Presidential Treason Old News? Here is More Old News: (Where are the Lynch Mobs for the Media?)

When I say that the establishment media are the greatest enemy of the American people, I am not joking! The people in the media, knowingly or not, have conspired to prevent you from knowing or realizing the most important information in the world. They make it possible for the establishment to commit crimes against you, your food, your air, your planet and your country. Yes, I am saying that there is a controlling entity to our nation and to our world. And if you dont realize that by now you may as well stop reading this and wait for the next episode of Larry King where he will no doubt cover some non-news story that has no effect on you, the world, society, life, the local population and will only effect about 100 people out of the nearly 7 billion people on Earthand he will pretend as hard as he can that it is news!

The latest old news to be passed over by the establishment media is the most recent smoking gun adding to the proof that Dick Cheney and his hand puppet George W. Bush did, as we all know, commit treason by intentionally exposing the identity of a covert CIA operativebecause the husband of that agent exposed another treasonous lie of theirs! When I turn on the so called news I can not believe the bullshit that is being passed on as national news while so many vital news stories are ignored! I dont get itsomeone tell me why we should not kill these people? I am not kidding! These people deserve to be killed in the most horrible torturous way imaginable for what they have allowed to take place in this world without doing their job and letting us know!

Here are a few little pieces of old news that our media dont think you need to know

4. Do you think the reason people don't do anything is because they don't know WHAT can be done,
to make things right? Is it that we have gone right past helplessness, straight to dispair?

This article is a very good rallying cry. Here's more:
We are being lied to every day about almost everything. The garbage that is passed on as news has become so obvious that the on-air news reporting criminals in our nation must be taking drugs in order to keep from laughing as they struggle to look like actual journalists while they cover stories like local crimes of passion, personal celebrity tragedies and movie news (and box office reports) while presidential treason is ignored!

Journalism, freedom of the press, is the only vocation protected by the US Constitution. There is a reason for that. Actually there are many reasons for that all of which can be summed up by saying that the journalists are supposed to protect the citizens from the people in power. They are doing to opposite! These people are holding blindfolds over your eyes as they allow you and your children to be raped in every way imaginable. Why do we permit this? How loud do I have to scream before the masses understand this?
His points are well chosen, and correct. Thank you for the article.

5. I kinda agree...
... but the fact is that the people in this country get the media and the government they deserve.

While there are doubtless more insidious causes for the amazingly useless nature of the news, the biggest cause is that people WATCH the crap, that is what they WANT and what gets ratings.

Americans tuned out of really trying to understand what is going on long ago. Most Americans think the media are all liars just like the politicians. They have tuned out.

Improvements in the media are one of the handful of good things that is going to come of the impending financial crisis. It's going to affect a lot of people. They are going to be angry at being awakened from their stupor. At being told everything was coming up roses when it clearly was not. They are going to demand to know how this happened, and who is responsible. I'm looking forward to it.
