    Facts That The Mainstream Media Doesn’t Really Want To Talk About Right Now


    For decades, the mainstream 
    media in the United States was 
    accustomed to being able to tell 
    the American people what to 
    think.  Unfortunately for them, a whole lot of Americans are 
    starting to break free from that paradigm and think for themselves.  
    A Gallup survey from earlier this year found that 60 percent of all 
    Americans “have little or no trust” in the mainstream media.  More 
    people than ever are realizing that the mainstream media is giving 
    them a very distorted version of “the truth” and they are 
    increasingly seeking out alternative sources of information.

    In the United States today, just six giant media corporations control 
    the mainstream media.  Those giant media corporations own 
    television networks, cable channels, movie studios, radio stations, 
    newspapers, magazines, publishing houses, music labels and even 
    many prominent websites.
    But now thanks to the Internet the mainstream media no longer has 
    a complete monopoly on the news.  In recent years the “alternative 
    media” has exploded in popularity.  People want to hear about the 
    things that the mainstream media doesn’t really want to talk about.  
    They want to hear news that is not filtered by corporate bosses and 
    government censors.  They want “the truth” and they know that 
    they are not getting it from the mainstream media.
    We are watching a media revolution happen, and many in the 
    mainstream media are totally freaking out about it.  In fact, some in 
    the mainstream media have even begun publishing articles that 
    mock the American people for not trusting them.  For example, a 
    recent CNN article entitled “Still ‘paranoid’ after all these years” 
    portrayed Americans that don’t trust the media as paranoid 
    conspiracy theorists that have left rationality behind…
    Ever have the feeling you’re being lied to by the newsmedia, the authorities, the corporate world? That somebody — or something — is out to get you?You’re not alone.
    Welcome to 21st-century America.
    Look around. Trust is hitting historic lows. Just a third ofAmericans have a favorable viewof the federal government, a decline of 31% since 2002, according to the Pew Center for People and the Press. Gallup has Congress’ approval rating is in the low 20s, after nearing single digits last summer. And the news media aren’t much better off.“Negative opinions about the performance of news organizations now equal or surpass all-time highs on nine of 12 core measures the Pew Research Center has been tracking since 1985,” a Pew report said.
    The article goes on to make it sound like it is very irrational not to 
    trust the media, but in this day and age it is imperative that we all 
    learn to think for ourselves.  Blindly trusting someone else to do 
    your thinking for you is very dangerous.
    Anyone that does not acknowledge that the mainstream media has 
    an agenda is not being honest with themselves.  The mainstream 
    media presents a view of the world that is very favorable to their 
    big corporate owners and the big corporations that spend billions of 
    dollars to advertise on their networks.  The mainstream media is the 
    mouthpiece of the establishment, and the worldview being pushed 
    on the big networks is going to be consistent with the economic, 
    financial, political and social goals of the establishment.  The 
    mainstream media loves to talk about things that fit with that 
    agenda, and they don’t like to talk about things that suggest that 
    there is something wrong with that agenda.
