The News-Benders (1968)
An idealistic young television producer is approached by the representative of a clandestine agency offering an unusual job: creating the news - before it happens. And a refusal, it seems, is not an option.

The NEWS-BENDERS from 1968

At the time the play was written, Vietnam had emerged as the first 'television war', and the extent of the medium's influence on the public, particularly in political and commercial arenas, was just beginning to be recognised. In this context, Lowden's extrapolation is as astute as it is grimly playful. With media manipulation now a routine feature of regimes such as China, North Korea and Iran, and increasing concern at the agenda-setting political power of certain partisan news services in Europe and the US, 'The News-Benders' is perhaps even more pertinent now than it was in 1968.

"With media manipulation now a routine feature of regimes such as China, North Korea and Iran" yeah, not the US LOL

The politics of disease: The Indian Vaccination Act, 1832 | American Indian Studies

"Rogan promotes himself as a free thinker who is happy to discuss topics with both sides of the political spectrum. However, he has also allowed his podcast—and its substantial audience—to be hijacked by charlatans, conspiracy theorists, and bad faith actors who end up influencing his impressionable audience. As such, it has become a prominent and dangerous vehicle for disinformation, capable of impacting millions of listeners on a weekly basis."
