Texas Hit By Unprecedented Hypestorms!

The same people who were hyping unprecedented drought in Texas a few days ago, are now hyping unprecedented rain.

As always, it is complete BS. Houston has had much heavier rainfall in the past.

Defenders of the status quo are always stronger than reformers seeking change, 
UNTIL the status quo self-destructs from its own corruption, and the reformers are free to build on its ashes.

Chris Hedges:

 

It is the cult of self that is killing the United States. This cult has within it the classic traits of psychopaths: superficial charm, grandiosity and self-importance ; a need for constant stimulation; a penchant for lying, deception and manipulation; and the incapacity for remorse or guilt.
 
No real journalist makes $5 million a year... Those in power fear and dislike real journalists.
 
We are captivated by the hollow stagecraft of political theater as we are ruthlessly stripped of power. It is smoke and mirrors, tricks and con games, and the purpose behind it is deception.

When it comes to news reporting, "HISTORIC" often equals HYSTERICAL.

This caught my eye this week:

Mexico – Historic snowfall in the Santuarios

The "Historic" history only goes back 30 years.

The myopic don't know that that Santa Anna's Mexican army marched through snow to attack the Alamo in March, 1836.

SHOCK REPORT: AP willingly cooperated with Nazis...

When Adolf Hitler’s National Socialists rose to power in 1933, all international news agencies but the US-based AP were forced to leave Germany. The AP continued to operate in the Third Reich until 1941, when the United States joined World War II.

According to German historian Harriet Scharnberg, the world’s biggest news agency was only allowed to remain in Germany because it signed a deal with the regime.

 

Just like CNN did to stay in Baghdad

POLL: Vast majority of Americans don't trust media...

Just 6 percent of people say they have a lot of confidence in the media, putting the news industry about equal to Congress and well below the public's view of other institutions. In this presidential campaign year, Democrats were more likely to trust the news media than Republicans or independents.

News Websites Battle Faltering Ad Revenue...

Online publishers have faced numerous financial challenges in recent years, including automated advertising and ad-blocking tools. But now, there is a realization that something more profound has happened: The transition from an Internet of websites to an Internet of mobile apps and social platforms, and Facebook in particular, is no longer coming — it is here.

 

85% of online ad revenue to FACEBOOKGOOGLE...

How does the mass media (including social media) control people?

 

The main problem is the form not the content. Media addiction shapes the way people think.

 

For a start, it takes-up attention for a large and increasing proportion of the day. It demands continuous availability - so that we must always be rapidly/ instantly contactable via media, and must always answer the call of media (it is socially unacceptable not to answer a call, to ignore unwanted messages etc).

 

The attention is grabbed, manipulated, switched - again and again, thousands of times a day 

 

A mind-set is created by the mass'social media which believes and expects a world without organisation, a world without control, a world without purpose, a world without blame - a world where 'stuff just happens'...

And beyond this is that phenomena are presented as 'dots' but the 'dots' are not connected honestly or truthfully to see what they may imply.
