Media need to reassess priorities

March 2, 2013

It’s easy to be a journalist, writer, author and report the news from either a right or left personal perspective; however where the challenge lies is when a person writes from a moderate stance and observes the state, national and worldly events from the facts presented, reporting same disregarding what their personal beliefs may be at the present time.

When the events show the attitude, behavior and direction of policies what more could be reported, but what lies in front of the writer!  This is where our journalistic empire has not only embarrassed, but let the American people down with the nonsense that they publish.  America's media empire is at fault for reporting the nonfactual nonsense that Americans are educated themselves and their youth, all the while dumbing down their intelligential capabilities.

The national news media through TV, newspapers, magazines, internet, books, cable, etc. needs to reassess their priorities and remember what reporting the news was over a hundred years ago and not turn it into  a side show.   What we as a society are living with at the present time, whether financial, educational, business and domestic, it all derives from the media’s influence over our political process, which then affects everyone and everything.

American people in the 21st century need to educate themselves with what is going on with our nation’s current events and the repercussions of those actions demonstrating the attitude and behavior which reflects on the intent of its agenda. Most law enforcement are trained not to believe the spoken word, for that is where the deception lies; believe the attitude and behavior for that will hold the truth.   The truth is in your face!
