CBS Propaganda Placement: Conspiracy Theorists Are Anti-American, Domestic Terrorists
Chemtrails talking point inserted into CSI: NY
Monday, May 24th, 2010
A primetime CBS show that aired last week featured a notable example of so called “propaganda placement”, where a talking point is inserted into the plot in order to shape public perception, often at the behest of the government.
CSI NY’s episode entitled “Point of View” featured a character who researches “conspiracy theories”, such the deliberate dispersal of potentially dangerous chemtrails into the atmosphere.
First the character, a professor, is labeled”odd”, then “anti-American”, before finally he is revealed to be a “domestic terrorist” hell bent on releasing a biological weapon in New York.
The following is a partial transcript of dialogue from the show:
CSI detective: “I have a little intel on Professor Scott; he has a history of espousing various conspiracy theories; sharing them with his students got him into a little trouble.”
Professor’s friend: “Every university has a least one unconventional professor.”
Second CSI detective: “Oh come on Payton, this guys ideas here are totally anti-American. Look at this; water fluoridation, tsunami bombs, chemtrails…
First CSI detective: “What are chemtrails?”
Third CSI detective: “Some people believe that vapor exhaust from aircraft are actually dangerous bio-chemicals dispersed into the air.”
Friend of the professor: “Which only proves that the professor is a little odd.”
