I'm at the Point of Not Believing Virtually Anything the MSM Media SaysSubmitted by Forever Liberty on Fri, 05/11/2012 - 02:43
I don't know about anyone else, but after learning about how the media terribly distorts reality (ie Ron Paul) I can no longer trust virtually anything they say or have drilled into our heads. An establishment media that twists reality enough to brainwash us into bombing countries like Iraq and Iran for no good reason really puts things into perspective.
If someone asks me what I think of ______ country my default question will be I don't know unless I have heard opinions from reputable people and sources from that country.
For example, I remember being taught how terrible Singapore was because of their caning, but after some education it's really not a bad place (probably better than the US) as long as you don't do certain things that are common sense no-nos. Venezuela: Is it really a bad place or are we being brainwashed into believing it is because of strategic reasons via drugs and oil?
