I feel like Malaysia 370 coverage wasn't just to fill a slow-news period, but to actively stick a hand in the face of more important stories. I try
to mentally point out stories which have passed the attention span of the media and public and become passe. It emphasizes the funneling that
constantly happens to the public consciousness.
Any new developments in bitcoin? 2nd-world alliances(BRICS)? Fed Reserve activity? Subversive Federal legislation?
I really don't have any idea so please enlighten me.
Notably, I also do this for conspiracy theories because I used to get yanked in by a lot of scary Henny Penny rhetoric long ago. For example, it
seemed like 2009 was a big year for videos where computer-generated voices talked about the imminent plan for depopulation. Where did THAT go? Or
how about the poisoned Pacific that was about to give everyone on the West Coast radiation sickness? That should have been laughed out of forums a
LONG time ago, and I think it finally has been.
*What portion of this fervor in those phenomena was frothy conspiracy theorists and what portion was actual disinfo agents?* I would be interested to
know, even though that is virtually unknowable.
Your thoughts on the matter would be lovely to hear.
