When I say prowess, I do say it with tonge firmly planted in cheek...

The current most viewed "article" over at The Courier Mail is a smorgasboard (sic) of videos called "when weird animals attack"

Great, fine, it's a typical fluff piece we see every day on these sorts of "news" sites.

But what I found hilarious was this...

Is it the beginning of a pattern? A portent of some animal uprising soon to crash upon mankind?

Experts* say it is too early to know for sure, but a recent string of unexpected animal attack videos suggests something is brewing.

Why the asterisk?

Read on!

* No actual experts were interviewed for this story.


Then why did they call them experts if whoever it was they quoted aren't??

Bravo Courier Mail.

I am so sick of the MSM. Too many people apparently do not understand that the media are under no obligations to tell them the truth, or report on something that is occurring around the world. All MSM networks are run by a handful of corporations, with corporate interests, and because of this they are only going to report on things that first do not harm them, and second, paint them and their belief systems in a good light. I should say the belief systems of those who actually run or own the company. For instance, Murdoch said that Fox News was NOT about presenting the news, but instead about promoting an ideology. If that is not enough evidence for someone, there are plenty of documentaries out there that interview people who worked with these MSM companies, and were in the know so to speak.

Many of them were fired for not complying with this strict doctrine of lying to the people. So if you are a journalist who wishes to only report the truth, you will not get a job with a MSM company. And if you do, you will not keep it for very long. For those who do not already watch LinkTV, that is the best network for news and information that exists on this planet, bar none. THAT is the kind of media we need in this country, and in fact in all countries. They are funded by viewers only, and therefore do not do what the MSM outlets do. They tell and report only the truth because they do not have to answer to corporate morons who only wish to promote an ideology, no matter if they lie to the people in the process.

Does anyone ever wonder why so many republicans seem out of the loop? It is because these are the republicans who watch only Fox News, which is by far the worst of them all. But even democratic leaning companies do the same thing, although to a lesser extent, but they are still doing much damage. Going back to viewer supported media outlets, there have only been a handful of documentaries or speakers or news programs on LinkTV featuring a specific point of view that I have ever disagreed with...And the issue was one of gun control. Leaning towards the left of the spectrum most of the time, I am one of the liberals who does not wish to do away with our Constitutional rights, especially not one that is fundamental to our democracy's very existence. For those who do not know what that means, the 2nd amendment was put in place for no other reason than that the people need to have a way to overthrow the government if it stops abiding by the rule of law, ie the Constitution.

You really needed to get that off your chest, didn't you?
