    News is what somebody somewhere wants to suppress; all the rest is advertising.
    Lord Northcliffe, British publisher 1865-1922
    If you want news you have to pay for it.

    The function of advertising supported "news" is to aggregate eyeballs and minds for the purpose of delivering a commercial or political message.  Any actual news delivered in the process is purely coincidental.

    Once you understand that, the "failure" of the "mainstream" media is obviously not a bug, but a feature.

    Please consider supporting Pacifica, Democracy Now and other paid new sources.

    We kidnap. We torture. It's our policy. Embrace it or end it!
