"We believe the picture painters of the mass media
are artfully creating landscapes for us
which deliberately hide the real picture.
In this book we will show you how to discover
the "hidden picture" in the landscapes presented
to us daily through newspapers, radio and television."
Gary Allen
(1936-1986) American journalist
None Dare Call it Conspiracy, p. 7 (1972)

I haven't read the book but, the first sentence is an astute in the obvious observation.

    The media's job is easy -- fantasy is a multi-billion dollar business. The truth? 'You can't handle the truth!' ;-)

    A lot of journalists get killed trying to report the truth and then there was Watergate

    More bull crap. When we set a policy or take a course of action we try to put our best foot forward. When we have a first date we dress up and put on smelly stuff etcetera. Our we not alweays artfully creating landscapes and hiding our realselves. Give us a break, really! I don't fault those who try to put their best foot forward and yes it is also okay to try to find out the real person, or the real policy.

    They are what they are. The "picture" is what it is because most journalist and news sources think alike. Not because they are controlled. Once you see and understand them it is not hard to read between the lines.

    In a sea of half truths, the whole truth is always shunned by those who would hide it. Many journalist, teachers and preachers have died, been ridiculed, spit upon, named called and basically kept out of business. Publishing and reporting, in a sea of slaves, only those who comply are allowed to speak of Liberty undefined ! Archer nails it downed with a perfect blow ! The "big picture" can be clearly seen and well defined, if one knows where to look. up. Waffler's statement shows the true nature of socialism, hiding deceit and darkness behind a screen of lies. With Patriots on the other hand, What you see is What you get ! Semper Fi

    The media was trying to convince us that Hillary would be just fine as president, that she was such a good person. The "Picture Painters" of the media were painting a very bad picture and thank goodness we didn't buy it.
