"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

This is a good article, thanks for posting it rangerrebew.  I really like the idea of a "Citizen Media" to replace the Mainstream Media.  We have to overcome the influence of the MSM, and we CAN - because of our numbers. 

If each of us became our own media outlet - if each of us broadcast news that we know is NOT being disseminated to the country, I think it would make a difference.  We all have a way that we reach people, and we should use that venue to reach people with what is really going on in the world and here.  We should be roving free-lance journalists!  With our smartphones and the internet, anytime we see "news" we should record it and report it.  Some people do Facebook and Twitter (I don't) and I know you can reach a lot of people there.  Most of us have some sort of "network" that we are part of, and this can be where we broadcast what we think is newsworthy.

We have to render the media powerless before we can even begin to fix what's wrong.
