The Age of People Power
When I was young we had only three TV news outlets and about three Newspapers and all were liberal to the point of being Socialist. The control of news was so extreme in every nation that we the people were as if in a cult of controlled information by the few. If you look throughout history, every dictatorship had to first control information but today that can no longer happen.
Because we, the people, now have access to all information and massive communication between the masses (face book), we can now be an organized force even without a leader. A good example of this is the Tea Party who organized across the nation and no one can claim to have organized it and today it has no leader or leaders.
This access to information and massive communication to the entire world has taken away a major power of governments over people. If you believe like I do that governments should only exist at the will of the people, this is good. However, it could also be bad.

Before this information age, the three major (only) news medias, ABC, CBS and NBC told us what was news and we had to accept it. Important things could be happening in the world, like the killing of millions of Jews, but if they did not report it, we did not know it was happening.
If they wanted us to believe a lie, they simply said it over and over again each and everyday as though it was the most important thing to report. They supported Communism all the way past World War II on our news media. When Ronald Reagan ran and won the Presidency, they attacked him each and everyday calling him “stupid and unprepared to run any country”.
No one has had their wrath as much as Ronald Reagan until Sarah Palin came into the lime light. She is everything they hate: a loving wife, a business woman, a gun supporter, a successful mayor and governor, someone who cleaned up Republican corruption, and beat down the Oil Companies. While doing all this she was a great and loving mother with a handicapped child, and another one with problems that had to be faced with love. No wonder they cannot stand her. I cannot go to CNBC or CNN without them attaching her every hour on the hour. What is it they fear about her?
All these far left news outlets are going broke and they know the reason is their left leaning ideas but refuse to change. We can only assume that their socialist agenda is more important than economic survival. From them you will never find the truth of Global Warming, or Obama’s real childhood, and they will just make fun of anyone who questions them, but will not put up any evidence.
real threat of these Socialist News outlets is what they do not say even
today. For example, the great news of
today that is not reported: 1. Saudi
Arabia bought and received two Atomic Bombs and missals from Pakistan and only
the internet reported it. 2.
Of course about 30% of Americans have their heads in the sand and have no idea what is going on in the world and do not want to know. I cannot do anything about the three monkeys who see no evil, hear no evil, and speak no evil. They will not be prepared for the future, good or bad.
You must have information and the wisdom to know its truth or not.
