It’s a Takeover

wall-lies.jpg

 

 

Power tends to corrupt; absolute power corrupts absolutely.
-Lord Acton

It is very possible that you are unaware of an imminent and somewhat hostile takeover that will more that likely have a significant effect on what news you learn about and ultimately, the way you think. Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp has been in negotiations to purchase the Wall Street Journal, a bid that has sent shock waves through the business and news communities out of concern for protecting the editorial integrity and independence of the Journal, but the impact on the average person has been practically nil.

While it may appear that the average person does not share similar interests as the Wall Street Journal, or even read it on the regular, one must look beyond the traditional scope of business press and stock notes and see the larger issue of one of the most well read newspapers being taken over by a media conglomerate with a history of using its companies to further their own goal and objectives.

While negotiations are underway to put safeguards into place that are to protect the independence of the Journal, it really is only a matter of time before the Wall Street Journal becomes another “Voice of Rupert”, telling only the stories that News Corp want you to know, and moreso, only telling them in the way they want them to be told. It is in that risk that we all will find ourselves.

When one group controls the press and media, they ultimately control not just the flow of information but that actually information. The less voices telling the story means that less stories will be told, less truth will be uncovered and less sides will be revealed. That one story being told will be the story used to control the thoughts of the people, because most people have neither the wherewithal to seek out the truth or the awareness that they are indeed lambs being led to slaughter under a shepherd’s control.

Power is a very dangerous and seductive tool in the best and most enlightened of hands; unfortunately history has taught us, and the present continues to prove, that those in power tend to be the least enlightened.

Keep your eyes open folks.

    Good post Greena! It amazes me that even in 2007 some folks STILL believe everything they read and see when it comes to the news that’s being deceptively force fed to Americans?

    Norie, how good are the burritos in Cali? Cos my manz said that the best burritos he’s ever had were in Mehico but considering there’s a large Mexican population in Cali I did’nt think the difference would be too much…..opinions?

  73. EnglandRepresent Says:

    Also what exactly is in gumbo (this ones for Greenie)?

  74. EnglandRepresent Says:

    Also how much chuck could a wood chuck chuck if a wood chuck could chuck wood? (That one’s open to everyone)

  75. green eyes Says:

    its a yummy creole dish… most popular is seafood gumbo. Kind of like a super chunky, spicy, tomato based full of shrimp, crawfish, crabmeat, fish soup

  76. E Says:

    I always thought the ingredients were all that made the differences in burritos.

  77. EnglandRepresent Says:

    I always thought the ingredients were all that made the differences in burritos.

    its a yummy creole dish… most popular is seafood gumbo. Kind of like a super chunky, spicy, tomato based full of shrimp, crawfish, crabmeat, fish soup

    ^^That does sound pretty tasty Greenie. Although I’d be puttin scallops in there instead of crabmeat. Talkin about crabs, this dude from work gave me two mudcrabs he caught up near Darwin last week the other day…….them shits were the tastiest crabs (no venereal disease) I’ve ever had in my life and they were massive. Like a genetically malformed massive.
