Question-Blind Media & Thirsting Souls

Nullinna-7999

Millions of people believe what they read and hear in the media. These people are propagandized. The mainstream media, msm, conveys many facts, but little information and no essential truths. It supplies disinformation to strengthen belief in the prevailing system of power based on money, and sprinkles inconsequential facts and information to sell media products and attract advertisers

The msm never, ever, asks key questions, and, consequently, can never deliver key answers.

Let’s take the case of poisoning 100.000 people with contaminated water from the Flint River. We are told that the city switched to this sludge instead of the fresh, but somewhat more expensive water, from Lake Huron, to save money. We are not told (the media doesn’t ask) why the city had to ”save” money. No one asked what priorities were considered more important than fresh water? A few sources outside the msm did mention that the city’s finances were hurting because tax-breaks were given to the super wealthy. But not even these sources asked why the super wealthy were given tax-breaks.

Why were 100.000 people forced to drink, wash and cook in poisoned water so that a few hundred vulgarly wealthy people could get even more money? Surely the price of caviar hadn’t gone up so drastically. Had the nannies, chauffeurs and gardeners demanded higher wages?

Wouldn’t it be as refreshing as a drink of pure spring water to hear a journalist ask,
”Why were 100.000 people forced to drink, wash and cook in poisoned water so that a few hundred wealthy people could get even more money?”

Of course it would be refreshing, but it’s not going to happen. The flock wont even think about it. They’ll drink their sugared, carbonated and chemically contaminated water, bury their heads in the msm and whine.
All the way to the slaughter.

    Dear-est Joel! That choice of wording is a reflection of my gratitude for what you do, for your eloquence and – even more – for what you hanker for.
    Thanks, simply!

    Still, I am your hawk-eye in the word world. I believe there is an apostrophe missing: The flock wont even think about it.

      Thanks, Bosse.
      The wont is intentional. I’ve jumped on the bandwagon of a growing tendency to leave out the apostrophe. It’s not my fault that the dictionaries, as usual, are somewhat behind in recording actual usage.
