An image is circulating online that shows how the mainstream media has garnered viewers over the past 20 years. The three pillars of rhetoric are logos (logic), pathos (trust), and ethos (emotions). The media has been using all three of these persuasion tactics so that people are too afraid to look away from the TV as they may miss “breaking news” on the next disaster.

They prey upon our emotions (ethos) with fabricated narratives and stories. They prey upon our trust (pathos) with fake experts chiming in on every crisis and journalists pretending they still stand as unbiased, ethical providers of information. Logic (logos) has been completely undermined as independent thinking or questioning the mainstream narrative is now a criminal offense. The media wants you to be afraid to control your thoughts. Remember who controls the media.

Turn off the TV. Seek out the truth independently.
