I thought crazy rants weren't allowed on here.
My aim wasn't to rant. I know it sounds crazy...but, just for a minute...think about it.
Think...what you would be without the media. free...perhaps.
If you disagree, just explain why its crazy. XD
I call it crazy because you've presented a disorganized argument questioning both free will and the honesty of the media, both valid questions, but then proceed to tie the concepts together. I offer that what the media chooses to report on has absolutely no bearing on your ability to control your own actions, thoughts, and life. If you choose to believe the media's drivel, that is but another expression of free will.
Now, if we were to approach the questions separately, we may have a constructive discussion in the making. Of course, we would also get nowhere, unless you want to accept consent as a method of proof, because people have been arguing about these questions for a very long time with no universal conclusion as of yet reached.
I would also point out that life without the media doesn't necessarily make you free. There's a reason why dictators often heavily restrict and control the media; an open source of news is apparently a great boon to the cause of freedom. Imagine that.
