No real media in America
    #1041392 - 11/10/02 06:43 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

I hear the media talk about how they are 'Fair and balanced', urging me to believe that there is 'Truth in Media' and 'Accurate unbiased reporting'. It's all a lie. The media in this country has been bought and paid for by Big Business corporate bullshit. The impending War on Iraq, complete with the most popular buzzwords of the day, 'Weapons of Mass Destruction' and the like is nothing more than a buyout of public sentiment. The oil conglomerates are big advertisers on all American news channels and threaten to pull out the millions of dollars of advertising if they go against the grain and report the truth rather than the hype.

Ever wonder why the media doesn't report that hundreds of thousands of people worldwide have been marching to protest another Iraqi invasion that will kill tens of thousands of innocent civillians and put hundreds of thousands of troops in danger all to take out Sadaam? One man ... hundreds of thousands in danger to do it .... all the while the 'reasons' the Bush regime states are hypocritical? The United States has Weapons of Mass Destruction ... the United States will NOT allow UN weapons inspectors in our country ... North Korea has ADMITTED that they have a nuclear in place ... It's all about oil, all about money, greed and corruption. Lives will be lost for the sacred Dollar. It sickens me.

I really belive that Sadaam is a threat, at least to his own people. I do NOT believe that he has a weapons program that can threaten America. The other side of the coin is 'Why wait until he can threaten America'?
I believe that we should hold true to the UN resolutions and ideas about 'pre-emptive strikes'. Not blackmail and threaten the UN unless they fall in line and carry out yet another American ploy to test out our Toys of Mass Destruction.

Peace
Buzz

World Link TV - http://www.worldlinktv.org/ - listed as LINK on DirecTV.

They have zero advertising so have no one to answer to as far as the concerns I listed above. They rely only on private funding to survive.

Lots of independantly-produced documentaries and news and music and more.

That's definately biased, BuzzDoctor, it's just biased in a different direction. Sure, if you agree completely with everything they say then you won't think it's biased, just like some idiots think Fox is unbiased.
