– The MEDIA –
Peddlers of Truth – or just GRUBS without morality!
11th June 2012.
|Who reads daily newspapers anymore? Who believes what newspapers print and vision media deliver? When is the truth stretched until it is no longer believable? Who has a mind to tell the truth as it really is, or just a watered down version because the real truth would not suit or help a cause?
Who are the biggest peddlers of the ‘dish-washed’ version of a news story – who writes their own ‘copy’ with a view to cause a media ‘beat-up’? It is easy to sling the mud – and with a news cycle normally limited to 24 hours or so, the next news story is always only a heart beat away.
Let us get real for a moment –
In this mayhem of news uncertainty – who can be trusted to deliver the truth – research is long forgotten – too time consuming and someone else might beat you to the story.
Lets us examine some evidence –
The western perspective on human existence has become a soft perspective. Soft in the sense that unless it comes easy – via debt purchase or creature comforts – living in hardship is not an option. News delivers confronting images and stories – the western response is to not watch and believe out of sight is out of mind. It is the same with the ease at which media reporting is believed to always be the truth. Yet time and time again stories get altered, retold with new facts, i.e. The Azaria Chamberlin story is about to have another inquest verdict some 30 years later – this was a story that changed on its verdict many times and was retold as new generations of law enforcement revisited the facts.
What is the truth – the Chamberlains told their story and it was never believed. How much responsibility of that tragedy rests with the media and their speculative imput that swayed public opinion. How much sway does the media have in forming opinions on any issue.
Take the ‘children overboard’ scandal. John Howard never faced charges in the way he fooled all Australia into believing that ‘boat-people’ threw their own children into the ocean to force the navy to rescue them. The truth eventually came out after the election – yet Howard rained for another six years.
The truth behind Gillard’s coup to gain the Prime Minister job was revealed after the fact – she lied about when she began to join the plotters, and when her staff started to write her acceptance speech.
These issues were big news stories at the time and all found to be based on lies and fodder fed to the press to print and promote vested interests. The MEDIA are as linked to the slant of truth that suits a MASTER – a master that pays for the collusion, the lies, the agenda, everything but the absolute truth.
It is right to question, and to question everything put out there – for if we don’t then we are sheep and deserve all that comes forth.
