Our country and world is in crisis. Just take a look at the current news stories. A serious problem facing us today starts with the inability to navigate the news and decipher fact from fiction. As a life long writer, journalist and news reporter, I have always taken seriously the responsibility that comes with this profession. Once called “journalistic integrity,” that code of ethics, the standard of our profession, has become almost non-existent in today’s mainstream media. “Journalists” are not what they once were and we have more “reality TV” style news-casting than true news reporting. 24 hour hour news is now a ratings race instead of an unbiased relaying of events.
Throughout the topics I will cover here, I plan to help you find your way through all the bullshit that is fed to you as truth and newsworthy so you can push it aside and focus on the real issues facing our nation and world. I’ll warn you, it’s not usually pretty when you finally push below the surface but it’s necessary if you want to be more aware of what is really going on. The world as you know it is not at all as black and white, right or left, day or night as you are led to believe.
If you are already someone who takes the time to research and question everything you are told, then I applaud your willingness to be more consciously aware. It’s not an overnight revolution and everyone who has taken this path knows it takes an open mind and strong convictions. The man behind the curtain is not always who you’d think and you can not always ignore the truths in front of you, no matter how hard you may try.
I’ve watched the evolution of journalism and it’s really more like a destruction. It has morphed into an entirely new breed of journalists who no longer tell the story, but instead craft the story, even star in the story and way too often, involve themselves in the event to fuel the story where it really never existed.
You’ll see once you are willing to really take a look. We’ll soon trace the ownership and political affiliations of the mainstream media outlets you have been relying on to report the truth without bias, starting on the ground floor of this multilevel tower of deception.
Until next time… ~ #jerseygirlblog
