    My opinion is that even though there is suppose to be Freedom of speech, the press, media, etc. that the government and some rich people like Bloomie control what is printed or presented in the media. Again just my honest opinion. God Bless

    We don't hear of them generally, IMO, because they're a clear threat to the stranglehold the "powerful" have over the "powerless." And those holding those reins want to keep it that way. The media understand this, and the media is lambasted in the extreme when it forgets its due role in support of the control freaks who'd lash out at them if they didn't toe the line.

    My cynical nugget for the month.

    Freedom of speech doesn't mean that the media will follow whatever story you choose. Freedom of speech means that you are free to start your own media organization to report on whatever you choose without interference from the government. If you don't like what's being reported, pony up several hundreds of million dollars and start your own newspaper/channel.

    Yup. They can "report" whatever they choose about their activities. And they're welcome to whatever degree of play that gets, if they're able. That's freedom.

    It's just that so many worthwhile things are often deliberately shoveled under the rug, in this current political environment where bucking the boot off the neck is attempted. Folks don't much want to hear about such rabble-rousing, and media outlets don't much want to report it. After all, it's not bleeding ... so it's not leading.

    I was at a new friends house recently. So we're talkin' and he say have you ever seen this paper? I read 4 or 5 headlines from front and back and tell him it looks like a paper I read 20 years ago called The Spotlight. Then he says this is that paper!! I got 3 recent copies to read at my leisure.

    IF you want to hear about what's going on in America, monitor the foreign news sites. You'll get a better idea of what's going on.

    If one wants to be well-read or engage in responsible citizenship, IMO that's a must. Hard to root out even the least of the snow jobs without at least some semblance of the other perspectives.

    I saw that very same lil ditty just an hour ago on Ram Rod's profile. I wish I still had that old tube SW receiver I scored at a GS like 20+years ago. It picked up stations half way across the planet that a transistor SW from Radio Rat I still have but it stinks for listening/tuning in stuff.

    I have a few in my favorite that I like to peruse they give you an entirely different perspective as to what our media reports. As far as our media, anything that disagrees with His Lordship or His cartel is racist and not worthy of reporting.

    That would be more freedom of the press than free speech.

    A couple of things. The WH gets protest groups all the time from across the political spectrum. And, personally, I get as much news on a few such sites as this as anywhere else as I don't own a TV.
    The fact is that the internet has arrived enabling the grass roots to become the media and the mass media to become more prolific offering feature bloggers. Maintain different perspectives. See the forest for the trees.

    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.
