No matter who the president is, no one side can win. We are becoming a generation that is black or white when it used to be that the best information was found in the gray areas. However, one thing is being addressed that no one would believe could have been address by any other political figure head we’ve had in office since John F. Kennedy.
We are on the brink (if we are smart) as a nation to demand our media do more of a job reporting than just carry out their individual corporate agendas. News outlets conservative and democratic are dis-attached from well rounded view about news.
As a country that just finished enduring the most pathetic of political debates this century, how much of our angst and anxiety about the leaders and the future leaders of our country, hang on the breaking news coverage of the Corporate Cable Conglomerates. Ultimately, its corporate America feeding our minds and fears however they see fit all in the name of improving their ratings. They apply no sense of balance in news worthy opinions. It’s too painful for either side to agree.
The United States might be the only civilized culture that’s media is willing to compromise the security of its country to get out a story. Under the First Amendment not all speech is protected. Commercial Speech is an area of the First Amendment that is less protected such as advertisements that are completely misleading they can be prohibited entirely.
Who is doing what
See, we the people, meaning the enlightened human being, were under the impression that news media was a control of the government. The political news of the country such as security and intelligence is relayed by someone. Correct? Who gets the news about strategic US decisions and why is it public information? We are finding out that we’re wrong. News is not as government run as the hippies thought it was. Problem lies in the fact that it’s worse, it’s run by Corporate America a faceless coward.
We are playing this game of “dumb and dumber”. Americans cant get an objective story because in all honesty we hate each others differentiating opinions and views. Racism as we know it is not the pressing problem The problem is Democratic and Republican and all the ideology surrounding what it means to one or the other. A Republican in the eyes of a Democrat is a red-neck uneducated, anti-choice, anti gay and lesbian capitalist while a Democratic to a Republican is a big government, liberal baby killing socialist minority lover who wants men to be able to use womens’ bathrooms. It’s no wonder their is so much hate. How can anyone sit down at a table and have a decent conversation, work together to better improve society and culture or live out Martin Luther King’s “American dream.”
Fixing the problem
When we look around the country our infrastructure is old, the political system is old and no one is there to do anything about it. We need help. We need the media to actually work, listen to people, report the issues surrounding the country not air puppets with one hour shows entertaining their followers within the political party. We are over that. A journalist is supposed to get out into the community, engage humanity and tell the story. Journalism should do a better job bringing people together instead it’s tearing us apart.
The innocent days of communication
Remember the game we all played in kindergarten. You leaned over to little Susie while giggling on the inside, you told her the information that Johnny just told you. Now go back to that moment. You are sitting Indian style waiting to here whats going to be told to you. In a split second you are about to receive the message in your ear, you know its going to be good. Here it comes! Got it! From the moment you here it to the moment you relay it something happens. We want to mix things up a bit. It’s devilish but its what kids do but now its what media does and what politicians always do. Dishonesty shows.
In business class we learned “Caveat Emptor” – Let the buyer beware. Keep in mind when you read news articles and blogs from main stream media or even less main street media anybody can write anything. If you have a problem with this article that’s fine too it means I got my point across. Think freely on your own, gather information objectively, keep an eye out on the source of the information, battle test the content and let it go. Keep in mind very very few people know what is really going on. Chances are we are in the dark well.
