This last week of nightly newscasts that covered our public airwaves with the riveting non-news that some prince has proposed to a woman almost made my head explode. This is America , the country that realized Kings, Queens , Princes, and Princesses are for fairy tales and no human being could possibly be ordained by a God to be better than the rest of us. The same old American country that revolted against royal rule to win our independence and recognized all men and women as equals, well that America got a healthy dose of the pompous “royal family” of England this week and their absurd marriage proposal press tour.
Since our local nightly news from ABC, NBC, and CBS were frothing at the mouth over theses fairy tale characters, the viewing public missed out on the real news and events that were taking place all around the world which were infinitely more important than a wedding proposal by someone who thinks he’s royalty.
Luckily one news station that soars high above the rest, resisted the urge to spew nonsense to the American public, and that news station is “Democracy Now!” “Democracy Now!” is a riveting leading voice on truth telling, and investigative journalism, remember those two things? “Democracy Now!” reports on stories both domestic and international that are worthy of your precious time and comprehension and something you should definitely check out as a better alternative than your local nightly news.
“Democracy Now!” is also independent not tied to a corporation or special interest group that have warped our major news station into obedient robots that report the news fed to them instead of the news happening all around them.
“Democracy Now!” past newscast on Tuesday, November 16th, which featured an ex-Corporate PR representative from a major health insurance company was so riveting the entire voting public should have to watch it before ever casting a vote again.
Having an informed pubic is the keystone to having a functional democracy, thank god “Democracy Now!” is committed to informing those of us that are still listening. “Democracy Now!” can be found at, www.democracynow.org, or on NPR, PBS, Dish Network, DIRECTV, and numerous collegiate radio stations across our country.
