Some journalists are fools, they are emotional, illogical, bitter and nasty - they may be on TV or radio, but they have no integrity and are a laughable source of (hyper-bias) information.


To be fair, Sean Hannity has said on camera that he never claimed to be a journalist.

An excellent point. A growing number of people seem to be unable to tell the difference between news, editorial opinion, and polemics. Legitimate news media present editorials to make the reader aware of their biases. Polemical media present opinion as fact.

I know that those of us on the left will never get the star or flag count of the teaming masses here.

I look at it the way I did when I made the honor roll for the first time and some kids said I was a nerd.
I had to accept there were fewer members in the club I was in.


So, you are star and flag "marginalized" because you are special and have a superior intellect? That's gotta be tough. Dang mean ol' teaming ignorant masses can't see genius for what it is.

FYI: Manufactured political propaganda is not a free press but a controlled and weaponized propaganda arm.

Should "weaponized propaganda" be banned? Censored? Who determines whether it is propaganda or not? (I assume you are advocating banning or punishing "weaponized propaganda," ie; viewpoints you violently disagree with.)

How about you define for us in your own words what "propaganda" is.

PLEASE.

Thanks.

And who is the ultimate arbitrator on what is and isn't "weaponized propaganda"? I hope you know there is a reason our founding fathers never made an idiotic distinction like this.

Could you please link to an example of me, as you put it, "endlessly working to socially engineer US into a divided nation hell bent on militaristic global imperialism while ourselves getting economically raped endlessly by the Bankster cartel + Two Party System + ETC, etc?"


I already posted two links which go far beyond driven in PROVING it (check my sig if you somehow forgot).

That duo has what 16 build-up threads as part of the effort, many of which are themselves 'mega threads'.

And that's just one project of mine. Shall I post more? I didn't actually set about "spamming" your thread with my works here.

You've seen em, and the allegations about your post history unless you're an amnesiac then you know what you've done.

The problem starts with unconstitutional laws and EO's that allow IC propaganda into the newsroom. Yeah, it presents a pickle. Kills "free press" right there don't it? Yes it does.

The easy part is, in this particular instance, that by allowing propagandists into the "free press" we don't have to guess what is propaganda or not...we just need to get the IC alphabets out of the newsroom.

Ah. I see that you are having comprehension problems. You have asserted that I, personally, have labored to do these things. Please show where I, personally, have done that on these boards.

So you are advocating censorship, even of other government departments? Who decides?

Well are you advocating for govt propaganda or a free press? You seem confused now. The two DON'T mix.

I'm advocating a true free press and the wholesale personal rejection of manufactured political propaganda.

Propaganda is an attempt to persuade rather than inform. It may be factual or not, depending on the situation. Attempts to persuade are constitutionally protected speech. The freedom to persuade is a necessary part of the political process. Yes, even ridiculous attempts to sell you toothpaste by claiming that it makes you sexier is constitutionally protected, although there have been regulations put in place to prevent outright lies in advertising in order to protect consumers. Ad men find loopholes, of course.

What is your definition of propaganda, and how are your threads not propaganda, given that they are always a one sided attempt to persuade?

You are the one who is confused. You are the one arguing for censorship, not me.

Be sure to do the same.

We shall start with:

Five Core Principles of Journalism
-Truth and Accuracy. Journalists cannot always guarantee 'truth', but getting the facts right is the cardinal principle of journalism.
-Independence.
-Fairness and Impartiality.
-Humanity.
-Accountability.


Does that describe the corporate MSM to you?

Which? Does FOX not fit that mold, but CNN MSNBC NYT WaPo etc etc do fit that mold?

What about the First Amendment does MULTINATIONAL CORPORATIONS fit the script regarding the the shaping and molding of our very collective reality?

How many examples of them smearing truth to push war propaganda to blow up the world in their imperialist agenda have to do with humanity?

When they're instrumental in ELECTIONEERING away democracy, as the bonafide propaganda arm of the Two Party System, what does that speak to "independence"???

Shall I go on?

Honestly, its actually easier to say what a "free press" is not in todays age, even though a clean definition should only take a paragraph. That's just how screwed we are, but hey, as long as the bulk of them push Democrat Party perspectives then hey lets give them all the power to rule the GD mofo world.

Here ya go:
DARK ELECTIONEERING How the DNC-MSM-RNC Work Together In Lockstep To Subvert The Nation
And dont forget to label me an RNC shill, as usual, before you scurry off (as usual).

Pretend I'm an amnesiac. Present evidence for your accusations or admit there is none.

If you advocate for free press without borders, aka weaponized propaganda, you are advocating for brainwashing and indoctrination, losing your freedom of thought.

You decided.
