  Every mainstream media network today has turned to complete shit.
The amount of shit they lie about openly is just horrifying.

What would you good boys do, and can you enlighten me on what started the mainstream medias downfall?

Yet another victim of the "muh past was so much better" meme.

Media has always been shit. Look up crap in the past like yellow journalism, the media war between William Hearst and Joseph Pullitizer, or the history of tabloid journalism.

We know modern media is shit because we no longer have to rely on just their biased crocked reporting. There are alternatives sources of news, there are piles and piles of research material proving or disproving bullshit, there are entire websites dedicated to disproving bullshit, and every person with a phone that doesn't suck (everyone but me) has it in their pocket at all times.

Like this dude said in >>34207 you are under the not at all accurate assumption that the past is better. You see things through rose tinted googles, only know a condensed version of history that leaves out all the bad.

Mostly everything wrong today has existed for a long, long time before now.

Remember this movie? that was 1976.

Media has the ability to erase history by simply not mentioning failures of the media. This means every failure of the media is forgotten in the scant few moments after it happens.

All they have to do is keep the total outrage at the media below a "fuck you" threshold of the current generation of people, and they're golden.

There are signs that the internet will degrade the media ability to erase history, since the internet remembers everything. Hence the rapid drop in publics confidence of media since 1990s.

The advent of the 24 hour cable news channel. When there is not enough actual news to fill the 24 hours, you need to sensationalize stories to maintain ratings.

  Mind alteringly good if you are a giant hipster like me. This particular song is pretty par for the course for their style.

  So when I first started listening to this album I hated it because I wanted my old hexvessel back.

But then as I progressed through I realized I had no reason to hate it.

They basically put on their King Crimson/Doors/etc hats on and rocked it the fuck out.

Presumably because it is pretty hard for them to travel thousands of kilometres, earn money and return home to feed their family.

  My Sirius radio ran out so I need stuff to listen to. What's good?

I've been getting stuff off BBC and just downloaded a bunch of Sawbones eps. (From Inrange Karl's recommendation.)

BBC Inquiry

Dr. Sydnee McElroy and her husband Justin welcome you to Sawbones: A Marital Tour of Misguided Medicine.

I'm a fan of Dan Carlin's history stuff. It's a bit on the pop history side but it's great for if you want a general overview of a topic.

I enjoyed listening to Detective a while back. I haven't listened to the new season though.

  >Next, I made a rotary fan from two pieces of bark that slot together at right angles to each other to form a simple 4 bladed paddle wheel about 20 cm in diameter and 5 cm tall. The blades of the fan were not angled and were designed only to throw air outwards away from the axle when spun.

>I collected orange iron bacteria from the creek (iron oxide), mixed it with charcoal powder (carbon to reduce oxide to metal) and wood ash (flux to lower the melting point) and formed it into a cylindrical brick.

>A taller furnace called a bloomery was generally used in ancient times to produce usable quantities of iron and consumed more charcoal, ore and labour.

  Listen, I don't care if you think the originals weren't great (the numbers prove you're a revisionist if you do), or if the Feig version's gonna be any good (whether in watchabilility or as in 2x production and marketing budget).

All I know is I like the Fall Out Boy / Missy Elliot cover and the advertisement campaigns are deliciously shilly.

Roeper blasted it. The paid bloggers who cried misogyny wrote their purple prose to promote it. At best, it looks like some of these guys deliberately withheld honest opinions in favor of political posturing. Also some shenanigans going on in ghostbusters, movies and moviescirclejerk subleddits, i.e. shill accounts asking loaded questions and cherry picking shitposts to screenshot and write articles about.

I'm not one to believe movies are art, but even if I did, I'd still fail to understand how social capital and civil rights of women or minorities is supposed to be positively vested in Hollywood schlock like this, as the critical theorists believe.
