How have you come to that conclusion, because they both have similar thoughts on media? Millions of people have come to the same conclusions, they
don't need to repeat the ideas of another as some form of idol worship as you suggest.
I think you need to learn the difference between idolisation and education. For example, Marilyn Manson also studied Nazism, Hitler, Satanism,
Nietzsche, all kinds of subjects and historical characters with a connection to social issues, politics, propaganda and media.
And, FYI, I was a fan of Manson for over a decade (pre EMDM), I have written about him, read almost everything he wrote as an artist up until the
release of the EMDM album. I have also read several books about Charles Manson and his "family".
I happen to agree with much of what Marilyn Manson says about religion, media, culture and society in general, and that's because I educate myself
with more than the latest BS pop culture trash designed to do nothing more than occupy the senses.

You could almost imagine the sick reporter calculating the ratings if he could only get the little kid to cry.

twisted, but in good old America anything is acceptable for the ratings and entertainment - even the torturing of a little boy.
