The extremely powerful corporate conglomerates which comprise the mainstream media are lying to you about everything. By this I don’t mean that the individual stories reported by corporate media outlets have no basis in fact, I mean that they’ve been lying to you about your world, your country, your society, your government and the way it all works for as long as you’ve been alive. They are more or less telling the truth when they report that a celebrity has died or that a cute little white kid has gone missing, but they are knowingly lying about the big picture within which those small events happen.
Throughout the course of my humble little gig here I’ve been trying to highlight this fact by pointing out the individual lies of these corporate media giants, like the time CNN knowingly staged a fake interview featuring a seven year-old girl who can’t speak English reading scripted war propaganda to their unsuspecting audience, or the way they’ve been relentlessly promulgating the debunked Russiagate conspiracy theory, but these can still be looked at as isolated instances by those not quite ready to look straight at the reality of the all-encompassing web of deceit that these corporate giants have been weaving. Luckily, this can be done simply by applying logic and reason to the simple, undeniable fact that the world is shitty right now and the status quo doesn’t work.
