Is the television used as mass mind control?

It's certainly opinion-forming. And if the conspiracy theorists are to be believed, ITV here in the UK was substantially funded by the CIA, along with the Readers Digest and other "Middle of the Road" media.

Given the way the BBC p***es off the main political parties here in the UK, I suspect that if anyone is using it for mind control, they're probably not making a very good job of it.

"There is nothing wrong with your television set. Do not attempt to
adjust the picture. We are controlling transmission. If we wish to make
it louder, we will bring up the volume. If we wish to make it softer, we
will tune it to a whisper. We will control the horizontal. We will
control the vertical. We can roll the image, make it flutter. We can
change the focus to a soft blur or sharpen it to crystal clarity. For
the next hour, sit quietly and we will control all that you see and
hear. We repeat: There is nothing wrong with your television set. You
are about to participate in a great adventure. You are about to
experience the awe and mystery which reaches from the inner mind to –
The Outer Limits."

To a degree. Look at the US elections. All you see all day everyday is how much people dislike Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, yet any network has yet to cover any of the other parties running. They are insuring a bad leader.

Same here with the leave and stay campaign regarding the EU. They use Nigel Farrage as the Leave politician when in fact the conservatives, labour, green party are ALL, as individual parties, divided on the decision, yet Cameron claims they not.

Not by design ... In the conventional sense of "mind control".

However, it has been well documented that ALL news networks are biased ... And that bias effects their reporting, so viewers don't get objective news reporting. 

So there is "unintended mind control", in the form of self-censorship due to bias.

Sadly, for a lot of people it is very controlling.  They believe all of what they see.  Hopefully, the rest of us can keep things in perspective and remember that TV is designed to attract audiences.  Sometimes that requires some creative story telling to get and keep viewers.  It's entertainment for the most part and we need to keep that in mind.

Yes, that's why you watch "programs" :)

People mimmick what they watch, they tend to switch off while watching and so can never really watch it with mindful observation, this allows them to take on board the ideas subconsciously. Just imagine how full our brains are of needless things we've seen on TV, characters, plots, songs, etc, all needlessly taking up our brain space, feeding into our emotions, insecurities, pride, we are bombarded with it.

The only thing that really matters is to question our reality. Why are we working a 40 hour week (at least), for most of our lives to live on an earth that we have a birthright to the same as all those elites above us? Remember they don't work, and they get private health care because they live off us, the labour force, the dogs bodies, and every year we elect them to control us all over again.  Who said they own the planet, the earth? Yet we swallow this idea hook, line and sinker, praise it even.

It is not merely to entertain the Mob, like the Colosseum in Rome, it is to train us into a certain way of being, of thinking, and to act as a distraction to our real enslavement.

Entertainment + advertisement + mind control = TV

In some places /?/?/?, they represent America attacking everywhere around while there's nothing going on, Obama gives one speech, they split it into four, five pieces, minutes to minutes, they translate it however they wish so to their own language, and play each piece in their daily news, and people believed that America is always busy to talk about them and some of them think we are bunch of naked people with no life and respect and we'll burn in hell for our sins!)

Power of TV! While you believe anything you hear and see!

Perhaps, but I haven't noticed.

I treat most of what I see on TV just like a weather forecast---unless I see a live feed of Jim Cantore standing on the boardwalk during a hurricane, I'm unlikely to think the weatherman even knows whether or not it is actually raining.
