All of us here at the Swamp share at least one important thing and that is, we deeply care about our world, the one we live in and the one beyond. We want the one we live in to be better. We have created a nice little retreat here at the Swamp where we can come together to share our interests and concerns. We discuss depressing things but we try to balance that by exploring the really beautiful things that life has to offer.
What we all realize here is that we can't trust the MSM to inform us. They only tell us what they think we need to know and as has been humorously pointed out by the comedy news programs, they use much of the same talking points to drill certain information into our heads. Even people who only catch a few minutes of the news a week seem to have gotten those points. It really is a form of brainwashing and it is quite effective.
Our only salvation is that we have the Internet, at least for now, to help us learn things that we all need to know. With our busy lives, we only have a certain amount of time each day to search for important stories that we really need to know. I depend on you guys to help keep me informed. I learn new things every day when I visit the Swamp.
For a while now, I have wondered why we don't see any real investigative reporting anymore. It still exists but most of those stories don't make it into the MSM news. If we want to find those stories we will have to work a little harder to find them and then share them ourselves. My older sister sent me a link to a website that I think we all need to explore. I've added it to my bookmarks and you might want to also.
