THE (DWINDLING) POWER OF CONVENTIONAL MEDIA

The following gives an idea of how powerful the effect of the media has been in the past. Contrived stories, omissions etc can have an enormous effect on public opinion. Unless of course the readers and viewers are now waking up and rejecting the conventional media – which they are. How many lives have been lost as a result of warmongering news items?

Talking of omissions – why does local media not touch the advisor issue, which after all was raised by a serving MHK? It seems that Johnston Press is pushed for cash, why? Lack of interest? Dwindling amount of readers?

  1. This is the classic “bayoneting babies” type story at 4.37 which is a re-hash of the German soldiers bayoneting Belgian babies in WW1 which was later found to be false. All these people do is peel off the label on the old stories and put a new label on to wind people up.
