The MSM: Speaking Truth From Power

It's not 'technology' or 'unfair competition from fake news' that's killing the MSM. If you want to know the real reason why the MSM is dying, consider the latest scores for 'The Last Jedi' on Rotten Tomatoes:

Critics: 93%

Real people: 56%

Naturally, such a huge chasm between the MSM's collective opinion and actual, normal people has caused a lot of soul-searching amongst the folks in the media who like to claim they're the voice of the people.

No, not really!

Instead, they've doubled down. It's all a conspiracy I tells you!

It's probably those Macedonia content farmers again. There is no better proof of the bogus nature of the left's anti-establishment posturing than that we now have the MSM circling the wagons round a huge corporation. They're not standing up for the little guy, they're standing up to the little guy, slapping him about the chops shouting 'you will like this garbage'.

Yes, it's only a movie. On the other hand, it's only a movie, yet even here the MSM can't resist the temptation to push its deary, nihilistic agenda. If they're like this with a film, who could possibly trust them to deal honestly with serious issues?

I'll wait until it's on Sky Movies. The last one wasn't bad, passed a couple of hours, but didn't seem to have any of the magic that the originals did...

I remember thinking the original Star Wars looked pretty naff, so never bothered watching it or any of its sequels, but nonetheless enjoyed Sargon of Akkad's take on the latest episode.
