Thousands Protest Press Credibility in ‘March Against Mainstream Media’

It would be interesting to know the reactions of the regular media staff who really have no clue that the news is manufactured, spun and controlled; the ones who just read what they’re given and don’t question anything, because they are as deceived as the mass population. They believe they are doing a good job.   ~ BP

Thousands of people in the UK and US united in their rejection of mainstream media in a mass protest. Protesters targeted the headquarters of media giants like Fox News, the BBC and NBS, decrying their narrow coverage of world affairs.

The March Against Mainstream Media (MAMM) organized the international protest via social media and challenged the established media to cover it.

In a statement posted on the MAMM website, the organization said big media outlets had two options: “report on the fact that thousands of people are currently protesting outside of their buildings because they are keeping important news from the public’s eyes,” or ignore them.

Across America people turned out brandishing banners, condemning established news channels.

“Boycott the media!” one banner read in High Point California, while in Kansas city supporters of the movement wearing Anonymous masks delivered the message “America deserves the truth!”

A recurrent theme that cropped up a number of times in the US protests was the media’s coverage of the stricken nuclear plants in Fukushima Japan that were damaged in the 2010 earthquake-triggered tsunami.

“The radiation from that plant is going to reach us and affect us, not just in California but worldwide.  How is it going to affect us, how is it going to affect our water, our food supply, and our way of life?” said one protester to KMPH Fox 24.

Meanwhile in London, supporters of the anti-establishment movement gathered outside the offices of the BBC in a sit-in-style protest.

Jet Barnett, one of the organizers of MAMM spoke to RT and said the march was a sign that people were beginning to look for their news in alternative media.

“We want mainstream media to listen, to let them know that the people are finally coming together and influence them to make a change,” said Barnett to RT, adding that the organization is fighting to restore journalist integrity.

Confidence in US mainstream media has been declining sharply over the past couple of years with only 44 percent of Americans trusting mass media, according to a Gallup poll in September. The figures for this year are a slight improvement on 2012 when the survey saw trust in the media fall to a record low of 40 percent.

However, a large amount of Americans (46 percent) believe media has become too liberal, compared to only 13 percent who regard mainstream news coverage as overly conservative.

Gallup’s statistics show the steady decline in media trust in America from 2005, with Democrats reportedly having the most confidence in American news outlets.




Judge Jeanine’s Rant on Fox; What SHE Said!

Thanks, Peter and Ed, for sharing on The One People Global.

Well, why don’t you tell us what you REALLY think, Judge?  I was wondering when she was going to get around to the Peace Prize. She didn’t disappoint.  Must watch.

I think the goddess energies are gaining momentum.  ;0)

Shock Shake-Up Reported at Fox News with Megyn Kelly

While taking in Megyn’s segments I’ve had some admiration and hope that she may be one of the women who takes us across the barrier from blocked news to open, truthful facts. Beauty, blonde and brains? We’ll see… things have to shift soon and I don’t like what I see from Rachel Maddow and Piers Morgan.

Shock Shake-Up Reported at Fox News With Megyn Kelly

UPDATE, 2:26 p.m. A Fox News spokesperson has issued the following statement:

“We will neither confirm nor deny any programming schedule changes. As previously stated, the network has signed long-term deals with Megyn Kelly, Bret Baier, Shepard Smith, Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity and Greta Van Susteren.”

Megyn Kelly will be taking the 9 p.m. ET Fox News slot currently occupied by Sean Hannity, according to the Drudge Report.

The announcement is reportedly set for later this month and would constitute the network’s first major primetime change in a decade.

“It’s all about Megyn,” a Fox “insider” told Drudge. “She is the new face of cable news. She has it all!”

Fox News announced last month that Kelly was moving to the network’s primetime lineup but did not announce a new show for her. Fox said at the time it had signed long-term deals with all of its evening anchors and hosts, including Hannity.

A Fox News spokeswoman did not immediately return a request for comment from TheBlaze.

Kelly left her daytime show “America Live with Megyn Kelly” to go on maternity leave last month. She gave birth to her third child on July 26.

If confirmed at 9 p.m., Kelly would be up against hosts Piers Morgan on CNN and Rachel Maddow on MSNBC.

Morgan issued a challenge to his potential timeslot rival Thursday afternoon, tweeting, “Bring it on @megynkelly.”

One hour after breaking the news on his website, Matt Drudge took to his personal Twitter account to opine about Fox News head Roger Ailes: “Megyn Kelly to 9PM on FOXNEWS means different things to different people. In the end, it’s Ailes doing what he does best: Broadcasting…”
