The Epoch Times illustrated that the Lying "Canned Propaganda" Media has become "basically a Joke" in the article "Not Just CNN: Mainstream Media Is on the Ropes"

Time Magazine appears unwittingly to have explained why the liberal Covid government-media complex is a joke that keeps lying by showing how "Scientists can now explain why lying begets more lying — it has to do with how the brain reacts to fibs":
Once a liar, always a liar, the old saying goes. Turns out there’s some scientific truth to that: researchers have tracked down how the brain makes lying easier as the untruths build up, providing some biological evidence for why small lies often balloon into ever larger ones.
In a study published in Nature Neuroscience, Tali Sharot from the department of experimental psychology at University College London and her colleagues devised a clever study to test people’s dishonest tendencies while scanning their brains in an fMRI machine...
... “Part of the emotional arousal we see when people lie is because of the conflict between how people see themselves and their actions,” Sharot said during a briefing discussing the results. “So I lie for self-benefit, but at the same time it doesn’t fit the way I want to view myself, which is as an honest person. It’s possible that we learn from the arousal signal…with less emotional arousal, perhaps I’m less likely to see the act as incongruent with my own self perception.”
The researchers were even able to map out how each lie led to less amygdala activation and found that the decrease could predict how much the person’s dishonesty would escalate in the next trial. Biology seems to back up the warnings parents give to their kids: that one lie just leads to another. [https://time.com/4540707/lying-lies-brain/]
The editor-at-large of The Epoch Times, Roger Simon, illustrated that the lying "canned propaganda" media has become a joke in the article "Not Just CNN: Mainstream Media Is on the Ropes":
Let’s take a tour d’horizon, but first… CNN.
A widely discussed article by media critic Joe Concha concludes:
“The collapse of CNN is now complete: 9 out of 10 viewers, gone. Its top-rated anchor, Chris Cuomo, gone. Its network president, gone. Its integrity in shambles.
“Oh, and new management coming in that is signaling big-time changes … changes that may bring CNN back to the proud network it once was before [network President] Jeff Zucker destroyed it.”
Actually, it doesn’t matter who replaces management at CNN because the real ownership hasn’t changed—WarnerMedia and, above that group, AT&T.
And above AT&T, as with the other two giant corporations who control the vast majority of the mainstream media landscape, The Walt Disney Co. and Comcast, their true capo di tutti capi is China—because the communist-controlled nation is the one whose mammoth audience they crave.
That’s the bad news, but the good news is those same corporations are increasingly behind the times.
You are here, reading this, not listening to their canned propaganda.
And not just here, of course. You are reading blogs, alternative media, and listening to podcasts. Who has more influence these days, The New York Times or Joe Rogan? Well, it’s a toss-up, and that’s just one guy.
You are also surfing the internet for other information, making up your own mind. The possibilities for gaining that information are growing in number and in strength by the day.
What intelligent person watches the traditional evening network news anymore? Who believes that the aforementioned NY Times is the “newspaper of record”? That’s basically a joke now to vast numbers of people...
... Chairman Mao was undoubtedly lying (and creating mayhem) when he said, “Let a hundred flowers bloom,” but the thought being expressed was correct. If I were to write my own Little Red Book today, I would say in terms of news and a lot of things: Learn from the Canadian truckers! (In other words, do it on your own.)
Yes, it’s a bit self-serving, but as a subscriber or even a reader of The Epoch Times, you are participating in this ongoing media revolution that’s truly picking up steam after more than a decade.
I think back now to the days when we started Pajamas Media (2004) and how we were accused of being “amateurs in our pajamas” by a CBS executive, for daring to question their anchor Dan Rather’s lies about George W. Bush’s National Guard papers. (We couldn’t have been more correct and Rather was shortly gone.)
In the parlance of another day, “we’ve come a long way, baby.”
Pretty soon, we may have a different problem. What happens when you become “the man”? Let’s hope we handle it better. We should.
