A controlled opposition figure who works to corral opinion

A gatekeeper is someone who corrals opinion.

In the Manufacturing of Consent, Noam Chomsky & Edward Herman highlight how energetic debate about a rightly controlled range of opinions is a strategy used by the commercially-controlled media to delude the audience into the conviction that they have independently arrived at their point of view, when in fact it has been given to them. Chomsky himself emerged as a prominent gatekeeper after his refusal to engage on third rail topics such as the JFK assassination or 9/11.

Overton Window

Full article: Overton Window

Gatekeeping works by narrowing the spectrum of opinion, by excluding certain ideas from the Overton Window.
