I have always been a news hound as far back as I can remember. Originally, the only news I could receive was from the local news paper and three TV stations: ABC, NBC & CBS. The newspaper was limited to covering local, small-town events and then they would defer everything else to the New York Times or other big ‘well respected’ news authorities. The TV stations stood out to me remarkably because they covered the same news items every day the same way. Even as a child, I thought how odd that ABC, NBC & CBS would all come to the same conclusions the same way. I knew something was up. I knew there was someone, somewhere behind the scenes controlling what was considered important news and what was not; and I also knew that if you can pick and choose your facts: what to emphasize what to de-emphasize and what to leave out, you can tell whatever story that needs to be told. Later we had PBS which had NOVA and Jacob Jacob Bronowski’s series ‘The Ascent of Man’, which I loved; but even my new hope for good information was spoiled by PBS & NPR when they consistently shaped the news to their liking. Still later we had CNN, CSPAN-1 & CSPAN-2 but I never felt I was getting the whole truth. Then Fox News arrived and widened the news perspective just a bit but still stayed close to center gravity created by all the weight of other news spigots.
Later, Fox News got in trouble with cell phone hacking in the UK and jail time was threatened against the owner of Fox News. So as the threats increased, Fox News seemed to react by changing their perspective to be more in line with the establishment and even canceled a very successful and probative program, replacing it with reruns of unsuccessful programs. I smelled a rat. So, I turned off my TV and haven’t watched it since.
Other bright spots in the news delivery service is the great expanse of news available online. The Drudge Report is a good news aggregator and Matt Drudge has a sublime talent for telling a story and creating news using only his headlines he places in the links to the news stories he aggregates on his site.
There are many other excellent new aggregators like:
Full Spectrum Dominance and Global Research
Since I don’t watch TV anymore, I have much more time to read and read I have. Major books and videos that have opened my eyes wide enough to see who the men are that control our news and thus our collective sense of reality are:
- Classified Woman-The Sibel Edmonds Story: A Memoir by Sibel Edmonds
- None Dare Call it Conspiracy by Gary Allen
- Richard Nixon: The Man Behind the Mask by Gary Allen
- Kissinger: The Secret Side of the Secretary of State by Gary Allen
- The Rockefeller File by Gary Allen
