Stuck In Infotainment Hell: America Need a 'News' Revolution'


                                         Good Day World!

It's bad.

We can't turn to MSNBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, FOX, or any other so-called news channel because they aren't providing any real news anymore!

Donald Trump's latest stupid remarks dominate the airways in spite of what else is going on in the country, or the world.
  
"Trump took a dump in a golden toilet today..."

"Donald Trump said president Obama is the founder of ISIS..."

You get the idea.

We have to face it, infotainment TV has taken over because it gets higher ratings than just boring real news stories. That's our reality today when we turn on the boob tube (there's never been a better nickname for TV).

Corporations own the airways. They really don't want you to be informed because you may find out something bad about their business practises.

Ready to give up and swear off so-called news stations yet? I'm not. 

I'd like to see a grassroots effort by the American people to establish a real news channel funded by only donations from the public. 

Not a combination of donations and government grants like PBS gets. No other source of income would be acceptable.

The staff and editors will be held under scrutiny daily - all stories to be fact checked and vetted before they are released.

With social media today it's not too far-fetched to think a group of serious professional journalists could put something like this together. They could even Crowd Fund to get started.

I have a hunch it would become the most watched channel of all without any corporate influence or advertisers stuffing stories.

What do you think?

Time for me to walk on down the road...
