    I recently saw an article

    that was titled "10 ways to keep him from cheating". Shouldn't it be "10 ways to prevent yourself from cheating"?

    Ever Heard Of Personal Space?!

    I despise the media, and news reporter people and etc... They barge into others buisness formally without their consent, and they think it's neccessary to invade others personal boundaries! Personally, I think they're ridiculous. I watched this one thing on the computer a while...

    What A Change It's Been

    When I was younger, the media seemed to be a great source of information.  It seemed to start turning back in the late 70's when reporters started really trying to capture the proverbial prize of the Pulitzer.  That's when I started seeing corporate America taking over...

    Of course they are. Someone has to pay the

    journalists, reporters, directors etc. Of course they are going to be trying to further the agenda and viewpoints of those that pay them.

    This below is from a great article.

    ...Let me begin by stating that all in the world is not as you have been told. The old saying that "truth is stranger than fiction" couldn't be more accurate, for we have been deceived on such a grand scale that most would have a difficult time in comprehending the full extent...

    Just Doing My Duty

    The guy holding the banner just wants the media to present what's happening in Myanmar, and I'm doing my best spreading it. It looks like the media ignores the crimes when Muslims are the ones being murdered, I wonder what would have happened if it was the opposite? I bet you...

    In Case You Are Interested In Knowing

    I never listen to the news or watch it and I never follow the media because the news/media are all hearsay, and exaggerated, and too negative. The only time I will ever consider watching the news is if it's something urgent such as, an incident like 9/11, or a weather emergency...

    Don't Know What To Believe

    The main stream media is such a joke. You can never know what to belive any more. They seem to want to keep the American people in the dark about everything or just feed us a bunch of lies hoping we will believe them. Of course I know most people will and won't think twice about...

    The media is SO CORRUPT!

    I usually don't trust anyone who writes in caps BUT IT'S A SERIOUS ISSUE! It's shameful that news organizations lack the content necessary to inform the citizens. Substance is second to ratings. Part of it is the American way of sensationalizing everything and short attention...

    A Media Bias Example

    So, I Have Morals.

    I'm not a christian, but I still have morals. I'm agnostic. My family hates me for it because my mom looked it up on the internet and thinks I'm some sort of devil worshiper. Now, she won't let me go out because she thinks I'm going to be a prostitute or something. Just because I...

    I never fully understood how corrupt the media system actually is! It's terrible. There is tons of literature on the biased media; I will link it at the end of this. Let's start with what news is. Journalism originally was meant to investigate current issues and report the facts...

    The only use for the media now is really to fool people. If it isn't weather, its probably laced with lies.

    Corrupted Media

    If the media is corrupt, then there's a reason behind it. I personally think, the media wants the truth and tries delivering nothing but the truth.

    They Only Want Your Money

    Corporations want you to buy their stuff so they can get rich and have the power and you can stay poor and weak. And that's pretty much the gist of it.

    The first step in fixing any problem is recognising there is one. We've fuelled the beast, known as capitalism with our apathy, and it's greed has slowly seeped into every aspect of our lives, from education, warfare, laws and politics. Gradually, everything has become about, or...

    My Take On The Characters At Fox News

    I keep trying to listen to other news sources so as to get a balanced, or an objective idea of what is going on in the world, and especially what is happening in the USA. There is not one…..I repeat NOT ONE that is truly objective in their reporting of, and commenting on, world...
