    The news is right and you're wrong. Being wrong and not having the sense to admit it makes you feel like shit within your soul...So you need to lash out on the news for dearing to make you feel bad.

    You're just idiots.

    You are beyond lost. Someone that has been brainwashed has nothing to teach.

    You don't know how to think critically. I just posted for you all the times that the mainstream has been outed as wrong. They are wrong all the time. They have no standards.

    10 Honest News Sites Way Better Than Anything in the Mainstream Media
    10 Honest News Sites Way Better Than Anything in the Mainstream Media - Eluxe Magazine

    For example, it was recently reported that the Pentagon paid a PR firm $540 million to make – and fake – ‘terror’ videos in Iraq. Yep, that’s right: the American government, not ISIS, was behind those nauseating scenes – and they made them to scare you into supporting even further military spending in the Middle East.


    Moreover, it’s recently been shown that Project Mockingbird, the CIA’s project to embed their agents within news outlets, wasn’t killed off by George Bush Sr, as was previously reported. In fact, the Department of Justice in America has recently given the green light to FBI agents conducting undercover investigations to impersonate journalists — effectively legalizing Operation Mockingbird. CNN’s Anderson Cooper is just one of several high profile journalists who have recently been pointed to as being a CIA agent, responsible for planting (dis)information from the intelligence agency. No wonder his ABC show was called ‘The Mole’!


    In 2009, it was reported that the Pentagon had hired controversial PR firm, The Rendon Group, to monitor the reporting of journalists embedded with the US military, to assess whether they were providing coverage that was “positive” enough to America’s missions. Hmmm…


    Thirdly, the concentration of media ownership means that less diversity of opinion is being heard. According to Business Insider, 90% of the American mainstream media is owned by only 6 corporations, meaning your news is filtered by highly powerful interests who are often closely connected to large corporations and politicians – and won’t report anything negative about them, even if it’s in the public’s interests.


    Finally, and perhaps most shockingly, in the USA, it is actually legal to lie in the news. The First Amendment to the US Constitution protects freedom of speech, and courts in the US have ruled on many occasions that freedom of speech also includes the freedom to lie. The rationale is that such rulings give space for unpopular statements of fact. For example, in 2012, the US Supreme Court voted 6-3 to affirm a lower court decision to overturn a conviction for lying about one’s credentials.


    Washington State Supreme Court even ruled that lying to get votes, distinguishing between fact and opinion, was not something that the state should negotiate. It wrote that people and not the government should be the final arbiter of truth in a political debate.


    Some kinds of lying are not covered by the First Amendment. For example, lying while under oath, lying to a government official, or lying to sell a product. But the Supreme Court has emphatically ruled that media outlets have a right to lie, as this video below illustrates perfectly.


    Need I say more? Can I get a . . . . .

    News doesn't made me feel bad, since I'm never paying attention to it.

    If you take guns away fro good citizens, only the criminals will have guns. That could be problematic.

    You mean lame stream TV "news" was even tolerable in the last 2 decades?

    Not sure how they could have gotten worse after the 2000 election.
