Most if not all of what is written in the popular media is garbage. Now you know what happened to the kids who were on the high school newspaper. They may have gone to college, but their writing style is still the same and has not developed much at all.|
Local news - stories for children.
Ads on the telly - fables for children.
Physically grown up children, that is.
Think about something as prevalent as advertisements. Actors are portraying what are supposed to be real people in real life situations. And yet, they are actors.
The story is the key. Our brains are hardwired to be hooked by a narrative that has no internal inconsistencies. This is how you sell to the child-like masses.
Obama - an actor. His tired rap - a narrative. Relationship to reality - the children have no clue. If it sounds plausible, OK, then.
