3. What is stronger, the Constitution or propaganda?

Ultimately, a free press was supposed to quash any inroads into a propaganda state, but mixing news and entertainment led to the serious dilution of the effects of a free press. Add to that an American public that only wants to hear the news they believe to be true or wish to be true, sans any intellectual or political curiosity, and voila, goodbye free press, goodbye Constitution, goodbye USA.

We're a lot closer to that than most realize.
