Please Examine Media Pundits Carefully:
Bill O'Reilly, Rush Limbaugh, Pat Robertson, Al Franken, Jim Carville, Sean Hannity, Alan Colmes, Ann Coulter, Joe Scarborough, Neil Cavuto, Michael Moore, Oliver North, Geraldo Rivera, Larry Kudlow, Jim Cramer...
Please don’t allow media pundits to close one's mind by demonizing the words “conservative” or “liberal” and fostering hate. One must always remember that media corporations, their highly-paid commentators, and advertisers can make a lot of money by fostering hate and misinformation. This website provides a host of alternative sources for information other than the mainstream media. While it’s easy to label and pigeonhole people into groups, such activity only separates humanity into mindless tribalism—and in the end, all of us will suffer from the destruction of our life-support system.
"If you can't answer a man's arguments, all is not lost; you can still call him vile names."
—Elbert Hubbard, American Journalist
"If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it."
—Joseph Geobbels, Hitler's Propaganda Minister
"The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country...it is the intelligent minorities which need to make use of propaganda continuously and systematically."
—Edward Bernays, Public Relations Executive and Employee of the United Fruit Company
"If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be."
"A popular government, without popular information, or the means of acquiring it, is but a prologue to a farce or a tragedy...a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives."
"Some men change their party for the sake of their principles; others their principles for the sake of their party."
"People who are willing to give up freedom for the sake of short term security, deserve neither freedom nor security."
