This year, 2008 and the upcoming year, 2009 are going to be very interesting political years. The press and news agencies of the world are going to have a field day spinning public opinion.
I know, if you are anything like the way I used to be, you are about to navigate away from this page. Who cares about politics? That’s someone else’s world. I have not been interested in politics for very long. But now I am, and I am impressed by the way the press manipulates public opinion with every little bit of news (It sure seems like the news is overplaying the hell out of the economy thing, forcing us further into the red because the public is scared).
One Gullible Citizen Interviewed for this article:“If I see it on the Television, it has to be true! Heck, I saw it on a big news network!”
I am always online for work, check out the news headlines I just read: In Hard Times, Russia Moves In to Reclaim Private Industries
This really is an interesting spin. The press is writing an article regarding the Kremlins move to undermine private industries that are in financial trouble and gaining more control over the multi-billion dollar mining and oil industries. Their spin on the situation is bad. Russia is bad.
Here’s the thing. The fully Democratic government here in the states is taking control over major financial institutions because of the mortgage induced credit crisis. The government will be in control. Also, the Detroit crunch with the possible bankruptcy of GM, Ford and Chrysler is going to give the state more control over more of our private industries. Our government has been hiring all of the smartest minds from the private industries to gather together and figure out how to help certain industries with their cash injections and their stronger control over the industry. I am not opposed to all the work going into bailing out the economy or opposed to the government having greater control over certain industries. I’m just saying the press is spinning every event in favor of the way the United States is handling the situation as positive and the press spinning negative propaganda towards Russia on similar issues. The worst is the press hinting at a new cold war with Russia because of their slide back to Communism. WTF people.
Our government is getting a lot of irons in the private industry fires as well. The press is spinning, spinning, SPINNING! Let’s see them get their iron in the private health care industry..now that would be real real nice.
