Do you remember those endless BBC reports on Trump & Russian collusion? The certainty that he was guilty of that & much more. It was not just the BBC, in America CNN & MSNBC could talk of nothing but his guilt along with CBS & others nodding in agreement. The same goes for ABC in Australia. These are your mainstream media (MSM) outlets with huge influence! For me this not about politics or Donald Trump, this is about learning just how much the MSM collude with each other, are driven by their own agendas or those of the elites who consider the likes of you and me as sheep & cattle. If you trust the BBC as an unbiased news outlet then the propaganda & conditioning has already worked.
“Repeat a lie often enough and it becomes the truth”, is a law of propaganda often attributed to the Nazi Joseph Goebbels. Among psychologists something like this known as the “illusion of truth” effect. The MSM have become adept at delivering biased reporting as trustworthy news. The only good news in this respect is that more & more people are waking up to their antics and questioning everything they say.
Geoff Hutton was one such person, I did not always agree with him, or though a good number of times I did. Geoff thought for himself, challenged the narrative of the MSM, and tried to inform others. Sadly for the latter he was to often berated by the tiny minded anoraks that would rather just go through life in denial, rather than wake up & smell the coffee. Such is their loss, and for thinking people who are able to think outside of the box, Geoff is our loss.
