Results from recent study indicate below average functioning for MSM

Results from a recent study have shown that MSM journalists are…well…a bit thick really.

While these results aren’t in any way definitive they are indicative and, if objectively true, would explain quite a lot. Quote.

The results showed that journalists’ brains were operating at a lower level than the average population, particularly due to dehydration and their tendency to self-medicate with alcohol, caffeine, and high-sugar foods.

41% of the subjects said they drank 18 or more units of alcohol a week, which is four units above the recommended weekly allowance. Less than 5% of them drank enough water, and some admitted to drinking none at all. End Quote.

I’m wondering what particular reason or reasons there would be for the indicated commonality of excessive drinking.

Furthermore, are we to believe that the ‘demon drink’ is the only drug of choice for our MSM Glitterati?

It would be entirely understandable that the participants of this study would, quite naturally, not be very forthcoming in regards to any other drugs they may be self-medicating with.

My opinion on this matter is that the abuse of drugs is always symptomatic of deeper problems within a person’s life; often arising from a disconnection between an individual’s objective truth and the demands to ‘fit in’ within an environment where the truth is oftentimes undesirable.

The recent interview between Patrick Gower (journalist/reporter), Lauren Southern (social activist) and Stefan Molyneux (philosopher) was an interesting case study in ‘disconnection’.

What I saw was: a reporter who quite visibly had no wish to take part in the interview in the first place; had turned up extremely unprepared; and who displayed an enormous degree of arrogance and disrespect towards not only the subjects of the interview but also the audience in general.

What happened next, however, was very interesting and quite telling.

Gower immediately appeared on that veritable bastion of intelligent discourse and dialogue ‘The Project’, where several of his industry colleagues not only consoled his bruised ego but also reaffirmed his behaviour.

I believe this is indicative of an overarching MSM culture where subjective feelings hold sway over any attempts to create publicly accessible platforms where current events can be debated using reason and logic.

There are of course always exceptions and not all journalists ‘cave in’ and appease towards the pressures of the cult they find themselves unknowingly a part of. But unfortunately, they are very much exceptions to the norm.

I have for some time held a suspicion that an overwhelming majority of our MSM are not the ‘sharpest tools in the shed’. Furthermore, I believe that these same reporters, or ‘repeaters’ as I prefer to describe them don’t consider their audience to be particularly bright either. Their lack of effort and passion is surely a reflection of this.

It’s one of the things I appreciate when it comes to contributing towards Whaleoil and I know I’m not alone either.

As writers, we respect the intelligence of our audience and this drives us towards doing the best we can.
