The Media Bubble is Real — And Worse Than You Think - POLITICO Magazine
This isn’t just a shift in medium. It’s also a shift in sociopolitics, and a radical one. Where newspaper jobs are spread nationwide, internet jobs are not: Today, 73 percent of all internet publishing jobs are concentrated in either the Boston-New York-Washington-Richmond corridor or the West Coast crescent that runs from Seattle to San Diego and on to Phoenix. The Chicagoland area, a traditional media center, captures 5 percent of the jobs, with a paltry 22 percent going to the rest of the country


take it the way a social scientist would take it: The people who report, edit, produce and publish news can’t help being affected—deeply affected—by the environment around them

. Journalists respond to their failings best when their vanity is punctured with proof that they blew a story that was right in front of them. If the burning humiliation of missing the biggest political story in a generation won’t change newsrooms, nothing will. More than anything, journalists hate getting beat.

YouTube -- Freedomain Radio: Western Civilization On Edge | Paul Joseph Watson and Stefan Molyneux
"If it is a 'humanitarian crisis' of the first order, then it is the result of the government programme called arms sales, called arming ISIS, called meddling in the Middle East, called regime change; just another example of how one disastrous programme called regime change leads to another disastrous programme called immigration from the Third World...It is a massive migration from a significantly over-populated Africa which has partly resulted from massive amounts of food aid and other kinds of foreign aid that has been showered on the continent setting off a massive birth rates and an over-population crisis. So, again, we have this whole series of dominoes: ill-thought-out, virtue-signalling, nonsense, destructive government programmes just lead to more and more and more disasters." -- "There is this terrible situation throughout the West, as a whole, where you arm everyone, you invade everyone, you bomb everyone, and then you invite everyone...You couldn't design a system better tripwired to take down Western civilization than to stripmine taxpayers for money, use to to buy arms, sell it to dictatorships all over the world, have very aggressive foreign policy, bomb people, invade people – and then invite all of the people into your country who you have been bombing and invading."

When My Mom Moved Into Her Car, We Learned To Survive Without Being Fine
But it turns out it’s easier than you’d think to accept the unacceptable. You push the bad thing to the periphery and learn to live with it inevitably creeping back into your line of vision, the fact of it obscuring all the rest.
