New generation of unethical journalism

Which candidate you vote for is not all about positions and party – for me, personal ethics and integrity are paramount in that candidate, it’s what I look for first and possibly for many of you.

Put another way, which one is not going to lie to you?

Ditto with the MSM – unprincipled rags get short shrift. Take this for example:

age lie about trump

People with reasoning powers, whatever they think of Trump, will not have too much trouble working out that he never said that to any ‘little people’. The issue is not that, the issue is that the Melbourne Age ran that under its banner as its lead story.

The trick was, of course, that ‘ ‘ marks can be used to denote either that the person is alleged to have said or done that … but they are also used by the MSM to quote people. So, without actually stating it, they allow people to confuse the two. In the article, once clicked on, they clarify.

That is just shoddy journalism and as the senior positions are taken over by Generation X and the middle positions by Millennials, so we see the ethical standards drop.

    The irony of ‘independent. Always.’ It is biased, as most periodicals ardently stating they are not; are.

    Fear by pop stars of being labeled racist, nazi etc by MSM to sing at a Trump convention, well ELVIS has decided that enough is enough, being a true Patriot he will stage a comeback just for the great Donald Trump….whats journalism if it isn’t bullshit ?

    It took me many years to realise just how extensive the brainwashing process is. I and many others have often commented on the devious ways of journalists and politicians. Between them they are guilty of an enormous amount of brainwashing but there are others. The advertising industry is one of the biggest offenders and whilst we include television presenters and commentators under the heading of journalists, a careful examination of all television entertainment will disclose various elements of brainwashing. Anyone who is expressing an opinion is, in fact, doing a bit of brainwashing but the excessive practises of those mentioned above are the ones that do the most damage. Not all expressions of opinions are unworthy, of course and the difficulty is in recognising those which are worthy and which should be strangled at birth!
