In this episode of Good Morning Bushwick, we discuss: the changing media landscape, how social media has taken over the role of the primary source of information, how the prevalence of conspiracy theories is an indication of the deterioration of public attention spans, how the media can control and drive a narrative, specifically with regards to the recent Joker movie and the concern of violence in the movie despite it being well-made, the difficulty of discerning truth with the presence of misinformation and disinformation, the idea that people in positions of power control the media’s narrative, how it can be damaging to society, how Hollywood often makes movies about controversial topics such as mind control, and how opinion-based shows on Fox News are not considered news sources.
