Ted talk is evil. It’s a tv show. The audience are real. But he is a genius being used to allow the world to see fake news as “ok”. It’s a lie.

Brian C says:

Tupac would say… the cia has had this kind of technology for a while. The anchors are finally caught by the people’s ability to speak to millions online… someone have had to caught onto the repetition of all the anchors. someone who sits at home all day watching tv can pick up on the cia’s Network lies. So they trained a agent to remember a script which he just is told to do by his bosses. The TED Talk spoke person is just a controlled human in a controlled setting telling us that they did in the repetition. The cia tries to make it seem that it was ok for the news stations a to repeat the same thing. The ted talk presenter seems to almost be defending why the news stations had news reporters saying the same exact words which where scripted by a very important person. Brainwashing.
