I used to wake up in the morning make a cup of tea, smoke a cigarette or a spliff if I was lucky and read “the news.” Then I used to read it again in the afternoon and watch live news streams when I was eating nowadays I don’t bother. It’s not like it was a planned thing but I noticed that no matter how much you read or watch “the news” you’re still none the wiser!
What we are usually reading is opinions or propaganda. They tell us what they want us to know and believe and anything else is forbidden by the mainstream. Bloggers, Vloggers and truthers are dismissed as lunatics as if only corporate journalism is trustworthy yet they have consistently proven to be anything but trustworthy and in recent years have moved towards just being a government mouthpiece.
I don’t think that many of the journalists even realize what they do. I think they are just carefully selected and people that think differently are slowly filtered out through the education system which is repeat or fail.
“The news” is bullshit its merely selected stories from around the world usually designed to create a reaction or justification for something much bigger and much more sinister.
The real news is governments are failing and because of this people around the world are still starving and going short while other people live in obscene luxury. Why are the media ignoring this and attacking the benefits system instead? The media go in to uproar and express outrage at people claiming benefits but completely ignore corporate tax evasion, exploitation and the low wages that people get paid.
You can’t point at a family with non working parents living in a council house claiming a couple of hundred pound a week as the problem when there are families living in Castles with dozens of houses spread all over the world. The mainstream media can.
