For the last four years the Russiagate coup has dogged Trump, as Obama, Clinton, Brennan, Clapper, Comey, Mueller and a myriad of lesser co-conspirators have propagated the Big Lie to cover-up their traitorous actions of trying to overthrow Trump.
An honest truth-seeking press with unbiased journalists would have uncovered this conspiracy and revealed the truthful facts to a concerned public. Instead, a completely captured corporate media has turned a blind eye to the truth as they have acted as accomplices of the coup culprits. Just as evil is the suppression of truth through censorship and keeping silent regarding the truth.
Is this true? Is the mainstream media really telling us lies that we all swallow?
The way I see it, that’s how things used to be, when the only sources of news were three or four TV channels and about as many radio channels.
But these days I don’t watch any TV, or listen to any radio. I get all my information from the internet, on which there are thousands of news sources. It’s a cacophony. I wonder who to believe, or whether to believe anyone. It’s a fog. There’s no certainty. It’s a very different world.
I think we’re living through the death of the mainstream media, and the death of authoritative expertise. You can maybe make people think one way if you have just one radio station broadcasting to them. But when you have a thousand of them, all saying different things, you’re guaranteed confusion, everyone thinking differently. It’s become impossible to shape public opinion.
The 20th century was the era of mainstream media. That was the time of just one radio station. It was the only show in town.
But those days are long over. Now we’ve effectively got thousands of radio stations. Nothing is certain any more. But was it ever certain?
So is it a surprise if some people believe one thing, and other people believe the opposite, with any number of shades of opinion in between?
The attempt now is to block or ban undesirable news sources, or restrict access to them. How long is that likely to work? There are now too many news sources to tell one Big Lie.
