Humor me here, please.
This WaPo article is a good example of propaganda in action. It relates to Trump nominating an Exxon CEO to head his State Department. The main article is “ExxonMobile chief is Trump’s pick…”
First, keep in mind that the media format, the way the news are presented in front pages and headlines, is not unintentional or by coincidence. Sub-messages are sent when you put images and headlines near each other, subconsciously linking them together. This is what experts in advertisement and propaganda say, I’m not inventing this.
In this case, note how the ‘concern’ about the CEO is cast in terms of the new anti-Putin war. It’s not that we know the Exxon CEO is a globalist who has no interest in humanity; who profits from destroying the environment, a liar and immoral capitalist. No, the problem with him is that he had ‘dealings’ with Putin.
I’m not defending Putin, he is not my friend. I’m only pointing at the shifting of the problem from having globalists running our government, who are unaccountable for their crimes against humanity (yes, humanity), precisely the type of people Trump supposedly ran against, to a Putin problem.
This is an example of the MSM ability to switch the public opinion away from what it once defined as ‘the problem’ with Trump (his pseudo-anti-globalism) towards a new ‘threat’. The media is in the process of crystallizing Putin as our main public concern, not a president’s cabinet filled with criminal globalists. We have our enemy, defined by the MSM. Now focus on him, please.
Once the GOP bends, as they will, for an almost trillionaire company Exxon and CEO, your personal opinion will follow public opinion that this CEO is good for the nation.
The WaPo editorial board already OKed this guy by saying he is “an efficient manager”, but their only ‘concern’ is that he ‘likes Putin’. Well, we can deal with that soon, can’t we? You have already been prepared to accept this guy.
Second, note the photo next to the article. Of course, it is Putin.
Third, note the Stars Wars photo next to Putin’s. Funny, isn’t it? It is not coincidence, people.
The WaPo has send you a subliminal message there.
You can figure it out by yourselves. I will let you with this thought:
That war on Putin, it is a movie. While you are watching it, Trump and the globalists are picking your pocket.
