Pimps do it.

Hollywood does it.

Madison Avenue does it.

Organized religion does it.

Who else does it, and, how methodical, effective, scientific, and templated out has it become?

Fox News does it:http://truth-out.org/index.php?option=com_k2&view=item&id=1964:fourteen-propaganda-techniques-fox-news-uses-to-brainwash-americans

Politicians are obviously masters at it:http://www.fastcompany.com/1699985/politicians-using-neuromarketing-in-ads-to-win-voteshttp://stopframingus.com/

You do it to yourself:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_cognitive_biaseshttp://www.nytimes.com/2011/11/27/books/review/thinking-fast-and-slow-by-daniel-kahneman-book-review.html?pagewanted=allhttp://subrealism.blogspot.com/2012/03/incompetent-people-are-too-ignorant-to.htmlAnd we all know where the responsibility for self-inflicted wounds lies.

Or maybe all of that is just me confirming things I already believe...

As for the 'psychological hackers' I guess it's 1st getting beyond the sci-fi notions of what mind control actually is.

Television information seems to be received more in the unconscious than the conscious regions of the mind where it would be possible to think about it. p200

The images pass through your eyes in a dematerialized form, invisible. They are reconstituted only after they are already inside your head...Television viewing may then qualify as a kind of wakeful dreaming, except that it's a stranger's dream from a faraway place though it plays against the screen of your mind...There are corollary studies which show that when the eyes are not moving but instead are staring zombielike, thinking is diminished." p201

On p203-204 Mander goes on to argue that, "...reading plays a feedback role. Unlike images words do not pour into you. The reader not the book sets the pace...stopping to think or underlining...you effectively create the information you wish to place in your conscious mind...Images require nothing of the sort. They only require that your eyes are open. Images enter you and are recorded in memory whether you think about them or not."

Hollywood, Madison Avenue, organized religion do not set off alarms which allow them to move more freely without detection. However, in my opinion, Fox News is intended to be easily identifiable bias.  They are the scripted finger puppet performance designed to pull people away from the real psychological invasion.

Robert Cialdini explains, "You and I exist in an extraordinarily complicated stimulus environment, easily the most rapidly moving and complex that has ever existed on this planet. To deal with it, we need shortcuts. We can't be expected to recognize and analyze all the aspects in each person, event, and situation we encounter in even one day. We haven't the time, energy, or capacity for it. Instead, we must very often use our stereotypes, our rules of thumb to classify things according to a few key features and then to respond mindlessly when one or another of these trigger features is present." p7

Like that sister Michelle Alexander http://subrealism.blogspot.com/search?q=the+new+jim+crow  that has a fight ahead of her to redefine the Jim Crow as no longer the image of a black ex-World War vet in overalls terrorized by overt racists but instead an industry.

Those psychological hackers are definitely not a Fox [News] in the path but rather an innocuous tarbaby.
