    hmmmm..let's see what I can think of.


    Propaganda - the dissemination of information aimed at influencing the opinions or behaviors of large numbers of people. As opposed to impartially providing information, propaganda in its most basic sense presents information in order to influence its audience. Propaganda often presents facts selectively (thus lying by omission) to encourage a particular synthesis, or gives loaded messages in order to produce an emotional rather than rational response to the information presented. The desired result is a change of the attitude toward the subject in the target audience to further a political agenda.

    Same here. I noticed Fox News, CNN, etc. filters out what they don't want everyone to know. They are all part-time truth tellers

    Yup. I agree.
    Used a reference to the Mexico thing in an opinion piece.
    Seems like most people don't know, don't care to know, and absorb the major media party line like a thirsty man at a drinking fountain.

    CBS has been a propaganda machine for the leftists for quite some time now.

    That is a great letter. I wonder what these news stations would do if they receive letters like this on a regular basis showing them that people are catching on to their BS.

    CBS .. well there's a scoop. Better not buy a Fender Mexican Strat. There might be a hidden gun in them.

    I hope that you don't think...for a moment...that they really care what anyone thinks.
    Writing a letter is a complete waste of time.

    I know they don't care and will never change, but it does make them aware that many people are seeing through crap..

    Actually is partially accurate. If you take into account that the majority of manufacturers are from the US, well yes, 75% is a viable number. It does not say upfront that 75% of the guns were taken illegally from the US to Mexico. The rest of the slanted report makes you think that way and that is what they are aiming: to associate all guns as illegal and the US the biggest contributor to the mexican drug killings.

    Remember the movie Absence of Malice?

    Suppose you picked up this morning's newspaper and your life was a front page headline... And everything they said was accurate... But none of it was true.
    You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.

    It's too bad that TV cannot be a two way venue, I was screaming just that at the tube during the report, the good part is the wife was agreeing with everything I said... Now that was a news worthy item alone....
