The “mainstream media” which I choose to refer to as the “lame stream media” has begun to reload their proverbial guns to wage all out war on this country, our Constitution, and our way of life. Bias has been present for as long as news has been reported, only recently has this bias taken over in such a way that it is beginning to completely brainwash society as a whole. The worst aspect of this brainwashing is that many don’t even realize it’s happening. All to often the “lame stream media” is able to twist stories in such a way that they are able to play on people emotions. As a result people become emotionally involved in the story forgetting to let fact and logic weigh in.
With the advent of the Internet and the 24/7 news cycle, news never sleeps. As this is the case a variety of news outlets have come to the forefront including Fox News, MSNBC aka MSLSD, CNN and countless local news outlets. This has provided the viewer with a variety of options as to how they decide to watch and listen to their news. This is where we the people must become more knowledgeable in regards to what we choose to watch. It is essential that we become well versed in the various twists each of these networks put on stories and even more so, what stories they decide to report on in the first place.
All too often many of the news outlets only report on specific stories that play into their specific agenda. This agenda I speak of refers to who is pulling the strings of each news outlet. It has become all to prevalent that MSNBC is more left leaning while Fox News is more right leaning. As a result we must be able to form our own educated opinions while watching either news outlet. I also have become quite partial to Glenn Beck’s new network called The Blaze as this seems to be one of the most honest and straightforward news outlets available today.
Regardless of how you choose to get your news, it is more important today than it has ever been that you become informed as to what is really going on in the world today. Whether you choose to take up the progressive or liberal mindset (I can’t think of any reason why anyone would do this) or a more conservative or libertarian mindset, do your homework and inform yourself. Do not let yourself be brainwashed by any single news outlet. I’m sure if you do your homework and understand the principles from which this country was founded you will end up on the “right side” and take up the conservative, libertarian movement with me and my fellow patriots!!
