    Default Media Coverage of Wars.

    Maybe I just don't pay attention anymore but I remember seing CNN 24 hour coverage of conflict around the world.

    Now I have learn from a comedian that the USA is currently at war in 7 countries. Whether or not you declare war. If you bomb my home I will consider that an act of war.

    So where is the media coverage of the 7 wars? Is there just too much wars that everyone just doesn't care anymore?
    I and the voice inside my head, which is actually my conscience, both agree that Jehovas partenalistic rulership is better than Satans liberal anarchy.

    CNN = Fake news. The same goes for most of the mainstream media.

    No no, those are 'conflicts' or 'situations', not 'wars'. The millisecond anyone admits those are actual wars the president needs to answer over why he never got permission from congress.

    Obamassiah won a peace prize after all, he'd never make war, never!

    This is a start. The main goal is to learn how to think for yourself and read between the opinion and BS.

    True. Logic and reason seems to be a foreign concept for most.

    I for one don't like media coverage of wars. They just distract the troops and also gives away the troops position on TV.
    Also, seems kind of lame, running among soldiers with a camera and a microphone.

    Simple.
    Wars are very good for money lenders.
    The voters in America generally do not want war.
    Media corporations basically create public opinion.
    Since media corporations are ultimately owned by money lenders, not covering these wars is good for business.

    LOL, and people wonder why I describe the US government as the biggest terrorist organisation on this planet.

    Don't fret, when war comes to our streets the media will take it very seriously indeed.

    War is not coming to our streets we have no oil so US has no need for us, we are not regarded as the "evil west" so Extremist have no need to attack or at least just yet.
