Ever since I learned there was a propaganda model created in the early 1900s that filters all media so the public onlysees what the elite want them to seeI 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 and podcast creator. In 2019 he was threatened with being suedby Clive Palmer, and is currently being sued by John Barilaro - buthe refusesto be silenced. In 2021, hit pieces by mainstream media have only strengthened his resolve to call out political corruption and media bias.
He has produced over 650 no-holds-barred videos for his YouTube channel, has over half a million followers on social media and his videos have been viewed over 132 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.
Praise for Jordan

"Being in a packed house of people pissing themselves – sometimes in anger – there was a palpable sense that this feeling can be forged into something powerful. Like, I don’t know, a metaphoric hammer, for example” …Daily Review
