Every now and then I get into a cheerful quarrel with a commenter about whether media should be singular or plural.
Here’s another demonstration of the media as a singular entity, an echo chamber in which the various personalities adhere to one talking point with message discipline worthy of the Soviet Union, North Korea or an Apple marketing campaign.
The talking points go forth and everyone repeats them. While the lefties pretend that they’re hearing something original in the echo chamber.
Anderson Cooper compares Trump to mob boss – CNN
Trump the mob boss wants protection – Washington Post
Donald Trump’s Mafia Mind Set – The Atlantic
President Trump brings mafia ethics to the GOP – Washington Post
Trump’s Team Keeps Using Mafia-inspired language – Time
All the president’s wiseguys – Newsday
Forget whether you agree or disagree. Just note the interchangeability. It’s all one echo chamber. Jeffrey Goldberg, Anderson Cooper, The Atlantic, Time, the Washington Post and Pravda. A dozen of the top outlets saying the same thing in different ways.
The idea that we have anything resembling a free press is nonsensical. This isn’t a free press. It’s a propaganda press pushing the same narrative using the same talking points.
I wonder what next week’s talking point by the pravda press will be.
