New Media: This Ain't Your Corporate Media Anymore! by Linda Milazzo

May 5 2007

The resounding moment of truth during Thursday's Reagan-raptured debate came when Texas Congressman Dr. Ron Paul said he preferred Internet reporting to mainstream media, then strongly defended the need for Internet freedom and independence.

When asked the question, "Do you trust the mainstream media?" Dr. Paul instantly replied:

"Some of them [mainstream media]. But I trust the Internet a lot more. And I trust the freedom of expression and that's why we should never interfere with the Internet. That's why I've never voted to regulate the Internet even when there's the temptation to put bad things on the Internet. Regulation of bad and good on the Internet should be done differently. But there's every reason to believe we have enough freedom in this country to have freedom of expression and that's what's important..."


And this is why the powers that be are trying to put a lid on the internet.

The lame duck media is the only thing keeping lame duck Bush and his lame duck buddies a float. Without the MSM crutch, they would all be shown as the lame ducks they are. Thanks to the Internet, those with half a clue know how lame they all are. What an embarrassment they must be to their puppet masters. Ha!

You are so right SI. It is the lame duck MSM that keeps the lame duck administration in power.

Will we ever have an honest media again? Besides the internet, that is.

I doubt it. They've had a death grip on the media for far to many years. The internet is the only alternative. For years it was those old pre-movie news reels. Now it is the TV, which is the best propaganda machine ever invented.
It isn't just they don't want people to know certain things, but it is more of a constant conditioning.

Yes, constant propaganda turns into reality in many people's minds. That is why I am constantly fighting lies being hawked as 'the real truth'. And that is why I am sloughed off as 'one of those liberals' who can't possibly understand the truth.

It is so tiring--yet to not keep putting reality out there is even more damaging. Someone has to keep telling the truth--just as we all do.

Breath deeply, and here we go again.
