I don’t usually like conspiracies because most of it do not provide evidence for their case but instead rely on a lack of evidence for their case. But there is evidence now that Iraq did not have weapons of mass destruction. There is also evidence that the media did not conduct independent investigations to confirm the claims from the governments.
I am watching a documentary now by an Emmy award winning independent journalist about the failings of media during war coverage. I think it is good.
I’ve realized somethings as I watch this. Media can become a private military organization.
Hopefully, with the advent of Web 2.0 we can end this once and for all. I can see why the ISPs would want to end neutrality of the Internet. What I am truly amazed is how the fascistic forces of society unite without a leader for ultimately serving their common cause i.e. to slowly eat up the freedoms of a progressive society.
