Anything absolutely horrible that is sure to make people feel bad or hurt but boosts ratings and newspaper/magazine sales beyond belief. Not to be confused with good news.

A misnomer.

A TV show, in which topical, current real or simply ficticious events,
are used as the basis for made-up stories, and or discussions.

Stories are often produced, specifically to target propoganda,
for specific brainwashing purposes.

Watchers of News often will gladly believe fictional
stories which portray their country as being Godly,
Just, Fair, Caring, and rich in making actions for humanity.

News shows, play an importan roll in influencing whole populations,
and their use of true stories, well adds to their illusions,
helping to increase the believability of their fictional strories that are produced, as propoganda, which have been used to make inhumain practices seem like those of fair minded caring people.

News shows are absolutely essential to the functioning democracy.
Through stories and interviews, illusions of truth, are created.
News shows use sounds and images, and play a huge part in brainwashing people.

Without news shows to support them, the rich and their ruling regime,
and system of interlinked organisations, which have exerted control over most countries, of the world, would less easily be able to be portrayed as democracy in action.

The ecenomic grip enabeling their influence to dominate, and control most political systems, is well served by the News.
News is produced by many differing organisations, for example the BBC, CNN, Sky,
and these can further work together to increase illusions,
through 'reporting' the same propoganda.

One method used in news production,
is as simple as it is effective, by using interview with people only from the one side of a conflict,
is highly effective in creating the illusion that their projected view is that of the majority or only view.

Often the truth is not reported at all.
News shows provides a great platform for political figures to educate people, so they may better understand why should chose to vote for them.

Illusions created by the corporate elite to suppress knowledge to the general public. The knowledge typically suppressed is the true effects of climate change, political corruption, the Vatican Archives, rigged elections, along with many other topics.

News is a way for journalists to make money. It's also a way for people to find out what's happening all over the place at any given time.
I want to go on one of those big fancy news shows.
