More on the Cape Gazette

Well, it seems as if my previous post wasn’t enough in order to discuss how media bias operates and how it manufactures consent. This is a perfect linguistics exercise that Noam Chomsky has gone over and over again.

Concerning a small local body of water, The Cape Gazette is undoubtedly the only media outlet with the narrative on what is occurring. Also, their paper seems to be developing an omniscient tone. When I’ve asked my friends in a nearby town, they exclaim, “Tell me a time when that river wasn’t polluted.”
