internet is part of the media.


"The Media" = "Main Stream Media" aka "Old Media."  The corporate gatekeepers of information and controllers of the narrative.

But you knew that and it IS hard to miss a snark opportunity.  Check out Dunning-Kruger when in doubt.
Pardon me if I'm misinterpreting what you said, but are you saying that websites aren't part of the media?

I totally understand the confusion here because the term ‘mainstream media’ was a term used to describe the controlling media before the internet. I believe the death of the main stream media started in 1990’s with RUSH’s popularity, than shows like South Park (which poke fun all ideologies and opened the eyes of many young adults) and finally the ‘digital switchover’ in America in 2009. The digital switchover is important because it makes watching free tv a little more difficult.

Today the media is all over the place because 90% of the news on the internet. I get my general news from my bing bar but I also google search for news if I want to read something, and I believe most do the same. So it seems that all media is mainstream, but it’s not. There is a conflict of information as for what is and isn’t news.

Still confused? Yeah, here is why.  There are two major type of news. Those that aligned themselves openly with a political party/ideology; and those that claims to be 100% neutral/unbiased.

The problem with those that claim to be neutral/unbiased is that they assumed to play the role of the referee; meanwhile the other media outlet shows evidence that the supposed referee media is not neutral and totally bias on their reporting. Than those neutral/unbiased outlets accused the other for purposely bashing the other party/ideology because of their open support.

Who’s right and who’s wrong?

I do know as a RPG (dice chucker and a hardcore RIFTS player) that being 100% neutral is impossible.

Quote
Kevin Siembieda has a noted distaste for "neutral" alignments, as used in Dungeons & Dragons. This is stated in most core rulebooks in the alignment section, and stems from the idea that a truly neutral character would not do anything particularly interesting, like fight or adventure.

People have emotions, thoughts and a motive; especially when they report the news.  Therefore anybody claiming to be 100% neutral/unbiased is lying!  

This is the most interesting presidential election.

TOKYO DRIFTER (1966): Tetsu (Tetsuya Watari) lives the life of a wanderer when his boss Kurata disbands their yakuza gang and goes straight; a rival leader wants Tetsu dead and covets Kurata's real estate holdings. Broad swatches of vivid color (the important gangsters all have a trademark suit hue) and expressionistic sets highlight this ultra-stylized, operatic adventure that oozes yakuza cool. 4.5/5.

Dreadful news.  It appears that he had Alzheimers, but he didn't want to tell anyone lest it tarnish his image in the mind of children.  He sounded like a very gentle, caring man.  I loved him in so many of his 80's comedies.

RIP Mr. Wilder.

Sometimes for no earthly reason I tell my children spontaneous lies, like cauliflower is made out of a brain, and we almost named you "Fanny", my wedding ring holds my finger on, and I don't know where your grandma came from, we just found her in the closet when we moved here.

Now I can't wait til they're teenagers so I can update the lies to more constructive things like, "No, I never did drugs. Yes, I always made good grades. And, why, of course your father was my only boyfriend."

The possibilities intoxicate me.

Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

Lesson Learned:
  • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
