The study states that as a bubble in the market is about to burst, members of the media will start using the exact same words to put a positive spin on the current market situation. Do you think this is some webbot like shared lexicon? Do you think its because they are all being told what to say by the powers that be? Do you think it could be they are all running in the same direction to save face proclaiming things like "No one could have predicted this market behavior." Or do you think this phenomena is caused by something completely different?

No. I think the PTB, from the various areas, like the White house, the Republicans, Democrats, Oil Lobby, Tabacco Lobby, etc.; They put out talking points. Then you hear it all over the place. The same mantra, like "We don't need to raise taxes, we need to cut spending." "We don't have a revenue problem, we have a spending problem."

That's just an example that comes off the top of my head. But, they are everywhere, not just when the economy is about to do something wanky. When they want to push some agenda. Like puppets, all the talking heads just start saying the samething ove and over again.

It's brainwashing, but I don't think it's a lexicon.

There is also neuroprogramming being done, which is more physical that verbal, but it's the same basic idea. Force feeding the public into accepting something they want to do.

The "same words" probably comes from the fact that all the news is controlled by a very few. And that it is a small world where "group think" takes over.

Reporters are dashing around trying to beat deadlines, and copy others' words without thinking about it.

Very interesting - thanks for the link!
