Even as recently as 2014 when I wrote Addicted to Distraction; I doubted the reality of a global conspiracy among the mass media; mainly because I could not conceive of a plausible mechanism that operate over such a vast volume of production...
Well, I have since changed my mind. I still don't know the mechanism, but half a decade of extra observation has clinched it: the evil, secular, materialist, leftist anti-Christian stance of the international media Is A Conspiracy.
If I had any doubts, then yesterday would have quelled them. The Global Mass Media decided that it did not want The World to know that Christians has been targeted, slaughtered and maimed in Sri Lanka; and so they suddenly invented the term Easter Worshippers, as a deliberately-confusing synonym.
This fresh-minted neologism was then used, according to Google, by about 84,000 news stories - i.e. nearly 84K items with the brand-new phrase were published yesterday!
From near-zero to tens-of-thousands of simultaneous phrase-users in a matter of hours!
That shows that it is indeed possible to co-ordinate thousands of news outlets (including dozens of famous Twitter users) so that they walk in lockstep; it shows the kind of world we live in; and it shows us yet again What They Want.
Note added: I read-over and posted this - and then checked the hypertext links; in that time there had been 600 further usages of Easter Worshippers. At this rate, 'Christians' will have been de facto renamed within a few more months...
