Jordan Shanks Friendlyjordies Cancels The Media

Ever since I learned there was a propaganda model created in the early 1900s that filters all media so the public only sees what the elite want them to see I have been obsessively tracking its ramifications. It's truly horrific. There is no democracy. It's all a lie... can I have some money? 

__________________________________________

Jordan Shanks is a controversial political satirist, live radio host and podcast creator. In 2019 he was threatened with being sued by Clive Palmer, but he refuses to be silenced.

He has produced over 450 no-holds-barred videos for his YouTube channel, has over half a million followers on social media and his videos have been viewed over 86 million times.

Jordan hopes he will foster some sort of interest in socio-political discourse, maybe even stir positive change, but most people keep asking him to dress up as a high school kid he once knew. Sometimes he complies.
