One Piece’s Egghead arc could be setting Big News Morgans up for an unexpected role

The influence of propaganda in One Piece is notable as it greatly impacts people’s understanding of reality. The series’ world-building is heavily reliant on newspapers, which are delivered by News Coos. Additionally, Big News Morgans plays a crucial role in the new networks of the series and effectively generates hype by manipulating the truth.

Morgan’s decision to depict Luffy as the culprit in the Egghead Situation mirrored his previous actions. Despite successfully evading the World Government’s grasp thus far, the escalation of consequences and the Five Elders’ decision to take matters into their own hands suggest that Morgans’ news network may also suffer consequences.

@3SkullJoe, a user on Twitter, has shared a theory proposing that Big News Morgans may be influenced by Vegapunk’s broadcast and utilize it to launch their own news broadcast.

Throughout the One Piece series, propaganda has consistently played a significant role in influencing people’s understanding of reality. Manipulations and cover-ups can result in the complete distortion of truth, as evidenced by the use of “Gold Roger”instead of “Gol D. Roger”and the unjust labeling of Noland as a liar despite his honesty about the City of Gold.

The impact of Vegapunk’s speech remains uncertain, as some individuals, such as those in Mock Town, are already skeptical of its validity. The omitted portions of the speech present an opportunity for Morgans to spread his own propaganda, possibly distorting people’s perception of the truth. As a powerful figure, Morgans is capable of manipulating global perception and shaping the future.

The World Government will probably try to censor Morgans’ publications, but it seems that he has already defied their commands and is currently evading authorities, as he is now involved in the Vivi plot. This may result in the closure of the World Economic Journal, thus making Morgans an illicit broadcaster. If the WG becomes increasingly authoritarian, it would make logical sense for them to seize complete control over the media.

There is a strong possibility that the news distribution system in the world of the series will undergo a complete transformation. This would have a major impact on the world, potentially bringing an end to the reign of News Coos. In the event that newspapers are no longer in operation, Morgans may seek out alternative methods to spread news, perhaps drawing inspiration from Vegapunk’s broadcasting techniques. He could potentially establish a new media empire through television.

Propaganda plays a crucial role in the storytelling of One Piece, as it not only entertains, but also greatly influences how key events and characters are perceived. The headlines created by Morgans are carefully crafted to generate maximum hype, controversy, and excitement, even if they may not always be entirely truthful.

Despite the fact that Morgans is able to insert his own propaganda into the missing parts of Vegapunk’s speech, this manipulation holds immense power in distorting public understanding. It has the potential to shape global perception and influence future events. However, Morgans’ defiance of World Government censorship complicates his role.

As a response to the growing tyranny of the World Government and their control over media, Morgans may choose to alter the format of news coverage. The decline of newspapers and News Coos could pave the way for a new media empire, which would be transmitted through the Den Den Mushi. This change would greatly impact the dissemination of news within the established world of the series, showcasing Morgans’ pivotal role in manipulating the truth and influencing the consequences of Vegapunk’s speech.
