If you’ve had some experience on the web or are anything of a skeptic, then you’ll know that much of what the mass media reports is inaccurate, misleading or blatantly FALSE. Sometimes, it seems that the untruthfulness is intentionally perpetuated.
See my post Malaysiakini: Are US News Agencies Biased Against Palestine? and zombietime’s post Reuters’ Four Types of Photo Fraud.
With all the falsity and disregard for journalistic ethics so seemingly prevalent in the mainstream media, Zombietime asks the poignant question: “Can any of the coverage by the entrenched media be trusted?”
Thankfully, in this brave new world of worldwide connectivity and blogs, anyone can be a citizen journalist and dig up the truth – uncovering the lies and ignorance of bad information.
That is one of my blog’s goals, to seek for and perpetuate the truth behind the propaganda – be it global warming paranoia, evolutionistic dogma, or anti-Christian bigotry.
Famous truth-seekers like Zombietime and Little Green Footballs have made their invaluable contributions to the blogosphere of truth. Websites like Snopes unabashedly debunk modern myths and urban legends (albeit with a liberal slant).
And now, here’s another resource for lie-haters:
Click on the image to go to the site that is dedicated to unveiling the myths, lies and fakery perpetuated by the supposedly respectable, trustworthy mainstream media. It’s still new, so the pages are as yet quite sparse.
As bloggers and civilians untainted by the corruption of big-publication politics, I consider it our duty to uphold the truth… And uncover liars and manipulators for the under-a-rock scum they are.
