you're absolutely right, it was merely my interpretation, kind of a "read between the lines" thing... As it seems with these matters the line between truth and lies is very blurred, so it feels logical that in order to prevent people from discovering one piece of truth, it's easier to feed them a hundred lies as decoys, to the point where a falsity-bias ecosystem is established in which either truth or lie lose their importance. This creates paranoia, which is a very malleable human condition. Once paranoia sets in, a person can be easily manipulated, as his/her reaction time to stimuli is quicker and less planned out.
It's not hard to believe if you think of hardcore audiences like Rush Limbaugh or Glenn Beck. Such pundits will push paranoia so that their audiences will stop thinking, and will just sit, listen and do as they are told... Like the rest of us on different degrees and under different influences, might that be left or right.
