Charles Hugh Smith explains:
A massive outbreak of economic cognitive dissonance is being suppressed with wave after wave of manufactured “good news.” Every visibly negative bit of data is run through a media and Central State assembly line to refashion it as “good news” and “evidence” that the “nascent recovery is taking hold.” Whatever cannot be rejiggered is simply buried or suppressed.
The fact that five corporations control the the vast majority of the U.S. mainstream media certainly aids that manufacturing process.
I notice this daily. I can’t figure out why anyone believes the MSM anymore.
