Why we can’t say ‘good bye’ to MSM
The problem lies here in. We still read and watch MSM, carefully chosen for the subject matter of course, to keep up with what diabolical story they are making up next. We, the sane and intelligent people then need to refute that nonsense. Otherwise who else will? Parts of MSM seem to be believable, such as 4 Corners on ABC. Watching it right now and so far it has been in formation only, which I appreciate. Very informative and freaking me out about cyber warfare. Very disturbing and I believe it all, yet on other ABC programs, the journalist is often biased towards someone I consider to be a liar, feels superior to women, no polices worth anything of value and they will not be ALP MP’s.
QandA is on now. Gay bishop, Gene Robinson is saying that Jesus may have been gay. Well this episode is at least entertainment. IPA is funded by? Possibly Big Tobacco. And contradicting themselves…. Atheist made a good point. Conversation about sodomy. Diverse opinions. Woah, Fred Nile has been challenged, but was not addressed properly. Atheist professor Lawrence Krauss is saying that Islam is as ridiculous as Christianity. Amanda Vanstone says we must all make friends with Muslims and Africans and go out to dinner with them. Fred Nile said “love your enemy”. How can one possibly love an enemy? If you love them, then they will at least be a friend. Once you know that you love someone, it is impossible for them to be an enemy. Lawrence should have said his conscience. This episode has been weird. I’m a Gnostic teacher and all this is nonsense. Susan Ryan seems lost and out of her depth. The mistake from Gnostic knowledge, is about Fred Nile’s concept of God and is that he thinks the Creator God of all that is, is one and the same god as is depicted in the Christian Bible. The god of the bible if even exists, is a very lesser god of which there are millions. No one can have a relationship with God. And also not possible to have a relationship with the Christian god, or any god for that matter. And you cannot love someone you do not know and never met. When a person thinks that god has spoken to them, it can only be vivid imagination or hallucination. Euthanasia. I have a solution for that. Costs nothing and very easy to do. And legal.

I like to listen to politicians talking and that I can do watching any of the MSM TV news broadcasts. Then I check how other MSM have interpreted it. More often than not they have twisted, misrepresented and invented a new pseudo truth. Now this is what happens when MSM interviews an ALP MP. However when interviewing an LNP MP they behave in a completely different way. When an LNP MP spews forth a nonsense, they praise it like it’s a miracle or some profound utterance. Rupert Murdock’s News LTD venerates the leader of the Opposition and all other LNP MP’s. Now they are so transparent as in that anyone with a brain can know that an intelligent man (Rupert Murdock) will only do something like this for ulterior purposes. Therefore if it is for ulterior motives, there must be an opposite that is closer to the truth. Anyone who uses their mind mindfully will realise there is only one point to reading MSM and that is to refute it either on Twitter or Facebook, or like me and blog about it. Anyway, I do believe Rupert Murdock is clinging to straws. He has a stinking reputation, so his influence surely can’t last much longer.
Cardinal George Pell to give evidence at Child Abuse Inquiry
The Victorian premier, Dr Denis Napthine, has called on George Pell to be open and honest with the public about the church’s handling of child sexual abuse. Why would an arch bishop need to be told this? Surely if he is worth his weight in salt, he will know that he HAS to be open and honest. Well I watched part of the inquiry and in my opinion he was unempathetic towards victims and has an ice cold heart. His apology and sympathies were acted and rehearsed. He is not a man of integrity or valour. He is guilty of unlawful privilege, meaning he got away with all cover-ups though his position. But a crime is a crime, no matter if the Pope, Queen or Prime Minister commits it.
Every single time I listen to the news on ABC24 I am infuriated about something. For instance it is very annoying to hear a reporter saying that the dollar is struggling to gain ground when it is already above parity. We do NOT want the dollar to be above parity, so anyone with a brain should know that parity or a bit below is the very best place for our dollar AUD. Anyone who uses the word ‘struggle’ here is ignorant and making a big deal out of nothing. If the dollar hadf kept below parity for the past year Ford may not have closed down in Australia.
Did anyone hear the venom spewed forth from Julie Bishops mouth in Parliament this afternoon? She went on and on. I have come to the conclusion that all LNP MP’s have got together and made a list of vitriolic words that they must use whenever addressing parliament or the press. Because the same wording gets recycled over and over. Let’s see, shambolic government, diabolical mess, incompetent, nothing achieved over past 5 years, liar, broken promises, even when no promise was ever made. All are blatant untruths.
Here’s a link to another perspective on MSM:

And a different view again and one I agree with for the most part:
