Mass Media & Groupthink

Definition:  Groupthink is a psychological phenomenon that can occur in groups of people. Rather than critically evaluating information, the group members begin to form quick opinions that match the group consensus. Groupthink seems to occur most often when a respected or persuasive leader is present, inspiring members to agree with his or her opinion.
Definition: Groupthink is a psychological phenomenon that occurs within a group of people, in which the desire for harmony or conformity in the group results in an incorrect or deviant decision-making outcome. Group members try to minimize conflict and reach a consensus decision without critical evaluation of alternative ideas or viewpoints. Loyalty to the group requires individuals to avoid raising controversial issues or alternative solutions. The dysfunctional group dynamics produces an "illusion of invulnerability" (inflated certaintly that the right decision has been made). The primary socially negative cost of groupthink is the loss of individual creativity, uniqueness, and independent thinking.
The Mainstream Media (MSM) are diversified media technologies that are intended to reach a large audience by mass communication. Only 6 Monolithic Corporations CONTROL almost everything we WATCH, READ and HEAR! See Here: 

There exists a kind of groupthink amongst mass media; especially given how they are dominated by six major Corporations only. Mass media is a business. Their bottom line isn’t adherence to fact or journalistic integrity, but rather turning a profit and getting the masses to beLIEve what they are being told is truth.

They amplify the disinformation in such a way as to divide people into arguing factions. The one thing they all agree on is making profit and will send out antagonistic and confusing spins on facts purposefully to keep us divided and arguing.

When only 6 behemoth Corporations own all the information, nothing could be farther than the truth. Switch to utilizing independent, alternative media like, "A Sheep No More" ( and, and see for yourself what you are or are not being told. Question everything you watch, read or hear as truth.

Thank you, 

A Sheep No More
