    I agree 'psychological terrorism' is apt.  When it's on a scale this large though we may have to ramp up the term.

    I want to fight our 'media' soooo bad and look forward to any insight and inspiration mediaKos can provide.  I informally brainstorm on it every couple days.

      diary. For now, until we get some infrastructure for our group, we are using that as a place to brainstorm. Your ideas would be very appreciated. That applies to all Kossacks who are interested in the media's effect and power, in media reform, and in what Kossacks can do. The group is naturally open to all. My motto is for membership: To each according to his/her own interest, ability and time.

      As for Murdoch and the extreme right's psychological terrorism on America: Having lived abroad since 1992, I think I and other foreigners can see it even better than most Americans. They made 'liberal' a dirty word, and now they are succeeding with 'progressive' and 'social justice'. When you have 'Christians' proclaiming that social justice is ruining the world, you know we're in trouble.

      A Brit artist, Fletcher Crossman, had an amazing and thought-provoking art exhibition that could certainly have an effect on the way the 'average, apolotical Joe'.

      h/t to KingOneEye, who diaried it, and the commenter who used the term 'psychological terrorism' (I wish I could remember who it was!). I use it every chance I get.

      Cheers!
