[Correction] Unfortunately, the Media Lens team decided that AMN was too “Corporate Media” (!?!) to be granted republishing permission of their excellent work, so here is a link to their original article, which is very good reading and worth the time.

Original article on Media Lens

Personally, I hope they’ll reconsider but I’ll stubbornly link to their articles nonetheless 🙂

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.

Genuine first hand verified reports have given way to social media hearsay. The terrorists kidnapped the reporters to be ransomed until nobody dared to go to their territory any more and thus they achieved a information monopoly on which warmonger like Trump, May and Macron build their case. And willing careerist reporters are set on the task to help to build it by their monopolist tycoons. Global Goebbels v. 2.0.
