Facebook mind control experiment was nothing compared to the deliberate manipulations of the mass media

mind

The internet erupted in protest last week over the revelation that Facebook ran a psychological experiment on 700,000 users designed to see just how easily information could be used to manipulate their emotions. "Facebook's ill-advised psychological experiment is alarming because it suggests that the Internet, in the wrong hands, can be a powerful weapon to subtly manipulate public opinion and promote a political agenda," wrote David Einstein of SFgate.com.

Everyone else chimed in with similar condemnations: The Wall Street Journal, ZDNet, CNN, USA Today and more. Messing with the emotions of people in a "grand social experiment" was wrong, they insisted.

But hold the presses for a second. Facebook may have run a mind control experiment on 700,000 people, but the mainstream media plays mind games on tens of millions every single day.

Every minute spent watching any mainstream media news program -- CNN, Fox News, etc. -- is a minute spent enduring a massive mind control experiment that has been played out on the public for decades. And what experiment is being played out, exactly? It depends on which brainwashing network you're tuned into.
