TLB comment: It is a sad state of affairs when “we the American People” have to rely on alternative media outlets from other nations to find out what is * “really happening” around the globe and right here in our own back yards of the United States. The U.S. media began sliding down “the slippery slope” of Government controlled information and propaganda years ago. They are now traveling down that slope at runaway speed with no thought of slowing down or gaining control. The media is fond of pointing out their Constitutional right of “A Free Press,” while supporting the actions of the Military-Industrial-Complex that take away or ignore our Constitutional rights and freedoms as Citizens. ~ Ralph Ely, TLB
