Some of you deride me for not posting links or reading your links. There is a good reason that I don't. The media, formerly our insurance policy against corruption in government, has become itself corrupt. It has been infiltrated by the CIA and other agencies and acts as nothing more than the Ministry of Truth in Orwell's famous novel.

I would hazard a guess that 90% or more of our under-educated, brain dead population gets most or all of their news from 5 or 6 mainstream sources. Control of those through consolidation of ownership and infiltration / recruitment was accompished years ago. We are now seeing the results. We are 1984

i can't imagine why anyone would bother to deride you. However, you forgot to link to the truly informed world of Alex Jones. Here is a summary for you: www.rollingstone.com/culture/culture-lis...acy-theories-195468/

I didn’t forget anything. Alex Jones is dangerously crazy. I haven’t listened to anything out of his mouth or site since the first time I heard him.

Conspiracy theories have an interesting function in society. They allow the most deluded, gullible, and uncritical people imaginable to think that they have some special sort of knowledge that makes them superior to the rest of us.

I'm not understanding your reply. Are you replying to the Alex Jones stuff or are you saying that the intel agencies don't employ key people in the news outlets?

Towermonkey, it's really hard to debate your position with you when the sources you cite are so untrustworthy; nearly as bad as InfoWars. No, the media has not been "infiltrated" by government agents, at best it's filled with lazy journalists who don't bother digging into their stories to find the big picture truth or who toe the corporate line simply to get clicks and revenue, and at worst, there are some (not all) compromised journalists at every publication who should be reviewed and dismissed for pushing propaganda (i.e. Maggie Haberman at the NY Times) or leaking confidential information they had no business revealing (i.e. Jason Leopold at Buzzfeed).

There is no "Deep State," the conspiracy theories around 9/11 have been debunked, and even you once realized that climate change was happening and mankind was culpable.

BB..... I think the bolded are THREE separate talking points...there is a comma after deep state.
YES, I believe it is a BIG undertaking to understand what is ''true'' and what is''FALSE'', I am retired,so time is a tremendous asset when it comes to 'DIGGING DEEPER''

SC,
It is difficult to take seriously your references when they egregiously make such errors as this "Professor Emiritus"

If you wish to have a serious discussion regarding climate change, please provide your definition. From my perspective the climate is constantly changing. However I do not accept the notion that "anthropomorphic climate change" is the underlying cause.

Sure, attack the source instead of arguing on merits... Rule number one. You did see that I actually linked the CIA website for info on the CIA? I guess you are agreeing with me that they are not to be trusted...
