Yeah. We don't think for ourselves. We've all been brainwashed. I've seen John Oliver's show and laughed before, so that means I get my news from him apparently.
It's just the easiest way to dismiss a dissenting opinion. We're guilty too, but they take the cake.
One of the most fascinating parts of the last year is watching Fox News, the number one cable news source in America, pretend that they aren't mainstream media. It's been a winning strategy too. Imagine McDonalds just stating unequivocally that they aren't a fast food chain.
Also watching Trump and Republicans gain almost unprecedented control of the government, and then convince their base they are either powerless against the stifling Democrats, or that they aren't the "elites" who control the government. He'll, their still deflecting Trumps issues to Hillary's. She just an old lady now. If you believe she's just as powerful or influential as the President, then you're mistaken.
It's quite shocking to me the depths of which they are still trusted by some, especially considering that those that trust them were so anti-establishment and anti-government not only a year ago. I miss the Conservatives who were interested in holding the powerful accountable.
