21. but in some ways though

they only get that power if they "agree" to only use it in certain ways, or the people who are already inclined to use it in certain way are the ones who get the power.

Although, the anti-war show MASH was certainly popular.

But their platform is paid by Madison Avenue and if they do not show the fistfights and the boobies, then they will lose viewers to the people who do. Although, aren't both of those drawing in a young male audience?

And "yes WE can" was popular too, but what happened to it? it seemed like it secretly meant "yes we can - fool most of the people". Nobody talked much about what we were trying to do, except elect a black President. Now we need to elect a woman, is the theme for 2016. But we are gonna elect Margaret Thatcher, not Mother Jones.
