Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

True, but I'm not blaming anyone, more making the point that:

  1. There's such a thing as media damage which is independent of media bias.

  2. If we're looking for reasons why people vote against their interests and are disconnected from reality, media damage is one place to start.

There's something very paradoxical about the way that this kind of media noise simultaneously diminishes and distances reality, while at the same time captivating attention so that there's no room for reality to creep in.
