So you're saying you should just follow the mob instead of the watchful eye from the outside?

Just the facts. I don't want commentary. I don't need to be entertained. I don't want to see or hear from some propped individual they want to push off as a celebrity, that only regurgitate the sad script they have been provided. I don't want folks sitting around bantering, drinking, or imitating the trend of the day.

Just the darn facts.

I think legal costs, lawsuits and liability issues are going to be a major factor soon for many of these media outlets.

Stay tuned!



The MAGA hat teens who were slandered by the MSM this week are suing several outlets and Hollywood actors at 5pm tomorrow, if they don't apologize by then.

It’s hard to have sympathy when many of them are acting as propagandists and divisive shills.

I 100% agree, but didn't want to put that statement in the O.P., due to the nature of this particular forum.

Trust no one or nothing you can't independently source or verify. It's that simple.

Journalism is dead, RIP.... The major news media are all agenda driven agencies for corporate entities, they "shape public opinion" and are not interested in informing the public in any objective way.

Consider yourself warned!

Occasionally, you come across a small publication that is a real jewel. Take the Epoch Times for instance: www.theepochtimes.com... . It is clean, without annoying ads, auto-play pop-out videos. It also has high quality writers on staff.

In fact, the U.S. House has been sending closed-door testimony transcripts from Bruce Ohr, Lisa Page, and others, exclusively to Epoch Times over the past 20 days.

Good clips! One of our top Chicago news Anchors (ABC-7) resigned awhile back, because he felt they had become more of an entertainment enterprise than a news organization.

These media outlets are repurposing $$$ from salaries to prepare for incoming legal fees and settlements.
It's that simple.

I have just recently discovered the epoch times. I am still undecided on its position.

Ever since aljazeera started to lean more to the left I have been looking for a more level headed news source. Vice is my go to for investigative journalism I like Reuters as well.

Huffington Post is also eliminating the "Opinion" section from their publication.


Isn’t that their whole publication?

Yeah, but now they don't have to risk hearing different opinions.

Now add this: "Propaganda is now "lawful" and has been since Sept. 15, 2015 So the Media really isn't 'lying' per se. It is important because basically it reads "Gov't. repeals ban; spreads Gov'.t made news to Americans..." What could go wrong?

sounds like the news media is getting the message and cutting down on opinion pieces to mitigate the damage being caused by errant opinions.

You mean upping the ante and increasing on opinion pieces to cause damage by errant opinions.

The message they got is eliminate those who do not fully subscribe to their endgame programming.

That is all.

These laid off reporters should really take the time to expand their skill sets. Now would be an excellent time for them to learn to code or pick up a marketable skill.

Not to mention, the batting average of these "experts" is abysmal. Not only just in online publicans, but those who act so sure of themselves on CNN and MSNBC as well. Once advertisers begin leaving, that will hurt those two fake-news networks tremendously.

For example, Robert Mueller himself warned in 2018 that there's a lot of FAKE NEWS (aka LIES) about his investigation being peddled by our low integrity mainstream media.

I do my part to boycott products advertised on CNN, and let the product's manufacturer know that I'm not buying _________as long as they're advertising on CNN. A lot of us do this, but not enough to make a big dent, apparently.


That's what a SJW would do.
