The mainstream media is controlled and owned by about 5 companies. The purpose of a sitcom on tv is solely to get ratings. This is no different then the “news” department. “News” is nothing more than entertainment and sensationalism designed to get ratings and please advertisers. The average American watches over 5 hours of tv PER DAY. Through this medium, they create an artificial narrative that shapes our culture by instilling fear, distrust of each other and scarcity which then creates a pro-war, interventionist mentality and keeps us dependent on the “savior” of government to protect us from the “terrorists” and each other.
