Media Manipulation 101
How to manufacture a candidate
Creating support out of thin air
All kidding aside, this kind of manipulation is part and parcel of most “information” campaigns.
Task #1 is to create “evidence” of the widespread popular acceptance of an idea when little or none exists.
See how easy this is to do if you have just one well-placed media figure who is willing to get the ball rolling?
Oprah played this role for Obama and Fox News has played it for countless psycho causes and their spokespeople.
Unless they have a personal ax to grind, most news outlets simply accept the representations of other news outlets and repeat the story.
By the way, note how easy it is to manipulate video images to create a “reality” where none exists.
All the BRASSCHECK images were superimposed on existing video (but I’m sure you already knew that.)
