Many wonder why I often post so many articles on Facebook and in this blog about the news especially concerning environmental and political issues. I do it because we as a public have the right to know since the major media news outlets are corporate-owned and have NO INTEREST in telling the truth. Thanks to brilliant and valiant people like Josh Wolf and Manila Ryce, they are symbols of why bloggers have taken over the role and are challenging traditional news sources.
I've been following this new HBO mini-series on Blu-Ray called GENERATION KILL which portrays and honest, and savagely brutal view of the war in IRAQ. It's not easy to stomach but makes you wonder what's really going on that the major news outlets won't tell you, who's really behind the lies, why we are there, and last but not least: who's profiting over the death and displacement of native IRAQIS.
I don't have a problem with corporations making money and profiting. Fact is we all expect them to. But I do have a MAJOR problem when profit comes before the lives of people.
