Common Sense

PERHAPS the sentiments contained in the following pages, are not yet sufficiently fashionable to procure them general favor; a long habit of not thinking a thing wrong, gives it a superficial appearance of being right, and raises at first a formidable outcry in defence of custom. But the tumult soon subsides. Time makes more converts than reason. -Thomas Paine (1737-1809). Common Sense, 1776

Who shattered the MSM barrier?

As you may know, U.S. MSM (Main Stream Media) "works" for what President Dwight David Eisenhower called "the military-industrial-congressional complex." And seminal linguist Noam Chomsky pretty much nailed the results:
The United States is unusual among the industrial democracies in the rigidity of the system of ideological control - 'indoctrination,' we might say - exercised through the mass media.

So when a high profile celebrity with a top-rated show "speaks truth to power" in MSM, shattering that "ideological control" -- AND the audience applauds, you know a sea change is in the forecast.
