Media: Trump is Trying to Control People’s Thoughts, but That’s OUR Job

In criticizing President Trump, a mainstream media anchor accidentally conceded that the job of the media is to “control exactly what people think.”

The idea that the mainstream media is dishonest didn’t originate with President Trump, and it is a an idea that transcends party politics. Thinkers as disparate as Malcolm X, Howard Zinn, Noam Chomsky, Jesse Ventura, along with nearly 70% of the American population, have shown distrust toward the media.  





In fact, anyone who comes to the realization that the mainstream media is not really media at all but rather a relatively tiny handful of corporate interests — six to be exact — would also begin to distrust the media.

It doesn’t follow that all of these people, in stating factually that the media cannot be trusted, are thereby “trying to control” anyone’s thoughts.

As an example, most everybody now knows that the mainstream media lied about weapons of  mass destruction in Iraq to justify an illegal war and occupation — does that mean we’re all “trying to control” the thoughts of people? Nonsense.





The most revealing part of the anchor’s comment was when she added “and that [actually controlling exactly what people think], that is our job.”

Yes. We know.

The real point to be made here is that nobody should be in the business of controlling exactly what people think.

And the media is the main culprit, according to not only President Trump but virtually every political dissident who has ever thought about the matter carefully, regardless of whether they are “left” or “right.”

SCARBOROUGH: “Exactly. That is exactly what I hear. What Yamiche said is what I hear from all the Trump supporters that I talk to who were Trump voters and are still Trump supporters. They go, ‘Yeah you guys are going crazy. He’s doing — what are you so surprised about? He is doing exactly what he said he is going to do.'”

BRZEZINSKI: “Well, I think that the dangerous, you know, edges here are that he is trying to undermine the media and trying to make up his own facts. And it could be that while unemployment and the economy worsens, he could have undermined the messaging so much that he can actually control exactly what people think. And that, that is our job.”
