31:54 – Idiot Extraordinaire: CNN (nominated by BlameThe1st) http://www.cnn.com/2015/10/19/politics/hillary-clinton-bernie-sanders-poll/

This Week’s Quote: “You now have two distinct ways of gathering information beyond what you yourself can experience. One of them is less a medium than an environment—the Internet—with a huge multiplicity of points of view, lots of different ways to find out what’s going on in the world…a cacophony of viewpoints that doesn’t have any political coherence at all, a beautiful melee, but it doesn’t have the capacity to create large blocs of belief. The other medium, TV, has a…very uniform belief block. TV in America created the most coherent reality distortion field that I’ve ever seen. Therein is the problem: People who vote watch TV, and they are hallucinating like a sonofabitch. Basically, what we have in this country is government by hallucinating mob.” —John Perry Barlow
