A Real Reporter Rants

See liz_marcs' article about reporting, truth, history, and 9/11 lies - I Remember Townsend....

All I can say is "I agree".

You see, I thought I wanted to be a journalist once upon a time. But I'm an introvert, and don't like asking strangers questions. But I have done the kind of digging, listening, and analysing that an investigative reporter does. Not often, but the skill has served me well in other fields.

To be a real reporter, IMO, means having the chutzpah, and the ethics, to get it right - not to settle for the propaganda sheet, but compare the sources, filter out the BS, and get the real story. The big media companies are too wrapped up in profits and politician's pockets to do that anymore.

So don't swallow the propaganda and the lies. It just shows that the PTB think we're stupid and forgetful. They're wrong.

Seen the cover article in Silicon Valley Metro this week? Probbaly nothing there you haven't heard before, but having it on every street corner in the Valley plus that easily accessible online is . . . and the plug therein for the book, and the two ads for the movie.
