Project End the Current Media SystemSubmitted by DuaneK36 on Sun, 05/06/2012 - 23:01
I have come to the conclusion that the most damaging entity to this nation is the news media. Simple research shows them to lie and manipulate to the detriment of the American People. They lie us into war and are currently lying a president into position.
Ron Paul is winning states now and the news media is discrediting it. By doing so, they discredit the system of election that has been put in place. It is pure deception and not ignorance that they do not explain the process accurately to the people. The entire delegate selection process was by design intended to prevent a "mob rules" decision. The delegate process allows the more informed voters to make that decision; otherwise a situation could occur where someone in ownership of the media could wrongly convince the masses to support an utter criminal into office, whereas the informed voter who has done their own research could prevent this.
Even our caucus system is being affected by the media, hordes of media minions show up in support of the media's favorite, but still, they refuse to look at information or do any real analysis of the candidate they support. If you have any compasion, then you might actually feel sorry for the ill informed and have some empathy for them holding true to their beliefs which are based on their knowledge or lack thereof.
As far as influence on the popular vote, by the media not mentioning a certain candidate at all, it has an effect. This is a blatant effort to sway voting and has been done across the board from all media sources. Research will show that the media all seems to fall under the control on one small group in this country. It belongs to the very people who are reaping profits from the decline of our society.
We are a large group and can have an influence. Our supporters were almost all aquired by spreading our own information that the media in a very bias fashion refuses to recognize.
I say we accumulate a list of sponsors for the media. They have already lost a massive amount of viewers and dont' care, for their owners, maintaining power in our government is worth more than the millions in profit they are losing from their media sources, not to mention a Ron Paul presidency may very well spell the end of the gravy train for the owners of the media and their cohorts. It would on the otehr hand mean increased prosperity and freedoms for the people of this nation.
Lets do what we can. I have completely stopped watching the "news", for in fact it is not news at all, it is listed as entertainment and not required to hold to any standards of journalism and as can be seen, they certainly do not. I would appeal to everyone to never again tune into their channels or visit their websites, and to tell everyone you know to do the same.
I also suggest that we accumulate a the list of their sponsors and write letters/make calls in protest. And follow through by refusing to buy their products if they advertise on the major networks.
Of course I realize that keeping Paul out of office is more important to those people than losing profits, but it will have a slight impact and take away some of their power. For those who stop watching the media along with us, they will live a better life for it.
The step we can take to have a positive impact is to participate locally with our FCC and vote to remove the major networks from our local broadcasts. The media corporation that Ben Swann works for is fairly large with 47 stations nationwide, lets vote them into positions of broadcast instead.
