We all agree here that we can’t trust the alternative media, especially the screaming Alex Jones types.
It’s useful to think of the mainstream media as controlled opposition as well.
So what is Goodman doing at Standing Rock? Her job. She is controlled opposition. She has to cover these events, but in such a way that no movement arises, and that we never really get to the bottom of it.
That is the whole point of controlled opposition. If we had outright censorship, where media was prohibited from covering protesters, people might become aware how thorough and deeply embedded censorship is in our country.
