This is a perfect description for what 24-hour infotainment media outlets were built to do--inundate the general public with "bullshit" like false and/or misleading narratives, contextless quotes that make politicians sound like they're saying something different than what's intended, and cherry-picked bits of information that paint incomplete pictures of reality and guide people to the wrong conlcusions, all for the sake of better ratings and increased advertising revenue.

Outer space enthusiast. Japanese history junkie. I write about politics, culture, and mental illness. Disagreement is a precursor to progress.
