    "Newsweek Lied, People.... didn't Die?"

    More Possible Unsubstanciated Stories

    Overreaction and jumping on the "Newsweek lied, People died" bandwagon, could make many many people look like really big jerks.

    Cyber, media is what has revolutionized the world. The speedy spread of news, commuincations, information and events from around the world in minutes are the foundations of many nations today. Including the U.S. Without the media we'd be no where near as advanced as we are. You owe a lot of your livliehood to the media.

    I think I'll owe those who have fallen for my country for my livliehood. And I dont think the "media" has advanced us so much that are military falls behind. When our military dump technology..then the media grows like a virus all over it, using it for its on needs to make a ole' mighty dollar.
    And I think leaders revolutionize the world..with their people following them. I dont see a country following WBBJ out of Jackson. People dont follow a bunch of subject grabbers, and title makers..they follow courage, and wisdom.
    I'm surprised Anne..you must be tired.

    Did that guy say this;

    "A world with much less media...ahh, looks like a great place."

    If not..why are you wasting forum space by posting a nazi? Perhaps people you look up to?

    Hi Cyber,

    Llad is just messing with you.

    Little nazi Joe in the picture, was Hilters Minister of Propaganda and helped to manipulate millions of people through the media into doing stuff they probably wouldn't normally do .... like trying to take to take over the world.

    Regards
    Syxx

    The invention of the printing press, hence the beginning of the media as it was back then, heralded the start of the modern world. The advances since, telecommunications and the like, have done more to advance western nations than any other single factor. Yes, people follow leaders, and people follow courage, but the readily available level of information to people everywhere has educated the masses and allowed a level of cooperation between all people no matter what the distance. Leaders may begin a revolution, but no matter who that leader is, he or she is still just one person. Media signifies the communication between countless people and their cooperation and debate. That's something no leader could do by himself. I suppose one could say that leaders start revolutions, the media makes them known. War may create nations but it does not make them great. Not only that, but a great many tragedies and scandals have become known solely through the use and free abilities of the media. It lends a level of accountability not available through official bureaucracy. Like it or not, free and available media is an essential part of democracy. Without it, there is none.

    Right on Anakanaspdf...

    Get the picture fellas? When you wish to consider restricting the media as Cyber stated ... or limiting free speech and information ... then you are contemplating taking away an integral part of our freedom; our democracy, and gravitating toward totalitarianism.

    Sure I was messing with you Cyber. I did it for the reason stated above. Cripes, if nothing else, maybe you learned a tiny fragment of WW2 history today.


    Steel, Kawaii ... have a nice day! :p

    Never said anything about free speech or gathering information was wrong..a person should be allowed to do this when they feel they need to. But a media who makes up lies should be punished becasue they reach so many. The media destroys anyone they find a glitch on..and that person goes down in flames...but when the media gets a glitch...ohh no, dont mess with your freedoms!..let us liiive!..FREEDOM OF SPEECH!......please.
    Soung like a whole lot of HOOPLA!
    Sounds like a whole lot of..HOOPLA!
    Sounds like a whole like of...HOOPLA!...HOOPLA! *hits screaming guy with a brick

    Sounds like a whole lot of hoopla if ya ask me. ;)

    Kaboom!

    The Newsweek article was merely the match that lit the fuse to the powderkeg that was already in place thanks in large part to a government that was dead set on carrying out a plan in spite of evidence to the contrary. You can't blame the media for the failings of a government (you can blame it for the failings of society, where we gravitate towards stories of public humilation and disgrace instead of real news).
