Dan Rather was a guest at the News Dissector radio show with Dan Schechter on prn.fm.

The former anchor of CBS, reveals how mainstream media is controlled by big corporations.

Also what is the fate of those who decide to "report" the real news.

What we have here is an uphill battle to get information out to the public. While we, the ones looking for real change to the conditions affecting society, try to inform the public about what is really going on, our adversaries have the giant machines of misinformation ready to undo anything we do.

This is why unity is so important, and us using all the tools available or better yet, still available to us, to spread the message of hope and real equality to all men.

I was against social media, but what else do we have left? We need to use the tools of social media to engage the world, and put our message out.

They will listen, but we have to be there to speak! This is how we have been able to get some information out, by going into facebook and other social platforms and spreading the news ourselves.

We need to use Twitter, facebook, Youtube, and whatever else is out there to organize and spread information.

I suggest anybody reading this post, who does not have an account with Facebook, go and create one today!. There is no need to use personal information, I mean, do people really use their main email accounts to sign up? Go to yahoo and create an email address, just for social media and get involved that way, by joining the social sites, and then look for, and work with people from here into an strategy on how to work together to inform the people.

I'm sure that many of you in here, already knew this, but this is to those who were not aware of this problem. Enjoy.

Facebook was just an example, however we need to start somewhere, it's like if you want to fish, why not go to where the fishes are swimming? maybe there are other social media sites, let us use them.

Also, is there anything big (social media) not owned by private stock? If there is, let's use it.

I'm a hands on type of person, and I believe, nothing will get done until we do it, but we have to roll up our sleeves and do it, planning is great, but at some point one has to put his hand to the plow.

yeah, it is. I just made that video removing the part where I was interviewed, and left Dan Rather in place, which is what I really want to address in this post. Thanks for the link.

Dan Rather didn't "expose" shit. This is all old news for anyone who took the Red Pill when given the opportunity.
