So, I read this over lunch today. I stopped eating, having gotten sick to my stomach. What I can’t figure out is whether the American people are so trusting that they believe everything they see on mainstream media (MSM) or they just don’t want to discover the truth through a collective TL;DR mentality. I read Counterpunch.org on a daily basis now. I choose now to not fall into line with the rest of MSM and what they’re feeding the American public because I think its important we know what is actually happening. If all the details aren’t known, the opinion you form on what *is* known is fundamentally flawed and incomplete.
MSM is so good at delivering news to us, usually in the background, that broadcasts almost have a lulling type of cadence to them. Speech is measured, tone is even and dull, anyone listening is lured into a false sense of security and understanding. Where is all the reporting of even half of what’s in the above article on Iraq, Iran, Honduras, Syria, Yemen? Why aren’t people angry over the fact they’re getting played for idiots? Well, not being one of them, I can’t give an honest answer; I’m reading real news, I’m angry, I’m talking to anyone who’ll lend me half their attention to shake the fog that has descended over the American public. Knowledge is the power the MSM, government, politicians, and rich white privileged people don’t want “commoners” to have. The propaganda spin machine is full throttle and speeding along faster than ever in the last 100 years.
Here is the opposite side of MSM and it’s minions. When things are happening that are hard to hide from, you just ignore them. No comments, no reports, no opinions. Just play “dumb” to the few scant reports that actually get through the paid-off, sort of self-imposed, media blackout of the events. HRC has a long and verifiable history of dodging claims of impropriety, greed, war mongering, and the such. When you know the media is owned and controlled by people that are in collusion with you to feed the propaganda machine, it’s frightening easy to make up whatever story that suits your needs.
I think I’m going to create the CounterPunch diet. Read real news, everyday, and you’ll lose weight because you won’t WANT to eat anything.
