You failed entirely to correctly read Kali74s post.
Kali74 did not just state, absent qualifiers and clarification, that the MSM tells the truth. What they said was, that one has to learn how to strip
MSM content down to its raw bones, to remove the spin, and be left with the truth alone, absent bias. This is why I read information from all over the
world, from every "side" of the political divide, in order to come to a more complete and accurate, nuanced understanding of matters than I would
have, if I limited myself either to the MSM, or the underground, digital media exclusively.
The MSM DOES tell the truth. It spins it, biases it, messes around with it, skews the MEANING of the facts, but the facts are present more often than
they are not, as any independent and bias free examination of those facts, can attest. But only by reading beyond the MSM, do you get the background,
the nitty gritty. This requires work, an awful lot of man hours of effort, a willingness to put that effort in, and an unwillingness to only absorb
media that seems to state what you thought in the first place.
The problem with many of the sources on the net at the moment (like Infowars, just as an example) is that yes, they also state facts, but those facts
are entirely buried beneath an entirely invented narrative, which fails just as roundly to relate in anyway to reality, as the MSM fails entirely to
be honest about what the facts actually MEAN, and WHY the facts are as they are. No one in the MSM, or for that matter, the alternative press, seems
to want to deal directly with matters like the War on Terror, in an unbiased or thoughtful fashion. Most outlets refuse point blank to connect the
fact that Britain and the US have funded and equipped more terrorists since my parents were children, than they have killed or captured. No one wants
to deal with the reality, that IS are a western backed proxy army, and even when they do, they make it the Democrats fault, or the Republicans fault,
despite the fact that ALL powers in western nations have been either permitting or involved with this behaviour, especially in Britain and America.
They refuse, furthermore, to extrapolate what this REALLY means about the state of our democracies, whether or not the people are adequately in
control of their countries, or whether those nations have been co-opted out from under their citizens, by a succession of purchased goons in
parliament here in the UK, and in the Senate, Congress, and the Presidential branch of the US, as well as the intelligence agencies of both.
That goes just as much for the underground journalists, as it does for the MSM, because even those who do entertain the meaning of the facts
correctly, do not do so deeply or with significant historical understanding of the actions and effects of the actions, of those nations intelligence
activities over the preceding decades.
It is not the Democrats fault, or the Republicans fault that these things occur. The money stream that supports this situation exists independent of
parties and political blocs, is instead a product of military power growing so massive as to outstrip all powers besides it, financially speaking as
well as otherwise. That is a problem which has existed supported by BOTH major players in both your country and mine, and no one seems to want to deal
with that situation, because if they did, it would mean that people in both Britain and America, and probably some other places besides, would have to
rise up and stop it, en masse. Just enough people, however, refuse to see the wood for the trees on these matters, precisely because they have bought
either the MSM, or the underground at their word, despite the fact that neither group has the slightest will to ACTUALLY deal in truth and accurate
and intelligent, NUANCED analysis of the data and any meaning extrapolated from it.
