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.

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.

I can't ven 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 because you are at a "higher" level of perception

it's a bittersweet side effect of being awake. You can feel the BS throughout your whole body when contradictory information, targeted at "lower" states of awareness, comes into your experience.

"We are not human beings having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having a human experience"—Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

that's an interesting way to say it and . . .

quite accurate. The senses become alert; I like to think that it is our eternal spirits that are aware--

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

You like to think it?

You know. It's stepping into that same awareness from this "physical" point of view that allows for such increased clarity in perception.

Q: Does anyone else get ill when they eat shit?

A: Uh, no, because I don't eat shit. :)

I certainly do...

They're all a bunch of sellouts and sayanim. Nothing is put on television unless it is 100% kosher.

The only thing worse than MSM

Is the MSM defenders who constantly bash alternative media as being extremists or conspiracy nuts.

I'm around an on-TV when I visit people

sometimes. My main thought is amazement at how boring it all is when you're outside the fear-mongering. So much is left vs. right stuff and if you're one or the other, it seems so important who's "winning".

My dad was asking me if I'd seen this guy Dr. Ben Carson. He was just so into this topic, but all I saw was the latest Establishment attempt to test out a mouthpiece. What the mouthpiece is named is the only new piece of information and that's soooo boring.


And I spend so little time a day perusing the news, keeping up on what the main-streamers might think is important because the TV says so. I can spend hours around those on-TV's and not hear anything new because I got it all in a much more condensed form. So much repetition and commercials and dramatic pauses. I'm not saying I'm not wasting my time by keeping up on mainstream topics, but that time can be wasted so much more efficiently.

I've said before that I work as a private duty home care aide

I love my job, I love my clients, but as the evening wears on and I know that Brian Williams and "Nightly News" is coming on I start to get what may be a panic attack. I start searching around for an excuse to get out of the room! I'll go make a pot of soup or run to the store.. I'll say the basement needs sweeping or the floors need scrubbing anything ANYTHING to get as far away from the T.V. as I can get!!! Today I was UNABLE to escape seeing Obama give his "Heartfelt" speech at the prayer fest(?) in Boston. I literally wanted to run for my car and my tongue was bloody from biting it to keep from spewing profanities! I know what you are talking about!


yes..literally ill

Can't explain it either. Like the feeling you get walking through a fun house at the carnival or the house of mirrors. There is just something so unsettling about it.

Can't watch, don't watch it.

Can't watch, don't watch it. Sometimes I have the urge to turn to it then realize it is complete propaganda bullshit and don't.

thank you for the comments...

I actually watch very little TV: King of Queens...that's it...

but it is on as my wife watches it sometimes...I found myself saying outloud, "this is disgusting"...in reference to the media coverage of the Boston bombing...the exploitation of emotion is horrific.

Do you want the cure to this problem?

Turn off the television. Get your news online read the articles then move to the next. It will stop making you feel sick about all the bs you watch and release you from the revenue tv generating herd.

Don't worry...

DP is number one source...I've mentioned the Daily Paul in my letters-to-the-editors in the past...spread the word.

If it is ever on

I am usually yelling back at the TV. Even the local news ha ha!

My wife must think I'm crazy but she see's through their trash too.

You must all start listening to the No Agenda Show. http://www.noagendashow.com/

It's one of the funniest podcasts out there - where they play ridiculous clips from the MSM and break them down to show how absurd they are.

They hosts are very pro Ron Paul, and talk about many issues we all support.

It's the Best Podcast In The Universe! no joke.

Free yourself from TV bondage

I cannot tell you how important it is to turn off your TV and cut the cord to the cable company. TV is a drug. Stop being a junkie. The CIA writes the scripts for movies and TV to corrupt your culture. TV news is Big Brother propaganda. Our Founding Fathers pledged to give up their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor in defense of liberty, and you can't give up your TV? Tell the cable company to go to hell and stop paying the bill. If significant numbers of so-called patriots and so-called libertarians did that, the establishment will be forced to respond. Make them panic instead of being played as their fool.

I never watch

or listen and never turn the TV on.

I never watch

If I'm at a restaurant or bar and it's on I ask them to change the channel. If they don't, I'll leave.

I would actually get ill

I did not like I was, yelling back at how stupid they are, or what liars.. I was never into MSM.. and if I was put in a room with a couch, TV, junk food, I would think I was in hell.. but I'm sure it's true comfort for many.

Not me. I don't have a TV and

Not me. I don't have a TV and got rid of my cable over a year ago... why are you still watching it?

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...
