I'm a long time lurker and finally joined a few months ago.
A little about me:
I have worked for the MSM for over 20 years. I have been on the scene of several noteworthy events in American history during that time: the Waco
standoff, OJ Trial, Tim McVeigh trial, JonBenét Ramsey Kidnapping, Columbine Shooting, not to mention all the Superbowls, Presidential visits, and
Hurricanes over the years.
I have certainly seen some very sad and disturbing things during my career, and as someone who has worked for FOX News, ABC, NBC, ESPN, and even The
Weather Channel, I wanted to share just a few things that I can tell you about the MSM from an inside perspective.
I have read many threads and posts on ATS regarding the inept media outlets in the US, and have seen several accusations of cover-ups, concealment of
information, and even the fabrication of information. While my position has never given me direct access to some high level executive that's given me
marching orders from on high, I can tell you, with all certainly, that THERE IS A CONSPIRACY IN THE MAIN STREAM MEDIA!
We in the media are always told that "it's all about the ratings!", and although that part is true for revenue, there is something else going on
behind the scenes. Every assignment editor, producer, and news director knows that any story can be bent to fit a specific viewpoint, and 99% of the
viewers will blindly accept whatever they are told. It's almost a running joke. I can only attest to what I've seen first hand: stories being
scrapped for no apparent reason, stories grossly distorted to convey a completely different view, and other important stories that are not even
The only proof I can offer is 20 years worth of experiences, of which I hope to share with ATS members as the threads and time permit.
I look forward to discussing, sharing, and learning from you all!
P.S. - I just fashioned a tin foil hat into the shape of a cowboy hat, that way it keeps the rain off my face and neck as well! Might as well be a
functional kind of crazy, right?
