“The News is America’s New Religion, and We’re in a Religious War” by Matt Taibbi

@ASoulAFire @JaniceOCG @mtaibbi offers perspective on how we got here, here at this place where consuming much of major media news feels more like a manipulation of emotions than a way of becoming informed about our world, in “The News is America’s New Religion, and We’re in a Religious War,” for @tknewsbytaibbi

@ASoulAFire @JaniceOCG @chrislynnhedges @kthalps @mtaibbi Violent language among Americans, at the grocery store, movie theater and on the steps of Congress, are more than a good show or an outlet for our frustrations. Violent language is prelude to war. That’s what experience says.
