It’s Time to Boycott Mainstream Media

Mainstream media in the United States has always tried to dictate how we should think and sway us to believe that their word is the last. Now, they have pushed a lot of us over the edge!

It seems that every mainstream media outlet in this country is on the Obama payroll; they’ve leaned so far left that they are about to tip over and we have the power to make them fall…or at least hurt.

If you are like me and many others I know you are sick of this belittlement of our intellect and ready to hit back!

Now is the time to cancel hard copy (newspapers, magazines etc.) of all outlets who practice this one sided approach to journalism. If they have paid website subscriptions and you are a subscriber cancel it. If you visit online media sites that are free and want to keep doing that, don’t click on any ads. Boycott any advertisers who buy time on television during news programming. NPR radio is as big a violator of our rights to fair and unbiased reporting as anyone and if you donate money during their fund drives don’t do it next time.

Apparently, the only way that we can fight back is to hit them where it hurts…the money!

I hope you will join me in this fight and spread the word as well as apply some of the suggestions I’ve made. If you blog then write about who you feel about their practices and encourage others to write and boycott too.

If they start seeing their profits beginning to dwindle perhaps they will realize that if they want to earn our trust and keep it they will have to learn to practice responsible journalism!

The Selling Out of American Media

The American media, in all of its forms, has become a farce. It’s not a knew plague of untruth and injustice except that the scale of abuse. of their responsibility has spread to seemingly infect every outlet.

What ever happened to reporting the facts?

Why must they inflect their opinions on us so vehemently?

Are we not entitled to receive the facts, without prejudice, so that we may develop our on opinions based on those facts?

Never has the abuse of “freedom of the press” been so obviously abused as in this year, 2008, in the reporting of candidates for the presidency of the United States. A most important decision in these volatile times and we are left to form our opinions based on the opinions on media personalities who are only out to draw attention to themselves; to serve their own agendas.

These days every news outlet, be it newspaper or otherwise should be required to have included in their title, “All Opinion All the Time.”

You would think that in a time when citizen’s opinions of the media are already that they are, for the most part, incompetent that they would be working to improve their image.

Their blatant abuse of the freedoms given the by our constitution is both a travesty and letdown.

All of American media has been reduced to being worthy of grocery store checkout isles!
