The Four Reasons the Mainstream Media Is Worthless

There are four reasons that the mainstream media is worthless.

1. Self-Censorship by Journalists

Initially, there is tremendous self-censorship by journalists.

For example, several months after 9/11, famed news anchor Dan Rather told the BBC that American reporters were practicing "a form of self-censorship":

"there was a time in South Africa that people would put flaming tires around peoples' necks if they dissented. And in some ways the fear is that you will be necklaced here, you will have a flaming tire of lack of patriotism put around your neck. Now it is that fear that keeps journalists from asking the toughest of the tough questions.... And again, I am humbled to say, I do not except myself from this criticism.

"What we are talking about here - whether one wants to recognise it or not, or call it by its proper name or not - is a form of self-censorship."

I highly recommend reading the complete article at the link.

Yes indeed, when it comes to the most important issues of our times, the mainstream media is almost a complete waste of time. Thankfully we have the internet and ourselves to rely upon in order to get the truth out.

And it is vitally important to inform the population about false flag terror, rigged elections, corrupt government etc, so that action can be taken against such oppression. The people must be told what is happening so they are aware of the real danger. If we can identify the real enemy then we can plan to stop the rot.

In the case of the mainstream media, either they will be forced to follow the stories covered online or they will become irrelevant.
