Obama: We’re going to have to change how the media reports?
How do you feel about Obama wanting to turn MSM into more of propaganda machine than it is already?
If that is true, then we have more in common with Russia and state run media and other what should be privately run businesses.
The difference between MSM and News is that the news doesn't make conclusions on events. They just give the information on the events they report.
Unfortunately, too many people digest the MSM which if it were a food would be minimal protein, and filled with Fat and Sugar? The MSM and the daily diet of Americans is the same, and both are bad for our health. One destroys brain cells, and the other destroys the body.
Sorry, the latter statement is my conjecture showing, but both are bad for us. We have had an increasing diet of both of these since Cable TV News was created.
I suspect that having little opposition, the MSM has slowly but surely increased their opinions at the expense of the facts.
Today, even the news headlines are a conclusion and a guide as to the outcome of the story. This is suggested by the conclusionary adjectives that tip the scale away from being objective, factual and accurate.
Obama will be gone soon but the MSM paradigm will continue.
I don't like it, so I haven't watched Cable News or TV broadcast News in over a decade.
When he said "We’re going to have to change how the media reports." I wonder just what he means, who is "we" and how do "we" change "how the media reports?"Even more worrisome who's HE want to decide how the media reports?lol The UN?
When obama says "we" you can bet it is not "us".
PhoenixV, Thank You
In 2008, he said he would change America, and he did it. He just didn't say which way he would change it. As it turns out, it was from Bad to Worse. And that is an achievement as we just hit the bottom, and cratered.
What obama actually said was that he wanted more "curation", which means "selecting" or "picking" of what could and could not be read.
Now this from a prez that has blocked more freedom of information requests than any other president. The same prez that told us how great his "Affordable Healthcare Act" was.
And he wants a panel that's going to select and pick what is being viewed by me?
I'd believe he'd be as open and honest with the choices like hillary was with her emails, which were continually deleted after being subpoenaed.
How crazy can america get?
Well, looking at the presidential race, as crazy as any insane asylum.
Is it possible that obamama could get his way?
Wel, the government spies on everyone - reads emails, listens in on phone conversations, sets up false cell towers to get into people cell phones, sells guns to drug cartels and politically sways investigations into politicians corruption.
So, right now, and looking at a possible hillary killory clinton getting into the W.H., I'd say yeah, I'd say censorship is right around the corner.
Just look at the mass media - playing up the sexcapades being charged against Trump and then ignoring all the conniving and mishandling of info by the democrats and hillary.
I'm more concerned with the democratic process being compromised daily than what Trump did with his hands or other parts of his body. If billy clinton can get away with his sexcapades, give the same pass to Trump.
I feel about obamama the same as I did 8 years ago - he's a communist marxist who hates america and white people. He confirms that every time he talks.
And americans, if they are as dumb as rocks as they appear to be in this election, then they probably would have no problem with the government censoring what they read.
Because, heaven forbid that they would be offended by what someone wrote and have to go to the safe room, or stall, in the ladies bathroom.

I listened to a australian authour give a speech within the last 24 hours. While I found his monotone voice making me want to walk away a few things he said stuck with me. Surprisingly he and I shared a similar outlook on a number of issues, which was comforting to me to see that I am not alone in...

We are constantly being bombarded by breaking news from both sides of the political spectrum. It's not just a matter of presenting the news, but it's also the talking heads that follow the breaking news events. They are presented as experts, when in reality, they don't have any more of a clue...

When you as media obstruct and not just report ?When you sensationalize and create false media ?When you constantly attack and defame ?When you ignore real media issues ?When you journalize and editorialize instead of report ?You become the enemy of the people .

At this moment if you are watching CNN, they are showing over 10,000 people marching and protesting about Trump. If you watch Fox New, they are talking about all the great accomplishments Trump has done while being in the UK. And in the lower right corner of the screen, barely visible...
