Again, Transgender is not a mental illness, it is not just "Indulging an adult" or "Pushing an Agenda"

calling her a freak does that make you feel better about yourself? above her? above anyone of us in the LGBTQ community? it's her body, her soul and her being her authentic self

I'm sure many people don't want to see many things in the News, that doesn't make them less or more important to report on an d bring awareness too. if you don't want to read a story about LGBTQ issues, don't read it, don't watch it.... also don't put us in the same line as Pedophiles because that is just ignorance talking

The distraction of the masses by celebrity stories is hardly a new phenomenon. I am sure it has been done ever since mass media became a thing but the first time I took notice was with Paris Hilton. So I checked to see if somebody made a similar thread about her here on ATS:

2007 ATS thread on Paris Hilton: Is Paris News Media Manipulation?

Googling: site:abovetopsecret.com "Paris Hilton" currently gives me 916 results, "Justin Bieber": 793 results, "Kim Kardashian" an astonishing 7800 results - personally I still didn't get bored enough to follow any of the obvious click bait headlines to find out more about her.

Anyway S+F for your thread

Wasn't me that created that connection, you can thank Kathryn Wynn and Benjamin Levin.

And everyone that keeps bringing those ignorant connections up within context of LGBTQ stores and topics

I've got no problem with a story that's sympathetic to the plight of the misunderstood and minorities in society. Understanding equals compassion.... But I admit that I hadn't heard if this "story" and personally, I don't really give a rats. I honestly already understand that sexuality does not effect the integrity or worth of my fellow human beings. As do many of my peers.
The other stories are far more interesting to me, but maybe no less important for the millions of sheep out there that still need to learn to not feel threatened by a person's sexuality or gender.
Alas, this story seems to be "big news" for all the wrong reasons.


Let's not forget Assange's release of some juicy info regarding the TPP.... Now that's newsworthy.

While these other news stories are worthy, I take exception with you calling Bruce Jenner's decision as being brave and courageous. Courage is laying your life on the line. Bravery is facing a life-threatening disease, knowing full well that the odds are stacked against you. What he did was nothing even close.

Let's be clear, it seems that people with craploads of money and who live in this fictitious bubble of reality, always seem to end up crazier than bat crap. If fame, fortune and the constant media spotlight make you want to undergo gender-altering surgery, then I want none of it.

I can give a care less what that human being decides to do with their life. And I certainly don't want nor do I need to be blasted with that information from every news outlet. I guess news always plays to the most sensational story, and I dare say to the lowest common denominator of people they think tune in to watch or listen.

What utter garbage and nonsense to have spent more than 5 seconds on this.

To me, none of this is news. Jenner, CIA, Governments doing underhanded deeds, golden bongs.......it's all been done before. Boring.

News is the report or reports of something that is done or found, that has never been done or found before, and then expanding on that. Learning how it was done, and then taking it further. Invisible plasma tubes and how they were priven to exist......skeletons that fly in the face of conventional wisdom, and how exactly they were found so the act can be duplicated. Things along those lines.

But I guess it's good to know that Bruce has a long lost sister. I just don't care about being a fly on the wall during the reunion.

Do any of those missed media stories affect you personally? Who are they really a big deal for? They are a big deal for those they affect.


Well, numbers 1 and 2 affect EVERY American citizen that has any regard towards the (stolen) right of privacy along with large swaths of the Constitution and every American tax payer will be footing the damn bill to fight (yet another) enemy the IMBECILES in DC created per article No. 10.

The Jenner story? Honestly and truly could not care less one way or the other. "You made a major change in your life and want attention for it?" Oh praise be, now please shut the hell up, athlete formerly known as Bruce, and move on with your new happier life. In less than a month's time he's become more exposed and, arguably, more annoyingly omnipresent than his broad assed step daughters have been. Then again, I find most celebrity news and worship to be about as personally welcome as stubbing your toe on an ottoman sitting in the middle of a pitch dark room at 3 AM.

Well there are certainly a place for a consideration about how MSM should portray. Yes Medias are Bias, unreliable and are ridiculously concealing some major topics but I assume Caitlyn Jenner's news should be one of the leading news for change on transgender's growing issues on it's right and equality. so, don't pull an individual to raise concerns over MSM's lack of responsibilities.

I don't read, watch, or listen to the news. I still get a small % of it 'indirectly' via forums and RSS that I'm part of for other reasons.

I had heard of probably 7 of the 10 allegedly not/under-reported stories, despite this. So I don't know how not/under-reported they actually are.

This situation with a few trivial news stories replacing nearly everything-else is a valid issue in general though and I recall noticing this many, many years ago when Paris Hilton was the one in the news. If ever there was a less newsworthy personality... it make me think of Philip K. Dick's book (Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep) and the Replicants on radio.

Facebook, by the way, is so obviously a social media experiment, given their very, very curious and limited choices in headline news, it would be interesting to see the data they collect. They have certainly been a Jenner story promoter.

I think Jenner's story however is far more interesting to most people than a lot of negative and warfare stuff, much of which is only happening well outside the circle of peoples' ordinary lives.

I recall an episode of "Last Week Tonight" that had the excellent point that the secret to getting literally anything past the American public was to make it boring.

I heard all of these stories except 7,8,9 on msnbc this week. That doesn't mean they didn't cover 7,8,9 but I didn't hear it. I guess though that the conservative media wouldn't cover most of those stories. However even though I support mr/ms Jenner's to choose how he/she wants to live, frankly I am sick of hearing about it.

caitlyn doesn't look very womanly to me.. I think she/he would have been better off staying as a man but that's just my observation.

Why the Media keep pushing this 'Transgender' & 'gay' thing is beyond me now...

Can I add one more to the list of stories that didn't get much attention this week?

The Greek crisis stepped up a notch when there were rumors of a default. Greece was supposed to make a payment Friday but failed to do so. Instead, they made the decision to bundle the 4 payments and pay it all at the end of June:

money.cnn.com...

"German Chancellor Angela Merkel held emergency talks this week with top officials from the IMF and European Central Bank to craft a proposal to break the deadlock. But discussions with Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras failed to produce a breakthrough.

"Analysts said the decision to delay the IMF payment marked a significant escalation in the crisis. Just hours earlier, Tsipras had signaled it would go through."


Tsipras gave every indication that they would make the first payment Friday so this new decision has suprised many.

i would think facing the negative opinions of so many would take a certain amount of personal bravory
probably in amerka jenner will face more antagonism in the aggregate then the average soldier will invading an innocent country to make some(media) mogul(s) rich
