Eye opener for March 11, 2024: Do main stream reporters actually report?

How is it that we have so many corrupt or inept leaders today, but none of this is initially reported on Main Stream Media news sources? As I pointed out in a previous post, the immigrant crisis we face today was reported on months ago.

I think I first heard about 4 million people heading towards the southern border of the United States of America back in September or October of 2023. None of this was reported on CNN or MSNBC, but it was hard to miss as was evidenced by the report done by independent journalists. So, if Youtubers, with much smaller budgets) can find 4 million people walking through Mexico, you would think CNN and MSNBC (with their mega budgets) would be able to find them. It's almost as if they're intentionally ignoring one of the most impactful stories of the day. It's as if, yet another so called conspiracy theory is turning out to be an actual conspiracy. Why else would the U.S. Government that surveils the entire planet as well as its own people not know about the inevitable arrival of 4 million people to our border? This is even less likely than CNN and MSNBC not knowing about the problem.

This is why the title of this post questions whether main stream media reporters actually do reporting. It's more of a rhetorical question because, in my opinion the answer is a resounding "NO". How else could one account for the illegal, immoral and conflicting economic activity of our current president. At this point, Joe Biden's treasonous behavior not only seems more possible or even more probable, but more extensive than even conspiracy theorists imagined it to be. Like all presidents (at least since WWII), Joe Biden is a war criminal (at least on the verge of becoming one), but he's also a gangster who's resorted to tactics like extortion by threatening Ukraine unless they fired the prosecutor going after the Ukrainian company at which his son worked. And, while he's not alone and definitely not the cause of this, just look at how many obvious ways there are today for companies to screw you out of your wealth and your kids inheritance: Exorbitant debt so you can afford food that has gone up by 50, 60, 100, 200 percent when inflation has gone up by no more than 10%; Ignoring the lead-poisones water in Flint Michigan, ignoring the toxic chemical in Palestine Ohio, ignoring the people of Maui Hawaii, ignoring corporations that outbid normal home owners to the point that housing is unaffordable. These are all issues that only a strong Government can control, yet none of them have been properly addressed by the Government of the richest country the planet has ever known. And, if you doubt that America is the richest country to ever exist, just look at it's debt. You can't owe 34 trillion dollars being anything but the richest country to ever exist. Mathematicians will soon have to create a new number to describe America's debt.

Suffice it to say that we have big problems in America and around the world, but there seems to be few reporters asking any questions to expose the causes or roots if these problems. They don't even make our leaders uneasy during interviews, for the most part. When Kamala Harris can say stupid shit like...

...to seize the moment in time in which we exist and are present and to be able to contextualize it....

Only to have no one question what she is talking about. Here is yet another example of Harois' stupidity And, worst still are the things the actual president has said while reporters ignore them. Our media is useless to all except to those who pay their salaries.

While this may be more apparent most, it reminds me of when I first experienced this phenomenon myself. I was listening to National Public Radio which was having a discussion about food production in America. A lobbyist was defending the food industry as a whole while one or two reporters were questioning him and an advocate for people's rights as they pertain to things like food insecurity was in the same panel. In this group, one would have incorrectly thought that at least one tough question would be asked if the food industry representative and one was, but not by anyone on that panel. I called in and was able to ask why food products seem to be shrinking. For example, why are cereal boxes getting smaller. His answer was that food producers realize that there is an obesity epidemic in this country, so they were doing their part by providing less food in their products. I was only allowed to ask my initial question, but assumed that one of the reporters of the food advocate would ask a following like: "if your concern is solely for people's health than why have the prices on food products the same even though you are providing less? Or, ask this question, which is not as apparent but much more revealing of the corporate greed that exists even when the outcome relates to commodities needed for life. If I were allowed a follow up to the food lobbyist 's claim that to be looking out for people's health, I would have asked this

If you are providing less food for people's health, why then do you choose the one dimension of the cereal box that people are least likely to pay attention. Why is it that the only dimension of cereal boxes that has been reduced is their depth? Why not shrink the width or the height? Why shrink only the depth. Is it because most people won't notice that the box is only 2.5" (inches) deep instead of 3.5" (inches) deep?

Instead, this man's answer was accepted on its face and the conversation continued as if what he said wasn't dishonest and troubling. And, yes, I did try to call back in for a follow up, but the program had ended before I could get back online. The sad truth of the matter is, that I'm not trained to question and interview people, but in this instance and several since, I have had the wherewithal to realize when someone was blowing smoke up the listeners butts and when further scrutiny was required... Something that doesn't seem to exist with today's main stream media reporters. I know this is by design, it just saddens me to know that those who should be our last line of defense against corruption aren't.

In 2018, I wrote a book highlighting the problems Humanity would face if more power, wealth, and control was funneled to a small group of elite individuals, groups, or organizations. In my book, I provided solutions (from myself and others) to the inevitable problems and also a means for the Public to analyze, compare, and contrast the words and deeds of those we choose to follow against reality. In my book Solutions: Enough complaining. Let's fix America.

In "Solutions...", I provide the means for readers to disseminate information as provided by their news sources of choice, their elected officials, and any other authority they choose to follow. The book also offers a means to hold their leaders up, not just to a higher standard than is currently accepted but to one that would improve their lives and the lives of those for whom they care.
