Call it a sardonic laugh: when on several lists you find people trying ever
so feeably to contribute to the "manufacture of consent" by transferring an
ideologically-saturated type of unnuanced blanket discourse worthy of the
media industry to a supposedly theoretical/intellectual forum like this one.
You can't help but shake your head and say "Jeez, these people think we're
all bozos," or something.... But, you said it, this is where the humor ends.
