In response to CatfishHunter's comment:
Come on Wozzy.
Don't equate phony news with a FEMA Human Roundup Theory.
I don't trust ANY news source for ANYTHING. They are all pandering for a slice of the audience pie. Nancy Grace? My wife had her on one night and I swear every sentence was "Tot Mom" this, "Tot Mom" that. I said to my wife, I bet she trademarked the phrase. Sure enough - she did. There is no bigger phony on cable than her.
Here's my viewing in total:
(2) Nat Geo Wild
News? As Paul Simon sang "I get the news I need from the weather report ..."
So there's nothing "conspiratorial" about the news, a most honorable profession, being as fake as Duck Dynasty?
If I had framed it the opposite way and had simply said all the major news outlets are owned by the same multinational companies, of which the same 1% of the population sat at the heads of these companies you would have called me a conspiracy loon again.
But when I show you footage of CNN faking war stories, or video of the taliban supposedly beheading Americans or gassing cute little puppies or endless chatter about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq/Iran/Syria that encourages young men to join the service to go fight for freedom or in the case of this faked CNN story, feel OK about sending billions of dollars in financial aid to Israel, a country that simply doesn't need it, you just shrug it off.
So you don't believe in conspiracies, but when given a hundred examples like this one, Iran/Contra, etc etc you just write it off to one bad apple ruining the lot, a blip on the radar?
People are funny; they'll believe in ghosts, aliens, bigfoot, lochness monsters, angels, miracles, chupacabra, magic bullets, lone assassins, building number 7 at the World Trade Center falling on it's own without having been touched by a plane and a god in the sky who sits in judgement of them but the one thing they won't believe in is that another human could pull the wool over their eyes, a conspiracy of men.
Truly as Mark Twain once said, "it is easier to fool a man than convince him he has been fooled."
