Unsafe Speech

I consider myself semi-political, and it probably shows. But I would like to take a step away from having an opinion, or a side, regarding the issues, and just talk about propaganda. I watched two programs this morning, (linked below) and I feel shame for journalism. The framing, the linguistic devices, the assertion of conclusion from the outset. My fear is the radicalization this causes. My own friends and family lauding themselves as superior, and casting aside the troubles of those they deem lessor. That’s what I see, that is what I fear coming for me next. The theme is, only trust us, no one else can have legitimate grievances; and remember, censorship is good, because it’s your idea. I laugh at how obvious this is. Doubleplusgood newsspeak
