:sifone::cuss::dupe::iagree: From OJ to the Zimmerman trial or the latest disgusting cameo of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on the cover of Rolling Stone, American Media shows itself increasingly tasteless & disgusting. They and their fans have a sick fascination: an addiction for the sugary mixture of blood & fame with the sensational draw of a sold-out freak show. There may have been a different outcome of the trial of Casey Anthony had the camera not showed her Oscar-winning portrayal of innocence resulting in a verdict that even shocked the trial's Own Judge. He later commented that he nearly choked on reading the jury's final finding, so that he had to read it twice to make certain of what he was really seeing. If you believe a 'jury of your peers' is not affected & skewed in judgement by being in or near the limelight & tinged shadow of the TV Camera; or thinking in terms of future book deals, interviews & latent fame, think again. Court TV ought to be banned in this country as an obvious interference to a fair trial by jury. There is a difference between individual free speech & politicking on the part of liberal or conservative multi-conglomerate media outlets who subtly formulate opinions by tinkering with the psyche of the masses. Mass manipulation, albeit nebulous, bears a striking & terrifying resemblance to the activities of Goebbals, the Nazi propaganda mastermind behind Hitler; who swayed the opinions of the German people in the Führer's favor. Seeing that all US News outlets are in the hands of very few individuals (around a dozen) who have merged hundreds of subsidiaries under their masterful umbrellas, it is naive to think that the Media itself is nothing else but a tool in their hands to achieve their own gains as the World Thought Police of Orwellian notions. But that's Corporate Personhood for you. Or maybe it's just a sport & the mega-rich media moguls enjoy playing with our heads. After all, if you own most of everything, what entertainment is really left to you, but playing chess with peoples' lives?
