How do you feel about the “fake news” crap peddled as of late?
Ever since the “MSM” botched
the manipulation of the recent Presidential Election, I’ve watched with curiosity as the “establishment” has tried to reign in the obvious dissent towards sponsored propaganda that has been peddled out over the past few centuries. Fake News is the current sortie.
The “interwebs” as they’re often called – have become the “Wild West” for those who want control over “the rest of us.”
And those who previously held “power” over everyone else (at least in their own minds – and based off their achieved results) are now panicking.
But it’s too little too late. Those that can see the writing on the wall don’t need convincing anymore. The days of propaganda are numbered.
Not without a fight, however.
Wildcards in the making
There are several issues that need contending with. Especially with this “fake news” situation.
One is, that the “MSM” still has a fairly large monopoly. Especially with heavily controlled and regulated “TV” (“TeeVee” “IdiotBox” “MoronTube” are other versions). A lot of people are still influenced by that dopey moving images box. Whether it’s “news” or other mindless entertainment. Finding the truth is hard and uncomfortable to many.
Two – we had a recent internet “change” which may very well have some impact on how ALL OF US communicate. I can only theorize on what so-called “power” they have over these interconnected wires of text and images. But you never know. I’ve already noticed DISTINCT differences in my search results – even using so-called “secure” sites like DuckDuckGo. Something is awry.
Three – with the advent of this so-called “fake news” list (despite the MAJOR backlash from independent media), I can only see worse things ahead. They planted their seed (and most “MSM” followed suit like well-behaved pets), and one can only wonder what the next step will be.
Some interesting times ahead for sure.
