Some say I'm interesting.
This is a Haiku.
In June 2003 a Washington Post-ABC News poll found that about 1 in 4 Americans (incorrectly) believed Iraq had used weapons of mass destruction during the recent war with the United States.  A separate poll in the same month found that 34% of Americans believed the United States had already found weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.  In September another poll found that 69% of Americans believed Saddam Hussein was personally involved in 9-11.  Even the Bush administration has been forced to admit that these claims are not true. These misconceptions are the outcome of a system of thought control called ideological hegemony. Hegemony operates through many mechanisms including the media, education system, newspeak and others with the primary function of maintaining support for the dominant socio-economic system in the United States.
In all class societies, the ruling class can maintain control through violence and/or ideology. If the majority can be persuaded that the rule of the ruling class is legitimate then it can be maintained with less violence. Examples of ideologies that serve this function include the divine right of kings, social Darwinism and Marxism-Leninism. All of them acted to legitimize the rule of specific elites in certain societies and helped those elites maintain power. Some hierarchical societies rely more on violence, others rely more on ideology. The United States relies more on ideology, although a certain degree of force is used.
So remember when that tea partier flew a plane into an IRS building in Houston Texas? There is a certain word that wasn’t used to describe him. Remember when those white christian terrorists in the Michigan Hutaree militia were arrested for stashing homemade bombs? That word again, wasn’t applied to them in the media. Yet not only are animal rights activists labeled terrorists by the media but they even get an Act named after them; It’s called the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act.
There’s a good example of real media bias. Pay attention and stop whining about it leaning slightly to one side of the spectrum that has been pre-defined as rational debate and start questioning the basis of the spectrum itself and what its very existence says about bias in the media.
