Father, Grandfather, Songwriter, Entertainer
In my general opinion, what the general public believes to be true is generally incorrect!
What the media tells the public is intentionally false. The general public is either too stupid to realize it or cannot handle the truth and become reality deniers.
I use the media almost strictly for entertainment. In the newspapers it can come on any page, any section, even the front one. But if it the article is of a military or political nature, I tend to dismiss it.
I do not get my education from the media. I get it from experience. I believe that my opinion, based on my own experience, is equal or even superior to that of the so-called facts spewed by the media and its followers.
Sometimes people will call me narrow minded for thinking this way. I will not argue. I am narrow minded to some degree. Everyone is.
I go through 2 newspapers every day. Most people assume that a person who does that must be a news hound. Not so. I am looking for entertainment within the news. Maybe some fact – such as what you might find on the sports page. But overall I read only what I want to read. Sometimes I’ll find something enlightening, a human interest story, or even an historical article (as long as it’s not the political or military kind). I do not read the newspaper for the news. I read it for relaxation and entertainment. I like to lie down in bed and red with great relaxation the articles I have plucked from the newspaper, my own personal magazine. If newspapers ever go completely to the web, I will not follow. I will not chase them to the web. I will find another diversion to replace them.
Yes, the media is garbage. But the late nite comics whose nightly monologues consist almost entirely of garbage from the front page – that is not just garbage, but rotting garbage. I hate it.
Right On, Tommy!
