shinester: Yeah, I'm wondering where we can get real news in this country? Mar 17, 2017 16:38:49 GMT 10
Peter: If you do find out, please let me know... Mar 17, 2017 21:23:53 GMT 10
blueshoes (not logged in): I would love to know that too... Mar 18, 2017 19:47:11 GMT 10
paranoia: It's dead. People aren't willing to pay for news and real news costs money. That money either comes from advertisers or interests, both have an agenda. Mar 18, 2017 22:08:41 GMT 10
paranoia: Anyone who tries to be independent does not have the budget to actually dig deep enough to tell the deep truth as opposed to the surface truth. Mar 18, 2017 22:10:56 GMT 10
paranoia: Not to mention there are not enough people who actually care about truth enough to watch something that challenges their views. So market forces cannot fix this one... I think we're going to have to accept this is a 'Post-truth' environment. Mar 18, 2017 22:13:33 GMT 10
ziggysdad: I think we are in the minority - most people don't actually want to know what is going on - they just want to go about their day with the knowledge that everything is wonderful and nothing bad will ever happen to them Mar 18, 2017 22:26:13 GMT 10
ziggysdad: That is why it is so easy to dismiss real news as extremists or conspiracy theories, because people don't want that apple cart upset Mar 18, 2017 22:27:19 GMT 10
Chloe: Late to the convo but I fully agree with ZD Mar 19, 2017 14:02:23 GMT 10
shinester: "Anyone who tries to be independent does not have the budget to actually dig deep enough to tell the deep truth as opposed to the surface truth. " - dunno, there's been lots of recent examples of truth telling done on the cheap, particularly having ... Mar 19, 2017 14:41:50 GMT 10
shinester: actual feeds of events, exposing via cheap reporting [project veritas for instance] and they have sure made money via youtube etc. The alternative political reporting has been good business for many small players, you have mark dice for instance with .. Mar 19, 2017 14:43:39 GMT 10
shinester: ... with almost a million people. Sure he's more about satire and poking fun at one position, though the perspective gives you an escape to the narrative. I just haven't seen many people doing the same thing locally, to give you that quick punch of info. Mar 19, 2017 14:44:39 GMT 10
shinester: In terms of 'extremist or conspiracy theories' .. sure, there's some who do that, though it's interesting to see how many main stream conspiracy theories have propagated such as Trump being influenced by Russia for instance Mar 19, 2017 14:45:51 GMT 10
shinester: I do think people look for truth actually, it's just that they're also lazy about getting it and don't understand the cost of getting it in terms of time. This is why there's been a pushback against PC nonsense, it's often full of lies. Mar 19, 2017 14:46:48 GMT 10
