More mainstream media failure, explained for your convenience.

Stop watching this shit, people!  Man. . . .  You could be putting facts and wisdom in your head instead of this junk.

CNN, along with other commercial media, are untrustworthy.

Get real news from actual journalists, folks!!!  Not from these brand leaders.  Start with truthout.org or democracynow.org and go from there, for example.  Use your humanbrain and identify resources that are trustworthy.

Word-swapping & being better off with no news than commercial “news”

The politics and business of health care, by Caitlin Owens. Weekday mornings

Source: Vitals – July 15, 2019 – Axios

So, look at this paragraph:

Biden’s proposal is more ambitious than anything that was seriously on the table during the ACA debate, but looks decidedly moderate compared to Bernie Sanders’ plan — which is significantly more ambitious than almost any other health care system in the world.

It appears to me that the corporate-owned/corporate-controlled media have elected to swap out the word “worse” for “moderate”, and “better” for “ambitious”.  And I think the reason why they did that is because the de-facto tendency for corporate/conservative/status-quo/commercial media is to make it look like, “Gosh, it’s just too hard to do good things.  :-/ Sorry!  I mean, we just tried to do something good and that didn’t work, but now you want to do something *really* good?  How do you think *that* will turn out?  :-/  Yeah.  Now I’m really worried.  Let’s not do that.  That’s just too hard.  It might not work.”

Well, that’s weak.  🙂  And it seems like propaganda and not educational discourse.  So have fun reading your Axios and feeling like you are more aware than you were before you read it.  You were probably more correct in your thinking prior to reading it.  Remember the news that Fox News viewers were actually less informed than those who watch *none* of that garbage, commercial, cable-TV, non-local news.

Opinion | The News Is Bad in Hungary – The New York Times

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/11/01/opinion/hungary-viktor-orban-press-freedom.html

It’s important that we understand what actually goes into making a free, vibrant democracy or else we won’t know how to preserve it and help it flourish. Simply accepting that things are the way they are and they will continue to be that way forever is foolish and childish. It’s important to see that things are always at risk of destruction. Nothing is predetermined. Nothing is permanent. We must strive to preserve what is best about ourselves and to nurture and create more goodness or else other things will spring up as weeds in the garden. Another way of putting it is if you are not part of the solution you’re part of the problem. If you can’t look at your life and see ways that you are actively promoting goodness in the world then you are actually promoting and facilitating negativity.

Forget what Chuck Todd says. He doesn’t see the big picture.

Commercial, private media is the worst affliction of human civilization at least since the 20th century. I cannot wait until its era is past. It is truly a double-edged sword at best. No one can seriously argue its merit after what we have come to now.
