    I think media channels are actually being funded by left or the right side of the politics parties. And that goes to show you that it's not really easy to get real information. Most of the information that comes to us has no reality. In fact that reality is phased out against us. So you can see that we should never trust their side of reasoning. Most of them are just lies.

    "Rachel Levine Calls For Tech Companies To Control 'Misinformation' On Gender Affirming Care"

    https://www.zerohedge.com/political...control-minsinformation-gender-affirming-care

    "Biden's trans Assistant Secretary for Health and honorary four-star admiral, Rachel Levine (formerly known as Richard Levine) has called for Big Tech companies to control 'misinformation' on gender affirmation care (hormone treatments and sex change surgeries). This is yet another example of open attempts by government officials to demand tech conglomerates and social media websites enforce the establishment narrative while censoring anyone who disagrees.

    "Recent Twitter File data dumps indicate extensive collusion between government agencies like the FBI and social media in an attempt to silence dissent on hotly debated topics from the existence of the Hunter Biden laptop to the draconian covid pandemic response. In most cases, the government has sought to silence facts and evidence and label accurate arguments as 'misinformation.' Another issue which leftist officials seem to obsess over is the trans identity movement.

    "Representatives claim to engage in activism in the name of civil rights, but trans people have the same exact rights and legal protections as anyone else in the US and equality is already a fact of life for them. Instead, their goals are more akin to special treatment and extraordinary privileges well beyond the rights enshrined in the US Constitution or the law. It is hard to think of any other group in the western world that gets more attention and protection from government and corporations than trans people. In essence, they demand the power to control people's speech, language and thoughts in the name of insulating trans people's feelings and mental health.

    "Rachel Levine's comments on 'misinformation' are clearly in response to the massive push-back coming from the public when it comes to the numerous oversteps by the trans community and the government.

    "The establishment has recently lost control of the narrative and they are seeking to get it back."

    "The Hamas Links of CNN’s Gaza Freelancer"

    https://honestreporting.com/exposed-the-hamas-links-of-cnn-journalist-abdel-qader-al-sabbah/

    Begin quote

    A CNN freelance journalist in Gaza, Abdel Qader Sabbah, photographed himself with a senior Hamas leader, served in a Hamas-run body to which he also provided work, praised terrorists, and shared anti-Israeli propaganda online, an HonestReporting investigation revealed.

    Throughout the Israel-Hamas war, CNN has given a prominent platform to news reports by Sabbah, who has also worked for the Associated Press, and the exposure of his links to the terror group casts a long shadow over the network’s vetting procedures and journalistic standards.

    Sabbah, who describes himself on Facebook as a freelance journalist, director and photographer, has proudly shared posts showing he had connections to Hamas figures and institutions run by the terror group.

    In 2018, he posted a selfie taken with none other than senior Hamas leader Mahmoud A-Zahar, who had called for world domination with “no Zionists.”

    In the photo, the two men are seen smiling, and the post caption reads in Arabic: “This morning, with commander Abu Khaled Al-Zahar, literature teacher…”

    Sabbah — whose Facebook bio mentions “military service” in 2013 — also posted a photo of himself wearing the uniform of the “General Training Directorate,” a body that’s officially under the Palestinian Authority’s police and Interior Ministry. In Gaza, however, these government agencies are de facto run by Hamas.

    In 2013, then Hamas prime minister Ismail Haniyeh paid an official visit to the training directorate, where he scrutinized an honor guard and “praised the role of the General Directorate…in developing and qualifying the cadres of the Ministry of Interior and National Security.”

    It appears that Sabbah also provided work to the Hamas-run body. In March 2023, he boasted online about making a promotional video for the Directorate’s academy, which according to MEMRI, trains members of Hamas’ security apparatuses. His video was shared on the official page of the Hamas-run interior ministry.

    But Sabbah did not just share personal posts and selfies on his social media. He also regularly praised terrorists, shared propaganda videos by Hamas’ armed wing, and expressed anti-Israeli slurs.

    Sabbah also had no qualms about sharing media censorship instructions during the 2021 conflict with Israel. One of the guidelines he had shared read in Arabic: “Not filming the sites of the fighters, and the places where rockets and mortar shells are launched.”

    A few days earlier, he shared a post that read in Arabic: “May God curse the raped Zionists.”

    Did CNN bother checking Sabbah’s background before hiring him? Sadly, there are only two bad answers to this question:

    Yes, which means the network knowingly uses biased reporters.
    No, which means the network hasn’t done its due diligence.

    What the network did bother doing was highlighting Sabbah’s agenda-driven work, which included faulty reports on the non-existent Gaza “famine” or on the death toll of Gazan journalists, without mentioning that some were affiliated with Hamas and other proscribed terror organizations.

    The same questions apply to AP, which according to its database used Sabbah’s photos from Gaza in October-November 2023. These included destroyed buildings and wounded Palestinians in a hospital. It’s unclear whether Sabbah still works for the agency.

    Do the media hide reality from us? Good question. The media has an agenda, without doubt. This has been in place over much of history. When the "Penny Sheets" first started to appear in the UK (and France) they were political pamphlets usually lampooning people in the upper levels of society. Much of the trouble stirred up in the French Revolution was due to the "Penny Sheets" (UK name) being circulated in Paris. The "Penny Sheets" existed to ridicule people and make people aware of the less seemly" goings on" in society. They were the forerunners of modern newspapers and even today it is possible to buy one newspaper with a significantly different political stance from another. Imagine if you will, pro Trump literature compared to pro Biden literature. Or even as we have a UK election in 48 hours political flyers begging for peoples votes for one party or another.

    Media bias which originated with media in the form of "Penny Sheets" continues to the day in our modern televised media. In the UK with have GB News, very pro-garage and anti Starter and the BBC, very pro Starter and anti Farage.

    In short, yes the media do hide reality from us, perhaps the bigger question ought to be "do the media hide issues of national importance from us"......

    When I read a news story out of any national source, I then go to the local news or wherever I can find witnesses to the event. I want to know the true details. I want to know what it was to be there and see it, smell it. In my own life experiences, I've smelled hell. Watching those who you care about die is transformative.

    The circumstances leading up to news events are rarely those reported by the MSM (mainstream media; the MSM is politically biased, have an agenda, and are particularly unintelligent; how many have real degrees; engineering, healthcare, anything truly real, or were in the military ... few; they are shallow and inferior). Truth be told, MSM reports I read as amusements. Yet, the yet-full-adult segment of my being is angered by them. When working with the mentally ill, my inner self would sometimes grow angry. One has to suppress one's lower nature.

    some UK newspapers support Labour, some support the Conservatives, the BBC is very biased and anti British, Channel 4 is trying to get garbage on Farage, and so it goes on.
