25 Facts Mainstream Media is Killing

Cover of "Idiocracy"
‘We are watching a media revolution happen, and many in the mainstream media are totally freaking out about it. In fact, some in the mainstream media have even begun publishing articles that mock the American people for not trusting them.

‘For example, a recent CNN article entitled “Still ‘paranoid’ after all these years” portrayed Americans that don’t trust the media as paranoid conspiracy theorists that have left rationality behind…

‘The following are 25 facts that the mainstream media doesn’t really want to talk about right now…’

The Destruction of American Childhood
‘Today, a Democracy Now! special with the Canadian physician and bestselling author, Dr. Gabor Maté. From disease to addiction, parenting to attention deficit disorder, Maté’s work focuses on the centrality of early childhood experiences to the development of the brain, and how those experiences can impact everything from behavioral patterns to physical and mental illness. While the relationship between emotional stress and disease, and mental and physical health more broadly, is often considered controversial within medical orthodoxy, Maté argues too many doctors seem to have forgotten what was once a commonplace assumption, that emotions are deeply implicated in both the development of illness, addictions and disorders, and in their healing.

Government Schools and Idiocracy
Take Your Children Out of Government Schools
‘…On the surface, reforming the public schools is indeed needed when one considers that:

About 33% of all U.S. high school students do not know that the Bill of Rights guarantees freedom of speech, religion and due process.
Only 55% of all U.S. students can name the Vice-President.

‘Yes, government schools are doing their job. They are producing students who are educated enough to greet you at Walmart, but too stupid to question authority with any meaningful resolve. Government schools are perpetuating a state of perpetual idiocracy…’

Blogger offers army deal:
Release information, and I’ll go to prison willingly
‘Eishton, the blogger who was recently interrogated and asked to give up sources, is offering authorities an interesting deal: if the army releases all the information that it says is “out in the open” on soldier deaths – Eishton will confess to all charges brought in his interrogation, and will agree to sit in prison.

‘The interrogation of the anonymous blogger was conducted due to a series of posts he published, examining who exactly are the 126 soldiers who “died while protecting their country” between April 2011-2012, as officially pronounced on Memorial Day. Following thorough research and thanks to a leak from within the system, Eiston exposed that only three soldiers were actually killed in the line of duty, while others committed suicide, were involved in accidents or died of illness, and in many cases – did not even die in the year in question but several years before…’
