If you watch mainstream news 1 hour you will see 25 minutes of news the rest is advertising. also mainstream news spends a great deal of time on
entertainment, they have cut the amount of real news. They also always show one side of the story and really very little of the other side. Mainstream
news is owned by 6 corporation and IMO you can now call our news the corporate media. They show you what they want to. The shock and gore is a
tactic to get you to watch and think you are getting real news. Talk about controlling, these corporations who sell you things and some also sell
war machinery have promoted the war in Iraq and also Afghanistan. You are going to find watered down facts at best on the mainstream news and only the
side of the story they want you to believe.
If you want real news watch Free Speech tv it is run entirely from donation from people, no corporate sponsors nor do they accept government funding.
There is also no advertising whatsoever on this channel. It has news programs and also addresses other issues such as sex (not porn). Right now it
is on the dish and direct but they are trying to branch out so they can be seen by more people. Here is a link to one of their news programs you can
watch it online www.democracynow.org...
and probably find out if it is shown on some of your channels you have. Here are few of their stories
