As one social theorist famously observed, mass media don’t instruct the public on what to think–only what to think about. Yet today we can safely argue that such mass media in fact provide an entire reality for the spectator, and the less a critical observer one is the more susceptible they are to the former dynamic of being conditioned on what to think.
The readers and commenters at Memory Hole surely fall in to the latter camp. They also regularly bring other subject matter to the fore, even questioning the agendas behind the dominant “alternative” media’s reportage and commentary.
That’s one of the major things that makes the now-traditional MHB Free Form Fridays such a provocative forum. Thanks again to all of you for making this site a refuge for those who question the many taken-for-granted realities developed by the Western powers’ spinmeisters and their willing corporate presstitutes.
