Examples of Echo Chambers - Part 2 (Plus Money Trail and Fox News Lies)

The video below is an example of an echo chamber that extends to ALL of the US's mass media News networks. I personally believe that this is an echo chamber that is only activated from time to time as regular activation would create problems in credibility. Its better to have two sides fighting to keep the masses attention/distracted. That's how the gladiator system of Rome distracted the populace while the countries social and economic structures fell around them.

1. Every media channel ignores its mass media hype for the same person, Ron Paul.

2. Ron Paul is against invasion/war and doesn't attempt to brush the lies of Iraq war under the rug.

Yet Another Rupert Murdoch Media Echo Chamber

Above story only carried on Fox News/NY Post (Rupert Murdoch owned media)

Fox News is large enough in the US to be it's own echo chamber (and the fact that many false beliefs originate from Fox News broadcasts proves this - see Examples of Echo Chambers Part 1) which would be OK to an extant as long as they didn't lie. Unfortunately...

Examples of Echo Chambers - Part 1

Many people have wrongly assumed that the new Republican Party (as opposed to True Republicanism) actually represents a conservative view. And although there may be elements of conservatism in the new Republican ideologies, conservatism itself has been co-opted by a small group of people (i.e. plans 'by the few'). This post is to begin to outline the kinds of echo chambers to look out for since the news reports seem to consistently leave out the context and money trails.

What is an echo chamber?

An echo chamber is when you control several sources of information and use those sources of information to spread news and ruors that suit your political and business agenda.

1. Here is the perfect example that shows an echo chamber being used for political goals:

The train of planting News in the above echo chamber goes as follows - First story in the Wall Street Journal, Second Story in ...the NY Post and finally, news story on Fox News - Seems like different news sources commenting on a story but in reality it's ONE news story, created and promoted by the SAME news source.

2. Here is another example of a political echo chamber using multiple people for ONE view and on ONE channel. (And proof of demonization of the 'left' by this 'conservative' echo chamber):

Above: 'Conservative' Echo Chamber through Murdoch's Network (using multiple books on one view, talking about one perspective ONLY on a network owned by one man, i.e. the new republican party is an invention using multiple media channels all owned by the same group. Ironically, or perhaps, intelligently, the 'left' (i.e. the networks NOT owned by Murdoch) are grouped together as having a separate agenda thereby creating the 'Us vs. them' dynamic.

3. Here is an example of using an echo chamber for JUST business reasons (i.e. Rupert Murdoch comes up with device and tries to sell it through his news channels)

4. Here is an echo chamber using a different method (i.e. controlling sources of 'expert opinion' as opposed to the actual companies presenting the news). This is presented by Senator Bernie Sanders.

All of the above are examples of "echo chambers" - i.e. sources of information controlled by a few who use these sources to promote thier ideas over and over again while making them seem to be from independant (and therefore reliable) sources.
