Top definition
a source of information that many take at face value. some truths are told, some are lies. im not saying all media lies to control us, but everyone has some sort of bias and the media does as well. learn to hear/read/watch the media and form your own conclusions, dont blindly follow and dont blindly reject because lets face it, none of us have first hand knowledge for everything.
fox and cnn may lie to us, but they also tell the truth at times, learn to filter through it and come to your own conclusions

A massive form of "prepackaged" truths, meant to suppress the potential intellect and creativity from an already empty society. as well as "help" mold young impressionable minds into the next generation of sleepy shoppers...

the sad truth is that there are:
-1500 newspapers
-1100 magazines,
-9000 radio stations
-1500 TV stations
- and 2400 different publishers in "america"... ALL of them owned by 6 corporations... what ever happened to freedom of press? how can any "news" be reliable when the people who report the news have nothing dollar signs in there eyes...

the last thing these greedy monsters want is for people to think for themselves, once we start to think, we start to question... once we start to question, we start to see the lies... once we see the lies...this whole facade crumbles like a house of cards in the wind, and all your left with is just a little man with a really big god complex.

Now that you've had a peek behind the curtain it is your responsibility to open your eyes, tear down this stage that's been built around us and demand
answers.
-You are not the first, you wont be the last.

-The answers are out there, the truth is never lost.. it may go through periods of "sleep" if you would, harder to get a hold; but never lost.
-This is the day, the day of your first awakening. -From this point forward there is no turning back, No more closing your eyes to the truth, to the atrocities, to the injustice. This is the first day of the rest of your life. Your mind is the most powerful tool in the universe, the only thing that you can truly call your own, and these dirty snakes are trying to take it away from us. Today is the day you start working towards your true potential.. question everything; if there is nothing to hide, there's no reason to hide the question

-Its in your hands now.... pay it forward.

..and when in doubt, just remember.. the average male produces 545 Billion sperm cells in his life, and usually only a single sperm can fertilize the egg..... just take a minute to truly soak in everything it actually took for you (you) to be sitting here today.... astronomical.

-you are never alone..

The evolved form of High School gossips.
The media is interested in the interesting because they themselves are uninteresting.
