Today we received a massive shout out from Allison Kilkenny and Jamie Kilstein of Citizen Radio. If you haven’t already, you should really consider downloading their show from http://wearecitizenradio.com/ it is free to download and you can become a member to help fund their independent radio show. They talk about politics but actually from the point of view of truth. They swear a lot and with the slogan “it’s like CNN but with more swearing”, you get a rough idea of what it is like. They gave up their cushy little radio number because they didn’t agree with some of the sponsors, lived in their car for a while and are trying to go full time, to present just based on listener support and socialisty intentions.
The reason this is important is highlighted by the nature of the coverage of the student protests. Several of our members have been along to the protests and have witnessed what they are describing as riots. If you ask any of them how much violence there was on 10.11 or 24.11, you might have to wait for them to finish laughing to get a sensible answer. The BBC actually had less representative coverage of 10.11 than Sky News!!! A fact which shakes us to the very core. They have been ruthless in cutting the BBC funding straight away to ensure a compliant peoples voice and that is what they have got. Unfortunately for Dodgy Dave and his band of posh pirates, we are not impressed. There is a rising movement of left wing media, such as Citizen Radio which actually tell people how it is and trust in them to make their own decisions.
If you are interested in citizen radio, as an idea or just to see what the fuss is about you can subscribe for free at http://wearecitizenradio.com/ It is a really great show but also, they swear like navvies and don’t take the piss. They are good, honest, offensive people with a lot to say and generally just point out what is wrong with the world and how to fix it in a funny way. There are a number of projects like this which would have been unthinkable even a few years ago. Media is a huge cash cow and moving forward, they tend to muscle anyone out that doesn’t do things their way. If you consider the BBC, Dodgy Dave gave them a fee spanking early on and now they behave like the subservient little bitch they are. This would be much how the rest of media worked if it wasn’t all owned by the same evil sack of donkey vomit Rupert Murdoch.
Without a left wing media to present things with peoples best interest at heart not the best profit at heart, people have become so used to people lying, it no longer matters if they do. People accept that journalists just lie and adopt this into their schema, though this is actually amplified massively in England and America. Other developed countries have honours systems but at the end of the day, if something is someone’s fault or they have a spokesperson in, they name them. They don’t do this through politeness but because then, they will be held accountable for what they say.
All of this adds up very neatly to; support our friends at Citizen Radio and others like them. Don’t believe anything in a mainstream media presentation fully. They are only interested in selling papers/ advertising slots and not what is the right thing to present and most importantly, question everything that you do read and when you notice a difference ask yourself why they might have changed that detail. There is usually something fishy at the underside of this dirt. A dirty fish of bad news and bad people.
