What a total crock of self-aggrandizing rubbish by professional disseminators of dis/mis-information. The news media is owned and operated by a very small and extremely wealthy group of individuals who are part of the power elite. Hidden agendas, spin doctor twisting of fact; the whole profession is in total disrepute. What passes for “news” is little more than yellow journalism dressed up for prime time television. Bunch of wasters the lot of them.
As for the alleged thesis? Yet more garbage. Cognitive load theory and the known threshold of human capacity for processing new – novel information alone make the whole slant to be just so much brain addled drivel.
