It gets lonely being me. Even the most well meaning people try to counter my claims that the state of the U.S. media is much worse than most people understand. Many times people try to â€œteachâ€ me about my misconceptions and paranoia. They do this by citing some very important issues that are being covered by the media. They also do this by showing me how the media is also reporting negative news about George W. Bush and is therefore being fair and doing their job.
Then comes the fun part. This is usually where I start to recite the unreported aspects of the issues being cited by my well meaning (and ill meaning) correctors! It usually takes about one or two sentences before a confused look appears on the newly silenced faces of these not so sage media analysts known as oblivious opinionated Americans.
Let me say this as a fact; no matter how much news appears to be reported by our media the campaign of informational control and massive deception is continuing full force. Here are two little examples.
- During the 2004 election fraud campaign season many people appeared on TV and in the media to voice opposition to the Bush/Cheney cabal or to support Skull & Bones member John Kerry. Well, think back; who got the most attention? Michael Moore, Susan Sarandon, the Dixie Chicks, Alec Baldwin, Barbara Streisand & maybe a rapper or two. Now think of who did not get the attention that they deserved? Let us start with the 27 senior military leaders and diplomats that were warning the nation of the damage the Bush administration was doing to both national security and international relations! Then let us move on to the 4000 plus scientists including 23 Nobel Prize winners who signed a declaration condemning the Bush administration for misusing, suppressing and distorting scientific advice. Now ask the average American if Michael Moore opposed Bush. Then ask if any military leaders or scientist opposed Bush and wait for the confusion.
- Now let us look at the mediaâ€™s â€œcoverageâ€ of the most serious issue to face Humanity; Global Warming. This is an issue that may prove to end life on Earth and who is the media focusing on? Al Gore; a political figure. The 4000 scientists that I mentioned are nowhere to be found in the mediaâ€™s coverage of this issue. Neither is the Pentagon report that informed George W. Bush that climate change is our greatest threat and will destroy us. It said that climate change over the next 20 years could result in a global catastrophe costing millions of lives in wars and natural disasters.
So when you are watching all this â€œnews coverageâ€ with Al Gore being the focus of the issue, think about the elements of the issue that are not being reported. Then understand that what you are seeing is not a news media that is coming around and trying to do their job; you are watching the continued assault on America by our greatest enemy: The US Corporate News Media! Think about it!
