Something most people cannot see past but should, is the journalists problem with conforming to the notion that all things have "two sides."
The Hegelian notion of polarized systems of expression are exclusive suffocates nearly all modern journalists because they have been raised in a world
where everything is black or white and that's it.
There are a great many "stories" for which there is no "other side" but journalists have been so mind controlled is they have to present the "other
side" of the story even if it does not exist. This creates conflicts within those who are of a lessor mind, they will often concoct a strawman
opposing polarity which fills the need for the other polarity. During the occupy wallstreet silliness journalists defined the "banks are in power"
side by talking to nut cases and morons at these rally's using them as "the other side of the story." "One occupy wallstreeter says, "screw banks, the
elite are nothing but scum." This kind of "other side" representation, which happens all the time in modern journalism, is criminal.
Worse, the lessor journalism mind seeks out bumper sticker answers to fill in questions on one side of the polarity or the other. VICE is a system
designed perfectly around the notion of adding a sound bite to make a point about a complex problem or system, "the EPA says regulatory systems are in
place to protect the public" when asked about whether they system is flawed." That's modern journalism in a nutshell, that line is garbage, but it is
enough for modern readers to understand ALL of the issues surrounding the EPA.
Life is complex, that's the beauty of it. The fact that modern journalists have 30 seconds to get a video story out, or 2 weeks to get a written words
story out is criminal on every level. The fact they feel the need to take sides by shading their Hegelian polarities is criminal, and the fact that
our complex lives have been reduced to "tweets" as something that defines a story is obscene. Worse, modern journalists were raised in the criminal
educational system which was designed to create this very effect, so the poorly educated are under the delusion their education entitles them to
"form" public opinion due to their superior story sorting skills.
If you think I'm, take a moment to sum up your year in 30 words or less. Better yet, sum up your week in a tweet. Due full and complete justice to all
of your feelings, your interactions, your fears, your concerns, your joys. Go....
