re: #145 Belafon

Here’s a few examples off of my head, including those above:
Elvis - The transistor radio
Michael Jackson and Madonna - The music video
Garth Brooks - Checkout counter tabulation of record sales
Bill Gates - The creation of the PC
Bezos - The ability to sell online
Zuckerberg - Parents and grandparents figuring out the internet
Murdoch - Cable television

I’d say Murdoch’s brilliance was less cable television, and more realizing that there was a television market for people who wanted to be purposefully fed misinformation so long as it reinforced to the beliefs/biases they already held and then filled it.
