Pretty much uncanny valley all round when it comes politically motivated content at the moment, Harv.

TV and radio news programmes broadcast surreal snippets of propoganda, interspersed with feel-good and feel-bad stories. The TV newsreaders all speak with the same rise and fall tone, intonation and engagement-including movements. It creeps me out, a bit. They are trained to deliver stories written by someone else, in an imitation of an earnest and sincere manner.

Or maybe, I'm just odd.
