A Letter from the Editor: The Alternative Media Is Even Less Trustworthy Than Big Media

Written by Print  E-mail

Thomas CorriherI write this with a heavy heart, concerning the state of things, but write this I must.  Some years ago, I started on this whole journalism thing with the close help of Sarah C. Corriher.  We did it, not because we really wanted to, but because we had to.  Old fashioned, investigative journalism is all-but-dead, and quite a few people are living and dying horribly as a result.  You need not look further than the diseased and chemically laden walking dead surrounding you, every time that you leave your home.  Things should not be as they are, and we decided to do something about it; at least for anyone who could put faith into our mission.  It is not one that we take lightly, for we have invested our savings, our personal honor, and the very safety of our family for it.  Being an honest investigative reporter nowadays requires that one become a soldier in an information war, and this is largely why so few modern people do it.  It ranges far from the easy path.  Sarah can likewise attest to the sacrifices that we have made, or how vicious I can become whenever she lazily forgets to check her facts.  This is an old dance that is rarely observed in the largest news networks of this twisted age.  Along the way, we have made plenty of people angry. We consider angering people to be a job requirement.  Being a good journalist, as it was once defined, absolutely means being a trouble-maker.  We are not team-players for any corporation, and we do not prostitute ourselves for either popularity or product endorsement deals.  Good luck in finding these principles elsewhere.

Our character and journalistic ethics were tested tonight.  We were asked to be guests on an Internet audio show with several other "experts", pundits, and "popular people".  I grew out of the whole "popularity" thing before high (military) school, but plenty of those involved with alternative media embrace such shallowness wholeheartedly, and they dream of someday being one of those elusive "preps".  I wish I were kidding, really.

Our character test came when we were pressured by a (former) friend of dprogram.net to join the typical pile-on of spreading terror about radiation from Japan.  I believe this is when both of us first experienced the sick feeling.  We have written about the radiation situation before; and for the most part, there really is no situation.  Yes, there actually is a slight elevation in radiation levels on the west coast of the U.S., but you'd find yourself in much greater health peril driving by cellular towers.  Unless you are already closely on the brink of developing a cancer (so close that it would almost certainly happen regardless of the radiation), then you have very little to worry about, and our media peers have been disgustingly lying about it as loudly as possible.  We studied the U.S. military documents on atomic warfare testing, so we did the painful homework.  That's called journalism, and some of our so-called peers in the alternative media really ought to learn something about it.

How is the alternative press any better, since it so readily spreads disinformation for the sake of higher ratings and pushing "special products" that will supposedly save us from an armageddon that will never happen?  If any truth to their version of bad science, bad research, and dishonest journalism existed, then the U.S. would have been devastated by the greater radiation bombardment that occurred after the atomic attacks against Japan.  The new so-called high efficiency light bulbs present a much greater risk of radiation injury to virtually everyone except the Japanese, but these sorry journalists don't talk about them because that topic isn't useful for their fear-mongering, so they concentrate on Japan instead.

The scam that we were pressured to partake in is being perpetuated by some rather high profile alternative sites, with people whom we considered to be friends.  They'll just have to hate us, because we are not about to begin terrorizing you, lying for sleazy self-promotions, product plugs, or even to be one of the popular kids.  It's not the way we operate.

For now, make note of those "news" sites which are flagrantly terrorizing you, and remember their lack of character.  There really are monsters out there, and sometimes we don't see the ones in our own back yards.

    Please give us names and data to support your claims, otherwise it's just another empty warning. Thnaks!

    "Another empty warning"?

    It is insulting when a manipulator considers us to be as stupid as that statement implies. This is especially true when the actual article itself was about how we are fed-up with dishonest people who try to manipulate our community. I recommend visiting Natural News, where you can hang with your kind. We have higher standards in this neighborhood, so please move along.

    Wow these people! I wonder if some of the are shills for the very evil they seem to expose.

    I hope they are not popular in the alternative media.

    To create false fears in people about what is to come might lead to self-fulfilling prophecy. They are only helping the elites by doing that.

    The very evil people we are dealing with use a lot of witchcraft, and creating doomsday movies, literatures, and comics are one way they "manifest" evil into reality. It is a form of witchcraft!

    Everything that is every shown on the screen has been materialized/manifested in real world today, including flying saucers, hybrid (GE modified humanswith cybernetic implants, Battles: Los Angelas), mind controlled slaves... etc

    To me it shows that words aren't just words, movies aren't just movies, imagination isn't just imaginations. They have creative power.

    I think one reason why the elites allow alternative media such as the so and so to create tons of fears is because it is helping their cause.

    What we need is a can-win attitude based on informed fact. We need more courage, honesty, and other virtues. The more people convey these qualities in media the better. This is a media warfare, also a spiritual one.

  • Jack Verbeek  - who to trust

    Thomas you've hit the nail fairly well on the head.
    If I believed one particular alt health news site (that I suspect you're referring to) I'd be suiting up right now in my radiation proof suit - and I live in Australia.
    It's a tough gig tho, finding "pure" information. MSM is superficial and panders to it's corporate masters.
    Spooks, mis-informants and fools need to be weeded out when one uses alternative news sources.
    One can only do that over time, it's not always immediately obvious what the motivations of alt sites are.
    I'd agree that there is some unjustified hysteria on alt sites regarding the "radiation issue" but having said that I also think that there is good enough reason for monitoring the situation and having some concern.
    I appreciate that you've stood up for what you don't believe in (does that make sense?), keep up the good work.

  • nines  - don't be vicious

    It's hard enough without dealing with viciousness at home. If you can recognize you are being vicious about her failure to check facts, you should quickly apologize and admit that it's NO kind of cure for the very ailment of which you complain.

    I don't think you are a better person for viciously enforcing fact checking. We all, of course, love rigorously enforced fact checking, but viciousness not so much... not at all.

    If you mean to make a better world, learning not to let your anger infect everything you do is a good place to start.

    Thomas was being overly self-critical. We take fact checking very seriously, and the research involved is very tiring at times. 'Vicious' was an exaggeration, though. 'Psychotic' would be a better word. Just kidding.

  • Igg

    I think only a dodo would drag that issue (of all things) out of what Thomas had to say.

    YOU WILL KNOW THEM BY THEIR FRUIT!!!

    ALLS IT TAKES IS A LITTLE CHRISTIAN SPIRTUAL DISCERNMENT AND EYES TO SEE. YOU CAN EASILY TELL WHO IS FULL OF COW DUNG, AND WHO IS TELLING THE TRUTH.

  • Clover  - Study the Trivium, Thank You, and Magic

    Learn how to spot Logical Fallacies and then you can start wading through the media muck and mazes out there and find your way to who is being honest and well-researched. Know the grammar, the logic, and the rhetoric being used. It will help you to become discerning.

    Thank you for doing your homework, and it would be nice to have the names of those you mention in the article so that we can be wary of their other claims and messages, but I understand if you don't.

    And thanks to the commenter about media being a magical warfare in which our imaginations have been hijacked and our emotions played upon (a fallacy, by the way...). This subject also needs to be talked about and researched in a serious manner.

  • Bob C  - You tell the truth

    Good article, Thomas. You may not remember me...I debated with you awhile back over irradiated food. Anyway, I have close personal friends who analyze environmental samples for a living. They have been looking specifically for increases in radionuclides....and have seen none. Also, if you look at www.radiationnetwork.com you will see an adhoc network of real-time background beta/gamma readings across the country, measured in counts per minute. Granted, there are some radionuclides that will not show up there, but there will always be some in the mix that will show up. Therefore, no increases seen in those detectors can rule out the whole mix. About a week after the Fukishima accident, there was a amall increase in those readings, and then they went back down to normal....that's where they are today.

  • Rose Marie

    Thanks for the article. I was never that concerned about the radioactive scare - what other concerns are there that are inappropriate or inaccurate? Thanks.

  • Andy Savage

    Well said... people need to realize this.

    I'd like to point out that radiation from nuclear waste, 'accidents' and weapons is not comparable to that from cell towers etc, at least not in the health risk context. We don't generally inhale cell towers, or ingest them.

    The particles get into your body and zap your cells constantly at microscopic distances. Comparing meter levels in the environment is misleading about the actual health risk, which in nuclear contamination is more internal than external.

    The industry uses people's ignorance of this to lead them to wrong conclusions.
