Unless you’re an old school boomer generation consumer of traditional news platforms, or quite frankly to say unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few years, you’ve probably noticed that there’s a new age of journalism currently under way in the world today.
With the birth of each new day, with every rise of our sun on the horizon, more & more individual entities are jumping into the ring to fill the massive void that was once occupied by so called journalists.
Millions of people are waking up to the harsh reality that they’ve been lied to & manipulated on a day to day basis by political hacks & pundits disguised as journalists in the rapidly declining Main Stream Media.
My question for you is, why are every day ordinary civilian writers becoming more & more credible as legitimate sources of news, while traditional Main Stream Media “so called journalists” are simultaneously losing the same credibility at an exponential rate?
I believe that the answer to that question is twofold. Firstly, for the first time in history, there exists a global platform for every individual voice on Earth to be potentially heard all over the world. That platform is of course the wonderful worldwide web… the internet.
At the point of it’s growth from adolescence into adulthood, the internet platform held ample space for every soul on Earth to speak his or her mind, using any & every word under God to share their thoughts.
Unfortunately, the God given human right of free speech, free press, the first amended to The Constitution Of The United States Of America, however you choose to phrase it, is not universally embraced by many of the dark horse, of whom are stubbornly perched in power atop many of these internet platforms. Yes, the rulers of the social media giants.
I’m not going to get into free speech censorship on such social platforms (conservative censorship in particular), because in that specific topic lies sufficient material for not only it’s own article, but probably it’s own blog all together. So we’ll save that topic for another story.
Fortunately, in contrast, whenever one tree falls, another grows in it’s stead, which leads me to the backbone of this article. Why are up & coming novice civilian amateur journalists gaining such strength & momentum in today’s world of news? We’ve already touched on the vehicle that drives such momentum, but what fuel is thwarting it’s seemingly unstoppable forward progression?
I believe the answer to that underlying question to be quite simple. They have very little to lose and most importantly, everything to gain.
For example, let’s take a look at FOX NEWS. If you’re even remotely awake to the events that are transpiring in today’s so called journalism, it should come to no surprise that in the wake of The Mueller Report, the ratings of FOX NEWS are skyrocketing, while the ratings of others such as Very Fake News CNN, MSNPC, & the like, are simultaneously plummeting.
What’s more interesting to me, is the fact that though the ratings of FOX NEWS have nearly tripled in recent months, I firmly believe that they could be significantly higher. That’s right, higher… much higher.
Unfortunately for FOX NEWS, they may have a strong advantage over their adversary Fake News networks, but civilian journalistic voices such as mine & so many others, have an even stronger advantage… we have very little to lose.
As the events of the past two and a half years of The Collusion Delusion have baited the MSM political hack networks into self destruction mode, it’s now more important than ever for more credible networks such as FOX NEWS to be extremely cautious not to nibble on the same poisonous bait.
With that being said, with the emergence of every new piece of the puzzle that reveals the suspected truth, FOX NEWS must handle such puzzle pieces as if they were brittle pieces of shattered glass. Not only do they have to get it right… they can’t, under any circumstance, afford to get it wrong. For them, everything is on the line. As they have called out the Fake News Hacks as being such, they know that all of their chips are now on the table. They know that they can’t, under any circumstances, lose this pot in the big game of Hold ‘em or Fold ‘em, that is The World Series Of Journalism.
For us, on the other hand, what have we got to lose? Being scrutinized on Facebook for getting the story half right or half wrong? Do I really care if I have to redact a statement in this story if & when I make some sort of amateur journalistic error? I don’t think so. I’ll definitely survive and I certainly won’t be in jeopardy of losing my primary sources of income (which is not journalism).
My inspiration for writing this piece, as well as my reasoning for initiating this blog, can be credited to the recent episode #972 of The Dan Bongino Show. I hope that you don’t mind the plug, Dan… but yes, you were my inspiration for this entire blog. Let me continue by explaining precisely why.
In episode #972 of The Dan Bongino Show, Dan kicks it off by conducting a telephone interview with George Papadapoulous at the beginning of his live daily broadcast.
At first, it appeared to be just another awesome broadcast discussing the top political reveals of the day, until Papadapoulous dropped a huge bombshell, that’s right, BOMBSHELL on Dan and his viewers.
The essence of the episode was of course The Russian Collusion Delusion Obama Clinton Spying Treason Scandal Boomerang, as I and probably every other fellow viewer was hoping & expecting. Only in this episode, George broke fresh news to us that I do not believe had been previously reported by any Main Stream Media outlets… neither the Fake News outlets, nor FOX NEWS.
If you haven’t watched episode #972 on Dan’s show, I strongly urge you to do so, along with all previous nine hundred and seventy one amazing episodes. I’m not going to stray off subject by going into the details of the bombshell on episode #972, but it’s sufficient to say that it was breaking news on a social media platform that at the time had, not to my knowledge, been previously reported by any major news entities.
That to me is absolutely huge. To take it up a few notches, you can get on social media and find countless examples of true breaking news that isn’t being spoon fed to you on your television during moments of prime time couch surfing.
Pick a platform, any platform… I don’t care. Whether it be BoobTube, FakeBook, Twister, InstaScam, you name it… if you truly search for the truth, it’s all out there.
There are truth seeking Patriots, devoting blood, sweat & tears on a daily basis to provide you with the unvarnished reality of the events that are transpiring all over the world as we speak. They have very little to lose, and everything to gain. Those very notions alone should give you amazing insight to what the future holds for the “New Age Of Journalists”, as well as support my theory as to why I believe that non credential novice amateur journalists will rapidly rise to become the cream of the crop of what once was and what will soon be again, true journalism in the harsh face of reality.
