Haha, I see what you're trying to illustrate, only issue is that you failed.
You're under the influence that people like myself believe that they have no place. That's where you are incorrect. They do report a small
percentage of very news worthy information, all mainstream media does.
THE PROBLEM, is how they portray a story, because as you said, people love their news on a silver platter, pre-digested. So when you have people
blindly accepting the slant that media has put on the information, it leads to epidemic levels of ignorance.
Furthermore, why they report something is just as important as how. They often report absolute NON ISSUES, and then sensationalize the hell out of
them, this creates a problem. The masses create a reaction. The government then creates a solution which was already planned and waiting for
This is called problem, reaction, solution, and it is extremely evident in our recent "Swine Flu Pandemic", which to date has not killed a fraction
of the people the yearly flu does, in just the United States, ALONE. Thus, the fact that it received more news coverage than the seasonal flu has in
the last 50 years combined, in just 1 month proves the hidden agenda, and the results show that it was over sensationalized, distractionary media.
Additionally, it's highly important to also consider what is not being discussed on these enlightening channels. Such as staged coups in foreign
countries, the abuse of entire countries economies by super corporations, the fraudulent use of fractional reserves and our fiat currencies, the run
away corruption of lobbying, congress and the entire government, the shadow government, the secret highly unethical and illegal practices of the CIA
and other organizing, the systematic poisoning of society through our water, food and health systems. Only the tip of the iceberg, and the list is
So for those who applaude people such as Glenn Beck for giving just one of these issues 5 minutes of air time in an entire day of Fox news propaganda
is out of their mind. Don't take the Fox jab too seriously, cause the same can be said about all of those crooks that I mentioned previously.
Thus, to say that all who regard FOX, CNN, MSNBC, And others as garbage that should be taken with a grain of salt, are ignorant lunatics is in essence
the finest form of ignorance.
Perhaps one day, you'll really learn the Media was meant for the people, not a tool to be used AGAINST the people. Anyone working to bring that fact
to common knowledge is truly doing a service to humanity.
Am I the only one who catchs the irony of the thread title?
Good luck on your ride.
