The "fake news" is that we've never been healthier, healthcare costs are under control and our economy has fully "recovered."
heard a lot about "fake news" from those whose master narratives are
threatened by alternative sources and analyses. We've heard less about
the master narratives being threatened: the fomenting of mass hysteria, which turns the populace into an easily manipulated and managed herd, and induced insanity, a longer-term marketing-based narrative that
causes the populace to ignore the self-destructive consequences of
accepting the fad/ ideology/ mindset being pushed as "good" and
terms of "fake news," it's hard to beat the mainstream media and its
handlers' attempts to whip up mass hysteria via unsubstantiated claims
that Russian hackers working for Putin deprived Hillary of the
presidency. The campaign to spark mass hysteria was launched with
great precision, unleashing the overwhelming forces of endless
repetition (the marketer's favorite tool) and appeals to national
security authorities: The C.I.A., F.B.I, and all the other security
agencies purportedly concur that Russia "hacked" (whatever that means)
the U.S. election.
