Deeper Look – Episode 91 (2017)

In this video I allow myself to speculate and make assumptions in ways you don’t normally see. The manipulation of social media and public perception is a point of significant frustration for us here, and so this is just my opinion on one situation.

    Journalism has devolved into something wholly unlike its constitutional protections intended.

    That is soooo true.
    As I’m somewhat fossilized, I recall Edward G Murrow and unbiased reporting.

    The man is probably writhing in his grave, with today’s sad state of the press.

    Were todays “news” practices attempted in 1968, the public would have been outraged and our FCC would have made short work of them.

    That was the deal we made.
    They get to use the airwaves but must provide the civic service of informing us of what’s going on, in an unbiased manner with fair rebuttal time as a requirement.

    The Costner movie, “Good Night and Good Luck” is one I highly recommend to anyone unfamiliar with the role true journalism played in American culture and daily life.

    Integrity! Honesty! Fairness! Accountability!

    These are now extinct. Folks don’t realize what they’ve lost. Just like the value of our labor. Gone.

    I rejected TV news and newspapers in 2004 and haven’t looked back. They are good for breaking events but only as they unfold, before the spin. Otherwise, it’s like Mark Walberg said in the beginning of Shooter.

    “Let’s see what lies they’re feeding us today.” If held in that context? It’s enlightening.

    Finding the news today, requires waaaay more work.

    Hey thanks for all of yours Ben!

    Well this has nothing to do with what they report, just how they manipulate the viewers through the net.

    This is an eye opener. I think you summed it up perfectly.

    Believe nothing. That’s my motto. Been working pretty good so far 👍
