Pillar of the truth

by Matthew Bartlett @ 3:29 pm

Have to stop watching TV news. Every event I or anyone I know has been involved in that was televised got completely garbled and completely misrepresented by the time it got to the news. And it’s that simplified filtered and altered version which becomes the raw material (the ‘facts’) of subsequent public discussion.

I have an idea that a network of trusted bloggers might be a solution. I have been fairly unimpressed with Aotearoa Independent Media Centre so far, which seems at least as narrow as the mainstream.

Who can I trust to interpret happenings around here?

    I’ve been known to be trustworthy once.

    OK, I need trustworthy + aware of happenings + able/willing to provide helpful interpretations of them.

    I get some of my news and interpretation and awareness from johnquiggin.com.

    read investigate magazine,
    listen to the news on overseas shortwave radio stations,
    belive nothing of what you see on tv and what you read in the papers.
    News media ownership in New Zealand.
    listen to talkback radio
    but most importantly – stay in the Word and in constant communication with the Author and Perfector of our faith.
