|Tea For Two|
If a government is large enough to give you everything what you want
it is large enough to take everything you have.
Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance,
and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.

Has the media failed or has it become extremely successful?
When you ask yourself this question you first have to define what success is in the minds of the media complex. So first let's try to determine what is their purpose, or their purpose as they see it.
Is their purpose to give out the news of what's happening around the world? To answers that question we only have to ask ourselves are they giving us the news as it is happening. And if you honestly analyze the news as it is given to the news consumers you see the answer to this is no. We determined this because many important stories never make the front page, and many important stories that do make the front page only show one side of the situation. We have also seen stories are held back from release until the release of the story will make the biggest impact on the political scene. So what I am saying here is that the media has a bias in the way they present the news. So it appears the purpose of the news, according to the news medias presentation of the news, is to give a one-sided slant on this presentation for the purpose of influencing the recipients of the news.
Going back to the original question, it is obvious that the news media is not failed and have in fact been extremely successful in what they feel their purpose is. The people today believe that Israel is the aggressor against the Palestinians, that Bush lied about Saddam Hussein attempting to gather yellowcake, even though 550 tons of yellowcake was found in Saddam Hussein's possession.
When it comes to the economy the media has pushed the Republicans on what they intend to do to improve it, but have failed to ask the Democrats what their plan is for the future of the American economy. The Democrats have continually said that there must be a balanced approach to solve the fiscal problem. That approach includes raising taxes on the rich and a cut in spending. Yet not one of the big three media outlets and inquired into what programs the Democrats would cut. They fear no problem in asking that question of the Republicans, however. When the alternative media have asked that question of the Democrats, they have received answers like, "we intend to cut back on Medicare fraud." But even Fox news fails to follow up on that answer by asking the question, if there is that much fraud why are we not stopping it now?
I think the answer to my original question is that the mainstream media has been extremely successful in controlling the direction that this country is taking on the road towards Greece.
