Pulling the Plug on Propaganda

If you rely on the TV networks, the newspapers, or magazines to get your information…you are being lied to.

 Just because it looks official doesn’t mean anything.

I was at my parent’s house the other day.  Both of them are in their early 70’s and faithfully read the newspaper and watch TV news.  My dad (a New Deal Democrat) also watches MSNBC regularly…  That is where I saw a segment on the Rachel Maddow Show that featured a young political reporter talking about the state of the race.  This was after the Romney-Obama debate but before the Ryan-Biden one.  Cub reporter said that even with Romeny’s dominating dismantling of Obama in Denver, the President still has a 70% chance of being re-elected.  He said it with a straight face too.

People inside the media bubble and in deep-blue pockets can’t see what is going on around them.  That is also true for the consumers of the propaganda they produce, which may include friends and family.  Some media consumers are conditioned to watch Mainstream/Legacy media outlets and believe that they are credible sources.  If you are a critical thinker though, you may wish to reduce or eliminate your consumption of MSM content.

A while back, I cut the chords.  I no longer have cable TV and have not subscribed to any newspapers or magazines for years.  Not only did I save a lot of many by doing so, I reduced the flow of liberal propaganda into my household.  This is liberating and has enabled me to seek out alternate sources of information that are both more accurate and informative than what comes out of Atlanta, Washington, and New York City.

Consider pulling the plug on propaganda, your mind will thank you for it.
