This is a fantastic article on how propaganda works and how the press is guilty of allowing lies to circulate by giving air time to pathological liars
This is perhaps the media’s greatest sin.
Lon Shapiro

Last year, my daughter came home with a new vocabulary word she didn’t understand. She asked me, “Mom, what’s propaganda?”

I started to explain it the way it was taught to me in 1984 or something and stopped when it didn’t fit anymore. I just looked at her and said, “Wow. Everything.”

I agree that truth isn’t even on the spectrum anymore most of the time. I wrote this a year ago, before Medium, when I still believed the media was at least trying. I believed they were biased but not intentionally so.

My thoughts on this subject have changed a great deal in the last 12 months.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
