Main steam media denies peak oil, and does not tell us what the consequences of peak oil will be. If you want to learn what the consequences of peak oil are, you need to learn that from alternative media like Youtube. And no I am not going to waste anymore time debating about peak oil on this forum. There is no point giving evidence to people who reject all evidence.

Main stream media lied about the attacks of 911, as in the World Trade Center getting bombed by so-called terrorists. According to the mainstream media, the US government had no foreknowledge of the 911 attacks. That's just nonsense. There is overwhelming evidence that the US government KNEW 911 was going to happen beforehand, but they let it happen anyways because the government WANTED 911 to happen. 911 happening allowed the government to come up with the excuse of the War on Terror, which is really just an excuse for grabbing all of the oil resources in the Middle East.

Mainstream media lied about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. They used that as an excuse for invading Iraq and disposing of Saddam Hussein. Yet there was ZERO evidence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. So they invaded Iraq for no just and legal reasons. They really invaded Iraq because Saddam Hussein was trading oil in Euros instead of US dollars, and this threatened the US petrodollar arrangement.

Mainstream media lies about the War on Terror because it really has nothing to do with terrorists. The whole war is actually all about controlling the oil resources in the Middle East.

Mainstream media is lying again about the fact that Iran is committing crimes against humanity by developing so-called weapons of mass destruction like nukes. Even if Iran is arming itself with nuclear weapons, they have every right to arm themselves. And there is no reason Iran will use those weapons on anyone. But all evidence shows that Iran is just developing nuclear fission for energy purposes, which are entirely peaceful. They are using the weapons of mass destruction excuse to invade Iran for oil. Yes, Iran has the world's third or forth largest oil reserves, so it is very important for the USA to invade them for oil. I bet you the USA government will come up with another false flag attack, like 911, to come up as an excuse for invading Iran.

If oil wasn't important for the global economy, there would be no reason for the USA to start so many wars over oil. Oil is axiomatic to modern civilization, which is why countries will fight wars over it. Without oil, you don't have food or anything. Without oil, society falls apart, so countries will make excuses in order to fight for oil.

Mainstream media is an absolute joke. They wouldn't tell you the truth about 911 and the War on Terror because that would give the government even less credibility than they already have. The mainstream media is nothing more than the propaganda machine of the government and big corporations. I don't take mainstream media seriously. I take everything the mainstream media says with a grain of salt. I do believe some of it, but I can tell when the mainstream media is lying.

Not everything the mainstream media says is bullshit. But they definitely have an agenda, which is why the mainstream media is often terribly biased and deceitful. I am pretty sure there are people who agree with the things I say.

You got a lot on your mind... But I agree in a sense. Media has become a reflection of the people who run the outlets. They are too focused on nurturing a narrow school of thought.

Yeah. I agree. I wish they'd just show boobs.

Oh...wait. That's not what you mean. Oh. Well.

I hope you aren't dumb enough to think you are educating anyone.

Hey, at least DesuMaiden didn't say anything offensive this time, or at least he tried not to. I think people should respond to this post properly, no matter where they stand on the topic. Or not. I'm not yo daddy.



Anyway, I don't really have a firm opinion on the topic. Yeah, it can be hard to take mainstream media seriously, but it's there, it has a purpose, and it's not going anywhere.

OP is right about mainstream media being a joke, but coming in the wrong way. I can't help but picture this expression permanently stuck on his/her face:

Mainstream media is both a way to entertain the masses and a way to hide things from them. People will riot and be uncontrollable if the government speaks nothing but the whole and complete truth.

As flawed as the government is, this is not the fault of one big shot on top or even within the control of the top 1%. Demanding that they change it this instant is like telling the captain to steer the Titanic with an oar. Things have gradually snowballed until they are at the state in which we recognize them now. At this point, a complete and sudden reform is impossible. The damage can just be slowed to make the current system last as long as possible.

An analogy can be made to the aging of a body. Perhaps it was nice and simple in the beginning, with wonderful effectiveness. But now the body is aging. Wounds heal more slowly, there's not quite as much energy as before, the reflexes are dulling, the senses are deteriorating. The government can't be perfect, let alone be expected to last longer than it can. Little problems build and build until the entire structure collapses.

The mainstream media plays the role of a painkiller in the body of society. It can disguise the bad but, in exchange, it becomes harder to respond to problems.
