Have you noticed that most people just repeat what media tells them?

I couldnt help but noticing that most people around me just copy and repeat opinions they heard on mass media.

Its like all their opinions are just taken from whatever is popular on the media at the time.

So really, do these people even have "thoughts", or do they just copy and repeat?

Are they even capable of doubting what the popular media tells them?

Most people, regardless of where they fall on the political spectrum, engage in politics emotionally and not rationally. They don't want to reason, they want to project and react. They are addicted to the "can you believe what the woke libs are doing now?" or "can you believe what trump said at his rally?" outrage machine that the media feeds them. It's a weird catharsis for your every day person. And if you try to inject nuance into the conversation? They shut down.
