Now I just wanted to pose a particular question to you today. I want to talk about mainstream media. I just got in my car this morning and when I got in, the news was actually on the radio.
So I’m listening to the news – and to be honest don’t really listen to any news, I don’t watch news on TV – but obviously getting in the car, you know, I didn’t choose to put news on – it just happened to be on the particular radio station that I was listening to.
So I sat there for a minute or so and all sudden I got sucked into it. But then I had this wake up…
“What Am I Doing!?”
And I realized how much listening to the news and the mainstream media like that – I realized how much the news can affect your mood.
I don’t like to do anything or watch anything or listen to anything that might affect my mood going into work. When I’m going into the office, when I’ve got a lot to do, I’m thinking things through and then planning things in my head. I don’t like external forces coming in and messing with that mood.
It’s kind of like spending an hour with…
A Friend That Just Moans Constantly
It affects your mood, right? That’s why people say, be careful who you choose to spend your time with.
And so it got me thinking about mainstream media, and how far too many people pay attention to, listen to and get absorbed by mainstream media, and what I quite frankly believed to be ludicrous claims, many times…
Ludicrous Opinions And Damaging Information
…that can literally cause people to be affected in so many ways.
I believe from even the small exposure that I sometimes have to mainstream media, I can see how it can literally alter people, turn people against each other almost, caused people to have these drastic opinions. And to me, it’s just absolutely insane that people would even choose to listen or watch mainstream media.
And so I think, you know, my personal opinion – and again this is this is something that’s completely open to discussion and I’d love to hear your thoughts in your comments, – what are your thoughts on mainstream media?

Do you believe what you’re hearing or seeing in the news? Do you think they have your best interests at heart?
