Have you been following the Wikileaks revelations? Leaked emails have confirmed what many Americans already suspected: reporters and news executives throughout the “mainstream media” have gone far beyond merely having a political bias. Abandoning all semblance of journalistic integrity they are working directly with politicians behind the scenes to manipulate the information American voters need to make informed decisions. The scandal has been slowing rising to the surface for months, but the latest Wikileaks blew the lid off. Click the links below to see how the rot has been uncovered at major news organizations such as:
Except for the first link above, which is about an older revelation, all of those links lead directly to the relevant emails at Wikileaks. If you don’t recognize the names in the emails, I suggest you Google them. Then read for yourself these emails that expose a reporter at The Atlantic who agrees to insert specific words in an upcoming article in return for an early look at a future Hillary Clinton speech, a CNN contributor (now Democratic National Convention Chairperson) who leaks CNN Town Hall questions in advance to Hillary Clinton’s staff, a New York Times reporter and Clinton staffer who coordinate attacks on Donald Trump, a Politico reporter who allows Clinton’s campaign director to review the entire text of a news report to suggest changes, Clinton staffers who appear to control the timing of Associated Press news releases, and a CNBC panelist asking Clinton’s campaign director to suggest questions for Donald Trump in an upcoming interview.
I don’t know why these so-called “journalists” all seem to be supporting Hillary Clinton, and I don’t care. I’d be equally outraged if this kind of corruption came to light with Trump staffers. This is not about who the media supports. This is about rigging the entire American political system. It’s about robbing us of our right to chose government representatives based on facts. It’s about fraud, flat out, and it borders on treason as far as I’m concerned.
Obviously, we no longer have a mainstream news media which simply “leans” left. We have a “fourth estate” that actively and intentionally functions as a “fifth column” propaganda machine with the goal of brainwashing the American people. But what can we do?
We can hit the mainstream media where it hurts, in their pocketbooks, that’s what we can do. Every time you buy one of their papers, subscribe to one of their websites, or pay for their content on your television screen, you’re paying them to lie to you. So stop doing that.
Switch off. Unplug. Cut the cable. Ditch the dish. And do it now, while you’re still angry about it.
I’m not saying bury your head in the sand. Now more than ever Americans need to know what’s really going on. Fortunately, there are still news sources online where you can get real news for free.
To help you with that, I’ve assembled a short list of original news sources and source aggregators which, as far as I know, are still behaving honestly. I’m not saying they don’t have a bias. I’m saying their bias is obvious, and to my knowledge they’re not actively colluding with politicians or the government to weave a fabric of outright lies and distortion. Some of these sources lean right; some lean left. I think it’s important to read them all to keep the information balanced. I scan them often. And again, all of them are free.
If you get your news here you’ll be pushing back on the propaganda, improving the accuracy of what you’re told, and saving money all at once. What’s not to love about that?
As for entertainment without network or cable programming, there’s always Netflix and Amazon Prime, both of which are cheaper than most cable plans. I subscribe to both, and have a surplus of excellent movies and television programming available at all times.
So, here are my first few suggestions for free, uncorrupted news sources. This batch leans right, but none of them seem to be in bed with the Republican Party (they often criticize GOP leaders, for example, and none are openly fond of Trump):
These are left leaning, but not full out socialists, and I have seen no sign on the sites or in Wikileaks that they’re actively helping Clinton get elected:
Here are a couple of the better known polling sites where you can get raw facts without any spin:
And here’s a concept: learn about American foreign policy from foreigners!
Everyone will find something they don’t like on this list, and that’s okay. Don’t stop here. Look around the Internet and create your own list. By all means, approach all news sources with skepticism. But whatever you do, stop supporting the corrupt propagandists of the mainstream media who have been caught red handed perverting America’s political process.
