When your lifestyle depends on getting the public to watch and listen at your feet and not at your competitor's, continuity of a
narrative eventually loses it's significance. The media and those they serve will deafen the environment with examples and
explanations of a theme until their goal is acquired.

Then... look, a young Minke whale gets stuck in the river Thames and had to be killed.
Look, some crazy shoots his wife and kids because of easy access to guns.
Oh my... Mr Fauci advises that we should wear masks at every flu-season, a joke within itself!

Your comment of 'hearts & minds' is correct because of their ingrained Class status. The public they preach to are dumb... you
and me, dumb as rocks. When selling your wares to such stupid folk, concerns of confusion and disillusionment are not needed.
What are you going to do...? NOT watch the television or buy a newspaper?!!

Their awareness of the internet and rational-based discourse is stunted because of their self-importance. The recent flexing of
their muscles in regards of Covid-19 is evidence of that. Those who still believe CNN isn't a comedy channel and relies on their
commentary/news to tell them how their world turns, are seen as devoted worshippers and would never 'go over' to a conduit
of information where kids talk about computer games and look at porn.
No... never.
tinyhuh
The bottom-line is these people in the media believe they are better than you and me, but don't mean it nastily. They just are.
I've actually heard Journalists say this! They don't mean it as an insult, it's been generated from the idea of knowing the
truth of a subject and the power felt from relaying a version of it to those who supposedly need such information to run their lives.

They're aware that their trade is dying, that I'm certain of. But their failure to adhere to the moral ethics once instructed in
Journalist-training is the main crippling aspect of the mainstream media's situation. The ironic point is that a comic hero
called 'Spiderman' -a photographer for a newspaper, held the credo: "with great power comes great responsibility"!

The other irony is that most established publishers of factual information are on par with comics.

Good writeup!

I agree that alot of people seem kind of stupid, but I'm pretty sure that even if we limit ourselves to Mensa-level IQ, that leaves two percent who ARE indeed capable of reasoning their way out of a paper bag.   That's alot of people out of the US population. I wonder.....where are journalists at on this scale?   Physicians only average 120.  Mensa entry level is 130 IIRC.   Not so sure they need to tell this two percent fuck all.

And yes, we have indeed cancelled the newspaper subscription and can only stomach brief portions of BBC.  Hubs reads the Daily Mail because they have our local news BEFORE ANYONE HERE does (which we see as slightly outrageous).   Everything else is completely ignored.   Pretty sure we're not the only household in any of this.

I hadn't heard the baby whale was killed. :(

Don't get me wrong, it's not that most people are dumb, it's that many of those who feed their shite to the Journalists 
and the the Journalists themselves THINK their customers are dumb! This is the main cause for the damage in the world
of information reporting.

It's a pompous view that's comes from the middle-class backgrounds of those who enter the vocation. Just look at the
substance of today's news. It's all 'celebrity'-orientated or -when an actual incident occurs, is purveyed from a standing
of a non-proletarian. The perception hinted at is people of a certain 'lower' status behave in such a negative manner
because they don't know any better or that it's to be expected of them.

This is why we're currently seeing the false opposition on identification during elections. 'Black people don't understand
the internet' -a slur that isn't realised because of an ingrained belief that there are those who lead and those who follow.
A true aspect of humanity... yes, but the decision of who leads shouldn't be based on wealth and a select education.

I must admit, the BBC Breakfast news programme is a hoot to watch! The banal arrogance displayed in their articles
is cringe-worthy. Again, the 'let's-feel-sorry-for-someone-because-of-their-skin-colour' virtue-signalling is indicative of
their self-presumed Class-status.

It worked for a while, but it's now outdated. And because they desire little interaction with 'the unwashed', they're
unaware of the mockery that occurs just outside their studio doors.

Yes... shame about the whale.

Yes, I see your point about how the public is perceived by them.  Even for average people, they're perceived as being much more ignorant and incapable than they actually are.

Did they at least parcel it out and feed the homeless?

“The nature of psychological compulsion is such that those who act under constraint remain under the impression that they are acting on their own initiative. The victim of mind-manipulation does not know that he is a victim. To him the walls of his prison are invisible, and he believes himself to be free. That he is not free is apparent only to other people.”

As for "how stupid do they see us?" "They" including the government ......  I saw a propaganda piece for the vaccine that said, "It's just fat, sugar and water.  And it has less sugar than this candy bar!"

Not making it up.

Oddly enough, no. It was 'humanely' put out of its misery and the Beeb says:

"A vet from the Zoological Society of London administered the injection shortly after 18:00.
The whale is now being moved and a post-mortem examination is due to be carried out...

Whether a cat-food company makes a phone call this morning is unknown at this point, but the
Salvation Army haven't said anything yet.

That was why I wasn't surprised when Matt Hancock - the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care for the UK,
was televised having his injection. Who administered it...? A nurse? A qualified Health worker?
Remember, optics are everything and it would look good to see the well-publicised injection-vanguard of the
Government accepting his jab from a constantly-thanked, overworked 'front-line-worker'. 

No, it was Jonathan Van-Tam MBE, the Prime Minister's right-hand mouth-piece in relating the rules and over-caution
to the public about a deadly virus. The same guy who attended a conference on 'Why Let A Good Crisis Go To Waste'.

One wonders what was in that syringe.

Amazing....but not in a good way.
