The media only does puff pieces or hit pieces.

I’m convinced of it. That’s it. There is no more integrity in the media. And I can’t really recall a time when there was That’s the sad thing about my generation. Truth is too inconvenient for them

to uphold.

So if you want the truth, don’t look at any of the media outlets, and the so called news sources. They’re not interested in keeping you informed for the sake of your well being or giving you real information. I mean, I just feel like we’re living in a time when you can actually bribed the media to do puff pieces on anything. It’s called sponsorship and advertising. But come on. I mean, it’s it’s almost blatant, when they all pretty much carry the same text everywhere.

Looks like a scripted. This will work right when you are the anchors are using the same sentences.

Yeah, you’re right. It’s cheap, though. It’s the same script at least get creative with your scripts.

Yeah. The latest very striking. Example was let’s build back better. This was on everyone’s lips. Yeah. To remember.

Every other so called slogan that were supposed to be brainwashed by, you know? Stay at home, it saves lives. I mean, there’s like so many of these repetitive words that they were using slogans that they were using to really

get at us. That’s how I see it. Am I wrong?

Like that because people are have been channeled into a certain direction, the role of the media it’s not surprising that some people would use means they have to try to steer people. It’s very new to situation where we are currently living before you were only interested in your local life, right? You If I think about even one or two generations before, people are not living very much their villages. They were living in cities in Europe 80% of people who are living in the countryside, the peasants, and really going like 50 kilometers to a larger city would be probably once in a lifetime, right? So nobody could lie to you about what’s going on. You You had direct experience or you could have access witnesses or what was going on, but what about

the larger world’s news? What about far away?

Nobody was really interested in that.

I think how long ago was it? I

think, the generational what two generations before us, right, right.

And then over time, I think if information just became so fast, it just became more available everywhere. And that became an opportunity somewhere along the way to, you know, to really inform us in the way that that was convenient.

Yes. Are we really informed? That’s the

question. That’s the question. Is it real information? And that’s what I think it’s not for example, I don’t want to harp on this too much, because it’s really a troubling piece of news but the FTX scandal, the mainstream media was trading so carefully because Sam bank Winfrey, the founder, and the CEO, was a big source of funds for media outlets. And when that scandal and for those of you who don’t know, it’s the biggest scandal involving a cryptocurrency exchange that was found not only on corruption and mismanagement charges on every level, but losing billions of dollars of their customers money. So when this was also in meltdown phase and everything was blowing up and the internet, you know, everyone was talking about it. No media outlet ran with the story, at least not accurately. And the only time immediately after the whole internet was on fire with a density of sand brain paper free which who they call SBS and it’s called hertz cohorts who were hooked on medical drugs by the way, that’s what they did. For pleasure. And incompetent as the only interview that SBF gave was to the New York Times and it was really a joke. Not once in the article that The New York Times mentioned the fraud or rebuke the corruption of the whole FTX scandal. I mean, wouldn’t that be the whole point of the article? In fact, all they could do is highlight this guy’s generosity with all the money he gave, and to whom, well primarily it was politicians and of course, oh, yes, it was the media. So are we surprised that the New York Times didn’t get incensed and get all worked up and write a scathing article on this crime? Is it left to all of the rest of us who then must do our own research and try to go to as many valuable sources of our own in order to learn the truth that seems to be the only way this day and age?

I think we we are going to have to learn how to deal with the media the same way the Soviet citizens were dealing with their media. They didn’t have access to a lot of different newspapers. There are two of them. They were the news and the Prophet. And they were saying that there’s no news in the truth. And there’s no truth in the news,

guys, so they got it. They got it

right from the UI. They got it but they got something that they think we should get more is that when they were reading these newspapers, they were reading them in order not to know what was said, but to really get what was not said.

And to see what was really on the mind of anyone that wants to push any kind of a narrative or an agenda which is very clever and that’s how we have to look at the news today’s look at the headlines and say, Okay, what is it that they’re really trying to get at?

So you have this minister or this person who is attacked in the media because he has not honest, is attacked for whatever reason? To read it the way it’s not that he’s attacked for this and this reason is why are they talking about it in the media?

Yeah, that’s a great question.

So we bought you know, it’s like, you know, crimes. Benefits, right. I think people are not sophisticated enough to think along these lines that these newspapers and this media, they have owners who have agendas, and never anything that goes beyond that, and against that agenda will be allowed to have some airwave airtime,

which we see we see that all the time, things get shut down and deleted and cancelled if they go against the mainstream narrative. And what’s really shocking to me is that the people that buy it will vilify you for saying anything against what’s in the in the mainstream headlines. So you become the bad guy if you if you say no, you know what? I’m not so sure if this is if this is the way it is, I think it should be this way. You will get attacked,

of course you will. But it’s enough to know intimidate some journalists to to know that the whole thing the same. So there is this external discourse that we are free and we can write, right, whatever we want to talk about anything, but at the end of the day, there’s always an editor. So you can be as honest as possible on people who are pushing for the truth or for saying, Oh, this is what happened and I really wanted, they face an editor who says, We’re not going to publish this and if you push for it, you out

said if you don’t tell the line, your words will get slapped. And speaking of words, so the New York Times headline said how Sam bank will freeze crypto Empire collapsed. Okay, there’s a lot more than just collapsing. How about the corruption that St. Venkman freed forged into the into his his company? So it’s just accolades of his so called philanthropy, continued investments, political donations, not one single mention of illegal activity, which the story is rife with that is the story. That’s a blatant puff piece, simply shameful. SP SPF argue is being called the largest financial criminal in human history. And the New York Times is just oblivious to it can’t get their finger on it. pretty appalling. They further gloss over the evil by saying that he continues to play his favorite video games and what kind of a story is this? Video game, by the way was storybook brawl, which is a game that SPF acquired under FTX. So FTX became the owner of storybook brawl, which is a video game and I don’t know anything about it, because he says it helps him to unwind, you know, clear his mind that’s all the New York Times could talk to this guy about during this whole crisis.

Responsibility. If you could take all the elements of a caricature of our book, you would you would struggle everything into the story. You have difficulty for effect genius, was buried parents are very politically connected.

Gosh, how many times have we seen that story? That’s so ridiculous. It should always actually be a sign of smelling a rat.

Yeah, you know, there’s a saying that the devil always shows. It stays at one moment. There are so many things showing and people don’t see. So now it’s it’s not the tail. Yeah. It has to be that obvious. drug consumption absolutely no governance structure into this big company. Actually, the guy who is in charge of liquidating the company under Chapter 11 bankruptcy laws in the US he was the one who liquidated Enron he said he has never seen such a level of I mean, he almost says active corruption. And lack willful lack of financial governance.

Imagine so imagine Enron right so he was ahead of Enron. Right Enron’s liquidation which was huge, right?

So he’s now pointing the finger at SBI to liquidate, and he says, This is the biggest crime ever seen. So Wow. And yet the New York Times article

was just telling the story of someone very generous. Something happened and now he’s he’s just unable to save the world anymore. It’s something that happened. Really, it’s like he was struck by lightning.

It’s closer to an advertisement this New York Times article really it’s an advertisement. It’s it’s a it’s a PR piece. And you know, puffing up SPF then a critical and experts standard journalism, there’s there’s none of that in this. It’s not even reporting it’s more of the same game of support those that pay you at any cost. And the cost here is a truth. The cost here is at the the lives of these people who lost their money because this guy’s criminal corruption was a bigger player than the average person who trusted his services and their safety.

Absolutely. I think there’s a whole network of inappropriate behavior around this money. So you take people’s money when there was a scam of sending this money as supposed to head to Ukraine to buy armament that Ukraine used FTX as investment and a lot of this money was given to both parties,

mostly to the democratic group to

the micro, but they claimed that they also supported the Publican party,

right, which they could have, but I think the numbers I saw was millions to the Democrat and I saw $10,000 or 50,000 or so it was like in the 1000s. To the to the Republicans, whatever the case, it’s appalling because the story, the more you dig deep, the more you peel back the layers and find more and more disturbing information about this whole story that the media has failed to report.

From a political point of view, I think the house has put together inquiry and members, many members of this commission who is going to look at what happened I’ve actually received a donation from

this FTX no conflict of interest there, right.

It’s just incredible. I mean, it’s not only incredible, it could happen. It’s incredible that is out there. The information is out there, and there’s absolutely no reaction. I put it on par with the fact that you know, at the beginning when this COVID thing came out the origin of the virus, there was a huge debate on whether it was a big from the Wuhan lab. And because there was some gain of function, people working on giving some viruses more potency to infect humans. In the name of research. This research had been forbidden to be done in the US by Obama. So Fauci and his crowd descend the research to China. Okay, so in this Wuhan laboratory, you had this research going on granted. Under grants from, from the US government. When there was doubt that this virus that hit the world was coming from a leak from this laboratory. The US Commission, or the United Nation commissioned a group of people to go and investigate the Wuhan Institute and the monks amongst the people who will test to indicate the way other people think this program of gonna function data to American guys. So this is incredible that you, you put a cap on in charge of the tax assessment of the Italian mafia in Chicago.

Shocking as the SPF sorry, Sam Venkman. Free it. Let’s not forget that name. It’s a very troubling individual. And we must all know that people like that exist. He had clear knowledge of what he was doing was wrong. He had clear intent to deceive, and very real damage was caused as a result. And yet, you know, we have these handpick media outlets that covered people were genuinely cheated and lives were shattered. Meanwhile, the media was trying to actually sanitize his reputation. Another example was Forbes when they did a piece on SBS ex girlfriend, who by the way, was also the CEO of SBS. Other company, Alameda research who was stealing funds from FTX. So it was all just one big happy party that they were they were involved in. So the Forbes headlines that calls her Queen Caroline, the risk loving 29 year old Yeah, risk with other people’s money embroiled in the FTS collapse. That was the headline. She was aware of the fraud participated in it and largely contributed to the wipeout of the billions in customer assets. Yet they start the article off with how she is a math whiz genius. Loves Harry Potter. Oh, and she’s also a supporting player of SBS FTX catastrophe, and a new darling of the alt right. They called her that, which makes absolutely no sense how she could be the darling of anyone. But the whole story you could tell was was manipulative. So I guess I got backlash for this title, and they change it to Queen Caroline the fake charity nerd girl behind the FTX claps Okay, getting warmer, but it’s unacceptable the way the media plays with us

well, it’s just there’s only victims in the story.

insult to our to our intelligence and it should be an insult to every single human being that opens a newspaper or looks at any media headline on a daily basis. They should be offended,

I guess so many rules and so many common sense rules have been broken. I agree with you.

Before the, you know, after a couple more of these headlines, a Washington Post, pretty much the same thing before the FTX collapse. Founder poured millions into pandemic prevention. That was what they said. So firstly, don’t get me start on the media is horrible role in the pandemic, let alone them touting him the hero SBF was the hero for pouring millions into pandemic prevention. I’m sorry, that makes me really skeptical. I think it’s creepy and that he was doing that because I can tell you I don’t think it was in the interest of people and dirt on how they have heard so many during the lockdown and vaccine misinformation so if they’re getting behind someone like that, I’m skeptical right away. So no, it’s not just misinformation. It’s blatantly forcing people into situations that no one was telling them the truth about during the pandemic. And so now they’re touting SPF as a hero for putting millions into pandemic prevention. But anyway, that’s for another time. Secondly, what was his role in the so called pandemic prevention that he funded? I think we can all assume pretty much the worst of this guy. Anyway, then they have this headline change to F two F TX failure dooms founders effort to prevent another pandemic. So this guy has hurt so many people in the interest of himself and his rich friends. And we want him to be the one to prevent another pandemic, according to this article, when likely, that’s code word for getting us good again, like are we that stupid that we’re going to trust this man to be our pandemic prevention expert, after what he’s done?

Let me know at the end of the day, you have the heroes you deserve when you live in a fantasy world with the above were plenty things like Oh, come on Superman made a bad investment. And no poor guy has no means to save you

Yeah, poor guy. He lost the millions he was actually going to spend to do pandemic prevention for us. He was such a superhero.

So when I compare when I compare the situation of someone who has made a mistake in his tax returns, and he’s been persecuted by the IRS, or the tax authorities, and can go to prison, because of an honest mistake, and you compare the treatment of this person, to the treatment of this other person,

where they’re saying horrible things happened to him. No, he got caught doing horrible things. It

seems to me that these are almost playing with fire. Because I don’t think people are going to stay long oblivious of this different treatment and dislike of justice and proportion. And it’s it’s just like equity in your face. That way. I can do whatever I want. And I have no consequence.

But a clear message that money speaks because this guy’s money is still working for him. He’s still got the media on his side who’s trying to clean up his reputation and spin stories to his favor.

I mean, it has reached such a level of indecency. At least, you could say they were crooks in the past and rich people who were playing with money and were doing shadow things, but at least they were not parroting in the first visual media and putting in the face of people and seeing you. We do whatever we want. We tell it just the way we want and you cannot do anything about this publication. I don’t think people will stay long silent in front of this abuse. It’s cold blood.

I agree. I totally agree. I think I think something’s going to have to give something has to come rushing on on their faces.

So things are becoming so obvious now. With no apology, no. attempt to hide the reality of things. That it’s either the arrogance of the people in charge of the media in particular as as research proportion, that they have totally lost ground and they think that they are in this position forever and they will never backlash, or it is not on purpose, to create a reaction. It can only lead to destruction of society. And if you’re

still not convinced that the media is not interested in the truth, and they’re not interested in your well being or informing you of things so that you can make better decisions which they’re not they don’t care, by the way about Let’s take one more headline Reuters headline was sad bank Winfrey did fight. Did the financial system a favor Do you remember that when I think you and I slept together rather than any of them, focusing on the fact that this corruption towers over the all time scandal is organized account fraud, accounting fraud of Enron, the FTX crime is far more devious than that. And we have to hear anything but about the crime. The actual crime that was committed. We have to hear that sound bank Winfrey did us a favor to the financial system. So as you can see, the media is working for whatever their interest lies. We use SPF as a case study here are really I mean, put in a blue, fill in this blank with anyone else write with any other topic. Any headline that you saw today, just just plug it into here. Plug in any of the previous headlines, lockdowns, COVID vaccine, how about war? How about economic crisis that they want to keep scaring us through? What about climate change? All these headlines and all these panic buttons that they keep pushing in, in the masses is for a reason. And that reason is not truth and that reason is not for the greater good of us. And, I mean, you know who are they doing a favor in painting pictures like, oh, math whiz and Harry Potter fans and do gooder pandemic preventer. You know, who just made a couple of mistakes along the way. Oh, you know, it’s appalling. The media continues to prove itself to be dishonest, corrupt and an unworthy machine of lies, who have little or no value in our in our lives. People get jail sentences for much less than that.

Yes, yes. And really painting the thief as a hero because he stole your car. And he did your favor to you because you could have had an accident with it. It’s really astonishing.
