“Arundhati Roy is quoted as saying: “There’s really no such thing as the ‘voiceless’. There are only the deliberately silenced, or the preferably unheard.” For decades and even centuries, the region of the Middle East has been one of the most misunderstood in the world. Those misunderstandings and subsequent stereotypes have supported colonial designs of the past and the Neo-colonial designs of bombing the area back to the Stone Age, as George Bush once said, and stripping it of its heritage, pride and resources.”
This is a great little piece. To error on the RIGHT side of bias, the side that benefits the people and not the man. There’s no better time than right now to see how the media distorts the truth and inserts bias for the sake of the dirty buck. To see it and know that it’s REAL and not just some tin foil hat talking point means we need to stop being lazy and take some time to dig for and support ethical journalism and journalists.
