The Nightly News- TV newscasts are part tabloid, part propaganda, part PR and part lies.

It's not just news; it's a sophisticated tool like a software program that manipulates the audience by suggestion and deception. If you watch closely you'll notice how they use mental tricks to control viewers.

Talking heads must sit behind a desk because their lower bodies underdeveloped.

News anchors read the news as if they know it's the truth, but they just read what some writer gave them to read. Yet they look directly at the camera and speak as though they sincerely believe they are telling you the truth.

Sometimes they quote others or they say that some other source provided the information, but most of the time their job is to convince you that their news report is always true. By the time it is learned to be untrue people forget about what the reporter said.

There is something inherently deceptive about this standard industry practice.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
