Iraq violence, unrest and racial hatred in the West Bank, guns out of control in our fair City of T dot, a bungled US government response to the apparently worst natural disaster in its history. The list goes on. The news media won't stop forcing apocalyptic drivel down the public's throat, because that's what's sensational, and that's what keeps the public cowed in a perpetual state of fear.
In response to this, We, the Staff (TM) believe an outlet like blogs could shift the way the public sees the world. Currently, they are not controlled by any real, cohesive governing power. If left unmolested, truthful, independent and multitudinous, blog-based news sources could allow members of the public to form their own, intelligent ideas of what's going on in the world around them.
This could dispel the falsehoods and sensational ratings grabs put forth by mainstream media. If the public relied more on itself for knowing what was really going on in the world, could the real truth be coaxed out a little more? Or, is it only a matter of time before mainstream media realizes what power lies in this relatively new outlet, and start trying to assimilate it and perpetuate what's "marketable", id est more death & destruction.
Okay, We're done for now.
