How media is killing us.

There are many ways we can stem global warming, but it’s counter to the real intent behind “renewable” energy. I’m committed to sharing what will work.

This article, in Common Dreams illuminates why so much of what I’m writing and posting seems to contradict the “Status Quo” media created “Reality”

Legendary broadcast journalist Bill Moyers has said:

“We’ve got to get alternative content out there to people, or this country’s going to die of too many lies.”

Moyers was asked what the corporate media means for our democracy:

“It means that virtually everything the average person sees or hears, outside of their own personal communications, is determined by the interests of private, unaccountable executives and investors whose primary goal is increasing profits and raising the share prices. More insidiously, this small group of elites determines what ordinary people do not see or hear. In-depth coverage of anything, let alone the problems real people face day-to-day, is as scarce as sex, violence, and voyeurism are pervasive.”

“So if we need to know what is happening, and Big Media won’t tell us; if we need to know why it matters, and Big Media won’t tell us; if we need to know what to do about it, and Big Media won’t tell us, it’s clear what we have to do. We have to tell the story ourselves.”

That’s what we are trying to do here—tell the story ourselves. Every day we work to tell you what is happening; why it matters, and what to do about it.

“I came upon Common Dreams a long time ago, found that Common Dreams was editing the world in a way that did not deny me what I needed to know, but guided me toward what I wanted to know. Common Dreams has done a brilliant job of creating an editorial product that takes so much good material, and brings it together in one place,” said Moyers.
