For quite some time now, there has been another news source for people to pay attention to, and this source is often called the alternative media. Unlike the mainstream media, this source generally disseminates their news online.
So, if someone wants to hear more from this source of information, they only need to have some kind of device. They will then be able to read articles and to watch videos, along with tuning into live streams.
It can be normal for someone to believe that while the mainstream media is full of lies, the alternative media is only interested in the truth. One is then real news and the other is ‘fake news’.
If this is the case, there will be no reason for them to question what this source comes out with. Thus, their guard will only need to be up if they are paying attention to the mainstream media.
The mainstream media would have given them drops of truth, but the alternative media will give them wave after wave of truth. They can even have moments when they wonder why anyone would pay attention to any other source.
One is going to have a direct line to the truth and these people will be being deceived by the people at the top. The news that they are exposed to will be brought to them by people who have no connection to these people.
However, while there will be people who only pay attention to one of these news sources, there are going to be others who believe that one is no better (or worse) than the other. One could be seen as being full of lies, while the other could be seen as being sprinkled with truth.
As the alternative media reveals more, it is then easy to come to the conclusion that this source is radically different to the other. In a way, it will be like having a friend who more or less always lies and another friend who only lies at certain times.
The trouble is that if someone only compares what they are hear through the alternative media with what is going on in the mainstream media, there will be no reason for them to realise what is taking place. So much of what they hear from the alternative media will reflect what is going on in the world, yet it will typically only go so far.
Taking this into account, if someone has been starved of real information due to paying attention to the mainstream media for most of their life, the alternative media will be extremely refreshing. Still, if one just stays with this and doesn’t go any further, they will be like a fly that has been caught in a web that is made of rotting meet – if will be better than a normal web, but the fly will still be trapped.
They will be believe that they know exactly what is going on and this will be the perfect scenario for the people at the top. These people would have known that there would be people who would question things, with this being the reason why they had to come up with a way to keep these kinds of people distracted.
The people who work for them can seem to just come out nowhere and appear to be different, creating the impression that they are nothing like the people who work for the mainstream media. For example, they may just create videos in a small room or hide their face.
A lot of the mainstream media is left leaning, and they are usually in support of Islam. The alternative media, on the other hand, is usually right leaning and they are often critical of Islam.
Along with this, the former often criticises Israel, while the latter rarely has anything bad to say about it. In fact, they often have plenty of good things to say about this part of the world.
Ergo, it can be normal for someone to believe that Islam is not the problem if they pay attention to the mainstream media and for someone to believe that it is the problem if they listen to the alternative media. What’s interesting about this is that there are a number of people who are part of the alternative media who started off with different views.
At the beginning these people didn’t have a lot to say about Islam; what they primarily spoke about was Zionism. The question is then: did these people change their views because they were wrong or was there another reason why this happened?
Lies, Lies, and More Lies
One then has to wonder why so much attention has been placed on this religion in recent years; is this religion - along with the people who practice it - being used to distract the masses from what is actually going on behind the scenes? This is very similar to what can happen in an abusive relationship, where the abuser does everything they can to make people believe that they are the victim and their partner is the one who is the perpetrator.
What is clear is that a lot of the alternative media sources are not going to take a closer look at this issue. They have found their target and all of their energy will continue to be directed towards it.
Due to the amount of lies that are told by both the mainstream media and the alternative media, it can be incredible difficult to find out what is true and what isn’t. Nevertheless, what is not as difficult is for someone to define how they behave and whether or not they will get caught up what these sources are selling.
Through how they behave and what they focus on, they can make the world a better place or they can add more drama to it. This is something that one has to decide for themselves.
