CNN says we're in a bad mood

A new poll from our media masters reveals:

Seventy-five percent of those surveyed in a CNN/Opinion Research Corp. poll released Tuesday said things are going badly in the United States.

An equal portion of those polled said they are angry about the way things are going. Two-thirds of those questioned said they’re scared about the way things are going and three in four said the current conditions in the country are stressing them out.

“It’s scary how many Americans admit they are scared,” said Keating Holland, CNN’s polling director. “Americans tend to downplay the amount of fear they have when facing tough times. The fact that more than six in 10 say that they are scared shows how bad things are getting.”

How did it get that way?  Yes, we are in an economic downturn (how serious it is is difficult to divine) but the ugly temper has been brewing for some time.  I submit that it is a creation of our mainstream media.  In order to accrue power, they want us to be in a bad mood, so they create it.  It’s as simple as that, as simple as Pirandello:  “It is so, if you think so.”
