‘None of us, legal, illegal, or native can trust the mainstream media.’ Pete724

I’ve worked in mainstream media for a couple of decades. Believe me there is a serious lack of intelligence, knowledge, research, fact-finding, on and on, except for a low percentage of the ‘talking heads’ we see on the screen. Most are just ‘teleprompter readers’. Damn! I’ve corrected simple geography mistakes and spelling by the writers. I’m not a writer! Meanwhile, some of us just ‘consume’ what the spew as truth. Remember, the main thrust of the news is selling advertising space. It’s a captive audience. A huge money-maker! The biggest, actually. The government mandates airing news on broadcasts. i.e.; ‘The Communications Act of 1934’. Social media? Way deeper into the quagmire of human self-indulgence and ignorance. I could go on, but…

Geez! Felt like I was starting an end of semester thesis back in my college days … the familiar cold sweat!
