The digital era: music, books, TV, video and games all doing fine

But one sector has been hit particularly hard by the new era. Can you guess what it is?

    This is music to my ears. I’m so sick and tired of agenda-driven on-the-take journalism.

    The news media has gotten in on the liquidation action (long before the internet began killing them off.) Their job is no longer to expose corruption but to enable it. Ersatz journalists get paid to manipulate public opinion. Their editors get paid a lot more, but not as much as politicians. It’s food chain of filth and corruption that will facilitate the collapse of civilization if we don’t put a stop to it.

    And I’m not talking about the Toronto Sun. Everyone knows they are not a serious news organization. The worst offender in Canada is the Toronto Star. Rotten to the core. If that dying corporation bites the dust, I’m buying f*cking fireworks!

    The litmus test for honest journalist is the electoral reform issue. The establishment surely likes being able to manipulate 40% of the electorate into giving a party they have a significant amount of control over absolute corrupt power. Considering this is a democratic development that has taken place in 74% of all 181 democratic nations, and 90% of developed countries, real journalists will demand it — which is their duty as members of the fourth estate and protectorates of democracy.

    Funny that the only honest journalist in Canada I know of is Andrew Coyne — a crazy market fundamentalist.

    Not going to miss the continuous brushing of Justin’s hair by the media groupies if the LSM goes to hell, that’s for sure. Though I give this lady credit for finally callinga spade a spade – http://www.thestar.com/news/canada/2016/04/02/trudeau-yoga-pose-stories-pose-their-own-threat-teitel.html

    Books, movies, music and games don’t depend on ads for their main sources of revenue (well I guess music sort of does with radio but my kids don’t listen to radio and somehow their “stars” seem to be doing just fine. Newspapers are nothing more than paid advertising for even “news” as they just repeat what ever slant they are leaning. If I really wanted to read Liberal press releases, I wouldn’t bother paying for the Star to regurgitate them for me. Very little true news these days that you can rely upon not to be biased. I don’t pay for propaganda – of any stripe.
