i think everyone wants to think they're out of grasps of brainwashing by the media, but the only ones who aren't are the ones living in caves with no internet or connection to the outside world, the ones in isolation. you can delude yourself into thinking you aren't influenced one way or another, but you're not they use sublimination they feed into our subconscious. Everyone wants to believe they're smarter than the rest of the world, but we're not we're all just average. and average is good. I except that I get influenced more than I'd like by the media. I have no way to escape, I'm forced to interact with the world, even if I didn't use internet and tv I'd still see ads on billboards and busses. The media is too big to take down, and even if we did something else would pop up in its place. Which means there's nothing we can do. so we just accept that we're getting brainwashed little by little for corporations, for politics, for everything.
