At the same time, there’s a large appetite for the new media world where the MSM gatekeepers no longer hold as much clout, and “he said.
That is the first time any MSM observer has even approached the real issue.
The corporate media; radio, TV, newspapers, and magazines, all stood shoulder to shoulder with the US Government when it lied us all into a pointless war of conquest in Iraq.
Everybody knows the government did it.
And everybody knows the corporate media helped them do it.
And THAT is why the public has turned away from the corporate media.
The Corporate media could easily win back their audience simply by reporting the truth, but just the last few days I noticed History Channel re-selling the "Lone Assassin" cover story for the JFK assassination, and NatGeo bashing alternative theories of what brought down the World Trade Towers (and like the official 9-11 report, no mention of why WTC-7 could have come down the way it did). So, the corporate media is not only perceived as liars, but unrepentant and shameless ones at that.
I have no sympathy for the newspapers and TV newsrooms having to shed staff and close their doors. They did it to themselves. They betrayed the public trust and sold their honor and their souls for a free ride on Air Force One.
