    ‘The ABC (Australia) no longer even pretends to be balanced’

    ABC's feminist ideas panel 'crossed the line'

    The Australian columnist and Sydney Institute head Gerard Henderson says the ABC’s recent 'feminist ideas' panel “crossed the line” by not including conservative voices.

    In America, I stopped watching the mainstream national news because it was all just different versions of the "I hate Trump show." They don't pretend to be professional. Three years now, and nothing has changed. I suspect they're gonna have a surprise a year from now, if other people think the way I do. But then, after 2016, they might not allow another free election.

    We need to stop thinking of these networks as purveyors of news. They aren't even purveyors of current events. They are purveyors of mind control, of programing, specifically propaganda programming.

    We all seem scandalized when we catch them "not even pretending" anymore, but our "expectations" of what they should be is all part of the programing. We "expect" them to be balanced, unbiased, and to tell us the truth. Which, in and of itself, is all part of the program, and why we get annoyed when some of us become aware that they are straying from our expectations.

    We need to let it go. It's not real...

    Put another way, if you want to know what not to think, just tune in to the program...

    They should preface all their news broadcasts with this notice:
    "Regular news has been preempted due to the 3-year national emergency to get Trump out of office. We hope you will enjoy the latest episode of the WE HATE TRUMP SHOW!"
