You're not alone in your views. Powerful interests just want you to think you are. (PODCAST) Dated: April 16, 2021 by Sharyl Attkisson 6 Comments Powerful interests are working overtime to give the impression that controversial views held by a minority of people are majority views that you have to get on board with— or else.

Pick up the story that despite of the hundreds of voices bemoaning government issued IDs required to vote, NOT ONE has raised the alarm that these same millions of voters who somehow don't have one will ALSO NOT BE ABLE TO GET A VACCINE. Why weren't billions allocated in the jumbo COVID bill set aside to find these lost souls and get them IDs, why was the alarm never raised? Probably because they don't actually exist. If we make it an issue, that might be proved. Cynicism runs in their blood.
Thanks for the great podcast. I am sure many people out there truly don't realize the scope of how many others actually agree with them. Between all the bans, shadow bans, and people voluntarily fleeing stifling social media sites like Facebook, and Twitter, the people left there don't realize how little of an echo chamber they're sitting in.
The very fact that those powerful interests censor my views by several different means Disproves the their Claim that I am on board the Leftist, Progressive, Socialist agenda to destroy America.

It sounded to me as if, immediately following the podcast, the Just The News advertisement for the special face masks they are selling to a fear-mongered public -- who needs them like they need a hole in the head -- was a perfect example of the kind of astroturfing that Sharyl was talking about. Nothing short of shameful! Somebody in the JTN upper levels of management really ought to take a good hard look into this travesty.

I love that idea of simply trusting your common sense. It's honestly quite fascinating how so many different opinions that might have been held by a majority of people have been smeared out of existence. It does make me consider if we are still living in a true republic or if we are truly being ruled by an oligarchy in disguise.
