Cynical Citizens Already Crying “Hoax” in Serial Mail Bombing Case

This does not bode well for civility, folks, when our distrust in the media is at such a peak.

Mail Bomb

Over the course of the last few years, Americans have become a bit jaded.

Of course, the information revolution that our species has undergone over the course of the last few decades has a great deal to do with this.  We are now practically inundated with information at all times, much of it in the form of advertising.  In many ways, we are truly overexposed to advertising, and we can see it in social media today.

You see, in advertising there is an inherent competition to stand out and effectively hack your audience’s thought patterns to sell a product.  As newcomers learn the lessons of advertisers before them, the next guys will up the ante, making the effect on our brains that much more powerful.  This goes on and on, constantly exposing the population to these bombastic tactics, and forever altering the way in which we perceive the world around us.

Such is the case in the horrific tale of yesterday’s mail bombing scare, and the internet’s reaction to it.

First, there is this:

A woman insinuating that the bombs were fake?  That’s ludicrous, isn’t it?

Well, not according to Google search trends in the hours in which the story was developing:

Google

That spike in searches for the term “false flag” indicates that Americans have been so desensitized by the media that they immediately began wondering if CNN was somehow in on their own bombing.

This does not bode well for civility, folks, when our distrust in the media is at such a peak.

And, just to be perfectly clear, I am not insinuating that there is any reason to believe foul play outside of the official story so far.  I am merely reporting on the direction in which our nation is headed based on these odd reactions.

Bannon Testimony has DOJ Spooked, with Department Pushing to Silence Media Magnate

Cowards.

Published

on

While some Democrats have applauded the boldness of the select committee investigating January 6th, there are undercurrents of concern about the group’s actions beginning to surface.

For starters, their willingness to call some of the right wing media’s most potent orators to the witness stand, where they will almost certainly befuddle and obliterate those who seek to do harm to their reputations.

In other words:  Subpoenaing Roger Stone, Alex Jones, and Steve Bannon is likely an exampled of the committee biting off more than they can realistically chew.

It seems as though the Department of Justice agrees with this assessment, and they are taking action to prevent the Democrats on the committee from embarrassing themselves.

Prosecutors have accused former President Donald Trump’s ex-adviser Steve Bannon of attempting to try his criminal case through the media instead of in court and have asked a judge to limit what Bannon can release publicly throughout the case, according to a new filing in DC District Court.

Bannon is trying to convince a judge not to bar him and his lawyers from sharing documents he receives from the Justice Department with the public before his trial.

The DOJ prosecutors said in the filing Sunday some of those records must stay private while the case is pending, because they include internal communications between congressional staffers and notes of FBI interviews with witnesses who could testify against Bannon at trial.

The DOJ would rather work in darkness.

“Allowing the defendant to publicly disseminate reports of witness statements will have the collateral effect of witness tampering because it will expose witnesses to public commentary on their potential testimony before trial and allow a witness to review summaries of other witnesses’ statements recounting the same event or events,” the prosecutors wrote on Sunday.

The move reeks of cowardice on behalf of the Biden administration, and flies in the face of transparency and understanding.
