Media Lies!

Reining in the Corporate influence on news media should be one of the few Bi-partisan issues that for anyone not sitting on the board of some, “TOO BIG TO FAIL”conglomerate or  who doesn’t  have an offshore bank account should be  looking to support.

The media has always been under scrutiny because of bias. It used to be that “journalistic bias” was a result of  journalists that let their objectivity be compromised. We as people are  imperfect, even great journalists fail to live up by  the high standards set upon them.  People’s careers used to be made or destroyed by integrity-sadly, this is no longer true.

In our world integrity is a buzzword and the meaning is fluid; not that this is part of a paradigm shift in the way people think but the end result of  us becoming jaded, blind sheep in a herd following the latest controversial tweet and misinformation-ripe for the picking.

The problem is not only about the bias that represents us–don’t lie to yourself, it’s always been about “Us Versus Them”  but that’s  just view preference. The left / right news viewer bias is but a mere pimple on a roach’s ass compared to the collusion between politics and corporations that control the media today.

The news can LEGALLY lie http://www.projectcensored.org/11-the-media-can-legally-lie/

Take the current  presidential primaries. On one hand you have the so called “liberal  media” CBS, ABC, and NBC, cable channels CNN, MSNBC. On the other the Right-Wing media giant  Faux News- who the hell cares, I guess my own bias is showing right now.

One would think that on the left the debate should cover policy, and the candidate’s records but instead we get  BOXING MATCHES purposely designed to expose a trivial weakness of a candidate, any tid-bit that the Corporate news outlets deems unworthy and uses to destroy the non-establisment candiate—on the right?  Who the hell cares, did I mention that my own bias is showing right now?

Perhaps; true objectivity lies outside Network news? Try again! AOL owns, the ONCE KING liberal ghost own known as The Huffington Post on the Right you have websites like Townhall owned by Satan?

It’s no big surprise that increasingly people have turned to smaller venues that claim to be  NEUTRAL and corporate influence free. Well let’s take a looksie at a random online publication.

From time to time  I crawl “the great Al Gore’s Internetz”,  looking for the latest news, what?! do you think I turning on MSNBC?,today was such a time. I have seen people cite, what I like to call DailyGarbageBin http://www.dailynewsbin.com  a few times.

Today’s guano installment  was a complete misrepresentation of Bernie Sanders meeting with Pope Francis  http://www.dailynewsbin.com/opinion/pope-confirms-he-did-not-have-a-meeting-with-bernie-sanders-handshake-and-nothing-more/24497/

Clearly the Pope met Sanders, clearly they spoke briefly, at least to detail the problems on economic injustice a topic  both men are passionate about. So the  RAG called  DailyNewsBin ( more like garbage bin) did a hatchet job painting  Sanders as dishonest about the meeting and that the Pope was belligerent towards Sanders.

Pope Francis DID make sure to state he was not endorsing  anyone, that people should not take the meeting as such  “Pope Francis said on Saturday that his meeting with Sanders was not meddling in politics and that anyone who thought otherwise should “look for a psychiatrist”.     http://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2016/apr/16/bernie-sanders-meets-pope-francis-at-the-vatican  I love the Pontiff for saying that, he did not want to have another situation like the TRUE ambush by the right-wing bigot Kim Davis.

http://time.com/4296737/heres-what-bernie-sanders-and-pope-francis-talked-about/

So why did mention the DailyGARBAGEBin at all? It’s not part of the mass media, it has a limited  audience, who do they hurt? Simply because it’s one of those publications that LIES when it claims to be a neutral voice,  saying that it reports what the media ignores with an unbiased point of view. Clearly it is not. We have many such bubbles on the internet seemingly they appear to be an alternative to the mass media  “MONSTERS” but in their insular world, they are just as damaging as any corporate owned echo chamber.

We need to make it a national point to address the rampant corporate influence of the media because they are not only censoring, as the project media censoring article shows, but they are changing the political landscape to in effect dictate who can become president.  The mass media are spawning independent misinformation sites, I cannot think anything more dire situation impacting the current  presidential primaries.

    Oh look a Huffington Post bigot, not surprised at all.

    A student was removed from a flight after telling his uncle, in Arabic, about the question he asked the UN secretary general

    “A woman seated in front of Makzhoomi — who also writes for the Berkeley Political Review and contributes to the Huffington Post — apparently thought she heard him say “shahid,” the Arabic word for martyr, Makhzoomi later learned. In reality, he had told his uncle that “inshallah,” or god willing, he would call again when he landed.”

    Bernie Sanders’ Team Just Accused Hillary Clinton of Violating Campaign Finance Rules https://news.vice.com/article/bernie-sanders-hillary-clinton-victory-fund-dnc-campaign-finance-rules

    “In a letter to embattled DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Sanders campaign attorney Brad Deutsch questioned whether the Clinton campaign had “violated legal limits on donations” through activities associated with the Hillary Victory Fund. The HVF is a joint fundraising committee, which raises and spends money on behalf of Hillary for America (Clinton’s official campaign committee), the DNC, and 33 state Democratic parties.

    The Sanders campaign said that the way the committee was set up allowed it to receive individual donations worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, aruging that some donations to the committee exceeded up to 130 times the $2,700 individual donors are allowed to contribute to campaigns under federal election rules. A lot of that money is flowing to Clinton’s campaign to pay for campaigning activities and salaries, Deutsch said, in “serious apparent violations” of the law.

    In total, individuals can give up to $358,000 to the joint fundraising committee, should a Democratic donor choose to max out to Clinton’s campaign, the DNC and each state party. But the Clinton campaign itself can only accept $2,700 from each individual donor, which is processed through the joint fundraising committee and passed on to her campaign. The Sanders team is arguing that the remaining high-dollar donations are still benefiting her, even though the money is not directly flowing through her campaign’s coffers.”

    U.K. Science Minister Torpedoes ‘Boaty McBoatface’ As Ship Name http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2016/04/19/474805391/u-k-science-minister-torpedoes-boaty-mcboatface-as-ship-name

    “Appearing to drown all hope that the U.K.’s new $300 million research vessel will be named “Boaty McBoatface,” Science Minister Jo Johnson says the ship needs a more “suitable” name.

    Although Boaty McBoatface decisively won a public poll that Britain’s Natural Environment Research Council launched last month to whip up enthusiasm about science, Johnson told BBC Radio 5 Live on Monday that “there is a process now for us to review all of the public’s choices. Many of them were imaginative; some were more suitable than others.”

        3 million independent voters that registered as Democrat whose “paperwork” went missing.

        NEW YORK, NEW YORK — With less than 24 hours until the presidential primary, a group of New Yorkers who saw their party affiliations mysteriously switched are filing a lawsuit Monday seeking to open the state’s closed primary so that they can cast a ballot.
        New York has the earliest change-of-party deadline in the country — registered independent voters who wanted to participate in Tuesday’s presidential primary had to change their party by last October. Many voters missed that deadline — or thought they met it, only to have paperwork get lost in the mail — and are disenfranchised as a result.

    “A lawsuit filed by disenfranchised New York voters claiming their party affiliation was switched without their consent has been met with new obstacles.

    Election Justice USA, the plaintiff filing the lawsuit, demanded that any provisional ballots cast as a result of not being able to vote as Democrats in New York’s closed primary be counted along with all other ballots. A federal judge heard the plaintiff’s case this afternoon, but rather than granting or dismissing the motion, the judge punted the case down to the county level. Election Justice USA will now have to get representatives from all 63 counties in New York to the courtroom as defendants for a hearing at a later date.”

      voter FRAUD (disenfranchised) is the last bastion of the establishment to hold-dear their precious power!

    “Bernie Sanders supporters won Colorado’s three seats on the Democratic National Committee, ousting longtime party leaders and Hillary Clinton loyalists.

    The Democratic delegates at the state convention elected Terry Tucker, Jeri Shepherd and Mike Hamrick, the party announced late Monday. Sanders endorsed all three candidates and the campaign’s supporters worked to get them elected at the party confab Saturday in Loveland.

    The selections give party outsiders a foothold in the state and national Democratic leadership amid concerns about bias toward Clinton and other establishment candidates. Sanders’ strong showing at precinct and county level party meetings helped him stack the deck at the state convention — where he won the straw poll and claimed a majority of the delegates.

    But his big showing does little to help with superdelegates in the 2016 election. The new DNC members will take office the day after the Democratic national convention in Philadelphia.”
