oh i think we're living in a time where psyops are constant... organized and methodical.  if the purpose of a psyop is to either incite or to weaken resolve, there is certainly a tug of war depending on how and where you get your information.... furthermore, i doubt the folks who are 'doing' it realize what they're doing could be called a psyop- but it fits every criteria. 

.....but about this video:

most folks blame the faces of news- the brand- for their positions.  we call them Main Stream Media (MSM) as they purport to 'inform' us but instead 'manipulate' us.   what most folks don't realize is there are only a few 'news services' around.  these 'services' create programming for hundreds if not thousands of small time (usually local, small town type) outlets.  those outlets subscribe to the service and the service provides them with content- to include what scrolls across their teleprompters.  .... and that is what you see in the video.  

is it nefarious and/or part of a psyop (attempting manipulation of thoughts and positions) or is it just lazy station managers who farm out their job to cut costs and work force?  

the thing is... it could be both.  it's dangerous, by my reckoning, either way.  the door is opened for a nefarious group to enter using the mechanism of capitalism- those who identified and implemented a 'service' that was sold to the stations.  they can and likely do enter their own positions in their 'programming'.  

i wager if you were to ask any of those talking heads what they talked about on their news program immediately following the broadcast and while the stink of their breath that launched those words still hung in the air "what did you just say? can you explain what you just broadcast?" they would be totally lost... they are nothing but programmed machines at this point who read what scrolls on the prompter without thought whatsoever.  

the BIG networks do their own programming by and large.  they actually curate the 'news' and mold it to their narrative.  these small time operations rely on services- the 'wire' if you would- to create what they broadcast... beyond doubt there is opportunity to manipulate it just like the MSM does.. a group running one of those 'wire' services has every opportunity... and lazy cost conscious stations don't really care so long as they can fill their slots with seemingly engaging 'news'...

Monkey see monkey do we have some here who repeat the same talking points.

What's even more stupid they don't know we aren't a democracy we're a Republic.

There is always plenty of news to report.  It is the topics that they choose to report on that really makes the difference.  For example, the MSM was all over the Flynn thing until evidence came out that he was innocent, that the FBI withheld exculpatory evidence, etc.....then crickets.  So the MSM doesn't necessarily have to lie, it simply has to decide what to cover and when and what to ignore.

Scott Adams discusses this a lot.
