Notice how there was no “antiwar” movement during the ‘90’s, even though we were at war the entire time in Iraq, Haiti, Kosovo, a dab here and there in Afghanistan and Sudan. Then, after 9/11, it was the “Next Vietnam” with a passionate “antiwar” movement with the NYT’s full treasonous participation, just like the good old days. And now, even though the daily death count has matched the highest daily rate we ever saw in Iraq, there is no “antiwar” movement or daily casualty count in all the newspapers. It’s like the “antiwar” movement can be turned off and on like a switch, depending on which party is in the White House.

I would think that counts as negative information, in that any one relying on Old Media for knowledge about the world and the nation knows less than someone who doesn’t read Old Media at all.

Kinda reminds you of the homeless. They don’t exist when a Democrat is in the White House.

Yet the Net relies almost exclusively on Old Media for basic information. Who pays for people to go out and collect data, regardless of how incompetently or with bias, if Old Media goes away ?

(Except for celebrity interviews and paparazzo pics, of course, those shall be with us always.)

Fisking and remembering is at what Netizens excel.

As always, something new will replace the old and out-dated. People with information will post it on the net and others will compile the info … how will it all pan out? ¿Quién sabe?

The current system is broken past fixing. It disseminates lies and distortions. Better to be ignorant than believe propaganda put out even in smallest matters like the across the board reportage that Obama didn’t bounce his pitch at the All Star game.

I saw the ESPN video. The catcher moved in front of plate and picked up the ball after the bounce. Now that part has been excised.

Of course fifty thousand people at the ballpark saw the truth and many video taped it, so how will even Obama supporters believe anything in the media if they’re willing to lie about such an insignificant thing as pitching a baseball?

It comes down to whom do you believe — the media or your own lying eyes? After seeing the same lie over and over the years, most people will doubt themselves.

We are already seeing an ever increasing amount of information being gathered raw by Netizens, such as Michael Totten and Michael Yon, or the Pajamas Media network.
