Nope, not what I said. I specified the john oliver show. It is curated to sway your opinion, not on merit, but on pressure. The host goes on a small rant (usually less than 30 seconds) giving his opinion on the issue (the audience is silent and the segment is fairly reverent. This is a serious and thoughtful opinion!), he then quickly (before your mind starts creating it's own counter arguments) turns to a completely non-sequitur argument presented in a way that appears to be contrary to his opinion. During this segment the only real audio (outside of his mocking agrument) is his audience laughing, it teaches your mind that to go against his opinion is to be mocked and laughed at.

The fact that you can't see it speaks volumes to it's quality. If it wasn't funny, enjoyable, and entertaining, it wouldn't be good brainwashing.
The daily show attempted the same thing, but it didn't execute it with nearly the same precision that john oliver does.

I avoid those shows with fake laugh tracks. Psychological conditioning that we've been exposed to for decades. Most of that crap on sitcoms is not even remotely funny, but you can hear this idiotic crackle of laughter that makes people think it is.

Correct, it's not a conspiracy. It's a psychological fact. After all, a ringing bell couldn't possibly make you hungry.

‘Calling for a revolution!’: Trump fans ‘triggered’ after NPR tweets out the Declaration of Independence


After NPR tweeted the Declaration line by line, Donald Trump backers–seemingly unaware of the source document–accused NPR of playing partisan politics.


Gotta see the entire article for a laugh.

This is the idiocy that conservative "intellectual elitist", William F. Buckley Jr, warned his party 50 years ago against giving power to.

How about instead of looking at an article and getting your info filtered, you head right over to twitter and read through the comments on the NPR tweets.

twitter.com...

I think they actually included all of the people that were "triggered" by it in your story. Yes, there are dumb people that support trump, no doubt. Just like there are dumb people that supported obama. This "news" story is not really news at all. More people were annoyed that they were getting alerts on their devices about it than were "triggered."

Ok you know what, in the spirit of fairness, I gave you a star and tell you that you're right.

You know what I think you're right about? That people can be brainwashed, and that's as far as i'll go. Brainwashing only works on people subsceptible to a high degree of influence to begin with. You made a sweeping accusation on 2 fronts now

1) That you're not surprised that "someone like me" watches John Oliver and
2) That there's a "fact" that I cant see it thereby making the assumption that I cant see things....for all you know, I spend my days and nights employing these same techniques that you claim "I cant see" (I don't, but you couldn't know that), you know nothing about me except what I choose to share here.

For my part, I watch it because I think it's funny and that's it. There is no inherent guarantee that I agree with all or ANY of his conclusions. In the video I posted, I agree with almost every single one of them.

This isn't the way a President should act, nor is it considered Journalism to mock and post memes and crap about a president. That is for comedians, not journalists.

That's why the whole thing is like a circus.

JOE SCARBOROUGH's poor fragile ego is so butthurt over Trump's insult, that he announced today he's leaving the Republican party.

STORY: www.huffingtonpost.com...

Boo..hoo... Will the party survive without him?
