So you were talking about yourself when you said 'it gets a little old supporting the establishment all the time?'

 

I'm sorry, what do you mean you can't say that?

That should of had a ?

 

Maybe your not familiar with Americans?  You don't live in the USA or know what the fuck I'm talking about?

I'm familiar with americans and american media, I just don't get what you ment. I'm sorry if it is something obvious that I might be missing because english is not my first language or something. At least I am asking you to explain what you ment. But I don't know why I bother. You seem an unworthy convo partner.

Has anyone ever watched the video where Cenk Uygar of the Young Turks explains why he left MSNBC? I've been trying to post it in this thread for ages, i dunno why i'm having so much trouble..but i figured I would just give up and strongly encourage you guys to look it up.

I wouldnt exactly call it eye opening as I suspected it probably happens all the time in journalism, but it is validating I guess.

Fifty years ago, the media's job was to REPORT the news, now days their job is to CREATE the news....

Are you implying the media was more objective 50 years ago?

Nope, I saying it's the money from advertisers and politicians are dictating what's released and what isn't. DWS and the DNC are a clear definition.

There a whole lot of news channels in these days of 400 channel menus from cable and satelite subscribers.

 

There is a ton of media out there.

It would be nice to be able to trust our media to be truthful. I don't...

 

There are times they talk too much, like revealing our plans in another country defensively. Can they not see how dumb this is?  I have talked to others overseas on different message boards and the news sounds more truthful there about America than it does here. (UK, for example.)

 

Here, we have reporters and news anchors who are married to people who are in higher places. I saw this listed sometime ago on TV, and on Facebook. Not to mention who goes out together for a few cocktails after work, or maybe home with them afterwards lol.

I think it's a matter of a clique-ish nature. He wasn't "in". As I listened to his story it reminded me of a situation in the workplace many yeas ago in my life. Sometimes it's better to throw in the towel and move on.

It's better for your soul, and health.

I cannot stand the media and it's sad that it has gotten to this point. They used to read the news dn not interject feeling or opinions. What you heard were just the facts. Now every station has their views so if they are badmouthing someoe then you probably aren't going to hear the truth. I think we have turned into such sheep though that we don't realize its happening when we are listening to it.

of course we have to believe on some media .

 

i don't watch TV at all . they only produce mess and they do talk good but basically they are making our minds all the time .
some news papers and some very careful reading on internet give good information .

i don't believe on google search as well when we talk abut politics , religion and information . google earn money by campaigns as much as i observe. i have to search reverse to algorithms of google get some correct news. and also i need to view or listen two different mind set media .

The media is just another part of the problem in the US.  They can effectively lie by selectively editing video, sway public opinion by deciding what's 'newsworthy', cover one side of a story but not the other...and occasionally just plane lie the way Brian Williams did.

 

The coverage of Sylville Smith's sister calling for an end to the violence in Milwaukee, as told by CNN, is a perfect example of why I have a hard time trusting the national media. 8ppe.jpg

So what are the most unbiased news sources out there today?  There must be a few. 8ppe.jpg

There is barely any "free press" in America. Almost everything is owned by the same few elite people when you trace it back far enough. Why would I trust that? Their agenda is to divide and conquer. The proletariat have the power. So the key is to make them fight among themselves with trivial things. What bathroom does this person use for example. None of it matters and it makes people ignore reality. Anything the media tells me I assume the opposite to be true.

Just watching the news about hurricane Matthew.  Why do the newsmen always stand out in the storm to report on it, and at the same time tell people to evacuate?  They could tell me about the hurricane from the safety of the newsroom and I'd still take them seriously.

Only the select few who actually report the news unbiasedly and seriously...and you can sense who they are...These chatter boxes analyzing everything for me and telling me what to think and feel...not so much...I can do my own thinking. Just report the facts....please, if that is possible..
