News Media: Opinion

The more I surf the net and come across “News Stories” that I would be interested in reading the more I am presented with “if you would like to read this sign up for a paid subscription.” I have no problem white listing their sites so that I can be bombarded with the advertisements they are paid for, but why should I now have to “subscribe” to their news media to read, or complete reading an article that is being put out for “public information?”

In the days of newsprint I can understand why you would subscribe to a printed publication to have it delivered by a “paperboy/girl” and placed faithfully in a dry place and on time! Those days are all but gone, the advertising continues and is now so well tuned to the sites I have been browsing to “target me specifically” with the latest product I need, I think I should be able to get the news for FREE in this digital age.

Stop offering me a “paid subscription with no ads”  and just take the advertisers money and let me read my articles with ads on the side!

Does anybody think the “NEWS”  is so good they have to hold it for a RANSOM PAYMENT if I want to read it? Hell, I’ll just turn on the TV and get it for free…with ads! And maybe I’ll just go ahead and record it to watch over and over again.



Media Control & The New World Order

I know it sounds like CONSPIRACY THEORY, but as I was doing a little reading of the current political news, the thought came to me “how much can I trust what I am reading” who owns or controls the media.

So I did a little research first just searching on Google “newspaper political endorsements” and narrowed the search down to Canada, found this link from the Canadian Journalism Project as I pursued this a little further I wanted to know “who owns what paper(s)”? Now I am starting to think “holy crap really” found this story from the NATIONAL POST a separatist from Quebec bills themselves as the largest Canadian Publisher.

Well sure enough as my “questioning” nature got the best of me, I went a little further and wanted to see how deeply we have fallen into being led by a select group of “MEDIA MOGULS” and came across this link (this is a pdf link to the 2014 newspapers owners groups) sure enough out of 111 newspapers Quebecor/Sun  Media publish 38 followed by the #2 spot Torstar Corp with 13, #3 TC Media with 11 the rest of them don’t even come close.

How does this connect with THE NEW WORLD ORDER?  Well I guess maybe that is just my gut feeling that we are all being led and manipulated by a VERY SELECT GROUP OF VERY,VERY RICH PEOPLE.

Where does Canada sit in this? Well I don’t have the answers for that but I suggest we ALL open our eyes, get involved and do some research.



Union Blog

Hello Brothers & Sisters,

I am going to try my hand at writing a new blog for Union information, I will make an attempt at keeping it short but also informative.

My writing skills are amateurish at best so please allow for grammar and spelling, if you have any input you would like to share that could really help!
