Why You Can’t Trust the Media

If you rely on conventional media sources, such as The New York Times, CNN, CBS, ABC, or the BBC for information about the EU or the US, you will have a very shallow and biased view of what is going on in the world. What pretends to be news is merely a combination of deception, half truths, biases, counter spin and misinformation. The goal of the media now is to delude, to control and to bring fear to the masses.

Many people nowadays do not trust the media.  For example, 45% of Americans surveyed don’t buy what they read in newsprint, compared to a mere 16% twenty years ago.

Freedom of press and freedom of speech is a joke in America!  Unless you read or listen to independent sources, you can’t get the truth.  Forget getting a straight answer from corporate America.  Big media= big business.  We are rapidly becoming a nation where the government censors everything we see or hear.  Big Brother from George Orwell’s 1984 has arrived, my friends, much to my chagrin.  We might as well be living under the rule of Hitler or Mussolini.  The media is paid big bucks to hide the truth from the people of this country.  The sad thing is that 55% of Americans are still buying it.  We have become a nation of fools.

Greed has taken over the hearts of journalists.  The more cooperative you are with the government spin doctors, the more support and funding, or bribes you receive.  The government uses excuses like “threats of terrorism” and the “need for progress”.  The journalists are all Hollywood nowadays.  They might as well go back to high school and join a clique.  Where are the ethics and morals in this country?  Gone with the wind!  Journalism has gone the way of politics-corrupt and crooked.  It’s all so Machiavellian!
