If any of us doubted the United States media bias before, we can doubt no more! Time Magazine has removed all doubt with its newest American cover. The question of dumbing down the news for Americans is not a new one, as Time did the same thing just a few months ago. No wonder the US, the supposed beacon of liberty for the world, is rated 47th in the world for press freedom. With 6 companies owning the majority of the media in the United States, we can not be surprised at the lack of information and bias in reporting.
Just as the US government and media pushed us into the War on Terror by exploiting our fear and anger after 9/11, they are now beating the war drums on Iran. Here is an interview by Russia Today with former Bush adviser Richard Perle in which the reporter asks why North Korea gets a pass while Iraq was invaded and Iran is economically sanctioned because they might have a nuclear weapon. Why are our own reporters not asking these tough questions about preemptive wars? Could it be because the mainstream media is concerned not with investigating but with pushing an agenda? The Corbett Report gives us a brief history of media warmongering in the following video. The mainstream media continues to insult our intelligence everyday by ignoring or ridiculing Ron Paul’s campaigning success. Jon Stewart talked about the mistreatment of Paul by the media months ago. The video is even funnier now that many of their “top tier” candidates aren’t even in the race anymore. When asked why people call him “kooky,” Dr. Paul responded, “They do use those terms because they can’t defend themselves intellectually.” This video shows how the media will even go so far as to discredit their own polls if Ron Paul wins to convince you to vote for a more viable candidate. We must not allow any person to limit our options to two sides of the same coin; must not choose the lesser of two evils; choose good. I will vote for a president who has the voting record to back up his promises, end the war, cut the budget, audit the Federal Reserve, etc.
Our government and media work in tandem to brainwash us everyday. Break out of the trance! Say no to Big Brother propaganda. Fight SOPA, PIPA, and ACTA. If you’re not sure where to start or who to trust on the internet, here are some reliable sources to check out. Some are biased, as will be noted, but are still good starting points so you can do the research and decide for yourself what reality is in our crazy world. Time Magazine can suck it.
