Our commercial media couldn't care less, and have not explored this atrocity at all. They don't seem to care at all about the proliferation of truth - our commercial media. In fact, our commercial media has been parrotting the lies of the rich and powerful throughout my lifetime, but especially since 911 and all those poisoned anthrax envelopes some of our media received.
Now, our commercial media is telling us we're all going to die if we don't stay in our homes and stop congregating with other people. Whatver you do, don't organize!
This media has already made it clear that it doesn't care about the truth getting out there to the masses of people.
Why are the masses of people supposed to believe anything that commercial media puts out there?
(tldr: Our information sources have lost their credibility at the exact time that humans require accurate information about the human condition. Uh-oh)
Q, I think this is succinct and accurate.
I studied journalism as a young woman in my undergrad years. I think I was two classes from a major in journalism. I refused to make it my profession exactly because of what you replied here. It is an instrument of capitalist for profit servile manipulations and violates the public's trust.
Only cynical people who in someway believe in the US system and accept capitalism being part of the press's agenda work in those outlets. Some of them like Fox News in that movie with Megyn Kelly and the other women who literally gave oral sex to Roger Ailes in order to keep their positions? Says it all about those journalists.
I think the press is being angered by how many people are questioning them and reviling them publicly.
Independent media has a place. It is not a place for getting rich or being instrumental in the halls of power.
I rather like this medium Q. Just being in the mix with other people who have differing points of view.
i prefer international discussions. If you got to the many websites where it is strictly national politics the views tend to be more conformist.
I met you here? That is all I need to know I made the right decision to join up.
