Is The News Scripted?

Yeah, I know, that's like asking if fire is hot.

Well for those who've never been burned, here's proof that the news burns us all the time. This video is a great wake up tool for those who still incomprehensibly believe in the MSM.

This video will fix em in just 1.5 minutes.

Wow

Thx for posting

Budget Cuts

The old media have always been retail with very thin margins. Publishing a daily newspaper is far less profitable than publishing a best-seller novel because they have to start from scratch every day.

Journalists are pressured to do more with less. Those who are real investigative types move on. Those who can live with the constraints either give up trying or do what they can.

Naturally, this left an opening for people who can write press releases that do the legwork of finding the "experts" and giving the "quotes."

How many of us wrote press releases for Ron Paul, last campaign? How many of us are doing that for the freedom movement? Advocates for Self Government, Reason, the LP, and a few others are doing it. Sometimes they get picked up.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

Isn't it just amazing how they that were shown are all scripted

the same way in what they read, is it because of there employer's Big Corporations,Big Government & the FCC !

Yes.

Yes.

As far as I am concerned, the

As far as I am concerned, the media is basically the forth branch of a corrupted government. The media cartel does not work for the public interest---they work for their monolithic parent companies. Profits are their only motivator. Why report on the adverse effects of pharmaceuticals and risk advertising revenue? Why report on all the wars and our foreign policy when these parent companies profit from governmental defense contracts? They won't and they don't.

Corruption. Hidden in plain sight with Congressional approval.

The FCC is a government sanctioned cartel of major broadcasters with monopoly control of content created in 1934.

The Commission is a private agency of the United States government.

Progressives loathe cartels and monopolies except for those created by Congress. If there is a Commission or Committee, it is a government approved and protected trust or cartel. Potential competitors are regulated out of existence.

Hypocrisy runs deep in progressive political thought.

The goal of the FCC is to keep us in the dark and feed us cow sh.t.

Most Americans

Cannot name ONE journalist or investigative reporter. Those positions are fake representations of actual journalism positions that have been slowly phased out.

The Ministry of Truth is hard at work

Look at H.R. 4310 section 1280 - Re authorization of the US Advisory Committee on Public Diplomacy.

Yes - this is the NDAA 2013!

Yes - this is not a joke!

Yes - this Committee is authorized to disseminate "public policy information in foreign countries and domestically."

In other words, there is a group of people writing propaganda!

The Group is AP

AP dispatches news to the release sources. Then the editors at the stations (TV, radio, Newspapers) revise the info into their words to get ready for the teleprompterpeople.

Help Wanted: Local News seeks anchor.

Requirements: Read script in a believable way.

Careers in Television, National Association of Broadcasters Positions available immediately. No background preferred. Please do not wear green to the interview.

Programming Director
The programming director or programming manager makes certain programming information is fed to traffic, sales and other pertinent departments. Any changes are communicated both in house and externally to the TV listings services and local newspapers. Maintaining programming equilibrium versus negotiating for new product is part of the daily responsibilities. Stations in larger markets, especially those that are part of a large media conglomerate, have downgraded or eliminated this position because many programming decisions are now made at the corporate level, on behalf of multiple stations.
--------------------------------------------------------

Public Service Director or Community Relations Manager
The station’s community public service director or community relations manager involves the local community through sponsorships, charity events or other visible causes. Public service directors/community relations managers receive countless public service announcements (PSA) submitted by groups hoping to get their non-commercial messages on the air and their causes promoted “for free.” A number of these mangers write, produce and even edit local public affairs programs. They may even be on-air.

Nice video.

The common phrasing with all news anchors happens with almost every event. Same content and framed in the same way. I wish more people realized that the people that work for the MSM are all ACTORS who are paid to read from a script. O'Reilly, Hannity, Maddow, all of them are actors. "Professional political analyst" is just a fancy word for monkey reading teleprompter for a big bag of cash.

Quit your carping! Our news is 99% pure...

Carp Takes Down Reporter! 2 minute newsreel. Local fishing report. Fish are biting.

99% pure. If you cannot stomach it, works good for fertilizer.

The sentence, "This video is

The sentence, "This video is a great wake up tool for those who still incomprehensively believe in the MSM" does not align with the meaning of the rest of the posting. Perhaps it was intended to say, "...who still comprehensively believe in the MSM", or "... who still incomprehensibly believe in the MSM"

I work at a TV station

and I work with the producers who write the shows.. mostly they're just trying to get through the day and make it as interesting as they know how

Yes it is.

I did some I.T. consulting at a local station several years ago. All the new gets delivered by a central service.

Maybe Ben Swan could shed some light on this subject.

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

Dumb-de-dumb-dumb

"You don't need us to tell you that MSM dumbs down the news."
"You don't need us to tell you that the sky is blue."
If only the talking-head stooges would try to explain *WHY* gas prices are on the rise.
But that would require initiative, research and stating more than the obvious.
Instead, Moe, Curly and Larry attempt to entertain us, because they refuse to inform and educate us.

Yeah Or Like This

Great example

I'll bet they don't show that ~whoopsie~ on TV Bloopers and Blunders shows.

Suffering Succotash!!

Wonder why people turn off the TV new?...I don't watch the boob tube, unless people like AJ, Rand or Ron Paul are being interviewed..

That's It!!

Who, once said, "All the news 'fit to print'" Was it the New York Times?

Our news media has been under complete control by the banking elite since about 1911...looooooong time ago..

I believe JP Morgan and his buddies bought up the 20 best newspaper companies in the U.S.

Now yo know why THEY want to eliminate/tax the internet...

It's all about CONTROL..

Thank you Conehead!
