Yes I agree, the news source you should trust the least is the one you visit the most. Just to keep on your toes, you never know but it's worth being
I would wager that half the stuff I thought was true, probably isn't. That goes without saying though.
Whoever controls the press/media would be in a position to control our minds, so to speak.
I was thinking it's sort of like, politics is a giant global chess board. And everyone is a piece, but the trick is to get them to act on the board in
your favor, even as a ruse or decoy. Think about the word "propaganda" itself.
propaganda 1718, from Mod.L. propaganda, short for Congregatio de Propaganda Fide "congregation for propagating the faith," committee of cardinals
established 1622 by Gregory XV to supervise foreign missions, prop. abl. fem. gerundive of L. propagare (see propagation). Modern political sense
dates from World War I, not originally pejorative.
Hmm, it's from propagation.
propagation mid-15c., from O.Fr. propagacion (13c.), from L. propagationem (nom. propagatio) "a propagation, extension," noun of action from propagare
"multiply plants by layers, breed," from propago (gen. propaginis) "that which propagates, offspring," from pro- "forth" (see pro-) + *pag-, root of
pangere "to fasten" (see pact).
Pro- and pact.
pro- prefix meaning "before, forward, in favor of, in place of," from L. pro "on behalf of, in place of, before, for," also in some cases from
cognate Gk. pro "before, in front of," both from PIE *pro-, extended form of root *por- "forward, through" (cf. Skt. para "beyond," pra- "before,
forward, forth;" Gk. paros "before," para- "from beside, against, beyond;" Goth. faura "before," O.E. fore "before, for, on account of," fram
"forward, from"). Pro and con is attested from c.1400, short for pro and contra "for and against" (L. pro et contra).
pact (n.) early 15c., from O.Fr. pacte "agreement, treaty, compact," from L. pactum "contract, covenant," from neut. pp. of pacisci "to covenant,
to agree, make a treaty," from PIE root *pag- "fix, join together, unite, make firm" (cf. Skt. pasa- "cord, rope," Avestan pas- "to fetter," Gk.
pegnynai "to fix, make firm, fast or solid," L. pangere "to fix, to fasten," Rus. pazu "joint," O.E. fegan "to join," fon "to catch seize").
So really it's like you can only believe the media based on "faith", therefore it's religious because you are "trusting" them when you may actually be
When you believe in it, and take action on their behalf, you are agreeing to uphold a type of covenant aligned with whatever agenda you may not be
And you are totally right, this applies to all media outlets, and hell probably even things like publishing companies and regional papers, etc.
