News? Yeah, Right

I haven't watched TV in years. Up at the farm, I see a little, because it's on, and I did make a point, about three years ago, of catching every episode of 'Murder In Small Town X', but that's about it. Lately, I've been even more glad I don't watch TV, especially for my news gathering. Frankly, I've never really trusted the news (and yes, that makes me sound like a paranoid conspiracy nut, which isn't too far from the truth), but it has become simply ridiculous.

Do me a favour. Read this article in the New York Times. The short version: government produced and scripted segments, meant to blend seamlessly into local news shows; blatant propaganda. It seems to be even more pervasive than you'd imagine.

Scary stuff. On the other hand, this is another major news media outlet. So who knows? I say fuck them all, support anarchy and true laissez-faire capitalism.
