I'm not sure "fake" is the right word for it. Let me put it this way, everything you see on television, you are meant to see. Think about it. Or go read either of Gerry Manders' books.

There are some exceptions - Amy Goodman's - Democracy Now! for instance.
To me, that show is independent journalism at it's best.

I'm sure there are some very good shows. But the point I'm making is that television is not about programming. It is about advertising and mind control. It puts people into alpha states where they become more susceptable to persuassion. They become receivers without even knowing it. That light blinks 60 times a second, which is what puts people into alpha.

Everything on TV has one and only one message. That is, "Happiness comes from commodities. Buy something. Buy something now!"

I wonder who people think are having all the abortions, watching all the porn and having all the drug abuse? Liberals can't post numbers like that. It's all these so-called Christian Republican right that is doing most of this sh!t, that's who.
