Mainstream Media Fails Again!
04 Jan 2006
Modified: 05 Jan 2006
Newspapers and television news blew it again! Covering the trapped miners and their demise.
I Read the Milford Daily News at work today. The first section of the "rags" back page, read. "12 miners alive." Also, check this MSM article out: http://news.monstersandcritics.com/northamerica/article_1073276.php/12_t
Before I went to work? CNN told me everyone perished, except the youngest. A 27 year old man.
Constantly, we're being fed bland news. At best.
I've come to realize the media is on a dumb down the public campaign. And doing a good job of it.
One major point? 9-11, and the overwhelming evidence of our government participating in this criminal act.
The Patriot Act was from 9-11's tragedy. This UN-Patriot Act takes every one of our rights away from us. For no reason at all! Imagine an FBI agent kicking in your door. Handing a letter to you. And ransacking your home. You can't do nothing about it. You can't tell anyone about it. (The letter tells you that.) And they find nothing. They leave. IF THEY FIND ANYTHING ILLEGAL? THEY CAN ARREST YOU FOR IT! Scary? Yeah. And the Patriot Act has this law built into it! I won't go into the latest. The NSA wiretapping and evesdropping!
Where's our media?
Both of these serious incidents should be of concern to every American in this country. Drop the Party loyalty. This IS about our Freedom and Democracy!

I think the media is good overall. Look at how they cover abortion. That's fair.

MSM is a sellout to corporations and the Bush Administration. Real news is on the Web. Not in American newspapers or television.
Abortion? How about the hundreds of thousands that are killed and wounded by handguns every year?
Let's get real. Without journalist probing real issues? That affect our democracy and freedom? We're in big trouble.
The media sucks!

Anark media fails more often. Just look at how you fuckheads were sending love letters to Stanislaw and then you found out he turned bitch. Boy were you surprised.
