Looking for Clues...
- Nov 16, 2016
The question then is "Why Liverpool"?In this wider debate about conspiracy, bias and unfair treatment, maybe we need to look a bit closer to home, especially when it comes to the media.
The media sustain themselves on driving clicks and turning that into ad revenue. Maybe a sure fire way to get clicks is to chat shit about LFC? Liverpool fans certainly seem very susceptible to rage sharing the latest bollocks that Stan Collymore has come out with, or a transfer rumour about Sadio Mane.
Is the rage engendered by the media negativity or is the click bait a product of Liverpool supporters being susceptible to their trap? Really a chicken and egg question.
I think the media narrative is driven by the Murdoch agenda, of keeping Liverpool in a negative light. They use the 'victims' identity to create a negativity towards the club and the city, and in doing so create that mindset in organisations and in popular culture.
Wolves supporters singing the 'Sign on' song? In a place where unemployment is rife? This is endemic in other clubs supporters, fuelled for a reason, by a very dubious media agenda.
