There is a war on...A war for your mind...


... another whacko who propagates insane news from Mosc ... from nowhere.

If Eagle Snack or Cap'n Organ shows up, you can have another one of your famous circle jerks.

Media should just report the news......not create it!

Agreed, but I doubt that the genie will ever be put back in the bottle. So people should revert back to the mantra, "don't believe everything you read."

Fake thread



That's funny coming from a Faux fan.


It would be strange to see a thread where Cannuck actually makes a point without his usual trolling. Unlikely, but strange.

Yes, I clearly don't want your mind. Far too much drug damage.

Not sure if you can see it from inside your own head, but when you think about it
;)
that would mean you must be fairly sick in there

I pretty much have been doing that for decades. IT is impossible to tell the disinformation from the truth. Those that think in black and white are the most disillusioned of all.

But I don't buy into the conspiracy stuff either, Cliffy.

But clearly if you watch the news, even through the lunacy of what's posted on this site, the patterns of sensationalism and the masses who eat it up is very easy to spot.

I have worked in Newspapers and magazines and I know that "the news" is just filler between the ads designed to sell more ads. Also, any "news" is slanted to the bias of the owner and publisher. There is not one media that is not slanted to influence the mindset of the consumer. It takes a lot of work to weed through the mountains of BS to get even a glimmer of truth.

Maybe, you should be consuming a better class of news. There is good reportage and analysis out there. Not everything is pre-digested for consumption by the Proles
