All media is basically a billboard for advertisers. How did we evolve into a system where professional liars (ie advertisers) are allowed to manipulate you with lies and emotion based “information” with no system for rebuttal? When Exxon/Mobil puts out PR propaganda claiming to be great stewards of the environment, where’s the mechanism for countering those lies? I immunize myself against the mind hijackers by minimizing news and social media. I hit the mute button when commercials come on. When I want information on a particular subject I seek a wide range of outlets especially foreign based like Reuters, Der Speigel and BBC.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

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