"Når fagfolk udsender den ene absurditet efter den anden, begynder de at se, at virkningerne faktisk styrker deres egen autoritetsposition. Det er en åbenbaring. Det er også en fortsættelse af traditionen for Trickster-arketypen. For eksempel, med bare et par mindre justeringer, kan Brian Williams ses som den snu Reynard the Fox ..."

Set fra elite-tv-nyheder afhænger kontrol af dets tilhørers sind af det, der høfligt kaldes 'kognitiv dissonance':

Når værten oplæser en nyhed, ser seeren et åbenlyst hul, gennem hvilket han kunne køre en lastbil.

Historien giver ingen mening, men alligevel præsenteres den som en intetsigende kendsgerning. Den betroede nyhedsvært har helt klart ikke noget problem med det.

Hvad skal seeren gøre? Han oplever en modsigelse, en "dissonans."

For eksempel dette års influenzavaccine. Den amerikanske regering har indrømmet, at vaccinen er rettet mod en influenzavirus, der ikke cirkulerer i befolkningen. Selv ved traditionelle standarder er vaccinen derfor ubrugelig.

Men pointen er, at CDC siger, at folk skal tage vaccinen alligevel.

Ankeret videregiver al denne information - og sætter aldrig spørgsmålstegn ved situationen, torpederer aldrig regeringen for at have anbefalet vaccinen.

Den gennemsnitlige seer mærker ha han bliver halet med, en følelse af ubehag, et skub og træk. Vaccinehistorien er idioti (på den ene side), men den betroede vært accepterer det (den anden side).


Kommentar: Delvist oversat af Sott.net fra Television news and mind control through cognitive dissonance

The top chiefs of news — and top propaganda operatives — anticipate cognitive dissonance. In a real sense, they want it to happen. They make it happen. Over and over.


Because it throws the viewer into a tailspin. And in that mental state, in his effort to resolve the contradiction, he will normally choose to...give in. Surrender. Believe in the anchor. It's the easier path.

The viewer will even doubt his own perception. "I see no good reason for Building 7 to collapse, but the news doesn't bring that up, so...it must be me."

This is the power of the news. It presents absurdities and then moves right along, as if nothing has happened.

For the viewer, it's the equivalent of: "Don't you see that pile-up of smashed cars on the freeway, and the smoke? No? Oh well, it must be me. I guess I was wrong. There isn't any pile-up."

The introduction of contradiction, dissonance, and absurdity parading as ordinary reality is an intentional feature of brainwashing.

On the nightly news, the anchor reports that US government debt has risen by another three trillion dollars. He then cuts to a statement from a Federal Reserve spokesman: the new debt level isn't a problem; in fact, it's sound monetary policy; it strengthens the economy.

The viewer, caught up in this absurdity, tries to make sense of it, then gives up and passively accepts it. Brainwashing.

Smoothly transitioning from this story, the anchor relays information from the CDC: vaccination rates must achieve 90% in the population, in order to protect people from dangerous viruses. The viewer thinks, "Well, my daughter is already vaccinated, so if she comes into contact with a child who isn't vaccinated, why would that be a problem for her? Why does 90% of the population have to be vaccinated to keep her safe? She's already vaccinated."

The viewer wrestles with this absurdity for a moment, then gives in and accepts what the CDC and the anchor are saying. More passivity. More brainwashing.

The anchor moves right along to the next story: "The US is experiencing one of the coldest winters in history, further evidence of the effects of global warming, according to scientists at the United Nations."

The viewer shakes his head, tries to deal with this dissonance, surrenders, and accepts what he is hearing. Deeper passivity is the result. Deeper brainwashing.

On and on it goes, day after day, month after month, year after year, on the news.

Contradiction, absurdity, dissonance; acceptance, surrender, passivity.

The same general formula is used in interrogations and formal mind control. It adds up to disorientation of the target.

Most disoriented people opt for the lowest- common-denominator solution: give in; accept the power of the person of authority.

When it comes to the news, that person is the anchor, the narrator, the presenter of reality.

He sows the ground with seeds of dissonance. That is how he gains compliance from the viewer.

If the news anchor experiences moments of conscience and self-doubt, he can tell himself he is doing the work of a journalist: he's presenting information obtained from reliable sources. If these sources are spouting contradictions and absurdities, so be it. "Nothing better is available."

Among the many supporters of conventional news is the education system. Most teachers never learn logic, and they don't teach it. The result? Their students never gain the ability or the courage to reject the news and its dissonances.

What little these students gain from 12 or 16 years of schooling they eventually sacrifice on the altar of consensus reality — as broadcast every night on the screen before them.

In the face of absurdities that never add up or make sense, they surrender their minds.

If you gain enough distance from the news and watch it every night and pick it apart and see every dissonance, you realize the news is utterly Surreal. However, it is sold as utterly Normal. That is its trump card — the ability to sell itself as the ultimate in Normalcy.

That is its greatest achievement: overcoming its deepest contradiction.
