The evil of the Mass Media - the greatest evil of which I know

*
I am now sufficiently detached from mass media outputs that I am continually struck by the alien-ness of the whole business. I particular, I am repeatedly struck by the fact that no matter what evils are being reported or discussed in the mainstream mass media: the mass media makes them worse.

*

No matter how utterly horrific something may be in and of itself - once the mass media gets hold of it, it becomes worse.

In 1001 ways, the mass media makes things worse - mis-attributing blame, blaming the innocent, hiding and excusing the guilty, dwelling sadistically on suffering, causing suffering, hounding victims, advocating violence on the wrong side and prohibiting violence on the right side, creating wicked taboos and breaking sacred taboos... in general propagating lust, spite, envy, hatred, confusion and inversion of values, despair and all manner of evils.

*

No situation is so bad that the mass media cannot and does - day by day, hour by hour, as a matter of routine - make it much, much worse.

And no situation is so bad, that the mass media does not encourage more of the same.

*

As an 'entity' the mainstream mass media is by far the most wicked THING that has even been in existence - because (not being a human personage and therefore not limited by the minimal intrinsic coherence of a human; but a spirit of evil using human personages - who consent to being used) the mass media can and does operate to destroy all Goods of all types in all directions - not simultaneously but sequentially.

This is (must be) the work of the greatest evil of which I know - of more than human evil - of the greatest evil in existence. 

*
Note added: I am assuming the truth of the standard Christian belief that advocating sin is far worse than actually sinning; because sinning is (to a significant extent) unavoidable while advocating sin is deliberate.
