It would seem that every time you turn on the television lately that all you see is reporting on Russia. There is creative editing and narrative creation. Something similar happened during the previous administration, albeit with a very different outcome in mind.
Fortunately, while this was going on during the prior administration I was forced to look for the truth of what was going on while they were trying to distract me. You understand, while they are focused on a single narrative, many things happen on a daily basis that go unseen my the masses. That is, of course, unless you go looking for the information.
I have to wonder, would all of those who are outraged about the Russian issues change their tune regarding the president if they knew what was actually going on “behind the curtain”? The curtain that is the main stream media. What if they actually knew of how the agenda was being implemented? What if they agreed with some of the things going on? What if they found out about something they really disagreed with? The latter is definitely something that struck me during the previous administration.
I’m sure that for the liberal and progressive out there, there’s plenty to be upset about. Things that actually need to be addressed. Unfortunately very few know about it because the current environment in the media is an echo chamber for them, so they feel no need to look further.
I guess this turned into another anti-mainstream media post, even though it wasn’t the initial intent. They just make it so easy. No, the point was supposed to convince you that you should look at multiple sources, and realize that when tons of focus and effort is put into driving you to follow one thing, you should be concerned about what is going on behind the scenes.
This plays into a previous post about educating yourself. It is your responsibility to search out the information. It’s your responsibility to ask questions. It’s your responsibility to make logical, rational, informed, and educated decisions.
So, I implore you to “pay attention to that man behind the curtain”. Understand what is going on. Get involved. Get engaged.
