I assume that most on this site know that the media is fake....and we all know many who believe it!!

I think it would be a good idea to compile evidence on this thread for those who believe MSM!

Here is a good link to start with!

http://themindunleas...nipulation.html


The world of television and modern media has become a tool of de-evolution, propaganda and social control. Since the reign of Edward Bernays and the rise of the Tavistock Institute in the early 20th century, nearly unlimited resources have been applied to understanding how to manipulate the human psyche through television and other forms of mass media. What we have today is an increasingly sophisticated full-spectrum assault on free will and psychological well-being, and we have come to a point where it is no longer even necessary for media institutions to attempt to hide their blatant work of manipulating public opinion, manufacturing consent, and creating winners and losers in the minds of the already brain-washed public.

Here is a great movie showing how with CGI they can make ANYTHING THEY WANT appear!

That's why I'm going to be a bit dubious if we ever in fact land on Mars or on the other side of the moon like we've been told by 2020. With the CGI I just won't be sure and I can't take it for granted any longer.

How is tv an assault on free will if we are watching it out of free will (or not)? Is somebody making you watch tv over there or something?

I don't think it's a question of an assault on free will. But there is a kind of feeling I get from a lot of media, esp. news media, that what is being presented in the way of comment is presented as though it were a kind of consensus to which any sensible person or normal person would subscribe. Of course, that is going to have an effect on public opinion even though it's only the view of the editors/owners of the media in question.

Do they seek consciously to manipulate public opinion? I think so.
For instance powerful newspaper magnates like the Murdoch's ensure that their papers always reflect the political opinion or vested interest of the Murdoch's.
Repetition of the same message over and over may well result in a kind of Pavlovian conditioning effect.

Even if it doesn't create people's views, it probably does reinforce them in the direction desired.

The assault is not overt as you propose. It's covert, also known as subliminal suggestion. For examples click here.

You may not be technically forced to watch tv, but it's ubiquitous and completely agenda driven.  If you want news or entertainment in video form, the attack is there.

I don't know if I would call it manipulation.  I see it more as businesses who take advantage of anything that can be blown out of proportion in order to make a buck.  Notice how most "stories" only run a few times, then the next big scary or ridiculous happening is the big news.  They just jump from issue to issue without concern for the issue itself, just the money they can make out of how they write up the story they put on the air or in the papers, or magazines.

People should find out more about the News Media Station they watch.

Find out who's the owner and co-owners are, and who they represent.

Google the information to find out.  

I trusted only Fox 5 for the truth, till I found out the co-owners of Fox 5.

Prince Al-Waleed of Saudi Arabia!!!!

How the heck in the world are foreigners running our news!

I feel we are all being played against each other by every media out there .

I just found this thread.....

 

This is all old stuff, hasn't anyone ever read Marshall McLuhan or Alvin Toffler, to name just two?

 

...McLuhan describes the "content" of a medium as a juicy piece of meat carried by the burglar to distract the watchdog of the mind.[8]

 

You can use all the quantitative data you can get, but you still have to distrust it and use your own intelligence and judgment. - Alvin Toffler

yup, I'm sure that days after the first caveman scrawled some marks on a cave wall it was being manipulated and distorted.

since the beginning of civilization and written language there has been "media manipulation".

The thing is: is it useful to simplify all media as fake and/or rubbish just because it is manipulated? After all, it is not all manipulated/distorted to the same extent and we still take notice of newsworthy things in the world we otherwise wouldn't take any notice of. As long as we use our brain media and news is still something we can take advantage of (in regards of getting to know things).

 

Not everything that is distorted is fake. And not everything that is manipulated is evil or stupid. To insist we can simplify media and news (from media) as a whole as fake or rubbish etc. IS what is stupid.

I honestly find the news very informative whether biased or not. 


The media is out to get you...
Run for your lives!
lol  :book: 



Has anyone ever thought that the investigative journalists that publish these stories have opinions?

But uhm yeah, don't believe everything you hear; as it were.

I somewhat agreed with you. Because Media is fake not by all means. Media adds more value to a simple thing that make it viral..

The bias and manipulation isn't necessarily about  the content of the stories they actually report. It's a lot about the stories they don't report, or are prevented from reporting. News reporters generally only submit stories they are assigned, those are approved or not approved by the editor. The editor has control over which stories and how they get reported. The editor can also be influenced by powerful outside entity's as to which news stories are reported, and /or how they are presented.
