The power of the media is to incite our emotions and then to use those very emotions to serve their corporate interests. The media’s aspirations to intellectually appeal to the population seems to be an antiquated concept. It is no longer a question of whether the product or service does the job. The public has to be shamed, tempted, or frightened into buying something we never really knew we needed in the first place.

The good news here is that we have the power to change the system. We are the ones on the receiving end of all of this after all. We just need to stop believing all this absurdity and find the things that truly make us happy.
