Of Two Minds
This simple two-step process would greatly diminish the Ministry of Propaganda’s influence.
Here’s a radical idea: how about presenting the facts and letting voters decide who is “fit to serve”? Consider the context of this presidential election and the judgment call as to who is “fit to serve”:
1. Americans’ Trust in Mass Media Sinks to New Low (Gallup)
“Americans’ trust and confidence in the mass media ‘to report the news fully, accurately and fairly’ has dropped to its lowest level in Gallup polling history.”
2. Both the Republican and Democratic candidates have highly unfavorable ratings; they may well be the most disliked nominees in American history.
