Consumers can control their consumption choices and habits. The media speaks for the market as they should since companies pay for media time with their advertising money. The media sells even when they sincerely try to be objective. People sell. People buy. When buyers, after they’ve bought, forget that they’ve bought, and turn on their media to hear and see selling, and think that they’re watching and listening as citizens, the citizen part of them gets frustrated and angry with the sellers. In America, there are no citizens. America is populated by consumers who buy things. The citizen part of America is now a myth we continue to retell.
