Our Job" Is To "Control Exactly What People Think"

How profoundly arrogant. The stock market has its answer for such hubris, This how the media has actually lost over half the voting public and they will not be back.  In fact if this is what our talikng heads really think, then we are better off without them.

I see a bunch of stupid people full of their own pride , disdaining actual discourse as beneath them.

What ever happened with been a servant of the people whose attention you need in order to attract revenue?

MSNBC Anchor: "Our Job" Is To "Control Exactly What People Think"

During a lively discussion centered on fears that President Trump is "trying to undermine the media," MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski let slip the awesome unspoken truth that the media's "job" is to "actually control exactly what people think."

SCARBOROUGH: "Exactly. That is exactly what I hear. What Yamiche said is what I hear from all the Trump supporters that I talk to who were Trump voters and are still Trump supporters. They go, 'Yeah you guys are going crazy. He's doing -- what are you so surprised about? He is doing exactly what he said he is going to do.'"

BRZEZINSKI: "Well, I think that the dangerous, you know, edges here are that he is trying to undermine the media and trying to make up his own facts. And it could be that while unemployment and the economy worsens, he could have undermined the messaging so much that he can actually control exactly what people think. And that, that is our job."

As grabien points out, the comment failed to raise any eyebrows from her co-panelists. Instead, her co-host, Joe Scarborough, said that Trump's media antagonism puts him on par with Mussolini and Lenin...  

Total nonsense - how about a fact check for that.  both owned their media and used it as a powerful tool.
