Step 3 of the Global Walkout
Cancel the lamestream media
If you haven’t yet heard of the Global Walkout, you can catch up here:
Step 3 has been announced, and it’s a vital one: unsubscribe from all mainstream media outlets: delete or hide the generic news apps that come pre-installed on your phone and devices, and unfollow all the social media and YouTube channels of all mainstream media outlets.
In addition, try to avoid mainstream media for at least one week, even if the headline is intriguing. Remember that these headlines are more often than not clickbait - they’re crafted to capture your attention, but often the content of the article doesn’t match the headline. Regardless, it’s the headline that tends to stick in your mind, and this is how dominant narratives are crafted and maintained.
Visit Step 3 to find a printout explaining why we should break up with mainstream media, and talking points to help you start conversations with strangers, friends and family.
Mainstream media have acted as mouthpieces for the biosecurity state apparatus throughout the manufactured COVID crisis, drumming up unwarranted fear, lionising pro-establishment figures, slandering and defaming dissenting doctors and scientists, and presenting the corrupt pharmaceutical industry as saviours.
Quality investigative journalism is moribund in the mainstream media, but it’s alive and well in the independent media.
Here are some of my favourite independent media channels:
Corbett Report. Open source journalism at its best.
The Last American Vagabond. Daily shows that take you behind the news headlines.
UK Column. Twice weekly show with a UK/Europe-centric slant.
Off-Guardian. Everything The Guardian fails at, done brilliantly.
