JAY’S ANALYSIS: Host Jay Dyer with guest Shawn Helton on Mass Media’s ‘Psychic Assault’

Jay Dyer 
21st Century Wire

Mass media has converted the public into living a synthetic reality

Shawn Helton of 21stcenturywire.com and I discuss the film ‘Nightcrawler‘ as an emblematic work portraying the mass media complex and their psychical subversion.  Nightcrawler details the transformation of independent video news gatherer Lou Bloom from nerdy crook to psychopathic success-bound executive.  The film is thus a microcosm of how mass media psyops and aesthetic terror function to shock the mass psyche.
