It is amazing just how big and influential the 9/11 truth and justice movement has become. The New York Times, ABC, CNN, Time magazine, and other dinosaur media outlets cannot push back the political tsunami of truth and accountability that is heading towards Washington.
The official media organs of the totalitarian state are collapsing left and right. Newspaper circulation is declining across the West which is a highly positive development for freedom and democracy because that means less government propaganda is entering the minds of the people. And TV viewership is declining, too, as more people turn to the Internet for their news and entertainment.
Aaron Barnhart writes in The Kansas City Star that “For first time in 20 years, TV ownership declines.” Does that mean TV is dying? No. There are many great television shows and programs that teach, inspire, and entertain. As the former Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission Newton Minow said in his 1961 “vast wasteland” speech:
“When television is good, nothing — not the theater, not the magazines, or newspapers — nothing is better. But when television is bad, nothing is worse.”
Fifty years later, the cross-generational crusade to destroy TV as a mind control and cultural brainwashing tool continues. Reformers are aided with a more conscious and accountable tool – the Internet.
In September 2011, Minow and others participated in an event called “News and Entertainment in the Digital Age: A Vast Wasteland Revisited,” to discus the failure of the official media to serve the public interest and “to reflect upon the changed landscape of television and dramatic shifts in the broader media ecosystem, and identify lessons learned that may help to offer insight into the next 50 years of media and public discourse.” Watch the talk here. The event was covered by Katie Koch of the Harvard Gazette, who wrote:
