Conspiratorial Media Incest

The long list of links — social and political — that this article outlines between the Democratic Party and the journalists that dominate the media is downright appalling. No wonder they can’t report objectively. Too many of them have been activists trying to get Democrats elected.

Pioneer cover

From the press release: From the moment he is handed a possibility of making the first alien contact, Saunders Maxwell decides he will do it, even if doing so takes him through hell and back.

Unfortunately, that is exactly where that journey takes him.

The vision that Zimmerman paints of vibrant human colonies on the Moon, Mars, the asteroids, and beyond, indomitably fighting the harsh lifeless environment of space to build new societies, captures perfectly the emerging space race we see today.

He also captures in Pioneer the heart of the human spirit, willing to push forward no matter the odds, no matter the cost. It is that spirit that will make the exploration of the heavens possible, forever, into the never-ending future.

    Wow – what a litany of dishonesty & hypocrisy. I maintain our current MSM is actually in some ways worse than Tass & Pravda of the old Soviet Union. At least Soviet citizens were aware those were propaganda arms of their gov’t & discounted much of the news “reporting” they were force-fed. But when a supposedly “free & independent” press supports & promotes one party over the other, this form of propaganda – and make no mistake, that’s exactly what it is (look up the definition if you don’t believe me) – is really far more dangerous than the BS put out by the “Official” news bureaus of that horrific system, because so many fail to recognize their opinions are being deliberately maipulated…

    …that’s why I stopped watching Brian Williams on the NBC Nightly News & his infatuation with Barack. I found a better news source- Fox News Channel, particularly Brett Baier’s Special Report!
