What "THE MAN" wants, "THE MAN" gets... and if you don't pay attention it will all go by in the blink of a sound bite! Hundreds of channels, remote control, all-day news, special alerts, on-screen ticker tapes, snippets and sound bites, spin, slant, warnings, precautions, 24 hours, 7 days a week of 2-second at a time filtered information overload. Are we becoming a "don't let them think while we take advantage of the situation" society or are we just waiting to take the train into our own hands?
