The Independent Media in general has done a great job of counterbalancing the corrupt and mendacious MSM (Mainstream Media). However, it’s disappointing to see how certain leading alternative media researchers, journalists and websites have gotten caught in the trap of duality, anger, judgment, the fraudulent left-right paradigm, blaming false enemies, failing to deeply question MSM narratives and failing to grasp the bigger picture of the worldwide conspiracy.
Election season in the US tends to bring out the worst in people, and this has certainly been no exception inside the Independent Media. For a long time, I have greatly admired people like Jeff Rense, Alex Jones, Stefan Molyneux and others who have done such a great job exposing the conspiracy, but all of them have in one way or another got caught in a “limited hangout” and have taken paths that lead to nowhere. Don’t get me wrong – I still respect them for what they’ve done in the past. However, the topic of Donald Trump and the theme of Islamic terrorism have apparently confused even some of the most seasoned researchers and leaders in the Alternative Media, making me wonder: Have parts of the Independent Media lost their compass?
