Perhaps a new angle on the term ‘News Blackout’.
Social commentary Work on how personal worlds are becoming ever-more colored and darkened when looking out from the inside – blinded to the light – by habitual daily mainstream media news consumption from biased and agenda-ridden reporting in the hard press.
The reverse applies looking in from the outside, the masses blinded to the real world and instead ever more rooted in their opinions the more newspaper & magazine “Infotainment” grabs hold, holds sway, as their reality.

The antidote, thankfully, is to hand in the form of the internet and social media, where the full spectrum of opinion is more or less freely expressed and the individual has a vast pool of information from which to form an educated opinion.. and cast his vote.

Do not accept information from the authorities before checking for its scientific basis in historic medical gold-standard real-world testing and/or its inclusion in experiment law. Examples;
1) There is no proof that vaccines are in any way effective in preventing disease
2) Social distancing as a means of controlling pandemics is not proven and only exists as “effective” in computer modelling.
3) The test for COVID19 is only 20% accurate at best, therefore  80% false-positive cases.

The reality of the newsmedia – a sensationalized superficiality that diverts awareness away
 from  looking within to our own personal everyday – the real news.
