Adam Luebke's insight:

If Edward Bernays, in the 1930s, was so successful in manipulating the thoughts and actions of massive amounts of people, and shaping the ways they viewed the world and their own importance in it, what else is possible today with the vast intelligence gathering technology used by the NSA through popular websites and social media sites, such as Facebook, Google, and Yahoo!?

Mainstream #media losing all credibility. Thank goodness for the alternative press

Mainstream #media losing all credibility. Thank goodness for the alternative press | Edward Bernays & Mass Media Manipulation | Scoop.it
In another sign of the weakening "influence" of the mainstream media, not one of the major scandals currently swirling around the Obama Administration were broken by what you could fairly call the establishment press.

In the case of the Justice Department’s targeting of AP reporters and editors, even The Associated Press failed to break that story; it only emerged after the Justice Department notified the AP what had occurred, so essentially, the department tattled on itself.

And Benghazi? Again, nope. Even though there was plenty of smoke there, the mainstream media – which has been in bed with Obama since day one of his initial campaign – took a pass en mass. There were a few exceptions, most notably Jake Tapper and Sharyl Attkission, but other than that, only Republican members of Congress and Fox News have been aggressively seeking the truth about what actually took place there when our ambassador, Christopher Stevens, was killed and brutalized.

Is the increasing popularity of alternative news sources a better way for Americans to keep informed about their nation's politics, economy, and their government's role in world politics? What are the dangers of gathering news from independent, alternative news sites, as opposed to mainstream media sources?
