This is a GREAT article, I'm always interested in how psychological tactics are used by the media to control what the public thinks. Also, Normon, I really enjoyed hearing you on "The Joan Kenley Show" on the episode The Media: What’s True, What’s Not - I felt the episode was a treat and the discussion of how headlines are shaped by the media, government, and corporations hit home for me.
