The Senate Judiciary Committee is looking at Senate Bill 673, the Journalism Competition and Preservation Act. How can the media cartel use this to their advantage? Back with us to discuss is Pat Wood (citizensforfreespeech.org), Executive Director of Citizens for Free Speech and Editor of Technocracy News. The bill offers immunity from antitrust laws to big media companies and allows them to go after social media companies for shares of profit. The old school mainstream news outlets want this legislation to pass so they can siphon off others to stay afloat. Their business plans have failed so they've resorted to this.
Truth has been sacrificed on the altar of political narrative in just about every topic in news stories today. John and Producer Steve discuss how the truth has been left behind in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial, in the recent climate change conference, and in the ongoing saga with the pandemic and the vaccines. There's even an indictment regarding the fake Russian dossier that no one in the media seems to care about. Narrative trumps everything else. If someone really wants to know the truth in any situation, the mainstream media, politicians, and social media sites are not the sources to go to.
Once a month, John is a guest on local radio station KYMS here in the Inland Northwest with host Lee Lancaster. This month, John and Lee discuss how the mainstream media insists on reporting that America is severely divided, despite the fact that most people don't feel that way. They also cover the shooting in Boulder, Colorado and the false assumption narratives perpetuated by the media and politicians before any of the facts came out. John also gives a sobering report on persecution in Nigeria, Myanmar, Mozambique, and China.
Listening to the media is enough to make you crazy! On today's podcast, John and Producer Steve sit down and try to make sense of it all. They discuss the tactics media use to distort the truth and advocate for one side of the political aisle. They also get into the kerfuffle over the article in The Atlantic trouncing the President for being disrespectful to our military.
