It's all in the framing ...

On TV the news has seemingly endless coverage of protests in Syria.

Nearly nothing at all about the huge protests in Greece.

This is why the powers that be have to take over the Internet. People are learning that the corrupted gatekeepers of the traditional media do not act in their best interest. Not all of them choose that explicitly, but the end result is the same. The Internet provides an opportunity for anyone to dig down to the raw facts of a story and decide the truth for themselves.

You're right about that one. It's out of their control. And they need total control to continue with their scams.

I was going to write something to go with those links. Something about how the mainstream media always portrays the "bail-out" as something that will save Greece.

Greece has already defaulted, but to say so formally would have grievous political-economic consequences.

Better to put the Greek people through the wringer rather than let the banksters admit defeat.
