Continuing the corporate news industryâ€™s tradition of deception and distraction, CNN (and all the other news entities) is doing its part in the annual holiday media distraction game by pretending that the pre-holiday surge in deliveries for UPS, FedEx and Post office is news. While the criminal media spent quite a bit of time this weekend making you think that some lost hikers is something that we need to know about, in detail, extremely fine detail, they had the dedication to keep up their annual tradition of showing us how busy the parcel delivery industry is just before Christmas. This information falls under the DUH sub-category of the news distraction topic list. This year however CNN chose to tell us a lot about the canned ham industry while they were at it. Donâ€™t we all feel like better informed citizens now? Arenâ€™t you glad that after making sure you took the time to watch a news program so that you can stay informed about what is happening in the world, as any responsible citizen would, this is the information you walked away with?
In the mean time they have not mentioned the latest smoking gun memo (another one in the UK) proving that the (person who seized via election coup, the office of) president of the United States LIED US INTO WAR!
Hmmmâ€¦letâ€™s see, even though this information has been out for several days this nation has not had a single broadcast media report about yet another discovered piece of evidence proving that high crimes were committed that has resulted in massive death, the obliteration of a sovereign nation and weakening of our national security (and financial health). We are supposed to believe that there is not a single person in the entire national broadcast news industry who makes decision about the content and focus of our news, who as a journalist felt that it was more important to inform the public about the latest evidence of the many high crimes committed by a sitting president than it was to report the fate of some people who have no impact whatsoever on our nation or our world (outside of their personal circles!) Every single managing editor of every single corporate news entity in this nation decided, on their own we are to believe, supposedly without any central information controlling entity, that a press conference given by the family members of some hikers who got lost in a storm is vital news that you need to know and should be aired live!
Just to keep this in perspective news about high crimes of a sitting president, especially those that involve sending a nation to war, destroying a sovereign nation and killing at least tens of thousands of people impacts the lives of virtually everyone in this nation, a majority of the world (in a geo-political sense) and our democracy and freedom. The biggest impact that you will feel when you receive news about some stranded hikers is an urge to say â€œcoolâ€ or â€œgreatâ€ or â€œthatâ€™s a shame!â€ I mean no offense to the stranded hikers or their families but their plight is in no way national news and the feelings of the family members of missing individuals is in no measures up to what needs to be reported by journalists. While some personal tragedies are newsworthy on a national level how people feel about those tragedies is never newsworthy. Asking a family member of a missing or killed individual how they feel is never news. It is a pathetic attempt by inept non-journalists to look as if they know how to conduct interviews.
So using this weekend of hiker & delivery news as a final example can we finally admit that the entire news industry is controlled by a single source that decides what may be reported and what you are permitted to know about your world? Can we find the people who are controlling this information AND KILL THEM? PLEASE? Think about it!
