Media Lies and Fabrications: How to Restore Truth in Media Reporting!

A few years ago, Global Research published an important article by Peter Phillips, entitled: "How to Restore Truth in Media Reporting?" In it, they made some very substantial statements in regard to the important role of the media: We are a nation awash in a sea of information, yet we have a paucity of understanding. We are a country where over a quarter of the population know the names of all five members of the fictitious family from "the Simpsons", yet only one in a thousand can name all the rights protected under the amendment to the US Constitution. Journalistic values have been sold out to commercial interests, and not even our core, national and constitutionally protected values are sacred. Tens of thousands of Americans engaged in various social justice issues constantly witness how corporate media marginalize, denigrate or simply ignore their concerns. Activist groups, working on issues like 9/11 truth, election fraud, impeachment, war propaganda, civil liberties and torture, and many corporate-caused environmental crises have been systematically excluded from mainstream news and the national conversation leading to a genuine truth emergency in the country as a whole. Now, however, a growing number of activists are finally saying "enough!" and joining forces to address this truth emergency in the country as a whole. They are working to reveal the common corporate denominators behind the crises we face, to develop networks of trustworthy news sources, that tell the people what is really going on!
