Break the matrix.

Mainstream is, generally, the common current of thought of the majority. It is a term most often applied in the arts (i.e., music, literature, and performance). This includes:

  • something that is ordinary or usual;
  • something that is familiar to the masses;
  • something that is available to the general public.

As such, the mainstream includes all popular culture, typically disseminated by mass media.

Mass media is a term used to denote a section of the media specifically envisioned and designed to reach a very large audience such as the population of a nation state.

Toward the end of the 20th century, the advent of the World Wide Web marked the first era in which any individual could have a means of exposure on a scale comparable to that of mass media. For the first time, anyone with a web site can address a global audience.

The invention of the Internet has also allowed breaking news stories to reach around the globe within minutes. This rapid growth of instantaneous, decentralized communication is often deemed likely to change mass media and its relationship to society.

The internet is quickly becoming the center of mass media.

FOX News Investigative Reporters Fired For Telling The Truth

The Fox News Channel has been the subject of several controversies. Critics of the channel accuse it of political bias towards the right. The network has denied such allegations. There have been many accusations of bias, as well as some studies that support such accusations.

In politics, right-wing, the political right, and the right are terms used in the spectrum of left-right politics, and much like the opposite appellation of left-wing, it has a broad variety of definitions.

Censorship of Ron Paul:

Ron Paul is on the “right”, so why doesn’t Fox News like Ron Paul?

He’s not their kind of right. Ron Paul is a constitutional-conservative-libertarian.

Rupert Murdoch, and the people who control the media, are neo-cons (a political philosophy that is actually leftist, but pretends to be on the right).

Right-libertarianism, more commonly called Libertarian conservatism, describes certain political ideologies with views between libertarianism and right-wing conservatism, such as limited government and capitalism.

Wikipedia: January 6, 2008 – Milford, New Hampshire

The New Hampshire Republican Party had been sponsoring a brunch forum with presidential candidates to be broadcast on Fox News.[84] Candidates Ron Paul and Duncan Hunter were not invited to this event, despite the fact that Paul polls higher, and has raised significantly more money than Fred Thompson, who has been invited. Ron Paul got 10 percent of the Iowa vote while Guliani who was invited got just 3 percent. Fox News said they had only enough room for so many candidates as a reason why Paul and Hunter were not invited. [85][86] This caused Paul supporters to send a number of protest letters to the Fox News network.[87] New Hampshire Republican Party Chairman Fergus Cullen released a statement on the 31st of December regarding the primary weekend debates where he mentions the exclusion; “Limiting the number of candidates who are invited to participate in debates is not consistent with the tradition of the first in the nation primary. The level playing field requires that all candidates be given an equal opportunity to participate – not just a select few determined by the media prior to any votes being cast.”[88][89] On January 5th, 2008, following Fox News’ continued refusal to allow Paul into the forum, the New Hampshire Republican Party withdrew their sponsorship of the event.[86]
