For decades, the mainstream media in the United States was accustomed to being
able to tell the American people what to think. Unfortunately for them, a whole
lot of Americans are starting to break free from that paradigm and think for
themselves. A Gallup survey from earlier this year found that 60 percent of all
Americans "have little or no trust" in the mainstream media. More people than
ever are realizing that the mainstream media is giving them a very distorted
version of "the truth" and they are increasingly seeking out alternative sources
of information.

In the United States today, just six giant media corporations control the
mainstream media. Those giant media corporations own television networks, cable
channels, movie studios, radio stations, newspapers, magazines, publishing
houses, music labels and even many prominent websites. But now thanks to the
Internet the mainstream media no longer has a complete monopoly on the news. In
recent years the "alternative media" has exploded in popularity. People want to
hear about the things that the corporate media doesn't really want to talk
about. They want to hear news that is not filtered by corporate bosses and
government censors. They want "the truth" and they know that they are not
getting it from the mainstream media.


We are watching a media revolution happen, and many in the mainstream media are
totally freaking out about it. In fact, some in the mainstream media have even
begun publishing articles that mock the American people for not trusting them.

For example, a recent CNN article entitled "Still `paranoid' after all these
years" portrayed Americans that don't trust the media as paranoid conspiracy
theorists that have left rationality behind…

Ever have the feeling you're being lied to by the news media, the authorities,
the corporate world? That somebody — or something — is out to get you? You're
not alone.
Welcome to 21st-century America.

Look around. Trust is hitting historic lows. Just a third of Americans have a
favorable view of the federal government, a decline of 31% since 2002, according
to the Pew Center for People and the Press. Gallup has Congress' approval rating
is in the low 20s, after nearing single digits last summer. And the news media
aren't much better off.

`Negative opinions about the performance of news organizations now equal or
surpass all-time highs on nine of 12 core measures the Pew Research Center has
been tracking since 1985,' a Pew report said.

The article goes on to make it sound like it is very irrational not to trust the
media, but in this day and age it is imperative that we all learn to think for
ourselves. Blindly trusting someone else to do your thinking for you is very
dangerous.

Anyone that does not acknowledge that the mainstream media has an agenda is not
being honest with themselves. The mainstream media presents a view of the world
that is very favorable to their big corporate owners and the big corporations
that spend billions of dollars to advertise on their networks. The mainstream
media is the mouthpiece of the establishment, and the worldview being pushed on
the big networks is going to be consistent with the economic, financial,
political and social goals of the establishment. The mainstream media loves to
talk about things that fit with that agenda, and they don't like to talk about
things that suggest that there is something wrong with that agenda.

does, but they are not making a big deal out of it because they love Obama. And
it sounds like Obama is having quite a good time on his little vacation…

The president is expected to indulge in some of his favorite pastimes on the
