Here is an excerpt from the Wikipedia entry about this series regarding this episode:
'Police State' criticism
Shortly after the season two episode "Police State" aired, U.S. Representative Steve Cohen from Tennessee, who was interviewed in the episode, called for the removal of this program from truTV's lineup. He called the episode "outrageous distortion and an outright lie," as well as "dangerous and irresponsible." He stated "when the media purposely distort the facts to create confusion and mislead people, they must be held accountable. Unless we actively debunk false and misleading reports, we risk leaving the public with a dangerously skewed vision of this country." Cohen said he was "shocked and appalled" that Time Warner would air a program "so full of inaccuracies and irresponsible distortions."
"...when the media purposely distort the facts to create confusion and mislead people, they must be held accountable." ... That's rich. Isn't that what they do all the time? What's his problem now all of a sudden he has issues about it and wants accountability? Oh wait.. I get it. It is not distortion it is truth that is why they have major issues with it!
The Matrix Machinery (MM) is used to create, control and steer the illusions, delusions and otherwise complete fantasies in the public mind. Some may think there is no MM and this is just the insane blathering of a mad man. Others might know the MM exists but may think it is only a recent phenomenon born with the invention of Radio/TV. And some may even believe the MM is only used to manipulate politics or to start wars.
One could even make a compelling argument that all of these beliefs could be proof positive about the MM need I say more I rest my case?
We, "your" government, has finally convinced you, the people, there are "terrorists". AKA "Bogymen", out there trying to kill you all. It was a rather simple thing to do actually. All we, the government, had to do is blow up some buildings, set some bombs off and then let our corporate MSM bed partners stoke the fires of fear and blame someone else for what we, the government, did. We have to go to war to protect you from the "Bogymen".. er.. I mean.. "terrorists"!
Standard government operating procedure. Just ask the Reichstag Fire, Gulf Of Tonken, Pearl Harbor and the Lusitania about all that. You can save yourself a lot of research truth digging time by just sitting through the documentary Terrorstorm.
I don't need to say a thing about this. U.S. can speak for itself.
Did the Magic Matrix Mass Media Manipulation Machinery fail to mention this to you? Chanting USA, USA, USA and waving a flag takes on a whole new meaning after becoming aware of this.
MSM would be Main Stream Media. TV, Radio, Newspapers, Movies, Advertising or any other major source of corporate/state controlled information, of any kind, for the public at large. AKA here at MatrixUSA as The Magic Matrix Mass Media Manipulation Machinery. It really is Magic how a handful of people, using that word very loosely here, can control the mind of virtually the entire country. And it really is Matrix Manipulation what they are doing with the public mind.
You think that's News you're watching? Can't happen here? Freedom of the press? Free speech? The government loves you? The government wants to protect you? The government is good? The government is competent? It's your government? The government serves the people? You are free? You have Constitutional rights and protections? Etc., etc., etc.
Well there you go.. complete Matrix fantasy. All of it. How ever did that get in your head? Can you see the Magic now?
