Cheerful Media Tools Of The One Party State

ART: You Are Here Too - 5th & Adams - Springfield, Illinois - 2006

Opinion: Watching the news cycle so expertly crafted is enough to make anyone retch. Main Stream Media is staffed by corporate stooges who hide any personal concerns which they may have over being used by the spin masters of the one party state. Could we expect anything more from corporate media?

Oh my god a group of "terrorist" was planning to bring down Sears Tower in Chicago!

Let's see what other issues are ignored meanwhile.

It's always the senzational stories which dominate the headlines. It seems that less, and less consideration is given to stories of merit. There are some exceptions, but consolidtation of ownership of major media outlets has worked wonders in allowing the powers that be to squelch out voices of discontent.

In a world in which more voices should be heard than ever before the major media outlets tend to focus on the same sensationalistic stories. How can a democracy continue to exist when its people are so uninformed?

I agree. However, let us not forget the fear factor. Journalist are bound to overdo any coverage that may have placed them in personal jeopardy. I would do the same. I think, they must, on a personal level, try everything to avoid involvement with these stories. Maybe they'll do a story on Jerome Prophet one day. What have you got for them?
