Bias and bungled reporting on US news networks are behind plummeting audience numbers, according to the Gallup Poll. RT’s Marina Portnaya looks at a cutting-edge project that’s encouraging ordinary Americans to drive their country’s news agenda instead.

When it comes to Americans having trust in the mainstream media, the numbers don’t lie. According to a recent Gallup poll, only 21 percent of Americans have confidence in television News. The decrease in viewership has become an alarming trend, and RT’s Liz Wahl has more.

I realize that maybe 0.0005% of my readers have the time to dig up these obscure statistics and that there are smart asses who think that the masses follow this data but the truth is that is why I provide it. The smart asses proclaim “anyone can read it” yet the truth is the MSM and BSM (Bull S**t media) wants to keep the average American from seeing the truth and that is because the truth hurts.
Thus the question is quite simple:
Actually, it should be “where da jobs at” but Blazing Saddles will do for this discussion and to make everyone snicker.
To break down the data, it takes a moment to dig up some obscure points of information from the BLS reports, and as usual, mine is non-seasonally adjusted so as to reflect current reality, not statistical whimsical nonsense.
I. Employment v. Population Ratio
Instead of focusing on the total number of people not in the labor force first, let us take a look at the ratio versus total population which is more indicative of how pathetic this economic expansion has been;
The above chart demonstrates that since the Jimmy Carter era economic collapse has the U.S. economy not been able to increase employment at a rate to offset the decline in the economy overall. In fact it was the “Reagan Recovery” starting in 1983 which sparked historic levels of economic expansion which since have collapsed to 1930′s levels under the malfeasance of the Bush and Obama regimes.
Yet nobody will acknowledge that the chart above is a true indication of the total collapse of the employment creation machine which will sustain America into this century because of an imposition of anti-capitalist policies since late 2008.

Misdirection by MSM as Gold Moves Towards The Banking System
Despite what the Main Stream Media (MSM) or “Financial Pundits” tell you, the gold bull market is far from over. In fact, it is just starting, in our opinion. While the misdirected financial world tell you that gold is in a bubble and it has burst, the central bankers and government organizations all know it is far from over. In fact, gold is moving towards the banking system and not away from it. We all know that many central banks are now net buyers of gold and their holdings are increasing as their need to diversify away from risky assets and foreign bonds only grows.
Central banks around the world are continuing to stock up on gold. We can now add Kazakhstan’s central bank to the grow list of bankers wanting to hold gold as a part of their currency reserve. The Kazakh central bank intends to have 20% of reserves in gold, this is up from the current 14-15% currently held. They plan to purchase 20 tonnes of gold this year, mostly from local producers. They also mentioned a few weeks ago that they would cut their Euro holding to 25 % from 30%. We can also add Kazakhstan to the growing number of central bankers which are building up gold holdings including China, Russia, Mexico, Colombia and South Korea.
The price of gold is now hitting all time highs in India, one of the biggest buyers of gold around the world. Prices have reached an all-time high of $544.74 US (Rs 30420) per 10 grams. With a slowing economy and low demand for the Indian rupee, it has been losing value lately and still remains weak. However, gold demand is still robust even at these elevated prices as investors in India still consider gold a safe haven as it counters the effects of inflation and exchange rate fluctuations.
Over the past five years, gold has provided Indian investors with a 27.19% annualized return versus a pathetic 2.67% in the equity market. This trend and move to gold has only grown in the last year. Gold assets under management by funds have increased almost 100% $1.83 billion by April 2012, last year the value was $981 million. In 2011, the gold ETFs in India saw a net inflow of $725 million. For thousands of years the Indian culture has had an affinity for gold, and that will never change, and neither will their demand for physical at elevated prices. Why? Indians understand that gold is money and a true form of saving. It’s the only way to protect assets and wealth from government theft, something the West is still learning.

[NaturalNews] How does the Media lie? How do the major networks mislead you into buying things you normally wouldn’t buy, or NOT buying things you would regularly buy? How does the media convince you so well, to change your mind and spend money supporting the wrong causes, the wrong “cures,” and worst of all, the wrong food and medicine?
Let it be told that the media in the United States has been suppressing natural cures, vitamins, herbs, and supplements for over 75 years, knowing there’s hardly any money to be made from healthy people, especially compared to diseased ones. Most people know that television and radio talk shows are full of crap when it comes to nutritional advice, or do they? The media monopolies are quickly becoming experts at deception, and finding helpful information via the networks, CNN, and talk shows is impossible; it’s just a labyrinth of misinformation and “close-by-choice” sales tactics, where the only options presented are all bad ones, and you’re supposed to still make a decision where and HOW to spend your hard earned dollars.
ABC lies about supplements
October 10, 2011: ABC covers supplements: Just 8 months ago, ABC presented the findings of a “collection of research” showing that people who take dietary supplements are getting “few health benefits in return.” The study’s lead author, Jaakko Mursu, pronounced the overall message, which is a bold faced lie: Here’s her overall message to the millions watching ABC and putting their faith in major network’s presentations and “informative” shows that influence mass consumption in America: Mursu said, “I would conclude that supplements are not protective against chronic diseases,” and “In some cases they may be harmful, especially if used for a long time.”
She went on to claim that, “News about the benefits and risks of dietary supplements seems to change by the week.” Maybe that’s because it’s hard to track all the lies the media spits out. The shows main goal was to crush the reality that antioxidants like beta carotene and vitamin E are major players in maintaining optimum health.
Then, Dr. Donald Hensrud, chair of preventive medicine at the Mayo Clinic stuck histwo cents in and said, “The conflicting evidence seems overwhelming, but the new study helps to clarify the overall message.” Notice how this “chairman and doctor” makes sure you’re thinking that the overall message is right to begin with. This is theABC network convincing you that supplements are dangerous. They conveniently slide in that “Mayo Clinic” opinion, which seems so objective and reassuring. Remember, lies are best perpetuated when the consumer is given two or three choices, neither of which is beneficial or based on truth, and then left to decide within the parameter of a SET OF LIES which road he or she will follow.
CBS lies about supplements
February 11th, 2009, CBS covers supplements: This network’s atrocity to humankind informs the masses that beta-carotene raises the risk of heart disease and cancer. They go on to “inform” the loyal fans that Vitamin C causes kidney stones and does not help prevent disease or the common cold. Finally, they add that Vitamin A causes liver damage, blindness and bone fractures. But only in very high doses can this occur, and just about every legitimate supplement warns you, so the story is completely misleading and full of fear tactics to get consumers to avoid supplements all together. Plus the headlines/titles of these shows warn the masses about the “danger of supplements” in general, and barely cover that it’s only specific cases that create any kind of health implications.
The Early Show’s Dr. Mallika Marshall misdirects the masses in a very slick way: She says, “It’s also generally recommended that women who are pre-menopausal, that is, entering the change of life
…take at least 1,200 mg of calcium to help prevent bone loss and osteoporosis.” But with the wrong calcium supplements, and especially with a massive dairy and meat diet, Americans are asking for kidney stones, gall stones, and brittle bones. The advice is the EXACT OPPOSITE of what you need to know and it’s delivered wearing a clever mask, by your trusted network and the talk shows that “play doctor.”
Then she tries to trick you into believing you can only get vitamin B12 from meat: “Also, it’s not a bad idea for vegetarians, especially vegans, to take a daily multivitamin, since they could be deficient in certain vitamins, such as B-12, found primarily in meats.”
Unfortunately, most consumers are NOT well enough informed to understand that a few or occasional lapses in quality assurance can translate into nutrient deficiency and disease, including consumption of eggs, milk, meat, sugar and table salt. Jumping into the supplementing arena late in the game, after cancer, heart disease, diabetes or Alzheimer’s has set in and expecting miracle results is not the wise approach.
FOX lies about supplements
February 15, 2012: FoxNews.com, the so called “Fair and Balanced” news,delivered this pack of twisted, distorted lies to their naive, loyal masses: A survey was presented involving more than 2,500 people in France with a history of heart disease or stroke. The results contend that the consumers took either Vitamin B “or” omega 3 fatty acid supplements and their risk of developing cancer was not reduced. The survey went on to say that women taking fish oil supplements actually increased their cancer risk “threefold.”
The study did not reveal any of the participants’ diet, or whether or not they consume GMO foods, artificial sweeteners, fried foods, or other beneficial supplements. Then, in reading the whole study, which most people don’t, readers see that the group study admitted in the Archives of Internal Medicine that, “Early cancers and pre-cancerous growths might have been missed when participants were recruited.”
A more recent (August of 2011) and much larger study found that women who took fish oil pills were a THIRD LESS LIKELY to develop breast cancer than women who didn’t. The study also revealed better cognition and brain health for those taking fish oil supplements! (http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2011/08/110817120220.htm).
The NEWSPAPER lies about supplements
How many people in the world wake up and read the morning paper, front to back? How many people rely on their morning paper, be it The New York Times, The Washington Post, or their favorite printed version of their city or county news? How many innocent people who want to improve their health or their children’s make most of their informed decisions based on what they read in black and white print every morning or afternoon?
The BIGGEST LIE comes to you in the form of the general “multivitamin.” Centrum, Equate, and One-a-day are perfect examples of a counter-offensive move by Big Pharma to give you what you’re asking for, but in a harmful, hidden delivery of toxic, synthetic vitamins your body can’t use, and “other ingredients,” which often include artificial, cancer-causing sweeteners, gelatin which comes from abused GMO animals, and much more! Do people know that supplementing with CALCIUM can be detrimental to their health?
Get your supplement information from reliable sources, people who have degrees in NUTRITION, not medicine. No offense, but not a single Medical School in the United States teaches nutrition. They occasionally have “mini-lesson” lectures, but when you want real information about HOW to supplement and build your immunity and know the difference between organic, powerful supplements and dangerous toxins posing as supplements, ask a Naturopath or someone with an actual degree in Nutrition.
