One the problems with living in a society that is based upon consensus reality is that agents can and do alter the public censensus in order to make specific agendas the de facto truth.
One of, if not the, worst offenders in this is the Lamestream Media. For generations they’ve manipulated the public’s collective consciousness in order to shape reality to suit whatever their agendas were at that time. A perfect, current example of the media’s deliberate bias is how they “carefully” presented some controversial remarks that a reporter solicited from Cliven Bundy.
On the left you have the 3:13 minute long, full commentary by Cliven Bundy. On the right you the 1:29 minute long, heavily edited clip that the MSM chose to air and put up for public intake.

Now this doesn’t come as a surprise. The media has long held that is occupies and exalted position, one with the right and responsibility to use their power to shape society. Their painting Cliven Bundy as a horrid racist is just the latest of a long series of lies, misinformation campaigns, and carefully chosen topic to broadcast.
It’s disturbing but it’s also something that the majority of Americans are used to and used to filtering out and compensating for. What’s more disturbing and harder to deal with are the increase in the prevalence and extremity of the Lamestream Media’s bias and the fact that they are no longer shilling just their own agenda. Others are now scripting the news.
Who’s Scripting US News?
No, under the Obama Regime the press isn’t exactly a free press any longer. The various handlers and overseers of Obama have had the boy use any and all methods that he could get away to get a leash around the collective necks of the media in order to coerce them into airing the Regime’s messages and only the Regime’s messages.
That’s a sad and scary situation. It was bad enough having to deal with press that was a largely independent enemy of the American people. Having a press that is now little more than the propaganda corps of an enemy regime is far, far worse.
