WESTERN MAINSTREAM 'JOURNALISM' IS DEAD!
If you don't chuckle at least 10 times during ANY news broadcast it's time to WAKE UP!
"When the bio-survival circuit flashes danger, all other mental activity ceases."
Robert Anton Wilson
Objective Journalism is a myth:
Firstly the Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle of Quantum physics states that you can't leave the observer out of the observation.
A story is filtered through an individual consciousness, which frames the piece, evaluates information, tries to gain interviews
with those subjects unwilling to give information and attempts to finish the work by deadline under difficult conditions.
"Why bother with newspapers, if this is all they offer? Agnew was right. The press is a gang of cruel faggots. Journalism is not a profession or a trade. It is a cheap catch-all for fuckoffs and misfits - a false doorway to the backside of life, a filthy piss-ridden little hole nailed off by the building inspector, but just deep enough for a wino to curl up from the sidewalk and masturbate like a chimp in a zoo-cage."
Hunter S. Thompson
The Nazis used to call propaganda by its name, now the western world shamelessly calls it journalism.
Everytime I read the news, I'm always more confused.
They're telling me to choose, but there's only lies to choose from.
"Our job is to give people not what they want, but what we decide they ought to have."
Richard Salent, Former President CBS News
