and exiting the movie theater. You can view the materials below. Feel free to share and I would be happy to hear suggestions.

Peace

The Role of Propaganda in Shaping Public Opinion

Whoever controls the information people have access to, also controls the people. The media has the unique ability to manipulate public opinion. They can emphasize this story, or choose not to publish another story. They coordinate their stories to the point where station after station after station all across the country will report the exact same story verbatim.

If I were to watch the news and see a story that just didn't seem right, or that leaped out at me. I'd want to know more, so naturally I'd flip channels looking at other stations to see what they have to say about this particular story, and what do you know? ABC, CBS, CNN, FOX, NBC, MSNBC and even the local stations all have the same story almost verbatim. Every mainstream outlet is saying the same thing, so it must be true. Since there really isnt a news alternative for the small screen. You'd have to go to the internet and look, and even then you'd seen the same story repeated on all the "acceptable" news outlets. Alternative news sources like The Intercept, Boiling frogs, Zero Hedge, Wikileaks, The UKGuardian, which reported extensively on the NSA scandal among many others are all viewed as suspect, an idea that has been promulgated by the media establishment.

In fact I would argue that the media establishment (CNN, ABC, CBS, BBC, NBC, MSNBC, FOX) have everything to gain by downplaying the importance of alternative news outlets and portraying them as conspiracy theory sites.

This is What a High School Football Game Looks Like In a Police State


http://youtu.be/WqxZNipAdxI

Rader, a 17-year-old senior at PHS, said that after the officer claimed that he had pushed him Rader denied touching the officer. That’s when the ski-masked man shoved him backward into a walkway.

We can then see on the video that the officer sprayed the completely non-violent teen right in the eyes with pepper spray.

Prosecutor Will Go to Jail for Wrongfully Convicting an Innocent Man

For the First Time Ever, a Prosecutor Will Go to Jail for Wrongfully Convicting an Innocent Man

Today in Texas, former prosecutor and judge Ken Anderson pled guilty to intentionally failing to disclose evidence in a case that sent an innocent man, Michael Morton, to prison for the murder of his wife. When trying the case as a prosecutor, Anderson possessed evidence that may have cleared Morton, including statements from the crime's only eyewitness that Morton wasn't the culprit. Anderson sat on this evidence, and then watched Morton get convicted. While Morton remained in prison for the next 25 years, Anderson's career flourished, and he eventually became a judge.

In today's deal, Anderson pled to criminal contempt, and will have to give up his law license, perform 500 hours of community service, and spend 10 days in jail. Anderson had already resigned in September from his position on the Texas bench.

From the gridiron field to the potato farm: NFL player quits to take up farming

Why a star football player traded NFL career for a tractor
Steve Hartman, CBS NEWS, November 14, 2014

LOUISBURG, N.C. - At one point number 60, Jason Brown, was one of the best centers in the NFL. At one point he had a five-year, $37 million contract with the St. Louis Rams. And at one point he decided it was all meaningless - and just walked away from football.

"My agent told me, 'You're making the biggest mistake of your life,'" said Brown. "And I looked right back at him and I said, 'No I'm not. No I'm not.'"

So what could possibly trump the NFL?

You wouldn't believe. Jason Brown quit football to be a plain, old farmer -- even though he'd never farmed a day a in his life. Asked how he learned to even know what to do, Brown said:

"Get on the Internet. Watch Youtube videos."

Rand Paul Beats Ted Cruz, Saves NSA From ‘Reform’

One wants to fix the spy agency from the inside. The other wanted to block watered-down reforms of the secret state. The winner just might get to be President.

The fight to rein in NSA surveillance stalled in the Senate Tuesday evening — meaning the lasting impact of the months-long reform effort will be less about the agency and more about the presidential aspirations of Sens. Rand Paul and Ted Cruz.
