It’s funny: we have the absolute worst, most biased, corrupt news reporting of all time in this country at exactly the same time as we have the worst two major party presidential candidates in our nation’s entire history! You know, I think it’s possible that there is some link between the news shilling for candidates nobody actually likes or trusts and the fact that hardly anybody trusts the news media anymore. It would be almost perversely amusing if it were not so harmful to our country.
Hm, I can’t help but wonder if people would trust our news more if the news told the truth more often? And I know it’s probably not permissible, but if the news tried informing the public about politics in a non-biased manner, would people perhaps trust the news more still? And if news stories were not so obviously used to push agendas the majority of the country disagrees with, do you think it's possible that…? (Nah: probably not. The news industry has so badly poisoned the well of public trust in their arrogant attempt to brainwash and indoctrinate American citizens that I think it's unlikely they will be able to win back the public’s trust at this point. And it’s their own fault. By putting partisan propaganda misinformation ahead of informing the public, the news industry in America has poisoned its own integrity in a very public way. Using the news as a way to try to tell people what to think was journalistic malpractice from the start, and I think most Americans resent it by now. It sure leaves a bad taste in my mouth: and how!)
