please don't edit out the questions of the reporter next time. its really annoying trying to understand he's answering to.
As I watched this interview, a few select terms/phrases arose in my analysis of the dispute with institutionalized broadcast media. Elitism, plausible deniability, designed circumstantial evidence, montage, exclusivity, macro vs.. Micro narrative, social cohesion, social confidence, and stewardship. The stories told from generation to generation shape the cultural landscape and non-truths become truths after source separation (death of the narrator.) I believe, as the journalist being interviewed stated, that we as viewers must invest the time and effort to decipher and decrypt the false propaganda presented/administer ed by politico-economic agenda driven sources.

HAHAHA.In dependent journalism never existed. The mass media has always been owned by the same circles for hundreds of years, since the invention of the press. Only now, that people are finding out about this by sharing information themselves over the internet, the mass media starts to admit they are not independent.....&nbs p;Hello Assl, I beg to differ on your assertion that the press has been controlled for hundreds of years. I'll skip the history lesson- your choice of a handle and the way you open your comments speaks volumes. Please google 'Jekyll Island'. This is the birthplace and brainschild for the death of free jounalism. Google it...it is quite informative, but go down a few sites or even to the next page.....you need to get past all the b.s. populating the frist searches- they are, after all owned by the decendents of those who were on Jekyll Island. I tried; I gave up on page seventeen for finding any mention of the fact that it was decided (along with the creation of the fed reserve) that the elites would begin to purchase the major newspapers of the nation and even Europe.&nb sp; Newspapers were the televisions of yesteryear. I can't say I agree with your estimation of Jesuit power either. The Jesuits were are an Order...created for and by the Roman Catholic Curch. Sounds like a case of the tail wagging the dog, on world stomping grounds.
Al Jazeera, aka CNN East
No longer leader of Free World considering a song might land some girls in jail for 7 years. Sounds like Communism with a bit of Stalin still alive and well in Putins Russia.
Funny though, Al Jazeera have just won an RTS award for their coverage of Bahrain. Can you smell something...?
once, Attila, napoleon and Alexander the great were talking.Atti la: if I had machine guns I would conquer EuropeAlexan der: if I had tanks I would conquer IndiaNapoleo n: if I had CNN* nobody would know I lost in Russia* (any wastern media)
A great man once said. "I HAVE A DREAM" now lets bring him to the future.
I have a dream..This Rally is brought to you by Sleep eeezzy.
Don't blame the press blame the Internet it was made for Scammers and missleading information.
Just look around at any news sites Look at the comments. Every Goverment has Tic-tackers these days most Goverment plant one story and Biased News agencies pick them up..
It seems that more and more people are affaid of hearing the truth, even if it means, other may have to die to hide it. And, history is crowded with those who have died violently put truth before power and left a clear path for others to aspire to, if they are willing to pay the ultimate price, which is rare.
That, maybe rareness has only been granted to a few in a natural selection process beyond the control of mankind and only in moments of necessary evolutionary change to further the human race at critical junctions in time.
Recently, it has been reported that the global elite and their corporate puppets are terrified of any truth being reported because truth is like a bright-light in the stinch crawling in the shadows of deception and manipulation even if its only the truth that such manipulation possibly exist.
I, also, cannot imagin a world solely exposed to the truth at every moment in our entire lives, because I honestly think that some lies are necessary for humankind to find the truth through struggle and difficulty.
Yes, I agree, with everything this honorable Journalist has emoted, yet I have not heard much acknowledgement about the highly global audience, that is smarter, more critical and hugely competent in the electronic global media ralm to tease-out the truth behind what is being reported and what is reality.
I, have personally abandoned several highly acclaimed media outlets; both in the US and foreign located as I, have watch over the years their singular view-point reporting leaving out enormous amounts of information on a important event that goes beyond commercial sponsorship and advertiser's bias, but which by all international standards are criminally involved in the deaths of large amounts of innocent lives.
Al Jazeera, leadership and owners are and were involved in funding of terrorist in Libya and now, Syria that killing other Arab and Muslim people trying to live normal lives, yet not a word of condemnation and outrage that has been part of the Palistinian narrative for over 60-years.
