Is Karma finally punching the Media in the face?
Karma means action, work or deed; it also refers to the spiritual principle of cause and effect where intent and actions of an individual (cause) influence the future of that individual (effect). Good intent and good deeds contribute to good karma and future happiness, while bad intent and bad deeds contribute to bad karma and future suffering.
The philosophy of karma is closely associated with the idea of rebirth in many schools of Indian religions (particularly Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, Sikhism and Taoism). In these schools, karma in the present affects one's future in the current life, as well as the nature and quality of future lives. The mainstream Media (The MSM) have for far too long decided to ditch real journalism and instead focus on Click Bait journalism. Gone are the days where truth mattered (Yes there are few left but the majority do not care for Truth). In recent years as the Media moved away from the printing press - every story published online needed to command clicks - if a story didn't command clicks then it wouldn't make the Media Publication any money. For a story to make money for the Owner of the Publication that story needed to be seen by many - known as a Click & a View. Every time you the reader clicked on a page that had adverts the paper would be paid for that impression. If you the reader/viewer went one step further and clicked on the advert the publication would earn even more money sometimes via an affiliate sale (a % of the transaction value is paid to the Publication) or simply a fee for bringing someone to another businesses website.
As the MSM is controlled by big business and special interests it's not in their interest to remain neutral and impartial on news it would put out. They would push their interest because why not, they owned the publication they could push what ever agenda they wanted. Now sometimes the agenda may seem harmless - talking up big business that was in some way connected to the Publication. However, as The MSM over the decades has become owned by the few rather than the many, the agenda has become more and more focused on Globalism and promoting the agendas that enabled them to make Super Normal Profits.
The MSM due to it's Special controlling interests have clearly decided it won't remain neutral when it prints its so called news it will instead push its agenda with its news stories. The failing MSM in recent years decided it would hire biased Activists rather than Journalists who value the truth and integrity. However, with each story the MSM pushed upon the masses the trust in the MSM vanished. People no longer trust organisations like CNN, The BBC, The New York Times, The Guardian and the list could go on for pages and pages. Only 6% of the American public Trusts the Mainstream Media. As the trust vanished as people saw through their biased Neo-Liberal Globalist agendas the MSM had to push more and more click bait. Click bait examples like the ones above or provocative headlines used to trigger the opposition to react or the brainwashed to share. Truth no longer mattered in modern journalism and it didn't matter whose name they smeared in the drive for clicks.
But what's all this got to do with Karma I hear you asking?
When the MSM has been pushing its biased agenda for decades and ignoring the facts and more than willing to smear names through the gutter to further their Globalist agenda, Karma finally starts to catch up to these corrupt unethical journalists. In recent days the gutter press has announced that it has started laying off large numbers of its terrible journalists because the lies and click bait format clearly isn't working.
Independent media is getting more clicks and views than large chunks of the gutter press can command. PewdiePie (the Largest Independent YouTuber) has a lighthearted news Programme on YouTube called PewNews - this News programme gets more than CNN, The BBC News & Channel 4 News on Youtube combined on a weekly basis. And you wonder why they keep smearing Pewdiepie by inferring he is a Nazi (he isn't just in case you were wondering). The public see's through their lies and Karma is paying these institutions back. As Huffington Post & Buzzfeed journalists begin the search for new work many of the public have fist pumped the air and offered a suggestion to these lying activists who have been happy to push the Globalists agenda since their careers began at these unethical/un-trusted institutions. The response has been simple "LEARN TO CODE!" Fitting when so many news articles have been written in recent years by these same Activists telling those in the 'Rust Belt' and those in low income jobs who had recently been laid off to "learn to code". So partonising and insulting - but the articles didn't stop.
On the Left a Member of Twitter telling the world he doesn't care if the Journalists are upset about being told to Learn to Code. And below a blue Tick Twitter User who is very upset about being told to learn to code!
All human beings deserve a second & even third chance. I actually hope these so called journalists do find work again. It's not nice being out of work but maybe in their next occupation they won't push the Globalists Neo-Liberal agenda's for clicks. As the MSM sinks in its own mess only time will tell if they will change their ways before they all go bust. My guess there will always be big pockets willing to fund Fake News to push their Globalist agenda but because of this they will never regain the public's trust and Independent media will emerge and thrive.
One wonder's how long it will take for the masses to wake up that the Media lies to us everyday.
