If you read the article, they didn't give up. They changed the approach to something with a better success rate.
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

But what this really goes back to is the allegedly mainstream media believe they used to control minds.

    I mean they brought down Nixon and ended the Vietnam war, right?
And that the internet spoiled all that somehow.

What they will not see is that the internet revealed that they never did control minds.
