The Inaugural Mainstream Watchdog Post
I started forming my distrust of the Mainstream Media, aka MSM, somewhere back in the early 90’s. At that time my distrust wasn’t a big thing and I mostly grumbled under my breath while changing channels.
Most calm and reasonable conservatives back then half-smiled and harrumphed while we watched media bias grow. We watched and shifted in our chairs uncomfortably, hoping that things would even out eventually. We are a polite folk and we thought truth and reason would return….I mean this is America after all, right?
After years of patience and politeness we eventually realized that the ship of reason was listing severely to the left and it was not going to right itself on it’s own. We concluded that we had to stop holding the door for the other guys because they have been slamming the door in our faces for way too long. Huntley & Brinkley, and other trusted news personalities of the past, are gone and they aren’t coming back.
The direction our media is taking today is frightening. So many Americans are only getting news from the MSM and their opinions are being swayed.
Today we have news outlets that are only focused on defeating conservatism, their focus now is President Trump, but that doesn’t really matter. They’re working on taking down our republic a little at a time, and right now they are winning the battle.
The only way I think we can beat the MSM is to cut their budget. They don’t care what we think because they, along with Soros, are winning and they’ll continue to win unless we cut their food supply….. and they feed on money. It’s expensive to run a network and they only generate money by selling advertising.
It’s insane for us to purchase from companies that advertise on the MSM. We complain about MSM’s biased messaging yet we still purchase from their advertisers? Doesn’t make sense.
I started Mainstream Watchdog to make it easy and fast to send email to companies we see advertising on the MSM. We need to tell them we’ll purchase from a competitor if they choose to continue to advertise on the MSM. When companies start pulling their advertising from the MSM, we win.
