As many of you know I have been out of the loop for a little while as I address a heal issue, but I have not been out of the loop when it comes to keeping track of what has been going on (and I have not been out of the loop in keeping the news page up to date! Nor have I been out of the loop when it comes to the exponential decline of the pretend news industry in our nation.
There have been many things to comment on and point out during my downtime, but I have to tell you that every once in a while I catch something that just blows me away when taken in complete context. Now, you see, I see things from a different vantage point than most people. That is why I do what I do. Things that may not be obvious to most people are obvious to me. I am like the kid in the movie â€œThe 6th Senseâ€; you know the kid who could â€œsee dead people!â€ I seem to be cursed in that unnoticed outrages seem to pop out of the scene and jab me in the eyes. All I do with my writing and speaking is point these things out. I don’t even go looking for things to point out, they just keep popping up. Only these days there are so many outrageous moments taking place (with the establishment media) that these â€œpop out and jab me in the eyeâ€ moments are starting to make me feel like I am living under a strobe light. I can’t possibly keep up with reporting all of these moments.
Now that being said I hope this little â€œpop out momentâ€ that I am sharing is not to anti-climactic…but if you really take this in the context of what journalism is journalism, national journalism, it’s importance as a Constitutionally protected entity under our so called democracy, all the important issues that exist, and all that is and is not reported to the American public by our Constitutional sentinel known as the â€œfree pressâ€, and if you include the overwhelming ignorance and stupidity of the general public in this nation, you may just understand why I found this little particular moment noteworthy.
OK, so here it is…as I was doing my duty by monitoring the TV so called news networks during their top of the hour headline runs I found that they all reported, among other things, on the status of Brittany Spears’ child custody. Brittany Spears! We are talking about a celebrity that is pretty much famous for being famous. A nothing. A nobody. Go ahead, name one song that she sung and see if it ends up on some classic music collection in 25 years. We are not talking about John Lennon here. We are talking about a blond chick with a barely passable singing voice and whose contributions to the art of music don’t even match what Rice Crispy treats are to the culinary arts. People who called themselves journalists had no problem reporting this ridicules item as news while the world around us crumbles. Sorry, maybe it’s all the medicine that I am taking but I just don’t understand how everyone around me does not see how ludicrous this is and I just don’t understand how those so called journalists are not embarrassed to death to be doing what they are doing! Think about it! Think about it! Jesse Richard â€“ Editor, TvNewsLIES.org
PERSONAL NOTE UPDATE: For the many people who have written me asking what has been going on…I will be writing a personal blog piece on what I have been going through. I think you will find it interesting and quite informative taking into account all I have learned from the experience.
Currently my pain is minimal thanks to several powerful medications, a trip to the emergency room and finally a friend who is a chiropractor, who was the only person to relieve my pain (using acupressure, nutrients and a neck collar…no chiropractic however). I’ll tell you all about this guy, who was the only person who relieved my pain to the point of not having to take powerful tranquilizers and pain killers anymore!!! I am however awaiting results of a CT scan but I am operating at 80% or so.
Again, I am sorry that the â€œdailyâ€ newsletter has been anything but â€œdailyâ€…but the news page has not lost a beat so keep checking there for news vital to all Americans. (In my opinion;-)
I REPEAT: I would like to collectively thank the many of you who have written me with words of support and encouragement. Your kind words are not only my compensation for running this website but they help to strengthen me when I am experience periods of weakness. I have always been a very strong person, both physically and emotionally. I have always been the person to fight for those who could not fight for themselves. I have always been the person to be there for those who have no place else to turn. It is overwhelming and humbling when I find myself in a position where it is I who is in need of help. I am at a loss for words that would adequately express the support and friendship of my family, friends and TvNewsLIES brothers and sisters. Your kind words mean more to me than I can describe and during this time where I am experiencing excruciating and debilitating each kind word and every moment taken by someone who cares enough to think of me will remain in my heart as a ray of eternal sunshine that lights up my existence. Thank you all beyond ability to accurately express the magnitude of my appreciation.
Thank you for understanding,
