    I understand. When one's own ignorance blocks the thinking process, make something up. In the meantime, if ye be a seeker of wisdom and truth, you might read the Morley Safer article. Don't adjust your blinders, they're really working for you.

    I only wish there were more people who held them to a higher standard. The "news" we get is bs

    The only way is to shut them off. That hurts their money stream and requires they must inquire "why?' and rectify the problem. I haven't watched TV, with the exception of VHS and DVD movies since 1989. Information, news, gossip, nonsense, and entertainment is all available on the Internet. When an Intelligence invades the Internet, it becomes obvious quickly.

    Yes, if it is on the Internet it must be true and nothing is more informative than VHS video tape.

    No, Angelina Jolie defeated the Illuminati in Tomb Raiders. You must have missed that report.

    I'm going to guess you don't have much money.

    Why don't you start a television network? Then it would be run by little money.

    Wait, hmmm, if you could start a television network that means you have a lot of money, so then you would be corrupt. So I gather you want government run television instead, like in Saudi Arabia and North Korea. Then, finally, we'd get the truth - right?

    If you get a steady dose of lies, you tend to believe it all after a while, like yourself. Outright lies, lies by omission, lies by framing, distortions, partisanship, CIA media, and bought and sold as commercial content have destroyed the USA Media. It's the "Joke of the World." I'm sure it suits you just fine and doesn't pop your bubble. Have some.

    I'm surprised that the revelation about NSA spying on everyone hasn't generated more outrage, or calls for resignations and reforms, and general political mayhem.




    I guess America as a whole no longer cares about its privacy.

    It's about money but probably the last 20 years, it's just as much about ideology and it's grown that way since cable news came on the scene.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    It's so sad and you're right, they don't care.
