Worse, they're only able to get away with it because over 150 million of us have the capacity of a 5 year old. No offense to 5 year olds. We are a nation of sheep.

Thank god for alternative news sources, such as RT.com...yeah, yeah, I know the Russians run it.

Sadly true. I work with many people who are quite intelligent, but woefully uninformed. It is a direct result of the news sources they consult. I often tell them things that are basic knowledge here on FR and see their faces freeze ever so slightly, a telltale indication that they did not know what I've told them. The media doesn't have to lie (though they do); their best deceptive skill is omission. I work with people who think Sarah Palin said 'this stupid thing' and Michelle Bachmann said 'that stupid thing' but when I tell them that Sheila Jackson-Lee thought the Mars Pathfinder drove over to where Neil Armstrong left the American flag, they say 'Who is Sheila Jackson-Lee'? Selective 'reporting'.
