  • Once NEWS became beholden to Advertizement TRUTH went out the window.
  • Don't expect the Internet to solve that problem.
  • Expect the Internet to accelerate the problem.
  • Rumor mills accelerate in the age of twits & tweets.
  • Governments are already good at it & very well practiced.
  • Need look no further than politicians campaigning.
  • A crisis is a horrible thing to waste.
  • A crisis is a wonderful thing to exploit.

yep media sucks .... so make it better .   for example, if more people practice extreme honesty in listening and writing, then i expect our media would start to change in that direction.  No?
Nope - reread my first bullet.

  • same Rx as the Golden Rule & Rodney King's "can't we all just get along?"
  • better Rx is remove advertizing from news & money from politics
  • Rx incomplete without all the rest of the threefolding scenario

well getting money out of news and money out of politics is a great and grand idea
so is practicing extreme honesty and the golden rule .

strange, thought, i did get a flash here ... how to distinguish where money should be used and where not?  both news and politics are parts of the meta-world, projected outside of our individual beings.  perhaps money should not be allowed to be used there.  whereas money used to trade material goods and processes ... well that is a must needs convenience in our modern world.  No?
I suspect it is not the money that is the problem it is the corrupting influence of turning the news & politicians into a commodities that is the problem. I suspect the notions of:
  • spontaneous organizations
  • free markets to maximize distribution of goods & services consistent with:
  • the principles of thriving health & individual dignity in vocation
  • threefoldness

is a much better start than governments "not allowing" shit.

Again I respect, appreciate & acknowledge your comments above & have differing mileage.

i don't understand the "nope" part.   Your first bullet is true ... "Once NEWS became beholden to Advertizement TRUTH did go out the window" ... or said differently, "our media sucks".  i am not at all sorry that i stopped there at that realization.  that was truly my response. 
I respect, appreciate & acknowledge that you did respond to my comment.
