When I was growing up, I remember Walter Cronkite on the Evening News. It seemed as though everyone knew and trusted him like he was part of the family. Those were the days when the media was seemingly honest and actually reported on events like journalsists should report on events, with honesty and a sense of pride. Today, we have all of what is known as the Main Stream Media, corporate owned business’s wjose owners also engage in lobbying in the District of Clowns. Many of us have realized that what the MSM is reporting, isn’t always (if ever) the truth. Those days of trusting the nightly news anchor are long gone, and long missed.
Today I wonder how things would be if we had the same kind of media as we did when Dick Nixon was taken down. Would Obama still be President? Would Bush and Cheney be in a Levenworth jail cell today? I have shyed away from the MSM and mostly read alternative news sites on the internet. That doesn’t mean that they are any more honest, but it would behoove them if they want to succeed as a news entity. While I remain skeptical of all the media, I do post articles mainly from the alternative media. It’s not because I believe what is written, but to get even a small discussion going.
While I am deemed a conspiracy theorist often, it’s not because I believe the conspiracy, but I don’t believe what the lying MSM is saying. Just about everything that could have a political side too it, is often reported differently by all the organizations. That may be called “Free Press” to some, but not to me. I will continue to ask questions and challenge the “Official” story at every turn. I hope you do as well 🙂
