If you think the above cartoon is a stretch of the current media climate, think again. Check out this disturbing video below.
Why do news reporters rely on scripts? Well, that would be because the media that many have come to rely on for news is actually controlled by a few elite owners and governmental entries pushing out stories as a form of propaganda to the masses. Unfortunately, this disordered infiltration of outside influences formulates many of these news reports that are strategically scripted and used as mediums to promote specific agendas.
In these times individual liberty is consistently attacked and the role of big government is becoming increasingly intrusive on personnel behavior. Journalism is no different from this oppressive over site by outside entities in these modern times. Those that do not go lock and step as a mouthpiece for propaganda are often ostracized from journalism circles and discarded from major mainstream media affiliations.
Many have suggested real mainstream independent journalism is dead, yet hope is on the horizon for journalism to restore its tainted image and regain its integrity and freedom once again. It seems independent news outlets are on the rise and gradually seem to be gaining momentum in influence. This emergence of alternative independent news sources can be signs that reflect the public increasing dissatisfaction with mainstream media’s questionable rhetoric.
This disruptive consolidation by corporate entities over media news currently reflects a form of informational tyranny associated more closely with oppressive forms of totalitarianism/fascist-like propaganda strategies.
More People need to become aware of the massive controlled mainstream media network that is strategically set up to dilute originality and independence in journalism. Hopefully, Independent news outlets will continue to increase and combat this form of polarized tyranny and governmental tampering in journalism.
