The mainstream news just seems to get sillier and shallower with each passing day. Our world is becoming incredibly unstable, corruption is everywhere, we are on the verge of another massive economic crisis, government debt is absolutely exploding, war could erupt in the Middle East at any time and signs of deep social decay are everywhere and yet the mainstream media seems absolutely obsessed with reporting on celebrities and scandals. It would be nice if the mainstream media would do a lot more true investigative reporting and would actually try to answer some of the difficult questions that we are being faced with. Unfortunately, most of what passes for "news" these days is essentially just "infotainment". That is one of the reasons why we have seen such a surge in the popularity of alternative news outlets in recent years. People are searching for the truth, and they know that they are not getting much of it from the mainstream media these days.

"Zimmerman stocks up on Cheetos in jail"
"Axl Rose robbed of $200,000 worth of jewelry"
"Custom Car Builder Claims Hot Wheels Stole His Truck"
"Lighter Side of 'Tanning Mom'"
"Nudist expo bares all in naked tourist industry"
It must be a slow news day, right?
Our world is changing faster than ever before and bombshell stories are breaking at a pace that is really hard to keep up with.

Four eyewitnesses on the hotel staff told me Willard Mitt Romney was here at Bilderberg 2012. My four eyewitnesses place him inside. That's one more than Woodward and Bernstein used. Romney's office initially refused to confirm or deny his attendance as Bilderberg is "not public". They later said it was not him.

Enough is enough. It's time for Congress to step in and demand accountability from Administrator Pistole"
