I was scared out of my mind.

I didn't like being there, but as an United Nations peacekeeper, you have to take whatever comes forward. I much rather liked being a **** in a helicopter or using the electronic surveillance equipment in our Spanish plane. I'm scared of heights, but I'm not scared about flying, where I can control stuff.

On a battlefield, you might be in control of about ten percent of the stuff. That's what becomes truly scary. Being out of control.

The media has gone downhill since the 60's and looks like it's still flushing itself down the toilet! Some decent news and piles of worthless crap!

It is hard to be taken in by the media when you have no TV shows to watch and never read newspapers. People should try it, you will feel much better.

I just know that those within today's politically-correct saturated media are collectively much too self-absorbed within its self-created, slick, fantasy of intellectual superiority to be concerned with the reality that most common folks are much wiser and smarter than they.

Sad.

I specified "today's politically-correct saturated media".

I'll leave whether or not you want to include FOX News completely up to you.

Why did you feel the need to specify?

In response to “Why did you feel the need to specify?

Because the masses usually need a dose of media-hoodwinking in order to (almost subconsciously) fall in lockstep with political correctness, which is a common motive of today's pro-Progressive media.

More often than not, that media aims to first and foremost target the listeners'/viewers' emotions, without regard to principle, context, reasoning, and rationale.

The deeply-stirred, human emotion must be the controlling factor in the pro-Progressive, politically-correct process of persuasion or else political correctness can be extremely easy to reject.

My take as I have witnessed it for at least 45 years of my 62 years of life.

I can see the **** they're trying to push from a mile away. I seek out media that's as neutral as possible, but it's difficult to find any without at least some level of bias and an agenda.

I think we have several problems with the "media".

A 24 hour news cycle that is in constant need of content. Too much opinion being presented as fact aka "news". Too many people getting their news from Sean Hannity, Rachel Maddow, Rush Limbaugh, etc... Too many web sites masquarading as news outlets all of which have an obvious bias one way or the other and no real oversight as to what they publish. A public that is only interested in hearing what they already believe to be true.
