I was watching the commercial media coverage for part of the day yesterday; obviously I had to constantly change the channel because it was so crappy so I didn’t catch all of it but if they followed the same pattern my best guess is that they didn’t provide any coverage to the Inaugural "I have a drone" die-in that was taking place. I didn’t find out about it until I found the following, reported by Bruce Gagnon.
By now it should be obvious to those that are paying attention that the comercial media doesn’t report more than a minimal fraction of the regular protests that are going on in this country. If they did then it would be obvious that the government isn’t responding to the will of the people at all.
Bruce Gagnon isn’t the only one that reports on some of these protest that the traditional media ignore but it should clear that more people should be paying more attention to those that do whether it is Bruce or some of the other truly sincere reporters that try to get the news out that the corporations don’t want you to hear.
There was at least one other of these die-in’s which I didn’t hear about when it happened from the comercial media; it took place last November and if you click on the picture above you’ll find the story behind that.
It makes me wonder how much else I and many other people are missing becasue it isn’t being widely reported while the comercial media spends an enormous amount of time focusing on the hype and what gown Michelle is wearing or Obama’s now famous “unscripted moment."
I doubt if I’m the only one to consider the possibilty that this “unscripted moment" seems to be folowing a script and even if it is an “unscripted moment" it is also being used for great propaganda.
Edit: I didn’t initially realize how much there was to the Lupe Fiasco fiasco or even who Lupe Fiasco was until I Googled a little more about it following Jack’s comment; Info Wars reported Rapper Has Set Cut Short At Inaugural Event Following Anti-Obama Rant
The following are a few additional articles that are worth looking at. The Lupe Fiasco fiasco at Slate
The last story on this listed had it’s video withdrawn for copyright reasons; save one of the other copys before the thought police come and shut them down for reasons that don’t officially ahve anything to do with politics or censorship. Unofficially, well you figure it out.
