On this episode of Those Conspiracy Guys we delve deep into the septic tank of modern news media and examine what’s now called ‘Fake News’, but we have always known it as Propaganda. A tool invented by sociologists using psychological techniques to convice the public to think and act against their will.
We talk about the scientific techniques and the origins of the idea of manipulation of media throughout history. We all learned in school that Hitler had a propaganda machine, but what is not told to impressionable young kids is that pretty much every type of media uses a form of manipulation in the delivery of its message.
The man behind this is Edward Bernays and we talk about him and his techniques as well as discussing Chomsky and Hermann and their Propaganda Model and how the filters they describe are at work in our modern news media.
We also give Trump his few minutes, because you cant talk about bullshit without talking about The Donald. We discuss the Womens March and the Inauguration protests and the future of the mainstream media in this hotbed of polarised politics.
Presented by Gordo, Paul and Steve
