Or, more to the point, their "sources" are us on the net.
The very people he is criticising here.
That was exactly what he was speaking out against though. It doesn't take much for someone to start an elaborate hoax on twitter, et al.
Look at the twitter account hacking a week ago and it sent the DOW spiralling downwards. Actually costing the shift of millions of dollars. (Through
the false claim of a white house attack.)
Now, on one hand, some news does get broken from sources on twitter. (Official accounts usually).
But he is speaking out AGAINST that... He wants journalists to be on the ball, to not be reposting "information" from reddit and the like.
Journalists need to get back to their roots. They need to be out making and handling sources so they are getting earlier and more reliable breaks on
The truth is though, is the internet is so good at dissemination and nearly everyone is a blogger/poster/information disseminator, that the number of
people throwing "news" out to the masses is ridiculously high.
The problem, is news agencies are being pushed and pulled by partisan backings, and corporate backings (ownership) and the truth isn't a profitable
It makes it hard to have one agency out there disseminating news, sticking the truth of the matter. It just aint worth the digital platform it's
typed on. Truth break money, not makes it. Sure if the story is damaging to an opponent, expect an agency to splatter the truth EVERYWHERE! But if it
aint, then it's just standard lackluster cover-up or spin control.
And this goes for AJ and the like too. Don't think cause AJ and RT are not your normal sources you are getting any truthier information.
You get the standard truthiness. Kinda "truth" but its gotta fit into "our NWO/Illuminati evil angle", or it aint worth posting.
You dont think people are gonna buy bug out bags and colloidal silver from our advertisers if they don't believe they are days away from being
shipped off to a FEMA extermination camp, do you?
