Bob on the Media Bookmark

Lets face it friends. The "media' is owned by corporations. Those corporations have their own agenda's, whether it be to sell you products, or sway your opinion about certain topics. Now, lets be real. Even the most honest of "reporters" is tilted a bit by his own prejudices. No man
Lets face it friends. The "media' is owned by corporations. Those corporations have their own agenda's, whether it be to sell you products, or sway your opinion about certain topics. Now, lets be real. Even the most honest of "reporters" is tilted a bit by his own prejudices. No man alive is "perpendicular". Now add the Corporate spin, and you have to question every single thing you hear. If the multi billionaires that own a broadcast company, have a political favorite, you're going to hear good things about that politician. If they are "for" a societal movement, you'll hear great things about that movement. There is no unbiased news, there is ALWAYS something behind it.

I am never at a loss of shock, when I watch even my local news. It's incredibly easy to see the manipulation, as they inject their smiles into news reports they want you to love, and inject their frowns and even chuckles into items that they want to discredit. yet that's simply on the local level. At the National level, the BS is so repugnant as to be unwatchable. You are only going to hear and see what the Corporate chiefs of staff WANT you to see and hear. CNBC of financial fame is the single biggest abuser of this fact that I can think of. When good people with a good grip on what was happening to the economy were guests, they'd be ridiculed, laughed at, mocked, and cut short when they told of the coming collapse, failed banks, etc. Instead the "perma bulls" would be given all the time they needed to laugh at them and tell the audience how silly the bears were. Then of course, when the wheels came off our economy, as predicted by us, Schiff, Roubini, etc, then the laughing stopped and turned into "excuse making". Jim Cramer is famous for it. When his predictions go awry, and they do almost daily, it's never because he's an agenda driven blowhard. Nope, it's always "because someone else didn't follow my rules". How disgusting.

The following is a short clip from the Movie "network" which aired in 1976.  In the movie a network with poor ratings attempts to increase their viewership, and the "anchor" goes sort of nuts, which ends up boosting the ratings and giving the network a hit.  What is truly stunning, is that the points that "Howard Beale" "the nut" brings out to his audience is more true today, than in the 33 years ago when this movie was made. Granted it was made as a satire, but the points made ring out true to this very day.  Please listen to this diatribe, and align it with the absolute garbage you see on TV all day every day. it really was an incredibly "prescient" piece

Here he is as he "goes nuts" on live TV.

In the next clip, he's got his own show, and he lays out exactly what TV, the media, and advertising has done to us as a nation. It's tremendously great stuff.
