Big Media Bias Thread

Originally titled: OM/Big Media Temper Tantrum Thread

Please post in this thread examples and material as well as your comments related to large information sources abusing their very important position to the detriment of the greater good.

Much of what gets posted on the DP contributes to the perception that the Old Media, which is to say the PTB controlled media, is the center of the Universe and a key to our salvation.

The OM, fortunately for our movement, is rapidly losing its grip on being the center of the universe. Let us not help it to remain relevant.

Please place all OM bursts of temper and attempts to control thought here, or at least in one place, to properly demonstrate our contempt for their trash and to hasten their demise.

The very concept of the OM is in opposition to the concept of our movement-OM is centralized information control, we are about de-centralization of control.

The OM is not an important key to our salvation, key to the success of our movement. The OM is and always will be against us.

Weakening the OM is key to the success of our movement. Think about that. If there was no OM, no centrally controlled and dominant source of information that limits discourse to a very narrow and self-serving point of view, wouldn't the people we are trying to reach be more likely to at least hear our views with a more open mind?

I have no doubt that the weaker the OM gets the stronger our movement will become, the fairer hearing our ideas will receive. Please give some thought to things we can do to weaken the OM and how we can get our fellow citizens to have absolutely no trust in their truth twisting and narrow interest serving product.

Dowdy Kitchen Man-Thanks for perking up my boring thread

Brit4RonPaul. Excellent but now I feel like Dowdy Kitchen Man.

For me, they are extremely transparent. I have been trying to fight this particular battle here for 2y 30 w/ success equal to that of the LP.

"No one mocks Big Mind Control like themselves".

Yes, its ironic that Charlie Booker's piece aired on the BBC.

They don't take their own schtik seriously, so why should we?

I no longer watch TV so I had

I no longer watch TV so I had no idea these kind of hysterics and attempts at manipulating the public were happening. I was speechless after watching this video. When I forwarded it a liberal friend, she was disgusted that the video was questioning whether or not Olbermann was a racist, thus proving that the MSM has been successful in their tactics.

Truth is Key to Liberty,

that is why they go to great lengths to suppress it.
Exposing the total manipulation of information is vital to cracking the Matrix.

good point. The old

good point. The old establishment media(NYT, WaPo, NPR) has virtually zero influence on the Republican Party.

Thanks for the comment BB

While I mostly agree w/ your comment I would say that those sources do greatly influence the total marketplace of ideas and therefore influence discourse that influences the R side of the duopoly.

More Importantly: When I use the terms Old Media, Big Media, Big Megaphones, etc. I am referring to All media that has reach and voice greatly out of scale to the number of people that have a controlling interest-that imbalance is primarily due to funding and connections.
That definition of OM includes TV, Radio and New Media sources that are controlled by OM groups. Actually, it includes "think tank" institutions like Foundation for Defense Democracies but I do not want to muddy the waters with such entities at this time.

The fact that a very small number of individuals speak with a voice far larger than their number in the marketplace of ideas is significant generally and particularly for our movement. This must be recognized and understood.

The bottom line point here is the sum total of an individuals world view can only derive from the sum total of the information they have to form that world view. Put more simply-you can only form your opinions based on the information/knowledge you possess and the lack of critical information ensures flawed conclusions. People must be aware that narrow interests have sought to control what information is available and what is not for a very long time because the above fact has been recognized for a very long time.

I believe that comment is attributable to Hitler but no matter who said it the truth and importance is unchanged.
