WTF? "The Internet is an open sewer." That's what this guy from the mainstream media says about the journalism -- and lack there-of -- on the Internet.
Watching the video I could not help but boil the complaints down to one thing: The mainstream is failing, newspapers are a matter of history, citizen journalists and in-the-street reporting of events as
they happen is the new wave. Because of it, the mainstream media see their traditional roles and their jobs as increasingly obsolete and so here they are complaining about the way the Internet makes information and disinformation widely available to all.
The thing is, nothing has changed in terms of accuracy however a great deal has changed in terms of _what_ information is available out there.
The mainstream media routinely failed to cover the truth about war crime atrocities being committed by the United States around the world for the past 100 years. Not once has any mainstream news media outlet covered the terrorism training camps at the School of the Americas which is by far the worse terrorist training camps in the world, located right here on U. S. soil.
Over a million Iraqi citizens have been raped, tortured, and/or slaughtered by the Christian terrorist Busg regime, either directly with American bombs or by depleted uranium, biologicals, the deliberate destruction of water, electric, and road infrastructure by the Christian terrorists.
The mainstream media did not do its job, ergo it could not be trusted to inform. Along comes the generational expansion of the Internet which provides in-camera witness of the atrocities the Bush regime committed and which the Obama regime continues to commit, not just against brown people but also the treason the regimes continue to commit against America.
So watching these mainsteam clowns proclaim how bad the Internet is and how wonderful they and their own accuracy is in comparison, what's left is the further underscoring of the reason why the mainstream news media deserves to die out and fade in to history.
