This is known as public relations propaganda: Working with General Motors, Netflix will put EVs into as many of its movies and shows as it can. There’s a Super Bowl ad to prove it. Source: Netflix Wants to Make Electric Cars Its Next Big Stars – CNET Netflix is doing this for free.
Two screen snapshots from January 31st illustrate how all news reports must include scary, fear inducing language. The goal is to keep you in a constant state of fear and anxiety.
The Guardian goes off the deep end. Again. It begins with the idea that maybe instead of focusing on fear, doom and gloom hysteria for marketing “ClimateCrisis”, perhaps focusing on solutions would be a better approach (actual research supports that). But that idea is lost by the next paragraph and their columnist launches into a word salad of nonsense. Sorry, I didn’t think The Guardian propaganda rag could stoop lower but they just did.
Social media bots now control and censor the media to ensure that everything is going to be proper and nice (except it doesn’t achieve that). The effect, as this publisher notes, is that social media bots are now the most powerful media barons in history.
The media loves the term “bomb cyclone”, a technical term from meteorology that sounds super scary. Most of the public has no idea what it means, and even with the official definition, it still is mostly meaningless to the public. But it sounds scary. And that’s the main point.
“60 Minutes” brings back Paul Ehrlich to make more scary fear-based predictions of the future. He’s been wrong about everything for more than 50 years – so why does the media do this nonsense?
UPI puts out a typical fear inducing propaganda piece of climate change – and its wrong before they even get to the first paragraph. Their photo illustration of Antarctica is, in their own database, an ice field on Svalbard, located near the North Pole – in the Arctic. But who needs accuracy when talking about climate change right? Just making stuff up encourages people to trust you, right?
FastCompany publishes a fabricated fake news story about “Twitter’s new Blue Check logo” – except this new logo, supposedly just introduced in December of 2022, was actually introduced in November of 2021. Like a whole year ago. UPDATE: They’ve acknowledged they were a year out of date.
Local TV News KTVZ, Bend, Oregon published a report that 10 seconds of fact checking would have been detected as an erroneous news report. While about 80% of flights were canceled due to a heavy snowstorm, they ran a report saying the snowplows worked great and “no commercial flights were impacted”. WHAT?
Reporters are oblivious to what an NDA is, and why they exist. They think Twitter enforcing employee agreement NDA’s is a violation of “free speech and transparency”. No one in the real world agrees with these idiot reporters. Can they be that obtuse?
