Entering the third decade of the new millennium, the UK is patently witnessing end-times for the few remaining vestiges of news reporting-accuracy and balance within its mainstream media. Those in the industry, charged with delivering authentic news and current affairs to the public, are having their training and hard-won skillsets inexorably undermined and compromised.
Hampered from honest reporting by corrupt print and television media-owning plutocrats, many a serious journalist lives in fear of career limitation or even termination by presenting accurately stories and events that happen to be politically or financially inconvenient to those already fiscally well-situated and in positions of power.
Acting under masks of unbiased neutrality, those few who succeed with promotion to mainstream media eminence are invariably enabled by dint of genuine or feigned allegiance to the aims and ambitions of that powerful elite; thus perpetuating an insidious system of subtle propaganda that has in the past soft-soaped the population into accepting stringent financial impositions, restrictions and even illegal war as absolute necessities.

Dada; being initially a literary expression of war protest is well represented through this image – an accurate photographic metaphor of the times we live in.
Going forward, the way out from this long-standing media-maintained impasse is through the individual engaging with his innate human potential for true perception, as against blindly accepting increasingly tiresome external impositions of reality.
” When a lie is seen as a lie, the false as false; in that very perception is reality, truth ”
