Corporate Media: The Missing Headlines
While compulsory lying, distractions and inane diversions reduce our fourth estate into corporate government's fifth column, it seems omission is the key tactic so solidly embedding mainstream corporate media into an exploiter of the people. Americans remain well informed regarding celebrities, entertainment, sports and weather--but when it comes to information people need to vote intelligently, understand what corporate government is really up to, or understand environmental issues, corporate media is little more than special-interest propaganda. And when it comes to the complex relationship of the nation and its citizens to the 95% of global population that are not American...strategies such as omission perpetuate the fossilized notion of "we're number one" being all that Americans really need to know.
So what if instead of subjugating, dividing and stupefying the people, corporate media actually lived up to its noblest reason for being and served the peoples' best interests? What might be some of the headlines we'd see, and the essence driving them?
Closed-door session of the House prompts representative outrage, leaks
(March 13, 2008) The House of Representatives held only its sixth closed session since 1812, and the first since July 1983, when it secretly discussed U.S. support for the Contras in Nicaragua. The publicly stated reason for the recent closed session was for members to discuss new citizen surveillance provisions. However, conversations off the record have indicated that the meeting was primarily about nine key issues:
1) the imminent collapse of the U.S. economy to occur by September 2008
2) the imminent collapse of U.S. federal government finances by February 2009
3) the possibility of civil war inside the USA as a result of the collapses
4) advance round-ups of "insurgent U.S. citizens" (those opposing the New World Order) likely to move against the government
5) detention of those rounded-up at "REX 84"camps constructed throughout the USA
6) possibility of retaliation against members of Congress for the collapses
7) the location of "safe facilities" for members of Congress and their families to reside during expected massive civil unrest
