I used to listen to CNN headline news for hours on end in 90's

It was just background noise, like leaving the stereo on.

Through the noise I started to see obvious patterns in the skewed reporting.

It was propaganda with a purpose as opposed to news. The make believe news was merely the vehicle. There were always instances of big stories that were ignored (or immediately pulled) and other irrelevant/life-stylish garbage that served their propaganda which got replayed every 30 minutes for weeks on end; with many variations on the same story to change our perception of right and wrong; to convince us that the unimportant was very important and the the important stuff was not important at all.

Focus on important Sporting Events Vs. Unimportant Elections

Anyone or any candidate that insisted on real accountability in government or banking was immediately labelled an extremist in some other area of their life.
