RFK Jr. speaks out against an inadequate media

Robert Kennedy Jr. speaks fluently here about the problems with the media and how the degradation of quality information has led to our current political state. Well, current as of a couple of years back.

This is just under 30 minutes, and worth every second of your time.

I rarely post such videos. This one is the best I've seen in a very long time.

Enjoy, and learn. His father would be so proud.

Now, more than ever, it's important to support truly independent media yourself, with your money. If you don't, others will not get the information they need, and your life will be made more miserable.

Watch the video - RFK says it much better than I do.

Then drop by Consortium News and drop off some bucks to support one of the only sites to break real news stories, not just op eds and opinion pieces, or recycled news of the day. Robert Parry, the editor there, wrote for both the AP and Newsweek before breaking out on his own. He is today's George Seldes, a fiercely independent journalist who isn't afraid to go where the mainstream fears to tread.

Please consider supporting him. He actually pays his writers, so you're not just supporting him, but all the people who get published there, including this gal here. Want to see more of my writing? Give him some money. It's much needed, all around.
