The sober sepulchral tones of media anchors, and their extreme deference to FBI, police, and politicians, form a hypnotic induction for viewers and these leaders dont want to break the spell, which is exactly what anger does.
Therefore, its a no-go.
Anger is a spark that fires up and spreads. So dampen it. Ignore it. Dont show it on television news. Instead, say this: Step back, everybody, huddle in your homes, let the pros do their job, theyll catch the killers, look at the photos they want you to look at, remain calm, depend on designated officials.
This is the new American dream.
If you dont show anger on the television news, it doesnt exist. Out of sight, out of mind.
Then, once in a while, media can point to an angry group they want to defame: See, look at those people. Theyre angry. Theyre the only people who are. So there must be something wrong with them. Theyre dangerous. What they stand for must be a threat to all the rest of us because theyre angry.
Suppose, right after the killings in Boston, the major networks interviewed 50 people who were in a rage. Viewers would start to wake up. Thats not permitted.
This engineered absence of anger dovetails perfectly with the have a nice day philosophy. Its all about thinking positive thoughts and immediately lapsing into a passive invisible state.
A culture of anger-is-destructive has made enormous inroads on American life. We even have so-called experts issuing phony statements about the deleterious physical effects of negative emotions.
This is preposterous idiocy, at best. The key distinction here is between mindless outrage and anger directed at those who deserve to be exposed for their crimes. Its also a distinction between bottling up, out of naked fear, such specifically directed outrage, and expressing it.
Unless you believe the American Revolution was fought by smiling troops who strolled into battle like glazed donuts sporting muskets.
