Do you believe you're immune to media and advetising manipulation, control or brainwashing?
No, to be honest. A lot of advertising influence is subconscious. Studies find that people who think they're immune to advertising influence actually aren't.
No. Advertisers would not spend the Billions they do if it didn't work.
Mostly, yes I'm petty much immune.
I would hope so.
No but I do think about what is said and shown to me
i think so.
Yes, for a few reasons. One, I don't watch much TV - I lived for decades without one, precisely because it is filled with mindless trash and far too much advertising. I don't listen to radio for the same reason. I am an independent thinker with good critical thinking skills, I have read about 800 history books, and I am familiar with philosophy and science. I can't be brainwashed.

HI the worst culprit is the BBC
Yes, relatively - if I can be bothered to cross-check the story.
No not really. I try to keep an open mind and do my own research when intrigued by something. However, I'm sure I could be blindsided at times.
