Happy Sunday to you too. Yes the news does scare people. If we allow them. They try to effect change of our policies, get people angry. They present only one side of the story. Let’s take some examples: Gun control- we only hear the bad stories,the school shootings, murder rates, old west mentiality, death of innocent people from gang shootings etc. But when do we really hear about crime being stopped by a person with a gun,people being protected, property saved, or criminals flee the scene because they don’t to be killed. Immigration- They come down on the side of the poor migrant people, how they are only trying to get work, and many more related topics. The media doesn’t define it as an invasion (Look in the dictionary for other definitions of the word), they don’t go to the day laborer sites, home improvement centers,paint stores, U-Haul, furniture stores to see that the men are falling over each other or peeing in public etc. The news media won’t report on the negative effects of MASS ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION has on the native population. I could go on this one subject but that’s not your intent of this thread or my response to it.
Other areas the media (main stream) likes to distort, tell lies, only do partial or no research, not show the other side, put down, surpress. The war in Iraq, abortion, holocaust. Question: Which has caused the most deaths? Does the media use those comparsions when talking about the sanctity of life. The Cold War,we survived that one. Global warming-32 yrs ago, it was a new Ice Age, now global warming, and some say again we are heading for an ice age. So which is it? Climate goes in stages, it always will. The news media likes to elevate so-called experts on topics i.e. Al Gore (didn’t he claimed to start the Internet?). But they fail to report on the hypocrisy of those same people. Bird flu. Terrorism-we are slowly losing our rights and freedoms for hyped-up fears. There is way too many incidents to bring out and to comment on.
No, you are not rambling on, in fact maybe you could continue on and alert other people to take a more critical view. That’s one way to keep them honest. Another way is don’t turn them on, they will lose viewers and revenue. Then maybe they will go back to being the defender of free speech and government watch dog. Not the government or big business mouthpiece. Yes, today’s newscasters are not investigative reporters anymore, but pretty boy and girl news readers. They are only reading what someone else wrote. Another thing they act like we are stupid. Sometimes,unfortunately that part is true. Nobody cares anymore.
For it might as well be,our constitutional Republic be damned.
