"I think you are wrong there, because it is not their goal to let people repeat them."

Sadly the media controls the direction of the US. It is absolutely opinion media`s goal to have their followers repeat their lies so that they can change the direction the country is headed. But more so so they can distract the parrots with non issues while they do the real damage. It is a slight of hand.

Oblivia, I pulled that comment back within a few seconds after reading what you had to say more clearly. You must have refreshed right at the same time.

Oblivia, you have blown my mind with your passive statement. I run a web site that helps people remove opinion media from their lives. This is the piece I was missing. I`m going to add a section to help people identify if they are passive and to help get rid of passive aggressive behavior. Thank you.

"Opinion Media repeats and repeats and repeats and repeats talking points until their audience repeats and repeats them."

I think you are wrong there, because it is not their goal to let people repeat them. It could brainwash people yes, but they repeat the same thing because that`s the way they want to report about it/think about it and that view (most of the time) doesn’t change that easily. Also because they keep finding ‘facts’ to support their view.

You are right about the fact that people mistake sensationalism for actual news and that opinion media does not follow the standards of journalism. But as I said before, even journalism is biased because people produce it. Yet by far not as much as with opinion media.

Removing opinion media is not the solution. You need to look into both sides before you can state a well thought opinion.

"So good of you that it took you almost 40 years (or more) for you to start getting active Markust123 and let yourself get "brainwashed" for that long..."

Actually it was only a couple a years. I went through a bed spell. Being in a negative cycle the negativity of Opinion media drew me in.

"It`s not the media who is brainwashing people, it`s passive people who only selectively pay attention to certain media that support their look of the world and do not actively look further."

But it is that certain media that these people watch that is brainwashing them. It certainly isn`t journalism. What it is is sensationalism. And it is I believe the worst thing to happen to this country. Nothing has divided our citizens like opinion media. I think you are spot on that it is mostly passive people sucked into opinion media. I let myself be beaten down for the first time in my life. I was very passive when Opinion media had a hold on me.

Altaru, no sweat at all, and thanks.

Fancy: we going to tear up Long Beach or what? We should photoblog that sh*t in some format. Heck, even a live feed. Fancy and Davy ripping up Long Beach? Seriously?

It has the potential to be either f*cking epic, or entirely lame. Let`s shoot for epic.

What people often forget is that the media content is produced by people and therefore bound to be biased.
The media are not there to let you think a certain way, but are there to let you (actively) think about a certain subject that matters (or not; in your opinion).

So good of you that it took you almost 40 years (or more) for you to start getting active Markust123 and let yourself get "brainwashed" for that long...

I`m with you GothicQueen. Political talk flame wars are a huge waste of time and energy. People are so brainwashed by opinion media that they have been reduced to puppets. I have been opinion media free for 14 months and counting. I couldn`t be happier.

Everytime i see a post about politics or anything "Debate worthy" i don`t even bother to read the link and/or comments". I don`t partake in internet debating/flaming anymore. Waste of time and energy. Now i stick to the lulz and music.

"The political talk comes and goes. it`s not planned or plotted, just happens. same with the casual influx of boobie posts."

The amount of political posts seams to be the same it`s just I`ve noticed people aren`t being such jerks with the baiting and such. Although with this being an election year I expect that will change.

Yet the teens that occupy the back closet of I-A-B Chat scare the sh*t out of me. Haven`t been there in 6 months, and the therapy`s going to take years.

Whoops, sorry Markust. Like I said, been tied up all day (unsuccessfully) fixing computers. Which I`m apparently an expert in, with me being a geologist and all...

Anyways, Lula`s been banned into the adminisphere and all posts deleted. I also made sure I registered her IP address with every dwarf/torture/geriatric porn website I could find for a daily newsletter, and allowed sharing with affiliates. Hope that alleviates some of the personal frustration to our I-A-B regulars. F*cking hate spammers: thanks for the heads-up!
