MAX – 41,200,200 trips, up 7.5 percent
Bus – 58,431,700 trips, down 3.6 percent
WES – 370,800 trips, up 21.2 percent
Lets examine this simple chart for propaganda.
Notice how even though the bus service hauls most of the people, its in the #2 position on the chart.
Notice how MAX and WES are capitalized but bus only the B is in capital letters.
Notice how there is no mention of fareless going strictly rail or of the very significant cuts in bus service.
The green line addition is not mentioned.
It's interesting that the % increase and decrease are such an important part of these news releases.
“The goal of modern propaganda is no longer to transform opinion but to arouse an active and mythical belief”
