Introduction: It's legal to lie for "News" in the United States...
Except for one time. Back in 1998 - a political activist named Mark Kasky sued Nike...
1. Here is one type of echo chamber (i.e. controlling sources of 'expert opinion' as opposed to the actual companies presenting the news). This is presented by Senator Bernie Sanders.
A. Every media channel ignores its mass media hype for the same person, Ron Paul.
B. Ron Paul is against invasion/war and doesn't attempt to brush the lies of Iraq war under the rug.

Something only reported by Rachel Maddow:
But for some strange reason the other news outlets/programs didn't cover this:
One side is huge money in politics, the other side is voter suppression...
The fight for truth within the Republican Party went on for a while (that time is over), while the rest of the country and it's media (overall) said nothing. Exposed nothing. A mention is the most Ron Paul followers ever got on TV, which was apparently enough to satisfy most of the people, who only watch TV news, that the news had been reported.
The Republican National Committee's Committee on Contests affirmed state party chairman Roger Villere's conduct of the state convention in Shreveport, It released its decision late Friday in Washington, D.C.
Paul's supporters contend that the state party made illegal last-minute rule changes to thwart a Ron Paul majority elected in congressional district caucuses in April.
The state party and the Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney campaigns said the supplemental rules protected the results of Louisiana's presidential primaries.
Paul delegates wound up holding a separate convention.
"The LAGOP executive committee again submitted false information in an attempt to mislead their fellow Republicans," said Charlie Davis, who led the Paul campaign in Louisiana. "I'm not really surprised by the preliminary ruling and I'm looking forward to finally presenting our case in Tampa. The wheels of justice move slow and I remain hopeful that when all the facts are presented the truth will win out."
Villere said he thinks the Committee on Contests has settled the matter. "This was their best shot," he said.
The committee found that the rule changes "were not a material change to the manner of electing, selecting, allocating, or binding national convention delegates."
This media echo chamber continues to this day (currently dissent is being crushed and Rand Paul has stepped in as a GOP representative for Libertarians while saying he's not Libertarian).
Moment Of Zen:
