BRZEZINSKI: ‘OUR JOB’ IS TO CONTROL ‘EXACTLY WHAT PEOPLE THINK’
Controlling "exactly what people think" is the job of the media, MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski boldly declared Wednesday morning.I would imagine that this is the frustration they're feeling now that their monopoly on truth is being undermined.
While discussing President Trump's entreaties to the American people to remain skeptical of the press, Bzezinski worried that if the economy turns south, Americans may end up trusting him over the media.
"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," Brzezinski said. "And that, that is our job."~snip~
While they're blaming Trump the truth is that with the advent of the internet other sources for opinions on the news is available for people to read and consider. The legacy media just can't have that because they believe they're the only ones to be the gate keepers of truth.
But they have honestly mishandled that so badly that the public has opted to look at other sources.
Hopefully we're entering a new era where the public is treated like adults capable of making up their own minds on issues as opposed to being infantilized by arrogant elitist leftwing purveyors of propaganda.
