You know, years ago [late forties, fifties and sixties], I found that if one listened carefully and between the lines of the propoganda, more could be learned from Radio Moscow than listening to our own media. It always seemed strange to me, but was an enlightening way to get the news. Also, back in the fifties BBC would fill in many gaps that the American media conveniently either forgot or purposely pushed aside.
Our own media has never been straightforward since I have been listening, especially starting after WWII [1945 0r 6 on]. What we see today is just more of the same, but much worse.
