    Absolutely, no doubt about it.

    Over the years the Media has decided they need to put some spin on most everything they report.  They tend to only show news from one side of the story, the side they think is right.

    Some media outlets have been caught editing videos to make the information they report even more damaging to some individuals.

    The days of straight news reporting with no slant or spin are gone forever.

      So true. It is getting to the point where I have to change the channel or hit delete online. It's getting too tiresome to filter out all the bias and even outright lies---especially since what is left may not amount to much.

      Mike, you don;t have to be 100 years old like you (just kidding) to see what has happened to the main stream media. Just look at this http://www.ronpaullibertyreport.com/upl … iki-tw.jpg

      Tsad - That link pretty well tells the story doesn't it?  I'm glad that half the population of this country was able to sort out the BS from the facts.

      Mike is right,
      Whether you call it propaganda, brainwashing, or serving up "Kool Aid" - Mike is right.

    Definitely yes!  Things like "Common Core" is helping by not allowing students to question authority. Mainstream Media is owned by the same secret society owning "The Federal Reserve Bank" that prints our money then loans it to the US government who pays interest on what it borrows and instructed George "Dubya" to institute the Common Core teaching practice.  In my 71 years I've observed schooling deny open discussions except when they favor "the power that we have allowed to be" because we do not even read, not to mention study, the Constitution to see We The People has power to change government.  HubPages will not allow http://hubpages.com/politics/HOW-TO-GOV … TUTIONALLY online because it shows us many of the things use can change in government for the same reason.
