This is one of those things that I already knew was true, but seeing it so blatantly displayed makes me feel like like I am finding out about it for the first time.
CIA is getting lazy
“It’s just a script whats the problem lol” the problem is that Fox, CNN, CBS, and all the other channels repped here, despite claiming to be different companies with different viewpoints, all had the exact same script, word for word, to push the exact same viewpoint that smaller, independent news outlets are Fake News and “A Threat To Our Democracy.”
The fact that they have scripts isn’t the problem. The problem is they all, each and every one, have the exact same script down to the letter and in some cases the fucking inflection, which basically reads “small news stations are untrustworthy and a Threat to your Way Of Life, only trust Us, We Are Verified.”
i’m straight up gonna have nightmares of this hive of newspeople repeating ‘this is extremely dangerous to our democracy’
If anybody asks what we’re fighting against, show them this video.
IT GETS WORSE.
Sinclair Broadcasting Group, The company behind the script, is lobbying the government to take control of EVEN MORE stations. If they get their way they will have one of their stations in nearly every home in America. And the contract most of these anchors are locked into makes it pretty much impossible or at the very least very expensive and career-destroying for them to refuse to read the scripts.
This is a broadcasting network with unchecked control over exactly what it said on private broadcasting stations. They were likely taking advantage of the innate trust most people have for their local news anchors. National news might not be trustworthy but surely you can trust your friendly local anchors right? Wrong. You are being fed exactly what a much larger government sanctioned entity wants you to know, and if it doesn’t terrify you, it should.
