This is why I do not watch/read mainstream media.

Same, I've got a pretty big TV screen but I never watch regular television anymore, only use it to play games or watch movies. it's very obvious mainstream media wants to control the spread of information their way, and it's why right now 'controversial' videos on places like YouTube get targeted because it doesn't want the general public spreading facts about the real world, rather it wants to buy that right.

But the internet now is to big now to let mainstream corporations take that away, people find ways of getting around it.

Was she pretty? ;-)  Stats show that half the Internet is email spam, the other half is porn.

So many bug-a-boos. Fuckin' neurotic. But faithfully toeing the party line.

Some people don't toe the party line - they snort it...

Harps about mainstream media for being biased/non-credible ==> replaces it with bogus tabloid that is even worse.

Media of any kind will be used by its owners and benefactors to sow societal fabric and tailor it towards a particular point of view. It has been like that since its inception. It's nothing new. It indeed is very obvious.

The trick is to be a smart, informed viewer; to filter out the junk, the unwanted viewpoints. That's a much better approach to replacing reputable "mainstream" sources like NYT, WaPo, and WSJ with Alex Jones and Breitbart.

Even worse than mainstream media.

So you rather listen to non-fact checked, admittedly biased (or more often, not admittedly) sources with no accountability that is written by people without formal journalistic training telling you to be afraid over organizations that base their entire reputation on fact checking their information and upholding certain standards, all while generally admitting their bias but leaning not too far from centre either way.

All while saying other people are biased and only you have the true truth.

Fucking brilliant.

All news media is propaganda, pure and simple. If I hear about a piece of 'news' and I want to join the discussion I do my own independent research.

But I'll be damned if I'm going to take anyone else's account of what happened as gospel.
