You have such news stations as Fox news which people seem to think is the greatest thing next to sliced bread.But wouldnt you agree when you watch fox news then your always agreeing what they show you on there?The media has created the picture perfect society that could exist if we only did things their way.If the news isn't feeding it to you,then the History Channel or Discover Channel are either talking about the crusades,asteroids,ufos,earthquakes, terrorism.This in fact would be mind control.They are controling your subconcious mind to go along with the fact that the war at first in Iraq is ok.Any news they bring to you in fact is what they want you to perceive it in their eyes.So wouldn't this be mind control???

I don't watch Fox News or any news channel (besides local news) and especially not CNN because have you ever watched CNN for more than an hour? Its like a brainwashing loop of the same story using the same loaded phrases and words over and over and over and over....etc. Seriously...its super annoying.

They use it to brainwash you with phrases like "weapons of mass destruction" and "war on terror."

i agree. its like they think your five years old or something. what pees me off, is that its done all day, everyday, and im sure this condescending tone of communication is exactly how the government sees us. as dumb kids. the amount of 'grooming' is overwhelming and blatant. TV is the most powerful W.M.D

Here's the thing:

Once you're over the age of 13 they're done with you. Once you hit puberty, your mind is your own and no longer is everything around you an overwhelming and incomprehensible factor. If the damage is done, however, the oft-mocked "angsty teenager" is born. That's a great example of the kind of brainwashing that's truly dangerous in America: today we mock it. Years past it was the last throes of childhood. Now it's something people laugh at it, parody, and chide.

All the media cares about is what they can imprint into your subconscious. They know that it's going to be pointless to try and legitimately take over somebody's brain while they're thinking for themselves. So the younger you are, the better the chances. This is clearly evidence in the general demographic aim for television shows over the past decade. The early 1990's focused on gaining teenage audiences with shows about teenagers in high school starring attractive twentysomethings. The early 2000's saw the rise of shows geared towards pre-teenage audiences (a demographic coined "tweens") starring teenage actors who look vaguely fifteen 'til they're twenty five. Then they go to college.

This has been so successful because it in part created the movie-obsessed geeks of the 1980's and also media-obsessed youth of today. There are numerous people aged 20-30, or even 30-40, who continue living affected by the same delusional fandoms that defined their teen years. Kids today are less isolated in their obsessions (tough luck finding a Trekkie in 20 years) which is why it's so scary: they were subjected to idols that portrayed a wide acceptance of pop culture. Generations before them had unrealistic expectations of romance. Generations today will have unrealistic expectations of maturity.

All because of what they watched before they were old enough to know not to watch it.

We need to find a common ground with moralist groups, quite frankly. They of the "less sex, less violence on TV" fame might actually listen to THIS crazy conspiracy.
