Public opinion is not that hard to sway, if you control mass media. The media blitz on the war in Iraq and the need for the bailout are examples of that.

1. Even during the Vietnam War
the media was pro-war. It was more subtle then and there actually were some liberal people with a little influence on content. But protestors against the war were always shown in a negative light. Now anti-war demonstrations are not shown at all. This illustrates how far to the right the media has moved today. The media is now in lock step. MSNBC has enough liberal content to make the viewer believe they are getting the real unbiased thing. But they are not. This country is in real trouble and it sure ain't because Obama is a Kenyan, Muslim socialist.
