Bitch in Sheep's Clothing:
Only a small percentage of readers are interested in the truth. Most want their biases or brainwashing vindicated. They want to read what they already believe. It is comforting, reassuring. When their ignorance is confronted, they become angry.
The way to be successful as a writer is to pick a group and give them what they want.
There is always a market for romance novels and for histories that uphold a country's myths. The single rule for success is to confine truth to what the readership group you serve believes. They are made stupid by education. The prominent figures in our contemporary Washington press corps regard themselves as government functionaries, enabling and codependent.

At heart, politicians don't believe that Americans can handle complex truths, and the news media, especially television news, basically agrees. It is thus extremely difficult, and indeed in most cases quite impossible, for the individual citizen to come to objective conclusions and to make intelligent use of his political rights.
Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of.
We are forever desperate to believe that this time the government is telling us the truth. You know it and I know it.
