The American people don’t get nearly the credit they deserve when it comes to the mainstream media.
We’re played for dummies more often than not, with the talking heads on the television constantly goading us into some mild form of hatred for one another. The medium thrives on conflict, with sensationalism often being the key to ratings success and economic fortune, so dividing the nation down the false dichotomy of right versus left works.
But they’ve gone too far, and We The People are waking up to the truth.
Amid all of this manufactured outrage, Americans are tuning out, and sending a message to the infotainment industry that enough is enough.

Sanjay Gupta is safe, but much of the rest of CNN’s Atlanta-based staff that covers health care found out Tuesday they are getting pink slips — only a few weeks after the network called mass layoffs a “crazy rumor.”
Specific details were not yet known, but a source told Fox News that “basically the whole division” will lose their jobs.
CNN was unwilling to comment on the matter.
TVNewser, a media watchdog site started by CNN’s Brian Stelter, managed to get confirmation from the network — just in time for a Friday news dump.
“As part of the normal course of business, our newsgathering team made a small restructure earlier this week that ultimately impacts 6-7 employees within CNN’s Health Unit,” a CNN spokesperson told TVNewser’s A.J. Katz.
Many health department staffers met with human resources on Tuesday. Katz noted that correspondent Elizabeth Cohen is also safe.
The move comes after social media corporations began a mass censorship campaign targeting conservative news and opinion figures.
The CNN debacle could very well be backlash by Americans who choose to remain vigilant in the face of such political discrimination.
