Without the conspiracy theories

It’s been there since the day you were born.

The mainstream media. The authority that tells you about the world outside your personal bubble. Your entire nation — millions of people — are informed by it.

There it sits. On our TV screens. On our laptop screens. On our smartphone screens. Beaming information through into our consciousness. But what exactly is the mainstream media?

Everybody will tell you not to trust the media. Everybody will tell you that the media lies. Some will call it The Liberal Media. Others say that it brainwashes the population.

But very few people can actually tell you: How?

That’s what I’m here to tell you.

“The general population doesn’t know what’s happening and it doesn’t even know that it doesn’t know” — Noam Chomsky

Too many people passively accept the messages given to them without ever noticing the strangeness of what they’re looking at. Too many people are so completely confused by the mainstream media that they can’t tell which way is up and which way is down. Too many people have wildly inaccurate perceptions of the world around them.
