It is no secret the Media is losing control. Major media outlets are losing viewers to more contemporary sources like Breitbart or WND. Other sites like ours have thrived in this new world where a small paper can grow by simply telling the truth. It would seem the days of “broadcast” messaging by the establishment are numbered.
Obama is aware of the trend and is now calling it the “wild, wild west.” He claims that wild conspiracy theories run rampant on the Internet. What he really means is, he and others like him cannot control a truly FREE PRESS! That is what we are. We are FREE from the influences of political powers. We are FREE to publish what we choose. We are FREE to expose facts without fear of losing our empire.
In a speech given at the University of Pittsburg Obama says”:
“We are going to have to rebuild within this wild-wild-west-of-information flow some sort of curating function that people agree to .. …There has to be, I think, some sort of way in which we can sort through information that passes some basic truthiness tests and those that we have to discard because they just don’t have any basis in anything that’s actually happening in the world,”
Notice the subtle word; he wants to “curate,” in other words; he wants to censor free speech. He even goes on to say that it is not censorship. He wants a place where people can go to see if something is reliable as if people cannot think for themselves.
In other words, he wants to control the PRESS. Over the past four decades, we have seen Civil rights taken by the courts. The one thing the courts has never touched in the Freedom of the Press.
This might be because the Establishment controlled the press. BUT, not anymore! If there is one thing mightier than an AR-15, it’s my KEYBOARD and my relationship with many FREE PRESS publishers who won’t “CURATE” the news!
