In A New Segment, I Dissect What The Dumb Media Is And Isn’t Covering

As the recent media blitz surrounding fake Jon Benet murder suspect John Mark Karr has shown us, the mainstream media (MSM) is completely clueless about what IS and ISN’T news. Since everyone is so confused, I’ll give you a breakdown on what news IS and ISN’T. Mostly the MSM isn’t giving you real news, but infotainment, and many important stories that I’m bringing up have not yet even been noticed by the MSM.
