The Real Reason Why Black Media Is DEAD: Lies, Lack Of Integrity, & Lazy Research

See on Scoop.itOUR COMMON GROUND News Board •● ☥●• The Third Eye Parenthesis

“Most, if not all, Black media today are secondary sources of information, masquerading as primary sources. In other words, they get their news from the same mainstream media outlets as you do, then they report it as if they can speak with the same confidence as a primary news source–one who got their information straight from the originator of the information.

Sure, they may have an occasional one-on-one interview (usually entertainment-related) or other story they researched on their own, but most of what you’re getting from them is reworded, rehashed, unoriginal, unattributed stories and ideas they pass off as their own. This is the LIE that Black media has become so comfortable with telling.”

America’s Shadow Wars in Africa

Is it possible that the U.S. military is present in more countries and more places now than at the height of the Cold War? It’s true that the U.S. is reducing its forces and giant bases in Europe and that its troops are out of Iraq (except for that huge, militarized embassy in Baghdad). On the other hand, there’s that massive ground, air, and naval build-up in the Persian Gulf, the Obama administration’s widely publicized “pivot” to Asia (including troops and ships), those new drone bases in the eastern Indian Ocean region, some movement back into Latin America (including a new base in Chile), and don’t forget Africa, where less than a decade ago, the U.S. had almost no military presence at all. Now, as TomDispatch Associate Editor Nick Turse writes in the latest in his “changing face of empire” series, U.S. special operations forces, regular troops, private contractors, and drones are spreading across the continent with remarkable (if little noticed) rapidity.
