The daily roundup of news is at times overwhelming. But at the same time we still don’t hear the news we need to know, or want to hear.
If you are looking for that story you know is out there but can’t find, it is probably no surprise why. If you are looking for the true story on something, well, it can be almost impossible to find. Maybe you have to take snippets from 3 different pieces to cobble together the best iteration of the truth. But it is doubtful you will find it from the main talking heads on the 24/7.
Why do I say that and why does that matter? Simply because we have to think, like we always did, using critical thinking. That was always the case for us — not everyone else.
You’ve seen it before where the things media cares about are not the things the people care about. Media admits that it reports what it wants people to care about. Then they will hide behind the excuse that “this is what people want or care about.” They feed us a daily diet of what they want us to see and care about. I’ve even been told basically that by a TV reporter many years ago. It is the ultimate arrogance. They’ll even tell you to your face when they think a story is not worthy of their coverage, though probably not why.
The paraphrase of this distortion is: ‘if it is on the news, we are the reason because we demand it.’ Take the Stormy Daniels (whatever her real name is) story, we are all so curious and just
want, no need, to know. If they put it on we want it.
It is also our fault, or Trump’s, when news errors.
Sure we know they are biased but I do wonder how many people know how intentional it really is? I think it has finally become clear; we got a lesson in that over the last couple years. It is about as intentional as the FBI/DOJ investigation of Trump. They, intelligence, were like Rod Blagojevich saying “I got this golden thing”. That statement alone probably did Rod the most harm. But that’s how intelligentsia played us.(or tried to) This golden thing to them begets the golden-shower story. A hodge-podge of a fictional narrative.
Served up daily, the Sludge Of Our Times is not what is on our menu but what we get. The stories we want covered are albeit ignored. Substituted with the stuff from the bottom of the swamp. And we are supposed to say, “sir, can we have more, please?
If people want to know, the MSM’s job is to make you really work to find out.
