One week ago I decided to start OpinionHead.com, and now we have the main OpinionHead Blog finished, the OpinionHead Forums are also up and running and the newest section OpinionHead News has also been created! No, the content part isn’t finished yet, but the hard part of modifying the template is.
The content is going to be about News, anything and everything that I can find, all organized into sections, ready to be bookmarked! I don’t know about you, but I spend a lot of time going from one place to another trying to find out whats going on in the world. If you are into the News, this section of the site is for you!
Why would you want more than one source for your News? Simple, to see just how biased the media actually is! We all have our opinions, and rightly so, but why is it that opinions are like butt-holes, everybody has one, and they all stink! Maybe I can explain what I believe is the reason for this. We develop our opinions from what we believe to be true, nobody has an opinion that they don’t believe, so why doesn’t everybody have the same opinion? We develop our opinions from our environment, our friends, our family, our bosses, and what we hear, see, or read in the news!
If there were only one source for our news, we would all get to where we believed the same thing, that is why dictators close down as many TV, radio, and news sources as they can, and leave but one, the one that pushes the dictators own views, and opinionsl
Just look at Hugo Chavez what did he do? Why is it, that when the U.S. first freed Iraq, we helped get the local radio broadcasters up and running, and even set up a pro-U.S. station. Here is one site that can help exlpain it.
A war of the airwaves in Iraq began months before fighting on the ground. This is a comprehensive guide to monitoring radio stations transmitting to and from Iraq. Here you can find a listing of stations involved in the war, complete with frequencies and audio samples, updated regularly as new fronts are opened in the fight for the hearts and minds of the Iraqi people.
The troops even hand out radios in both Iraq and Afghanistan, so that the local people can hear what is happening and don’t have to rely solely on word of mouth, passed from one person to another, we all know how accurate that is.
Anyway, back to my point, having a biased source for your news, leads us to also be biased! Didn’t you notice that when Bill Clinton was President, it didn’t matter what he did, he was the darling of the news, but why? That I can’t tell you, but what I do know is that that much bias in the news is just wrong! Didn’t you ever hear the term Clinton News Network (CNN)? The media has become ever more liberal in our wonderfully free country. Today most of the TV stations only show the news that promotes their opinions, and those are mostly “Progressive” and not very “Conservative”, why? Again, I don’t know, but I do have my OPINION!
So, if the TV stations and newspapers are all leaniing to the left, what keeps those on the right informed, and equally as biased? Radio talk shows that are successful, tend to be of the conservative viewpoint, why? Again, all I have is my opinion.
What is the goal of this site you might ask? I believe, that if enough information is available, and can be seen in one place, the individual reading it can decide for themselves. If you see the same story, written with opposing viewpoints, maybe the truth is somewhere in the middle? That is my view on this, and is the reason that I am putting the OpinionHead News section together.
Anyone else that shares this belief, and wants to get involved may do so. All of those that believe that “their” view is correct, regardless of which side, left, right or middle is also welcome to help, that is what it is all about! So, keep checking out the site, you will see the changes, and if you want to get involved, just go to the Contact Us page and fill out the form, help me out here, I am just one person, I need you!
