As long as they can rouse disliking for either the right or wrong side of the story is what I believe their interests lye. Too many times you have people complain the news is too conservative, too liberal, to impartial, when they really just want you to have bitter feelings for someone or something in order to 'help' lead you into the 'right direction', preferably their own. Call it propaganda or conspiracy theory, but pay real close attention to the news next you see it. I'm not talking about the weather or the cooking specials either. The ploy in the language they use: what they don't say is as much a factor in getting you to lean towards a certain belief or idea as the facts, opinions, hype and danger they throw at you everyday. Call me crazy, call me pathetic, but this is what the news means to me.
Whose special interest are you buying into today?
