Since we know corporate media lied about Iraq, why do we believe them now about ISIS?



I certainly don't believe a thing they say, and yet they are still leading the narrative in this country.

Why do they have any credibility at all?

Isn't it possible that they are again, lying about what is going on in Iraq, to start/extend another war?

It would be incredibly naive and irresponsible to blindly believe the US media or any media about ISIS.

1. We don't. But the media says the jury is still out on whether we should believe ISIS is truthful.

Monsters, yes, but are they liars also???

The media is always in it for the fear factor...always.

2. "The corporate media tells us Obama was born in Hawaii, why

 

should we believe them?"

Maybe because every sane person on the planet pretty much has the same opinion on ISIS.

But, if you want to live in a fantasy world where ISIS are not evil bastards but rather unfairly smeared freedom fighters resisting US hegemony, there's no law against that.

3. I assume any story which impacts the uber-wealthy or uber-powerful will be slanted in

favor of the M$M's pimps.

I don't assume that they are dishonest about every story, but IF a story is spun, then it will always be spun to favor big money, and never to oppose it.

If it is advantageous to someone wealthy or powerful for the media to lie, exaggerate or distort ISIS stories then they probably are doing exactly that.
