21. Infotainment is why propaganda monocultures dominate.

 

It's why all the outlets run the same bullshit stories at the same time. Whether purely commercial PR or top-down disinformation from a Pentagon-connected think tank, certain sources have the high ground. They inject the Bullshit of the Day (terror, murder, starlet slip, Irangonnakillyou, sports scandal, dumb thing someone said) and it rolls down the hill of the infotainment complex (which is about 90 percent of the media, at least, most of the time NPR as well).
