MSN swine flu subliminals

Examples of how internet news outlets subliminally influence the viewer simply by oversaturating the page with a particular topic.





Another method to continually have you thinking about "their" news of the day is the use of public polls
whose numbers mean nothing. Another tactic to "engage" the viewer to participate and think about a particular subject and choose a position on it.



Pay attention to the sorts of pictures they choose to use to "advertise" the agenda itself. In this case
it centers around the vaccine itself, not the virus and it's true impact.



This section promotes fearmongering and paranoia about H1N1



This is designed to scare parents into running down to their nearest clinic to submit to the vaccination.

Below is an interactive slide show featured by MSN to give a "false" timeline to the pandemic issue. If you check the news stories that were released at that time, all of the numbers are contradictory in nature and keep changing, which adds to the confusion surrounding the true facts in this matter. Another tactic is to have major news outlets delete articles or not add them to their archives so the viewer has no resource by which to compare facts.
