Jay and Shawn Helton of 21Wire: ‘Mass Media Lense of Terror’

Shawn Helton of 21stcenturywire.com and I discuss the film ‘Nightcrawler‘ as an emblematic work portraying the mass media complex and their psychical subversion.  Nightcrawler details the transformation of independent video news gatherer Lou Bloom from nerdy crook to psychopathic success-bound executive.  The film is thus a microcosm of how mass media psy ops and aesthetic terror function to shock the mass psyche.

Check out Shawn’s analysis here.
