elite government media rich in a nutshell

I would like to pose a question to all those 'informed' funny junkers that knew this SO far ahead of time.

If, in fact, this was common knowledge to you and the circles you run with, why is it you did nothing? I mean if there was blatant lies being thrown around, and you are so morally strong, why have i not seen any rallies? Any protests to demand a stop to the lies? Not even one nut job conspiracy militant group has attempted a coup of the US government. Why, if this is such a serious problem and half of the US already knew about it, was no action taken?

Well, where are all the people at the rallies now? I can't count anymore how often I have seen people call Snowden a "hero", yet I don't see millions protesting in front of the White House. I think that's why "Internet Activism" is so popular now. It allows people to keep their asses glued to their chairs while believing they are doing "something" when they are essentially doing nothing.

And yes, I do think that people should have realized that something was wrong when it turned out that the US media was not allowed to show the coffins of American soldiers.

because so few American people actually know their rights and how the law can effect them. they believe the law has most control over them when in fact they have the most control over the law but the government is changing that with every bill and every new law they pass. if people would read up on their own right and figure out what they could do they would realize that we as the people have the right to overthrow our government if we believe it to be too corrupt or if we want someone else in office or just a new form of government. its in our constitution that when the people who elect these officials see them doing wrong we have the right not as others in office impeaching but as citizens of this country who vote for these officials we have the right to overthrow our government and by law they can do nothing but we know they would try to stop it because they are greedy ***** who love the amount of power they have. its gonna take a lot of firepower and basically another civil war before the government actually has any real change. I hate fighting and war but those elected officials have so much power and love it so much that they would fight to keep it so if fighting is what it took then until people begin to realize they need to stand up a small coup isn't gonna do anything but end in disaster

The question remains, why haven't you done anything? Went out there onto the streets an informed people of their rights? Told them a revolution is needed? Why are you just sitting at a computer telling me this and not the masses, the oppressed and downtrodden? Go out there and fight this oppression, stop talking and start doing. If you can.

ive tried in my own way. I cant currently go into the streets and tell people because I live in the back woods country area and I have no car. but I plan on moving to a city area and helping out however I can. bringing as much information as I can to people who need to know and making them realize what needs to be done but until then ill do what I can through the internet. it may not be much but spreading the news to as many people as possible is enough for the time being

Well, my parents always told me I was lacking info on current events since I never watch the news. Better to have no knowledge of it than having false knowledge.

Disagree. Go read a variety of news sources. Sure, you can never be sure what you get is correct but you can be damn sure you will closer to the truth than simply reading nothing or just one source. Some of my favourites that you may wish to consider include: www.smh.com.au/, www.independent.co.uk/, [url deleted] [url deleted] [url deleted] [url deleted] [url deleted]

Disclaimer: I am Australian and definitely left/libertarian leaning. Also, I have only just started reading the newyorker so I can't really strongly comment on its validity, however it seems to be mainly informed commentary, which is enjoyable on some levels

But Cnn is run by Time Warner, and Fox is run by Newscorp. Two seperate companies.

really... despite no mention of the network or its pundits in the original article you just had to wedge in a jab at fox news, you're being just as manipulative as the media you condemn

What's the best international news channel? I know not any of them are completely unbiased, but my personal preference would be Al Jazeera or Russia Today.

Also, from one of my previous comments, American news media nowadays is redundant, consistently surmising, highly opinionated, entirely localized and all the reporters treat it like theater. I think we are knee-deep in ********.

i used to watch al jazeera too, but they were recently bought by big UK media. I'd recommend watching only russia today. I also listen to Alex Jones (the guy who yelled at Pierce Morgan). His stories are really good and he gets good sources and the real truth. Just try to ignore the anti-liberal propaganda and just listen to his stories

You're looking at a photo that talks about the mainstream media functioning as a propaganda outlet. The story seems to check out if you look into it further. Then you defend the actions of the media to mislead the public. Yeah, I'd say that you're a sheep.

Yes the media is trying to not let dumb asses like you know what's really going on because then you and other pricks would go revolt against it. Some peoples only job is to figure out what is the best action for this country to take to defend itself from psychotic maniacs. And they do this so this world is not just one big "dog eat dog" hellhole like it used to be some odd five hundred years ago. THEN there are people like "anonymous" (aka terrorists) who are trying to bring down the government and **** heads like you join them in the tear down. Seriously people open your ******* eyes for once and see that the government is doing the BEST ******* job keeping our asses safe!! But no you guys jump on the "anonymous" hype train because someone said it was "cool". Well I think the government should take all your ******* freedoms away because YOU HAVE NO ******* CLUE HOW TO USE THEM RIGHT.

Lol, I don't even watch the news. Why should I give a **** if they're just figuring this out?
But go ahead and think you're superior because I'm not mad over **** that has nothing to do with me, unlike you.

Pfffft. you probably think anarchy would solve all of our problems.

I highly doubt Fox reports what the regime tells it too since the regime has already made several attempts to silence it.

FOX is just a propaganda machine, like all the others. It's probably the worst one of them all.

Well, you can start by watching the documentary, "outfoxed".

Also, Fox News might appear to be critical of the government, but it's not on the stories that are actually important. It's all superficial, and Fox is truly no more "republican" than CNN. There is no difference between the two political parties, which work in tandem for the same thing. That's why I only vote 3rd party, and always will no matter who is running in the major parties.

I don't really listen to anything on the news besides local stuff (like fires, amber alerts, weather, etc) but when I do occasionally listen to what's going on in the world I don't automatically believe everything the news station is telling me.

Ok this may be interesting, but who the hell didn't know this was going on? This isn't really news. The lobbyists had CNN & Fox in their pockets since Ted Turner started spreading his cheeks for conservative bribe money.

Okay here's the thing, the US constitution supports the freedom of speech. That's why she can go off and say these things.
However, the US says nothing about paying off people to give false truths, or lies or withhold information. In fact, due to the freedom of speech, it encourages it allows it.

I like how they threw Fox in there, because hey why not?   
   
Every other news outlet in America can be biased and ******** as ****, but it's okay because "Hey, at least we're not Fox!"   
   
I promise I'm not saying this because I like Fox News. I don't. I'm just tired of them being the whipping boy of American media while everyone else does the exact same ****.
