A&E’s ‘Duck Dynasty’ Stunt is a Textbook Example of Media Manipulation | BenHebert.com

Here’s what happened:

A wealthy religious Southern man told GQ an interview that he believes homosexuality is a sin.

My initial response is who the f*&# cares. It’s not right, but does one person’s opinion have any bearing or effect on my life? No. But after witnessing the reactions, I thought I’d inform you on how you’re being manipulated.

First –

The quotes came from an interview. Not a random run-in with TMZ or drunk Charlie Sheen tirade, a scheduled interview. If for one second you think that Phil Robertson of ‘Duck Dynasty’ isn’t coached by a public relations team prior, you’re an idiot.

They knew what he was going to say and they embraced it.

This situation is a textbook example of feeding the monster, a form of media manipulation performed by expert marketers that may or may not have a conscience. It’s about the millionth time the stunt been done right in front of you this year.
