I knew it was over in 1973 when a colleague returned from his IU journalism class crowing about how advocacy journalism was the wave of the future.
The Almighty Algorithm, who is staking out his claim for world domination right now, has instructed his ping algorithmic minions to lockdown all UK citizens from freedom day onwards (you can't say he doesn't have a sense of irony), and he has also instructed his media algorithmic minions to step up the propaganda worldwide, there must be total consistency globally to make sure the echochamber is not breached. We must remember there are are no humans or felines involved in this, so stop blaming poor old beleaguered Saint Anthony. Frankenstein had a similar problem, we won't be able to unplug the Almighty Algorithm now, while he runs amok.
And not one mention about the 50,000 undocumented and unvaccinated migrants released into the interior of this country. And yet unvaxxed citizens are catching all kinds of trash talking from the E-lites.
Here's my current "poster boy" major media piece that is the very type of "misinformation" the Establishment rails against, or that got Alex Berenson cancelled, for the matter. If you google "99% unvaccinated", you'll see the core claim appeared widely in the press in early September. The near-identical wording suggests a common source, which I assume is typical of most "news" (propaganda would be more accurate!) of this ilk.
What the article doesn't tell you is that the sampling period is most likely cherry-picked. In the first place, eight months (Jan - Sep. 2021) is a ridiculously long time. Nor does it tell you two very significant facts: the mass vaccination campaign was just beginning, the jabs having been approved in Dec. 2020, and also that the peak of the winter "flu" season (thru. March) was front-loaded into the sample. Too bad they didn't use the same period from 2020, and they could have claimed "100% unvaccinated"!
stealing and using....if I may! Thank you!
I am pretty surprised they don't just report that as us public has more trust in media than over 100 countries
Most of today’s MSM Journos are little more than ideological activists with a healthy splash of Dunning Kruger Effect as the proverbial cherry on top!
media is propaganda machine,
So true....the media has always had an agenda but it has become more open in recent years. Not sure if it was Trump, changing social attitudes, or just obliviousness on the part of many journalists. I never trust anything of a political nature that I read from a single news source without checking another alternative source. I trust the US media even less than our public health officials!
