Hopefully, you are not one of the billions of people on this planet who believe all the propaganda that is sold to them through the use of media outlets. Of course, we are affected by the media, because they have learned to mix truth with fiction to make their lies seem more believable. Some people cannot imagine that all these thousands of media outlets are pumping them fictitious information for simply the purpose of controlling their minds. That's the perfect way to make slaves. Let's face it, we are all affected by the power of the media. In fact, Malcolm X said it the best!
“The media's the most powerful entity on earth. They have the power to make the innocent guilty and to make the guilty innocent, and that's power. Because they control the minds of the masses.”
The media has purposely turned innocent victims of violent crimes into hoodlums, thugs, and criminals, whether or not they had one arrest on their record. This is how tricky the media is. We foolishly fall for their tricks repeatedly. Everything works according to plan.
The media always puts spins on the information. unfortunately, the internet is not really much different. Even though more Black media outlets emerge, it's the white outlets that have retained the attention of the masses. This is one power that black people should not surrender so willingly, because as usual, we are giving up a huge power that is easily accessible and that can be used to inform people of opinions that are not usually available on such a large scale.
