What do you mean by this?
I mentioned it in another thread, but it is very appropriate here.
Mainstream media picks and chooses what it talks about, and in doing so, shapes our perception of the world. We hear about Kim Khardasian's latest whatever, and not about Bernie Sanders getting 100,000 people to an Internet-coordinated kickoff on the 29th. We hear about where terrorists bomb archaeological sites and not about the Muslim charities that raised money to rebuild the churches burned in South Carolina.
There's a lot of doom and gloom that we don't hear about too - because some editor didn't think it was worth reporting. The Trans-Pacific Partnership. The fact that (in addition to five African Americans) at least two Native American activists have died in police custody in the past month.
My point being that we can't rely
on mainstream media any more. Not to become one of those 'doom and gloomers', but you have to wonder at some point why the stuff that is reported is getting reported - and why the stuff that isn't ... isn't.
