25 Facts That The Mainstream Media Doesn’t Really Want To Talk About Right Now

25 Facts That The Mainstream Media Doesn't Really Want To Talk About Right NowFor decades, the mainstream media in the United States was accustomed to being able to tell the American people what to think.  Unfortunately for them, a whole lot of Americans are starting to break free from that paradigm and think for themselves.  A Gallup survey from earlier this year found that 60 percent of all Americans “have little or no trust” in the mainstream media.  More people than ever are realizing that the mainstream media is giving them a very distorted version of “the truth” and they are increasingly seeking out alternative sources of information.  In the United States today, just six giant media corporations control the mainstream media.  Those giant media corporations own television networks, cable channels, movie studios, radio stations, newspapers, magazines, publishing houses, music labels and even many prominent websites.  But now thanks to the Internet the mainstream media no longer has a complete monopoly on the news.  In recent years the “alternative media” has exploded in popularity.  People want to hear about the things that the mainstream media doesn’t really want to talk about.  They want to hear news that is not filtered by corporate bosses and government censors.  They want “the truth” and they know that they are not getting it from the mainstream media.

We are watching a media revolution happen, and many in the mainstream media are totally freaking out about it.  In fact, some in the mainstream media have even begun publishing articles that mock the American people for not trusting them.  For example, a recent CNN article entitled “Still ‘paranoid’ after all these years” portrayed Americans that don’t trust the media as paranoid conspiracy theorists that have left rationality behind…

Ever have the feeling you’re being lied to by the news media, the authorities, the corporate world? That somebody — or something — is out to get you?You’re not alone.

Welcome to 21st-century America.

Look around. Trust is hitting historic lows. Just a third of Americans have a favorable view of the federal government, a decline of 31% since 2002, according to the Pew Center for People and the Press. Gallup has Congress’ approval rating is in the low 20s, after nearing single digits last summer. And the news media aren’t much better off.

“Negative opinions about the performance of news organizations now equal or surpass all-time highs on nine of 12 core measures the Pew Research Center has been tracking since 1985,” a Pew report said.

The article goes on to make it sound like it is very irrational not to trust the media, but in this day and age it is imperative that we all learn to think for ourselves.  Blindly trusting someone else to do your thinking for you is very dangerous.

Anyone that does not acknowledge that the mainstream media has an agenda is not being honest with themselves.  The mainstream media presents a view of the world that is very favorable to their big corporate owners and the big corporations that spend billions of dollars to advertise on their networks.  The mainstream media is the mouthpiece of the establishment, and the worldview being pushed on the big networks is going to be consistent with the economic, financial, political and social goals of the establishment.  The mainstream media loves to talk about things that fit with that agenda, and they don’t like to talk about things that suggest that there is something wrong with that agenda.

The following are 25 facts that the mainstream media doesn’t really want to talk about right now…

#1 The mainstream media doesn’t really want to talk about the fact that gun sales are absolutely skyrocketing in the aftermath of the horrific tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

#2 The mainstream media doesn’t really want to talk about the fact that disarming the population has resulted in some of the most horrific massacres in human history.  The following is from the Warrior Times

1911 – Turkey disarmed it’s citizens, and between 1915 – 1917 they murdered 1.5 million Armenians.

1929 – Russia disarmed it’s citizens, and between 1929 – 1953 they murdered 20 million Russians.

1935 – China disarmed it’s citizens, and between 1948 – 1952 they murdered 20 million Chinese.

1938 – Germany disarmed it’s citizens, and between 1939 – 1945 they murdered 16 million Jews.

1956 – Cambodia disarmed it’s citizens, and between 1975 – 1977 they murdered 1 million Educated people.

1964 – Guatamala disarmed it’s citizens, and between 1964 – 1981 they murdered 100,000 Mayan Indians.

1970 – Uganda disarmed it’s citizens, and between 1971 – 1979 they murdered 300,000 Christians.

#3 The mainstream media doesn’t really want to talk about the fact that a bill allowing for the “indefinite military detention of US citizens on American soil” was passed by the U.S. Senate on Friday.

#4 The mainstream media doesn’t really want to talk about the fact that volcanoes all along the Ring of Fire are roaring to life.  It seems like a new eruption is being reported every few days now.  In fact, a red alert has just been issued for a massive volcano that sits along the border between Chile and Argentina.

#5 The mainstream media doesn’t really want to talk about the fact that the use of genetically engineered seeds has caused on explosion of new “super weeds” that are incredibly difficult for farmers to kill.

#6 The mainstream media doesn’t really want to talk about the fact that renowned trends forecaster Gerald Celente is predicting a “financial disaster” in 2013.

#7 The mainstream media doesn’t really want to talk about the fact that it is easier to get into Harvard than it is to get a job as a flight attendant in America today.

#8 The mainstream media doesn’t really want to talk about the fact that nearly 400 TSA employees have been fired for stealing from travelers since 2003.

#9 The mainstream media doesn’t really want to talk about the fact that giant corporations such as Facebook are funneling gigantic amounts of money through offshore banking havens such as the Cayman Islands in an effort to avoid taxes.

#10 The mainstream media doesn’t really want to talk about the fact that the U.S. dollar is in danger of losing its status as the primary reserve currency of the world.

#11 The mainstream media doesn’t really want to talk about the fact that Barack Obama has gone off to vacation in Hawaii while the rest of the nation hopes for a fiscal cliff deal to get done.  Of course the mainstream media has to mention that he is on vacation because they always keep track of what the president does, but they are not making a big deal out of it because they love Obama.  And it sounds like Obama is having quite a good time on his little vacation

The president is expected to indulge in some of his favorite pastimes on the island where he was born and raised: golf, an expedition for the local treat “shave ice,” and an evening out with family and friends. He hit the links at the nearby Marine Corps base under sunny skies on Saturday afternoon.

#12 The mainstream media doesn’t really want to talk about the fact that there are government websites that give immigrants instructions about how to come over to our country and apply for welfare.

#13 The mainstream media doesn’t really want to talk about the fact that the U.S. economy is losing millions of jobs to nations where it is legal to pay workers slave labor wages.  The mainstream media is totally married to the one world economic agenda that their corporate owners make so much money from, and so they say nothing as a steady stream of businesses and jobs continue to leave the country.

#14 The mainstream media doesn’t really want to talk about the fact that the recent tax increase is causing large numbers of wealthy individuals to consider moving out of the state of California.

#15 The mainstream media doesn’t really want to talk about the fact that hunger and poverty are absolutely exploding in the United States at the same time that they are telling us that the economy is “recovering”.

#16 The mainstream media doesn’t really want to talk about the fact that North Korea now has a three-stage rocket with enough range to potentially hit the western United States.

#17 The mainstream media doesn’t really want to talk about the fact that the United States Postal Service is losing 25 million dollars a day and is on the verge of financial collapse.

#18 The mainstream media doesn’t really want to talk about the fact that our biggest oil supplier in the Middle East, Saudi Arabia, still kills people for changing religions.

#19 The mainstream media doesn’t really want to talk about the fact that political correctness is taking over America.  The truth is that the media does not see any problem with that at all.

#20 The mainstream media doesn’t really want to talk about the fact that nearly half a million employees of the federal government are making more than $100,000 a year.

#21 The mainstream media doesn’t really want to talk about the fact that the birth rate in the United States fallen to an all-time low.  The elite are actually absolutely thrilled that less babies are being born.

#22 The mainstream media doesn’t really want to talk about the fact that violent crime in the United States increased by 18 percent in 2011 and that many major U.S. cities are seeing violent crime totally spiral out of control.

#23 The mainstream media doesn’t really want to talk about the fact that Barack Obama received more than 99 percent of the vote in more than 100 precincts in Ohio on election day.

#24 The mainstream media doesn’t really want to talk about the fact that during the first four years of the Obama administration, the U.S. national debt grew by about as much as it did from the time that George Washington took office to the time that George W. Bush took office.

#25 The mainstream media doesn’t really want to talk about the fact that the Federal Reserve created the conditions for the last financial crisis and their mismanagement of the economy has now brought us to the verge of another horrible economic downturn.  According to the mainstream media, the Federal Reserve is “above politics” and should not be criticized.

    Michael,

    What is President Obama suppose to do when Congress is on legislative leave? The House went on Christmas vacation this last week. According to Article 1, Section 7,of the US Constitution, the House has the exclusive authority to create bills. (http://www.usconstitution.net/xconst_A1Sec7.html) For someone who professes to love and defend the Constitution Michael, you seem to be constantly missing the boat on this one. The President is limited in what he can do, especially when one body of the Legislative is recalcitrant to the Executive.

  • Alex

    The mainstream media also does not want to talk about the facts that for
    every gun crime committed there are hundreds of cases where a crime was
    prevented by armed citizens! (most of them home break ins) useconomicoutlook2013.com/

  • Jack Meoff

    I predict either a nuke or pandemic threat (ala Close Encounters of the Third Kind). When this happens, the gubmint will say that people will need to report to “Safety Camps” aka Fema Camps to get protection/vaccine/etc. The catch will be that nobody can bring any guns because it wouldn’t be ‘safe’. At that point, we are effectively rounded up and disarmed.

    • Piglet

      I wonder what the penalty will be for those of us who choose not to seek “protection” in the camps?

    The most violent country in Europe: Britain is also worse than South Africa and U.S.
    -MailOnLine (Dailymail dot co dot uk)

    Britain’s violent crime record is worse than any other country in the European union, it has been revealed.

    Official crime figures show the UK also has a worse rate for all types of violence than the U.S. and even South Africa – widely considered one of the world’s most dangerous countries.
    The figures comes on the day new Home Secretary Alan Johnson makes his first major speech on crime, promising to be tough on loutish behaviour.

    The Tories said Labour had presided over a decade of spiralling violence.

    In the decade following the party’s election in 1997, the number of recorded violent attacks soared by 77 per cent to 1.158million – or more than two every minute.

    The figures, compiled from reports released by the European Commission and United Nations, also show:
    The UK has the second highest overall crime rate in the EU.
    It has a higher homicide rate than most of our western European neighbours, including France, Germany, Italy and Spain.
    The UK has the fifth highest robbery rate in the EU.
    It has the fourth highest burglary rate and the highest absolute number of burglaries in the EU, with double the number of offences than recorded in Germany and France.
    But it is the naming of Britain as the most violent country in the EU that is most shocking. The analysis is based on the number of crimes per 100,000 residents.

    In the UK, there are 2,034 offences per 100,000 people, way ahead of second-placed Austria with a rate of 1,677.
    The U.S. has a violence rate of 466 crimes per 100,000 residents, Canada 935, Australia 92 and South Africa 1,609.

    The UK has over 4 times the violent crimes than does the US. Once again proving that disarming the people emboldens criminals and creates more crime.

        WarriorClass3 – you are such a nit. This article is about trusting mainstream media and then you take an example out of the “Dailywail” as use as truth. South Africa has 50 000 rapes per year. It is still the rape capital of the world. Unless of course, you dont see this as a violent crime. Those are the reported numbers – but the estimate is 1.5 million in total. South Africa has the highest murder rate for a country NOT at war. More people have died in SA through violence than those in Iraq at the peak of the war. How you can actually believe the nonsense you posted is beyond belief. Talk about sheeple.

        • WarriorClass3

          I understand that SA is more violent, but these were the figures reported. I posted the article to dispel the belief that gun control reduces violence when the reality is that it only increases the number of victims. I also expect that most of the readers of this blog know how to analyze news articles for themselves.

          • Hammerstrike

            South Africa have strict gun control, does it not?

    For No. 2 Japan and other OECD countries are not mentioned.

    Connect Nos. 1, 2, and 3 and you will see what is actually taking place in the States. I’ll give you a clue: guess who’s backing anti-gun control moves. Can’t guess? Here’s another clue: they sell arms to citizens AND the police, as well as the military. Still can’t figure it out? Here’s another: they make the U.S. the main arms dealer worldwide, with lots of profits earned from exports. Who do they sell to? See No. 18. Want to connect No. 18 to No. 10, too?

    Some more clues? They advertise on mainstream media, encouraging citizens to buy weapons because of No. 2. The same mainstream media will sensationalize news regarding guns, thus driving No. 1. This might also explain No. 15. How about No. 16 and anything that will justify strengthening the military?

    About No. 24, the main driver of the deficit are Bush era tax cuts and war costs from invading Iraq and Afghanistan? Want to connect that to Nos. 2 and 18?

    Finally, about No. 25 the Federal Reserve has been “above politics” from the start. It’s a private consortium of commercial banks. You mean didn’t know that a financial elite essentially runs the country? Want to connect that to Nos. 1, 2, 3, 18, and 24?

    • Birger_Skruddusvingen

      “You mean didn’t know that a financial elite essentially runs the country? Want to connect that to Nos. 1, 2, 3, 18, and 24?”

      I find it easy to “connect the dots”. But we’re not allowed to mention, let alone critisise, those who can’t be mentioned. You know, those whose hats makes Hewey’s, Dewey’s and Louie’s look large, warm and fluffy.

  • Nexusfast123

    Irrespective of the ‘facts’ and ‘assertions’ being made one of the flaws in the guns-prevent-tyranny concept is that it assumes that ALL the people with guns will be fighting against the tyrants, and not for them. You heavily armed neighbour may be a government support just as much as you oppose the government. Gun ownership by citizens can also mean that ‘local death squads’ are not armed by a government (this has happened in a number of countries). Overall the evidence throughout history seems unclear that gun ownership prevents tyranny, or for that matter a lack of guns causes tyranny.

      6 million is the ‘official figure’. Even that is allegedly not the accurate figure. Auschwitz deaths were reduced from 4 million down to 1 million but the 6 million figure stayed the same.

    Obama’s “health care” law requires insurance to pay for abortions and for a portion of it to go to paying for other people’s abortion, and if you don’t buy health insurance you pay a fine that goes to pay for abortions and unconstitutional and immoral wars. If you buy health insurance and/or pay taxes, therefore, you are funding the murder of children. If you believe in the Bible, you cannot buy health coverage or pay taxes. We are about to see who actually believes and obeys and who doesn’t.

    • Kritischer_Realist

      »Health care« is pure and utter SOCIALISM. It helps only to drag a community down, so that it »needs« more and more socialism.

    Taxes should only be paid for the needs of the country. But a country does NOT need medical aid. Such things are genuine personal needs and should be paid for by the people who personally need them.

    Long, long ago (well it sure seems that way), we had journalists whom we could trust, and who had real integrity. Edward R. Murrow and Walter Cronkite, to name a couple. Cronkite famously went to Vietnam in 1968 to file some reports for CBS News. He concluded, “America is losing this war”. Not a very popular thing to say, but he actually had the guts to tell the truth. No sugar coating here.

    Let’s see Scott Pelley do that. Or Diane Sawyer. Mike Wallace would do it, but he’s dead. Anyone from Fox News, CNN or MSNBC.

    You see, in the olden days, people had ethics. They weren’t afraid to tell the truth. Journalists today will broadcast lies to gain ratings. A good example is Bengali, Libya, September 11, 2012. Four people were killed in a terrorist attack, including an ambassador. For a couple weeks, it was covered up – the government blamed the attack on outrage from a YouTube movie about the prophet Mohammed. Yeah, right. Turns out it was a well planned terrorist attack.

    Cronkite or Murrow would have uncovered the truth in 48 hours. Man, how we need people like them today.
