"Free and critical minds can emerge only by a return to the source-the primary sources. A free and critical mind takes nothing for granted and is not intimidated by "authorities" who frequently may be more confused than the general public. Free and critical minds seek truth without chauvinism or shame." - Dr. Asa G. Hilliard III (1)



“One single bit of information, if missing, incomplete, out of order or just plain wrong, has the potential to significantly alter thought processes, conclusions, decisions and behaviors, even when that one single logic entry exists in a sea of accuracy.”

Media Madness Codeword News
Unity Consciousness #554

You're in a Public Place

Does this mean when anyone is in a public place, the media, or anyone for that matter, with a camera or recording device can come into the space up close or from a distance and record and ask questions?
Police don't think so. Public courthouses don't think so. Those in charge of public buildings of any type, don't think so.
Try going to a public park and start behaving like the media and you will likely get beat up and arrested.
People in a public place are not obligated to allow carte blanche media access.

We Have A Job To Do

A job does not bestow powers on a person that overrides decency. Doing a job is simply performing duties and responsibilities. A person getting paid to do a job does not give them priority over an individual who is also doing their job to protect their rights to be left alone. So what if I'm in a public space. I am the public. The public space I occupy is mine for the moment and during that time, it's private unless invited. Try going standing next to someone listening to their conversation and taking pictures of them in a public place and see how fast you get arrested. It's bad behavior.
The fact that media has a job to do is not a valid reason to override the rights of individuals.

What is their job? To record what other people are doing so it can be broadcast to the rest of us so we can have a vicarious view of other people's lives while taking a precarious view of what life is about.

It's Our First Amendment Right

According to who? People. What right do people have to override the Rights Of Creation? When media and others fall back on “the First Amendment,” they are making human laws greater than inherent Creator-given rights.
When we resort to the law of humans, we take a shortcut and dangerous detour in our thought process. We set aside our supreme sensibilities for the mindset of those currently in domination. We condone drones to hover over our homes.

The first amendment is not a valid reason for media invasion when people ask not to be bothered.

In their obsessive quest to get the story, the scoop, the inside track, the different angle, media and the public in general have created another monster that resembles who we've become. It's an image we love until the media is in our face and space. There is no difference in the media in general and the paparazzi.
The media is a bully. Listen to the inane questions they ask and watch the Pit Bull behavior when a question is not answered to their satisfaction. It's okay for them to put people on front street and manipulate the clips shown, but let anyone call them out and that person or group will get ad hominem-ized until marginalized in the public's eyes.

Listen to the media reports when the media doesn't get their way. The media is always the good innocent character in the story. In this excusatory manner, media protects their own just like the code blue police. In many ways, the media's bad behavior is codeword news. Nuisance excused with story.

Just in case we haven't noticed, the media goes to extreme lengths to get information and then present it in a non-comprehensive way. Almost never will you ever encounter news or media of any type or length or format on any subject that makes an honest attempt at being comprehensive or objective or fundamentally sound. The very act of their selectivity of what is presented makes the media non-objective. This is to be expected because they are people. None of us should be fooled into ever believing media is even-handed.

The media might be the most informed but they are not the most knowledgeable and should not be trusted as such. There's a vast difference between information and knowledge. It's up to us to take media information and process it and add, subtract and adjust the necessary ingredients until the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats, of the news we choose to chew and eschew, show through.
