n the past year or so, we’ve seen several mass media outlets “reporting” on the popularity of conspiracy theories and of alternative news. However, in every case, the resulting article is not an objective report on a growing phenomenon but an all-out hit piece, bashing those who dare questioning the “official story” dictated by mass media with strong words and specific labels.

A recent article published on CNN entitled Still ‘paranoid’ after all these years does a great job at equating all those who use critical thinking before guzzling down the toxic drink that is mass media with all kinds of crazy. The word “paranoid” is used about ten times in the article as well as the words “panic”, “wingnut”, “lunatic”, “dupes”, “derangement”, “irrational”, “extremism”, “idiot”, “fearful” and “insecurity”.

Another way the article places the label of “crazy” on people who think outside of the TV box is by mixing ridiculous theories with those that are more credible in order to lump them together and to discredit everything that is not the “official story”. Yet another classic technique is to associate those who seek the truth with racism, terrorism and other scary -isms. A fourth way to discredit non-mainstream information is to equate those who write about alternative news and conspiracies as money-hungry crackpots. All of these techniques are in this CNN article.

That's ok. The Growing Number of People That Question Mass Media bash CNN. CNN is said to be "in the bag" for Obama and has savaged his opponents. The unattractive combination of extreme bias, Obama boosterism, and attacks on anyone to the right of Pelosi make one wonder why anyone other than an extreme liberal would watch CNN.bleh.gif

About 118million votes for president had been tallied by Wednesday morning - a 10 percent drop from the 131million who cast ballots four years ago. Hopefully that's 10% who have woken up to the reality of US Captured Government.

Quote:From 2008* http://www.infoplease.com/ipa/A0781453.html
Voting-age population 231,229,580

Voter turnout 132,618,580* *Source 2008 election results: http://elections.gmu.edu/Turnout_2008G.html.

Turnout of voting-age population (percent)56.8%

So if you include the bigger population for 2012, you have either Voters disenfranchised, Voter Apathy or more citizens don't vote because they know the US election is a fraudulent selection by the POO. I hope it is the latter.

“Presidents are selected, not elected.”

― Franklin D. Roosevelt

He wasn't a poser or anything. Little known fact I'll reveal here. I worked with a guy who's dad was friends with the doctor who autopsied FDR. It was a self inflicted gunshot wound to the head in the WH that killed him.
I have no reason to doubt that.

That was a popular rumor at the time and it was a closed casket funeral which fueled the fire. He officially died of a brain hemorrhage but it is possible the hemorrhage was self inflicted.

That statement is incorrect. The MSM is always left.

The major difference between CNN and the National Inquirer is more people link to "news" from CNN to support their position. I have no idea why, the two organizations are similar in accuracy.

That's accurate for European media for sure. It is quite funny to observe actually. I have a bachelor of media degree acquired here in Finland, a country proud of their education and admired world wide for the education system. But regardless of that sort of shït, my American husband (JayRodney) kinda freaked out over how different the news were presented over here compared to the US.

And we're the same people ffs.
