This was a very insightful interview, from someone inside on how the media works and how it is making itself irrelevant.

About the 4:30 mark, in the second clip, gets really deep into the problem.

Well, it's been pretty obvious that most of them are getting their news from AP and Reuters. You just look at the location just before the story and it will typically say, (AP), or (Reuters). And, if you pay close attention and get the news from several different sources, you will see that they say the exact same thing, verbatim, regardless of the secondary news source.

AP and Reuters have been caught, several times, photoshopping and lying and they continue to do so.

As for Swann, he rules. He is what the media SHOULD BE. I don't want your damn opinion, I want the news, all of it. Not speculation, not, "it could be", "it may be", "it might", "I believe", "I think", "I feel", NO! Give the facts and nothing else. THAT is what the news is supposed to do.

That's why I laugh when someone tries to tell me that there is a difference between CNN and Fox and MSNBC. No, there isn't. They all lie. And people continue to sit there, like zombies in front of the thinking box; the box that tells them what to think.

I always ask two questions:

Where is the money coming from?
What is their motivation?

You get the answers to those questions on anything, you will always find the truth.

Following the money, I have found to be a truism. I thought his "inside" view was interesting.

Yeah Reuters/AP all that is tied in w/ the Big 6 and the NEP. Some people just believe what they want. He calls it "group think". It's just corporatism.

We all know the MCM is making themselves irrelevant and the signs are showing all the time. I agree Ben Swann rocks.
