Isn't it time for us to isolate our media?Submitted by Liberty_Forever on Wed, 05/07/2014 - 13:21
So a lot of people talk about how our country needs to go back to being an isolated country, and usually they refer to war and military conflict . But how many people how thought about isolating our news? I just find it shameful that we, as a country, can focus so much on gay rights protests in Russia when there are still similar issues here in over half of the states. Why is it that our media focuses so much on issues in Syria or the Russia-Ukraine mess when we still have troops overseas and people starving on our own streets?
I guess I just keep forgetting that the mass public, along with the most popular media outlets, think that our countries biggest issue is the latest attempt to repeal and replace the ACA. It just pisses me off that our two-party system would rather spend so much time bashing each other in public, then secretly putting the country in ruin, rather than focus on what matters most: The American people. Our media needs to stop using another country's issues in order to force us, the "perfect Big Stick superpower" to get involved in something that has never involved us.
So am I alone in thinking that OUR media should focus on US rather than someone else?
