"When the people find they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic." - Benjamin Franklin;
"And when politicians find that honor and character matter less than buying votes and a constituency, that too will herald the end of the Constitution. When that happens we must work tirelessly to change their minds, or their occupation!" - Hoping The Blind Will See

When Did The Media Die?

You might not have noticed lately, because you might still be watching MSNBC, NBC, CBS, ABC and CNN. But the Media is dead. None of these outlets reported on the Van Jones story until after he resigned. And there were only 3 mentions of the ACORN scandal on those 5 stations combined! Yes the media, as we knew it growing up, is dead. R.I.P! But we're lucky! We have an alternative. It's called Fox News. Have you watched it, or do you just dismiss it as right-wing propaganda? I ask you, were the Van Jones and ACORN stories real news? If you say yes, then why didn't the media, outside of Fox, cover it while it was breaking? If you say no, then why did they cover it after the fact? Let's face it, there are only two reasons. First, the media outlets outside of Fox are inept. I happen to hope it's that one, because the next one is unthinkable in America. But even though I hope it's the first reason, I fear it is the second. Here it is. The second reason is because the media is just a propaganda arm of the government - you know, like they have in Cuba and China and North Korea and places like that. God help us if that's the case! What do you think? Wake Up America!

  1. Why does your website look so much like mine? Imitation is not the highest form of flattering it is the highest form of rudeness. Be a leader my friend and not a follower.
