Witness the corporate media's enthusiastic complicity in the genesis of every U.S. war of the "television age." George Bush and his gang didn't fool the American people into believing Saddam Hussein posed a deadly threat to the United States - that's beyond the capacity of mass communications amateurs like Donald Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney and G.W. No, it was the constant corporate media megaphone that so expertly herded the public into the corrals of delusion and death. There's a huge section in the dock of future Nuremberg trials reserved for corporate shapers of false realities that lead to the death of millions.
So successful have the media giants been in inventing facts and foisting on the public false scenarios, they have lately taken the logical step of fashioning the circumstances of political campaigns out of whole cloth. Why fiddle around on the edges of fiction, when you can concoct the whole show?
The U.S. corporate media do their misinformation and censorship jobs so well, even establishment outfits like the Pew Research Center consistently note that Americans view the world vastly differently than Earthlings outside the U.S. corporate media bubble.
