Does anyone else get literally ill when the MSM is on?

I would like to ask a simple question:

Does anyone else here find themselves literally unable to watch the MSM anymore, or for that matter find themselves sick to their stomachs when the talking heads are using melodramatic gestures and words to push an agenda of global, wreckless warfare?

The Boston Marathon bombing has me waiving the white flag ad nauseum...stop exploiting these tragedies with overly dramatic pictures, constant coverage reeled together like a soap-opera and stop bringing celebrities like Donald Trump, Jennifer Aniston or professionals like Dr. Oz on television simply to push the policy of constant revenge and warfare...

Quit making us feel like we don't care just because we question our inept and failed government...

I love my country and I'm tired of those in power tearing it asunder...the appeal to the emotional is becoming disgusting and transparent...STOP trying to FRIGHTEN everybody with half-truths and outright lies.

"SICK and tired" maybe ANGRY is a better word

There is something about this 'isn't the world wonderful' and the fuzzy stories about how the 'first responders' and others have rushed in to help, Oh my!, the medical staff was so prepared, the town has 'come together' over this.... airheads on TV so amazed that there is goodness in humanity when faced with adversity, they expected chaos? I'm sick and tired of 'Hero' worship.

There are some statements which I find very troubling. Over and over it has been said that we would experience an "enhanced presence" and a "significant increase" across the country of our protectors; homeland security, police, FBI, etc. as a result of this. The TV warned that we should not gather in large groups, to be careful when we go out or use a cell phone....

I also heard them say "Everyone is a suspect until proven innocent" Before Tyranny they used to say "Everyone is innocent until proven guilty" This FUBAR world has been turned upside down!

If you see something, say something, the government is listening.

YUP I do. I think maybe because it really is a drug

YUP I do. I think maybe because it really is a drug. My FoxWatchingUncle has the Cable News on 24-7. We took him with us on vacation once and he literally was JONESING for a hit of FOX. It was freaky. Down right addiction.

If you aren't addicted, it can make a person sick. My theory anyway.

Everyone Except...

Erin Burnett. I know she's just about as guilty as any other anchor, but she does tend to weigh both sides of issues and cover things I'm interested in knowing about.

The other shows on FOX/CNN/MSNBC I just watch for entertainment or to see what the latest propaganda campaign is covering.

By the way, weren't we about to go to war with North Korea a week ago? Guess they're waiting for us to solve our little investigation before they attack. #lulz

HAHAHA!! that's right!

yeah. kind of.

It makes you FIGURATIVELY sick.

Not Literally.

It makes me dizzy.

I don't actually puke or anything. I haven't had a TV in my house for almost 9 years and when I watch it now, it makes me dizzy.


literally sick.

Whenever I see it

on in a lobby or some other public place it seems more and more cartoonist each time.

Liberty = Responsibility

I've never been the same

ever since I took the Red Pill.

I believe in the freedom to be what we choose to be.

The feeling is similar..

but the perspective may be different.

Ive been around since Rudy vs. Ron. What I witnessed in the first election was astounding by any standard. Only a fool would believe the media after 2007.

Since that time I have rid my home of a television. I would rather tolerate the lies and misconceptions of my fellow Americans than swallow another spoonful of sugar the govt forced down.

Name the last time a govt agency didnt abuse, mismanage or distort their power? Name the last time the media held anyone accountable?

I no longer fell ill.. Im just aware. I woke up. I no longer have faith in the people that swindle lies.

p.s. Rick Santorum.. I hope you read this.

Water is stale, Water is stagnant

Tired of seeing the same people over 'n over, year after year.. The water is stagnant. Not good to get info from one source, just an old standard.

Not the same - female newsers play a huge part these days

(no pun intended) you know, the area between the arms, below the chin and above the waist. Gotta keep 'em gawking. Just ask my husband, except don't bother asking him when those ladies are on the air. :-)

Got me

You got me on that one, caught off guard. : - \

Done with MSM!

The best thing we did over the past year was to get rid of satellite TV. We will occasionally watch via antenna the weather, Jeopardy, or Survivor. But if I am somewhere and Obama starts to speak, it is physically jolting. His cadence, his delivery, everything about him is sickening. I haven't watched any TV coverage of the latest Boston incident and don't plan to. Really the "News" is a joke these days. It should indeed come with a health hazard warning. It's got to be more dangerous to your well-being than tobacco or cannabis!

I Don't smoke cannabis

but I know it would not be Dangerous to my health.

I, too, get physically ill just walking through the room as my husband is watching the news. Thank God, Daily Paul is the perfect antidote.

Same here!

Mine only watches in the morning for about 15 minutes or so but he is slowly catching on to their game.

I get what they call telly–vision service.

A mere image of Obama makes me want to puke. But the mainstream press gives me bird flu. …But, seriously, I do watch the news (The Disney Channel is better). I keep lots of patriotic people abreast of what is going on. Perhaps someday I’ll throw the idiot box out the window.

I can't watch Tee-Vee

I cancelled my cable in 2007 and have no antenna so we get zero tee-vee reception. I used to turn it on at the hotel when I'm travelling for business but I've quit because it makes me ill. I spend a lot of time in the car as a travelling salesman and now listen to podcasts by Lew Rockwell, Tom Woods, Russ Roberts and other what I would call "normal" people.
In 2003 someone suggested I read Atlas Shrugged. After I read the book it was all over.
After I discovered Ron Paul there was no going back.

Before Ron I was in a sort of coma or hypnotic state. I listened to FOX and used to watch all the standard "conservative" shows. These shows now make me sick.

msm bias tends to illicit a deep frown, with it a deep concentration to what im hearing, and sometimes a snarl or two......sometimes

edit: plus some commercials

Haven't watched TV in years.

If I see something from the MSM, it's a clip posted on here or something.

Resist the temptation to feed the trolls.

Haven't watched/listened in years

because, yes, indeed, I get physically ill.

Even the local news makes me want to hurl.

I don't have it, so I don't watch it--

but if I happen to be in a place where the television is on (and it seems to be on in most places) . . .

I just feel really stupid when I watch it. Is that the same thing as feeling ill?


I don't like feeling stupid, so I try not to look at it, but the voices can be annoying, too--

Just shoot the television--


Actually, we keep a machine for videos, but we can't get network tv on it; I suppose we could get it attached to cable, somehow, but that is expensive, and we aren't interested in it--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

I can't even watch that shit...

And at one time I even thought John Stewart and Bill Mahr weren't one of them...I literally throw stuff at the TV when those dipshits are on...My wife just says, "I can't even watch them anymore". Bottom line...Ignorance isn't bliss, and once you are awake...You see a dramatic level of corruption in every single facet of the modern life...I'm just sick of it...

it's hard not to be overwhelmed by the evil--

you can fight it with nature (and for those of us who believe, with God)--

garden; walk in the woods; play with babies--

those things help a lot--

it also helps to find people who have less than you do and help them out--


Hang on--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

The MSM used to get to me,

The MSM used to get to me, but not anymore. When I watch by choice now, it's out of curiosity, to ID the propaganda theme they're pushing, to know the politically correct viewpoint that those stuck in the matrix will expect me to have.

I rarely watch the MSM by choice though. Usually it's because I'm somewhere where others are watching and I don't control the remote. In these cases, unless I'm curious, I just ignore it and focus my attention elsewhere.

The MSM - it is what it is. You can't change it, and one of life's important lessons is to learn not to stress on what you cannot change.
