When one scans dozens of newspapers and magazines each day, looking for interesting headlines, one begins to notice a few things about the media that (mis)informs us.
One of the MOST noticed points is that the media TAKES ITS TIME WHEN IT IS DECEIVING ITS CUSTOMERS.
Other than WAR or NATURAL DISASTER/CALAMITY, the media RARELY puts the bad news out all at once.
The media–on MOST topics–operates on the “slow-but-steady-wins-the-race” principle.
The media RARELY uses all of its ‘heavy equipment’ at the beginning of a story.
The media uses the drip-drip-drip method of misinforming its users.
In this manner, the media may take longer to misinform–but the misinformation usually sticks with the person who is misinformed.
Drip-drip-drip is the way that water wears down a MUCH harder rock.
Flood won’t damage a hard rock–but the drip-drip-drip of erosion will.
Propaganda works much the same way.
Propaganda MUST be CONSTANTLY repeated to be effective.
“But the most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly and with unflagging attention. It must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over. Here, as so often in this world, persistence is the first and most important requirement for success.”

SO, successful propaganda ALSO works on the drip-drip-drip method–with each drip being a repetition of the first one.
The reader may want to keep this in mind the next time he is greeted with a media story whose topic is CHANGES.
The story will RARELY begin with a bang.
BUT, the reader will still PROBABLY be reading that story–or various aspects of it–a YEAR later.
HAS the reader noticed the drip-drip-drip method of presenting vital information?
It is not YET too late–although time is surely running out: there is still a LITTLE time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.
DOES the reader believe he is saved?
DOES the reader believe he is NOT saved?
THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
—1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
