It's all been sold out. I have been sold out. It's been this way for a long time now, actually. Truth gives way to sensationalism, true journalism to the almighty dollar, and morals lose value when compared to power. Who cares about the personal triumphs of the individual? Or of the difference that the unnamed hero makes? Despite what people think of the movie, you won’t be seeing George Bailey anytime soon. The sad truth is that there’s more money in all of today’s failures and tragedies than in its triumphs. Every day, you turn on the radio or TV and you hear about all that's wrong with the world. If one were to take their word for it, there isn’t a single salvageable soul in the whole of the human race. In the morning, you get up, turn on the radio, and hear of all the ravages and plagues mankind has sent upon itself. You leave home, bound for work, with feelings of hate and dispar, and with no outlet for these negative emotions. Some continue on like this, simply carrying this baggage with them everywhere they go. Others find they can no longer take it and snap. Many more find solace in the honey-sweat words of those who would crown themselves leaders, telling us to go to war with those who have defiled us, so that we may take out our base emotions on someone we have never met or possibly even heard of. The farther removed the person is, the less human the person seems, and it becomes easier to blindly hate. This is our existence; blindly following our leaders, not bothering ourselves with where we may be headed, so long as he can extinguish our pitiful feelings of anguish that is forced upon us. But there is still a light at the end of this long, dark tunnel; many beacons of hope shining in the night. You find it by going to the Salvation Army, or shelters for the homeless. People who give away their time freely, a grand taboo in today’s time-orientated society where every second we waste is money lost. Though each person’s contribution is small, the combined force of all the individuals working for a better tomorrow creates more positive energy than the worst dictator can quell. We have only to wake up and realize it. So support your local news stations. Give money to the local public TV news stations. Just remind them that if they forget about the traits that make us all human, you will no longer back their endeavors.
Kompressor says - Destroy Mass Media
sorry but thats too long. im not reading it. can you give a bref description of it?
*sigh* Perhaps this would be better suited for the pub.
Duh the media screwed you.
The media tells you stuff to influence your thinking...they tilt (aka 'spin') the stories to get you to think what they want you to think. Thats why I never trust news from just one source...
I take what n0e says way too seriously

Peeping TomSupport independant media. Watch provocative documentary films.
We all know that movie was made in the sole intention to hurt Bush. Don't deny it. I would call that movie largely left wing/conspiracy.
It is.....and large amounts of it are not the truth aka lies....Moore just hates Bush for attention....he demonizes the president for lieing about WMD's, and refuses to believe otherwise....
or he's partially right, wich is the case. (80% of what he says is complete bullshit tho.)
btw, nice slut in your avatar nitestryker.
