“If it’s true that nothing is more potent than an idea, then those who control the media can direct minds en masse.”
― Lance Morcan
In the media today, bias and rhetoric run rampant. In fact, most Americans can’t even name a neutral news source. In our busy lives, it seems that we only have the choices of: reading biased news and being manipulated by the media, or avoiding news and being out of the loop. Nowadays, if you want to be up-to-date and unaffected by media bias, you have to search through countless media sources and try to separate the rhetoric and rants from the actual news itself. For the majority of Americans, sifting through news sources all day to stay informed simply isn’t achievable.
