Since the topic is the power of mass media, I should add that we have lots of choices in the media: television, newspapers, radio, internet. What we choose as a source to get our information from is entirely up to the individual. You cannot blame the media entirely, although I will be the first to admit that much of the news is largely biased and sensationalized for ratings and profit.
I get much of my news from Vox, Huffington Post, Al Jazeera, the Guardian, the Onion, the Daily Show and certain journalists on MSNBC. But I would guess those would be unknown news sources to many conservatives who get their news from Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, Duck Dynasty, the 700 Club and the Christian Broadcasting Network.
But we do have the freedom of choice...just the touch of a button.
