Since the advent of the low hanging fruit that is COVID 19, I have noticed how blatantly the media decides what we should be afraid of from day to day.

It would seem all the big deal, super scary stuff has completely ceased since the virus..

Anyone else wonder what the big media scares would be if COVID didn't exist? What would the hot topic stories be?

What would the large font headlines read? What would the coffee shop talk be?

I don't listen to the mainstream media whatsoever. Unfortunately a huge number of people apparently believe much or all of what they hear on the TV. Scary !

Apparently the Iranians have gone into hibernation and Kimjung-whatever is MIA and the "isil's"have taken a six month siesta.

"The trouble with the media is that it seems unable to distinguish between the end of the world and a bicycle accident"

-George Bernard Shaw


The longer I live the more I see how everything is skewed, everything has a slant...and its all blown out of proportion. This COVID thing is the perfect example. Not negating the severity of the virus, but seeing what is not deemed news any more is the telling part of the whole deal. The virus isn't affecting my life at all, neither are the riots....does the fact that these things are in the media constantly mean that all the other stuff wasn't actually that important?

Am thinking of going news free for a while, not that I get terribly bent out of shape over headlines already, but it might be a nice break.

There are more terrorists and acts of terrorism in the US now then there has been at any other time in our entire history. antifa and blm are terrorists organizations and have done well over a billion dollars in damage in the last few months. The liberal news media is on the same anti-American side and promotes the myth that the terrorists are peaceful protesters.

What TRUMP shoul do is sign an order saying the Democratic Party is designated as a terrorost group and starting rounding all the Democrats up. That would solve the problem

Good post, Hutchy!

Meanwhile in Beirut....

But it is interesting how once that crack in the door is pushed open an entirely different world emerges. Most people never bother to make that push, and when you point out what's on the other side they look away in anger....at you.
