Opinion of the Mainstream Media

Recently, I have been accused of having a bias against the Mainstream Media (MSM). After thinking about this for a while, I thought about all the other people I know who have such a negative view of the MSM of today. If you read many books penned by former Special Forces operators or speak to our veterans returning from Iraq or Afghanistan, they seem to have a similar attitude towards MSM. Many people who believe in self reliance and 2nd Amendment also hold similar views to these. Is there something in the cool aid that we all drink that makes us so sceptical of the corporate owned news outlets? Or is it the rest of the country (some refer to them as the Sheep or Sheeple) too distracted by the latest debacles (MJ’s funeral, what Britney or Lohan is up to today) to pay attention to the bigger issues?

I always say that a healthy dose of paranoia makes me good at my job. Perhaps this “paranoia” is starting to leak into my day to day view of the world, too. Perhaps, they are right, ignorance is bliss!
