How do you know what articles to dismiss as propaganda?
As writers, we know to ‘hook’ a reader by some means in the first thirteen sentences. If not, they set the book down and move on.
Journalists attempt to hook you in the title.
Both of us typically will use some emotional hook to either warm our hearts or make our heads explode.
A perfect example of articles not to read include words like falsely or buffoonery.
Here is why you can ignore them. By the very title, you already know the writer is not objective.
Where the news is concerned, it must be objective.
If the writer injects their opinion, it is no longer news but propaganda.
I am amazed that there are no ethics in journalism today. We know that politicians lie. We know they tell us what they think we want to hear.
The line is blurred when the media becomes the spokespeople for either branch of government. Who becomes president becomes a rating game between the different media giants.
If they can keep us mad enough, we will act. It might be simply getting us to the polls or something much darker.
The murder rate we see today is undoubtedly affected by the talking heads.
If you walk into a theatre and scream ‘fire,’ you are breaking the law. The law is there because the screaming of fire will most certainly cause a stampede, much like the tragedy in Houston a few weeks ago.
The media has been screaming racism for the last several years. Those who shout that word the loudest are probably the biggest racist of them all. As a journalist, that should be illegal.
Their claims are unfounded.
If this country was as horrible as they make it out to be, why is the rest of the world trying to get here?
The media promotes the narrative. Those who only watch or read certain stations or papers parrot what those propagandists promote.
With social media in the mix, the parroting of propaganda is amplified. Since the social media giants are also part of the publishing process and have a distinct bias, the world is screwed.
No, the masses are not smart enough to look for the facts. A talking head stood in front of a town on fire and told you it was a peaceful protest. Don’t believe your lying eyes.
Many, too many to mention, agreed that the billions of dollars of damage caused and the deaths of innocent people resulted from a peaceful protest.
Finally, this is a big one, since when did vigilantism become fashionable?
Crowds used megaphones outside a courthouse threatening a jury. If you don’t convict, we will find you.
This, again, is the fault of the media. They are not reporting the facts; instead, they keep the masses divided on as many fronts as possible.
Ask yourself this, and be honest.
If George Floyd were white, and the cop was black, would that story have even been reported, much less gone viral around the globe?
Would people still burn down cities and kill innocent people because they were enraged by the unfair treatment of fellow humans?
You know the answer. That, my friends, is the problem. We have been brainwashed by the media.
My skin color or my gender does not define who I am.
My behavior defines me. My character as a fellow human is all that counts. That is the truth of it for everyone else.
I have turned the lying bastards off. I know human nature, and no, Epstein did not hang himself.
Yes, the FBI was involved in setting the stage for January 6th.
Yes, Chris Cuomo violated ethical standards. I am confident it was not the first time.
Those who fake hate crimes should suffer the fate of someone who perpetrated a hate crime. That includes the lying ass media who constantly scream racism when it is not there.
If you really want to understand why, you need to realize that the ‘media’ is controlled by interests outside of our country. They are mega multimedia giants, and they own everything from radio to TV to magazines and newspapers. We are being played by our adversaries. The purpose is to distract us while the geopolitical stage is much darker.
There can only be one reason why a man spends millions to keep criminals on the streets, time and time again. With murders in your neighborhood, your “kitchen table talk” will not have time to include power struggles between the superpowers. If you cannot afford groceries and are forced to choose between heating your home or buying gas for the car, which will you choose?
What will you do when you are told who is to blame for it, and it involves race? Yep, you might believe it, and you might do something foolish.
It is a lie and a control mechanism. Biden will Fiddle while the USA burns, and those who control him will continue to push the buttons that distract the masses. Now they are talking war with Russia. Who the fuck thinks nukes are a good idea?
Nobody sane would dream of it but, sanity is a questionable commodity with the God complexes around.
Ok, so I am done with my thought of the day. Maybe next time, I will take on the deaths of over 5 million at the hands of some foolish people.
My latest novel Forensic Assassin will be released soon on Amazon and KDP. I will leave it on Unlimited for three months before taking it to other outlets. Amazon has a no-compete clause when you use KDP.. Follow me here for more info. @authortwscott
