“It is not enough for journalists to see themselves as mere messengers without understanding the hidden agendas of the message and myths that surround it.” – John Pilger
Old media was declared officially dead in 2014 as many more truth seekers surged to alternative news media sites, blogs and podcasts, no longer trusting Big Media and their whorporate presstitutes.
CNN fell below the top 20 in TV rankings with their average age viewership of 72 years old this year and the Big Three continue its long descent into irrelevancy.
Likewise, mainstream newspapers continue to raise costs, increase ads, reduce proprietary content and cut print size because fewer and fewer are willing to pay a buck, or double that on Sundays, to be propagandized, told partial truths, and being out right lied to.
Meanwhile Alt-news publishers charge little or nothing for their selfless service to humankind and the protection of our Mother Gaia while tirelessly disseminating, writing, researching and broadcasting news that you just won’t find elsewhere.
The Slaveocracy that continues to grow in this country, and globally, is no longer able to control the collective narrative. Though it cannot be viably be proven, this year Alt-Media was instrumental in beating back the war mongering hawks who were hell-bent on invading Syria as well as immediately and continually calling out the “Great Ebola Hoax”, that was quickly put to the b.s. test and proven to be a great hype for unknown reasons.
When the “alternative” media does the job of the “official” media… it’s time to stop doing the job for them.
Still pushing the same subjects albeit from a 180 degree viewpoint… when the assholes have been revealed – little more can be done just by continuing to “reveal” them.
Time to change the subject. Alternative media is doing little more now than preaching to the converted.
We need to be the new world and watch the old world disappear up its own kazoo 😉
