How many times have we heard the news agency boasting on having “expert” advice that just happens to be from the government sector. It is as if we hear the same propaganda from different sources making it appear as if all these different reporters are accepting it as their story, when in reality it came from the same press debriefing at the White House.
News reporting should be investigative and should embrace opposition. we should witness a debate on our TV’s for and against a subject. We should have reporters willing to look for the facts and present them with out the worry of loosing their careers.They should make us think about the issue and decide for ourselves what is wright and wrong.
I find that Americans are becoming complacent at being told propaganda as if we are afraid of real news. America is based on freedoms that allow us to be different. If we are all afraid to be different who will stand for us when we take our turn at being outside the circle of popular opinion.
Did you know Phil Donahue, who was controversial about the “facts” of the war, was taken off the air because of his opinion? If no one can give any true debate to the “official” report, we should just let the Government run the news agencies. At least then we could see who is really controlling the news.
Man kind has made great strives in science, religious beliefs and social beliefs due to people who where willing to stand against the grain of popular belief. We must not rise to every opposing position and embrace it as truth just because it is opposing. No, but what we should do is not condemn different opinions just because we don’t belief the same way.
