About this Episode

In this episode we piece together the most persuasive parts of media reporting done on the Cohen sentencing – cable news.

This time we analyze the news reporting of both what conservatives term the "extreme left" (Rachel Maddow of MSNBC) and what liberals term the "extreme right" (Sean Hannity of Fox News).

Learn how both networks covered (or as we will see, failed to cover) the exact same news event. What persuasion tactics were used? Learn:

  • The art of the Courtroom Drama
  • Cohen's expertly written mea culpa before the court
  • Movie and story-arc theming for convicted criminals caught in a political spiral
  • How media associates or disassociates from an issue in order to create bias and automatic thinking
  • The two different classes of FBI workers and which one you can never trust
  • The "Unmaskings", and the "Two-Tiered Justice System"
  • How vocal tone is used to imply guilt and wrongdoing
  • Donald Trump equals... what?
  • And more!
