turn off the news
… and leave it off.
Seems like with every other incident – big or small – the media jump on the chance to tell us how we (who are not involved) are thinking and feeling about, and reacting to, same incidents. After that they start providing numerous corrections for all that, according to them, is wrong with us. The original incident – whatever it is/was – is all too often lost in a blur of empty words along the way.
No need to focus on any particular subject or media … it is pretty much the same across the board.
Accusing others for spreading conspiracy theories, seems to be especially popular these days, and we get same
theories served in quite some details, as if we care.
If media personalities have such good insight in other people's minds and conspiracy theories, why can they not keep these to themself instead of spreading quackeries about them? What is the point in doing more of what they say is wrong?
whichever way the wind blows…
Never expect media institutions to pay attention to historical facts and/or stay true to a course,
unless they can use any of it to their advantage. They also expect us to forget all they said last time they told us what to think, and
immediately switch our minds onto what they say now.
180 degree turns at any given time, is the norm in media, and once they have chosen side they tend to keep at it no matter what happens and/or changes along the way.
No use in calling out media institutions on any of their contradictions, as they always represent the right side, and always release the only true facts to the public. Everyone else, including competing presenters, always got it wrong and should be ridiculed for not understanding and accepting the perfect logic and sacred science behind whatever the only truly reliable presenters deliver.
local vs. global…
I may look at news outlets mainly from a national point of view, but do not see much deviation in what comes our way from other parts of the world. Thus, I allow myself to conclude that media institutions behave pretty much the same way, and are equally locked in by the limited interests of the few, across the globe.
With that in mind it does not matter much who they are and what they deliver. If the subjects matter to us we will have to perform our own fact-checking of them anyway. Being knowledgeable has always been a good thing for us end-users, and these days more than ever. Just don't tell anyone…
No really trustworthy media outlets in the world? Well, that depends on what one means by
The old rule that “90% of everything is crud”, still seems to hold true, and I have not found
any exceptions for media institutions in that rule. Taking any of them at their words, will be highly
irresponsible if it is facts one is after.
That some of what we are being flooded with from various news-desks can be quite entertaining, is another matter entirely. Just wish they called the fillers what they really are…
who are sound skepticism dangerous for?
The various techniques used to stigmatize those of us who do not accept everything presented by
authorities and “reliable media” without asking questions and checking with other sources, are signs of
seriously degenerated societies with decay and root-rot at the top levels.
Ridiculing or just stupefying the person who objects to or just questions what comes from above, instead of dealing with the real issues at hand, is the first line of defence used by media personalities, “experts”, and people in power, when they feel they are losing ground in public discussions. That is; if they dare to appear in person in fora where real discussions based on knowledge take place.
Well-known “divide and conquer” methods are applied against all groups of people who choose to think and work
for and by themselves, rather than rot in awe in front of whatever object or device the superiorly
knowledgeable beings in media institutions use to push carefully selected and adjusted facts of the day
through to us.
Most of those accused of serving conspiracy theories will at least show up in person to present their theories and the data behind them to the public … if the thought police allow them to attend that is.
Well, there are some out there who take various conspiracy theories serious enough to try to sensor and block everyone who openly expresses disagreements with the official policies and lines of thought. Thus, one has no choice but to conclude that many of the diverging data, theories and opinions most likely are very real, even if that conclusion is based solely on the type and amount of resistance and suppression they are met with. And when going through the actual raw data from all sides in depth, that conclusion holds up extremely well on a rather high number of the most important issues that affect our societies today.
Must say that I find watching the herd of politically correct people streaming in to play in their by
now pretty gory-looking sandboxes, both locally and globally, more than a little bit boring, and also quite disturbing and
depressing at times.
Guess I can stand to watch the nonsense for a while longer though, as long as I can keep myself and mine on the sideline.
