free press no more?

Is this the end of the press as we know it or are we about to see what has happened in places where there is no more freedom of speech. These are the places where crime just happens and no one ever does anything to stop it. These are the towns where no one is free to have a news stand any more…

No place to be free…

No more Churches…

No more Parks for kids to play…

The most difficult thing is that we all know where this leads when you can no longer speak the truth because you are afraid that someone will come along and take your life then the very thing you think is important today will loose its splendor in the cold light of dawn.

A Fox News correspondent was accused in a Justice Department affidavit of being a possible criminal “co-conspirator” for his alleged role in publishing sensitive security information — in a leak case that takes the highly unusual step of claiming a journalist broke the law.

The case has also caught the attention of Congress. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., said in a statement Monday he was “very concerned” about the reports of “possible criminal prosecution for doing what appears to be normal news-gathering protected by the First Amendment.”

Bias news coverage?

The media has been screaming really over the last few days about how unfair, it all it, that the people of the United states do not want the same hope and change that the media wants, that is puzzling really because you have to wonder what is going through their minds.

The media used to be a noble profession, one of the first to begin publishing in this nation,

was a patriot and a printer by profession.

Things have changed, and over time, we now have something that is not what it once was, in fact we have what many consider to be a third party, a third wheel, that is very much in the spot light they pretend to be reporters, but they all have an agenda.

To combat this lazy reporting and illogical practices Fox news became famous for its fair and balanced news coverage, however that may not be as compelling as it once was Fox news became rich over this style of coverage however they have slowly begun to move in the wrong direction on how it covers politics, with so many liberal voices some say that was the real reason that allegedly Glenn Beck left fox news because it has hired so many liberal bobble heads that it was no longer the network of the fair and balanced.

Who knows for sure if it is true or not, but one thing is clear Fox news is no longer what it was back in 2000.

What seems to be slowly taking place is a tendency to frame the news in a certain light, which some other networks have tried to do and failed, allegedly NBC is one of those news companies that have failed to provide real and substantial coverage.

The thing is and this is important, if we cannot trust the media to cover the news, then are we not doomed to repeat our mistakes because if we no longer have a free press then what do we have?

If the press is no longer covering and uncovering the news because they are all about pushing an agenda over the facts then how can we as a people move forward? 

How can we challenge our selves to produce a better way of life for our children?

The answer is we cannot, and that is sad, which is why more and more Americans and world wide millions of people are getting their news from the Internet, because you will not read a news story like this on CNN or NBC or CBS, because they do not cover the news anymore, (allegedly) you will see a twisted version of what they think the news should be again ( allegedly)

So the question remains, and this is important, when a nation has no freedom to speak and no freedom to say what should be said, then that nation is no longer free.

Media Lies Media evil?

[kc_heading_pac_9_headline_4 size=”40″ color=”#5dac25″ ]Are they sick and twisted..[/kc_heading_pac_9_headline_4]

 

Can anyone, beat both the media and a political opponent and is that fair?

Can we expect to have fair elections and more importantly can we expect to find methods that make sense in this brave new world
where the media have apparently gone to supporting only one party and not reporting the news when it comes to one side of the news,
one question that seems even more valid is “Can you really call it news any more?”

 

Can you trust the media to tell you the truth?

And is it OK if they lie to you if its for your own good?

Should the media tell the truth or lie so that you can feel better?

There are some serious questions about what is being presented as fact in today’s media and that is something that should concern everyone, when a free society no longer has a free press and that press now is either controlled by large corporation that might perhaps allegedly even be manipulating by using news stories to cause panic in the stock market, should that be allowed to continue?

Example number one.
Last night on a local Fox news channel, a news story was run that claimed that prescription medications were resulting in more deaths than illegal drugs, including heroin, and other very serious drugs, they claimed that without any supporting facts, nor any other evidence that what they were saying was true, they cited no clear compelling evidence that would suggest that this was even true.
Now, the result is that some people will actually believe this trash, and it is false, because street drugs still account for the larger over dose deaths by an alarming percentage, so what are we to learn from this type of news story?
That you can buy street drugs and your safer than going to a doctor?
Of course not, that would be stupid right, I mean really stupid, who would do such a thing anyway? Hopefully no one would but the point seems clear, The war on drugs has now shifted to the war on the people, and this is what they plan on doing with the help of the media?
Sounds crazy, but if that is not the plan then what are they doing telling lies on the air?
Everyone knows that using street drugs is far more dangerous than going to a doctor to get legal care, yet the fox news story, seemed to tell a different story.
A story that is incredible, a story suggesting that there are thousands and thousands of people dying from taking prescription medications, every second of every day?  Really, and what statistical model are you using to get that information?  Do you use the mortality tables?  How about the Coroner reports and statistics?  or did you only check one county in one large city?
What makes more sense, that the news can be manipulated for an agenda or that so many people are dying at the hands of doctors than say your average street thug?
