Corbett Report: Episode249 - How to Manufacture (or Suppress) Outrage

Listen to @CorbettReport Radio on @RBNlive Weeknights at 7 Eastern Time
Corbett Report: Episode249 - How to Manufacture (or Suppress) Outragefrom corbett report: Sandra Fluke. Justice for Trayvon. Kony 2012. The 24/7 news cycle is dominated by incessant coverage of topics of little significance. Reported in a completely decontextualized manner, the public flits from story of the week to story of the week so that nothing is left in their wake but catchphrases and fleeting pop culture references. This is a method of control, and it can be used both to concentrate the public on boogeymen and distract us from the real dangers. Join us this week on The Corbett Report as we examine how the would-be social engineers manufacture (and suppress) outrage.
