marketing by so called "journalists" :(

I wish they would have made a segment of the coverage of RP last election with the tag line: "Ron Paul, who will never win the nomination" I couldn't believe how people parroted this to me - it was so maddening :(

This is where infowars gives

This is where infowars gives more slanted disinfo.

If you look at the clips many are from the same news stations channel.

secondly if these are also other state news stations that may be owned by the same company.

There is no proof that this was done on several different networks not owned by the same company. I would like to see solid proof, most of what comes from AJ is slanted or outright fabricated.

Sorry, Neverquit...

If you look at the clips, they are from FOX, NBC, ABC and CBS affiliates from all over Amerika (just press pause and look at the little logo in the bottom corners and the weather bar). THERE is the proof that these are NOT owned by the same company. They are, however, controlled by the same entity.
As taught in school, do you recall the 3 branches of government?
1. Executive
2. Judicial
3. Legislative

There is, however a FOURTH branch of government: Propaganda
You can find it anytime you turn on the TV, radio or computer. It doesn't matter who owns it or operates it...the content only serves one master.

"The liberties of a people never were, nor ever will be, secure, when the transactions of their rulers may be concealed from them." - Patrick Henry

While still centralized, it's broader than that.

Local stations (and local newspapers) get their national and international news from wire services. Also, corporations blanket the media with press releases (such as a press release announcing a new app). News conferences are another way that information is disseminated to the nation: "News conferences are often held by politicians (such as the President of the United States); by sports teams; by celebrities or film studios; by commercial organizations to promote products; by attorneys to promote lawsuits; and by almost anyone who finds benefit in the free publicity afforded by media coverage. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/News_conference

I don't disagree that gov't propaganda is out there. But it's more than that. Nonetheless, I imagine if for some reason the gov't didn't want there to be awareness of a particular event, or conversely *did* want everyone to know of something, it probably wouldn't be too hard to convince a tv network or newspaper to drop it, or promote it, respectively.

LoL...

You think Alex jones made this. Too funny...

It is one of the essential features of such incompetence that the person so afflicted is incapable of knowing that he is incompetent. To have such knowledge would already be to remedy a good portion of the offense.

Did you miss the plugs?

I suppose you missed the plugs for AJ media throughout this video, for infowars and prisonplanet, ironically accomplishing the very thing being spoken out against. Yep, there is a "war going on for our minds", as 2xtream quotes Alex Jones. The video even claims to be made for an infowars.com contest. Would it not make sense that it should follow suit with the tone of his material?

Of course the news "is scripted" - what do you think the teleprompter is for? What exactly is written on those sheets of paper newscasters can commonly be seen shuffling at their desk? What is really being "exposed" here is how these newscasts are all controlled by a single source which is capable of disseminating information far more pertinent - or detrimental - than ice cream aps and cluttered spam relief. And of course we already knew about this, that the money-trail is as linear as an urgent trip to the bathroom; but to someone who does not know, seeing it exposed in such a manner carries merit to the sites that are being plugged - where every type of "doomsday" is being spun and fear is paraded like the standard modus of the age. It does not have to be.

Are you serious?

"I suppose you missed the plugs for AJ media throughout this video,... ...Would it not make sense that it should follow suit with the tone of his material?"

So let me get this straight. What youre saying here is that... let's say a video was made... and... it advocates rape, murder, theft, etc, and it had "plugs" throughout saying it was for a contest on the Daily Paul, that somehow shows the "tone" of the material one would find on the site simply by viewing the video. WOW!

It is one of the essential features of such incompetence that the person so afflicted is incapable of knowing that he is incompetent. To have such knowledge would already be to remedy a good portion of the offense.

Wait a minute - are YOU serious?

"let's say a video was made... and... it advocates rape, murder, theft, etc, and it had "plugs" throughout saying it was for a contest on the Daily Paul - "

I saw that same tactic used against the "too kooky for president" Dr. Paul during the 2012 elections! It's called pragmatics.

This was made for a contest that prison planet conducted.

therefore the plugs for AJ

Local tv stations, just like local newspapers,

use the same newswire services and receive the same corporate press releases (e.g., announcing new apps). Here's a defense, "slightly," by the Tampa Bay Times after Conan's "ice cream" mash. http://www.tampabay.com/blogs/media/content/defending-local-...

While you can't expect a local station to have reporters all over, still; you'd think a bunch of communications majors could just slightly make a story their own. But, really, I don't see it as much different than many millions of people across America all laughing on key along with the canned laughter of the same tv sit com - or late night tv joke like the ice cream mash! - or cheering (or cursing), en masse, at the same touchdown.

Think economy and that its not doing so well, after all, it is taking that spring out of that easter bunnies step

Its true, campaigns can be a little salty, hell, they can be downright corrupt sometimes, funny how they leave the same taste at the end though

And could this be the end of email overload, or is it email overlord, as that nice young lady at the end there put it, boy, i dont mind saying, i almost jumped for joy when i thought they'd finally get that sucker, bit disapointed really(clarification- fictional character reference) duh! :)

The doctor who counted himself a proud Camel smoker, checked the list as a Radiologist! I'm not kidding! At 3:28, for just two seconds, if that.

This is what happens with 'Drive by reporting'. You dont need to do any real journalism just buy what you need from the AP and nobody is the wiser...

We all share this eternally evolving present moment- The past and future only exist as inconsequential mental fabrications.

It actually proves Rush is correct. lol I dont say that too often.
