Another reason to ditch the Mainstream Media

By Dark Politricks

As the BBC’s non stop live coverage of the Chilean miners rescue rolls into another hour I cannot help thinking to myself that this is an ideal example of why many people are deserting the MSM in droves.

Yes it’s an incredible human story of courage, suffering and hope and my thoughts go out to the miners who are currently being rescued. I cannot even begin to imagine what it has been like to be stuck half a mile under ground for so long whilst everyone thought you were dead only to be discovered alive and then rescued in the manner currently being carried out.

However much I feel for the miners and want to know more about the cost cutting measures that led to their prediciment I don’t want to watch non stop coverage of what is very boring television for 20+ hours. Apart from the “drama” as each miner is brought to the surface the coverage on BBC, Sky and other mainstream channels has been like watching paint dry and I cannot believe that the decision was made to turn the whole stations broadcast over to this event.

I actually feel pretty sorry for the BBC reporter who is live on the scene as he is obviously very tired and must be struggling to find anything interesting to say inbetween translating his interviews to relatives and survivors from Spannish to English. The whole drama could have easily been condensed into a ten minute news story with cutaways to the first few miners brought to the surface but to dedicate the whole channel to live broadcasting the rescue of all 33 miners is overkill at best and deriliction of duty to report news properly at worst.

What is more important in the world today?

Is it the human drama of the Chilean miners story or any of the following:

The worsening relations between Pakistan and NATO forces in Afghanistan. The USA has repeatedly breached Pakistani airspace and the other week killed a number of Pakistani border guards causing the government to close it’s borders to prevent supplies from reaching their destination. No sooner had the border been shut and the conveys stuck but the Taliban carried out a number of attacks on the convoys destorying lorries, supplies and ammunition.

Is it the stalemate in the Middle East between an Israel governemnt slowly slipping towards fascism and the Palestinian authority, a msinomer if ever one existed. Israel has just passed a law forcing Israeli citizens to swear allegiance to the Zionist regime as a Jewish state. Not only has Israel ignored international law and UN resolutions to carry on its building of settlements in the occupied terroritiries the Israeli Prime Minister offered to halt this illegal activity if the Palestinians agreed to its demand to recognise Israel as a Jewish state.

Or is it the worsening global economy that is causing governments all across the world to rip up previous promises and pledges and implement austerity measures for our own good. Whilst banksters and city wide boys carry on the same trading activities that bankrupted governemnt coffers and pay themselves stupidly large bonuses and multi million pound salaries the every day man and woman is forced to endure tax increases, benefit cuts and a massive reduction in public services. We are basically being expected to pay more for less which might be palatable if we could see some actual justice being carried out and those banskters and fraudsters who got us into this mess locked up and their assets removed.

The Lib Dem’s Vince Cable had to make a speech in the House of Commons the other day stating how their earlier pre election promise to fight any rise in higher education tutition fees was being broken due to the deficit. The recent Browne report into the state of higher education has recommended that a free market be created in our Universities and that tutition fees should rise without limit. In a severe case of I’m allright Jack, our beloved leaders, who all got grants to go to Uni and their tuition paid for by the state, tell us that we will all have to pay more in future to get a degree. No more leaving Uni with 10k or 15k debt, no students of tomorrow can expect to start their careers with a huge 30k-40k debt around their necks.

But what else would you expect from a debt based monetary system. The aim it seems is to get every citizen jacked up on debt as young as possible and then introduce them to the wonderful world of slavery where they can’t expect to get a mortgate until their 40’s and will most likely never experience a day of debt free living in their lifetime.

These are all important stories in my eyes and much more important than the story of the Chilean miners. The fact that all major 24 news channels  are covering this event non stop proves that they believe reality tv drama is more important in the eyes of their viewers than real news. This might be true for the brainwashed masses who are addicted to Big Brother, X Factor and other froth and entertainment that is nothing more than a distraction from anything of real importance and value however more and more people are turning away from the mainstream and looking for substance elsewhere.

Whilst news channels of note such as Russia Today have reported on the Chilean drama they have done so in the context of just another news story and have not decided to dedicate their whole channel to minute by minute minutiae and irrelevance. The BBC may feel that their licence payers deserve the worst kind of news reporting however many news channels don’t and its a blessing that a thriving alternative news media exists to counter act the monotony of the mainstream.

    not sure i agree…what is more fun than spending your entire wednesday evening watching some poor Chilean miner get dragged out every 40 minutes…!!

    to be fair, considering they had been there for 70 days, none of them looked like they had lost weight, and to top it off…not a single one bought back any coal. the lazy gits.

    mainstream media has not reflected ‘true’ news for so many years I cant remember…there was a comedian on micheal mcintyres roadshow last week that explained it best….

    “the news has been filled with stories of PANIC! about the recession, people are panicking all over the country…really, are they, im sat here eating toast in my slippers…”

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
