    The media wants us to be unhappy!

    Hereís something Iíve noticed in recent years and Iíd love to hear your opinions. Maybe this post isnít in the right place but I do believe it is part of the ongoing assault on our belief systems.

    Many mainstream media channels have a comedy / light-hearted period in their evening line-ups. For example maybe an hour or two where they play shows like South Park / American Dad / Stand-up comedy or whatever.

    Many of us tune into them because we want a break from the serious shit that life throws at us and just want to laugh at something for a while. But lately, right in the middle of the line-up, we are forced to watch a ďnews bulletinĒ for 5-10 minutes.

    Whatís this shit about? Donít they want us to be happy even for a few hours? Can they not allow us a little bit of happiness without bringing us down again?

    I get it with the sad adverts Ė these poor people/abused animals need your help Ė I donít buy it and I donít like it but business is business. But whatís going on with the news updates? I just donít get it!

    What do you think? Am I imagining things? Iíd love to hear your views.

    So I see, but it ain't much. Frog was picked so it wouldn't stir the shit, which is more than you can say.

    I've no intention of "stirring shit", but I've no intention of taking any either. I chose the name because I thought it might get a laugh but maybe some people have no sense of humour!

    And as for my intro "not being much", all I can say is it's more than some I've read. If you have any problems with it well, ask and ye shall receive.

    Re: The media wants us to be unhappy!

    The choice of name is naturally your business. But when you pick a dumb name and get a dumb reaction, well some of it's on you. Not all, but some. People who've picked provocative names here before you often proved out to be trolls. So strange names are suspicious to some of us. Sorry if I got the wrong idea about you.

    It's all good man. I expect some pushback everywhere I go and have learned not to get overworked about it. Life's short - be happy .

    Re: The media wants us to be unhappy!

    I've read Sir Jackoff's intro and find it to be a bit lacking in depth (I'm on my fourth whiskey, my depth perception could be off) but it seems to be a valid intro nonetheless.
    I say welcome aboard, good Sir.

    Intros are a good screening tool, but I've never found a single one non-MGTOW to get very far here before tipping their hand.

    Re: The media wants us to be unhappy!

    The News is a show where they wish you "Good morning" and then proceed with a list of dismal reasons why it isn't.

    Adverts are the same. Every advert appeals to the negative somehow and sit-coms (and other shows) always have a misery angle, an issue or social engineering bye-line. Some good Black-comedies get through though but not many, and so I've not watched the telly this century except for accidentally.

    Not being particularly holy or virtuous I download the best shows onto a couple of storage drives using a filesharing site and multi-host downloader then there's no news, no adverts and no miserable cunts masquerading as comics.
    Flow with whatever may happen and let your mind be free. Stay centered by accepting whatever you are doing. This is the ultimate. Zhuangzi

    someone asked the poet Sophocles: "How are you in regard to sex, Sophocles? Can you still make love to a woman?" Hush man, the poet replied, I am very glad to have escaped from this, like a slave who has escaped from a mad and cruel master."

    Dont worry about me. Worry about why you're worried about me.

    Re: The media wants us to be unhappy!

    This is just one of the many reasons most MGTOW's don't watch TV. Or if they do, they don't watch public broadcast or cable, but stream it; usually for free.

    It's all programming. The "news bulletins" are propaganda, telling us what to think. The advertisements are also propaganda, telling us our life is incomplete without a product. They play on our insecurities. Hatred of men is present in the news and advertising, as well as most current movies and shows.

    If you want to watch movies and tv shows, you basically have to stream older materials. Movies with Arnold Schwarzenegger or Clint Eastwood are my personal favorites, or really any westerns. And I pretty much don't watch any tv shows that started after the 90's.

    Re: The media wants us to be unhappy!

    Everything nowadays seems to have a feminist flavor to it. Of course, that's been going on for a while now. I recall when cable first came out. The idea of a dedicated signal being fed directly into your tuner with a crystal clear signal on every channel (and so many channels...like ten back then) was a new and exciting concept for consumers. The catch was you had to pay for it. But, why pay to watch TV? Isn't that what sponsors are for? Oh! The subscription means there will be no commercials? That's different. I forget when that changed, but it did. The media tried to tell me what to think, how to think, and not to think. Why pay for that?

    Re: The media wants us to be unhappy!

    I usually download anything I want to see but sometimes I just can't be arsed, especially if its late at night and I've had a few. As for all the brainwashing I must agree, but so long as your aware of it, annoying as it is, all it does is reinforce what everyone here already knows to be true.
    Also I don't pay for it. The U.K. has a free satellite service called freesat that we can receive here. Over a hundred channels of pure drivel for the most part, but you do get the odd good documentary or satirical show.

    After reading a number of other intro's I tried to provide the pertinent info to try to show that I'm genuine. I didn't want to bore everyone to death with a complete life history, and omitted some personal stuff that I deemed unnecessary, however, if there's anything else you would like to know I am only too happy to oblige - within reason of course.
    I would however request that such questions be put at my intro post so I don't have to repeat myself.

    just me..

    Re: The media wants us to be unhappy!

    I gave up on TV around 2008 or 2009 when it went from analog to digital broadcasting. At that time the old TV I had was not compatible with the new system unless I purchased a converter box. My old TV was a quality built Curtis Mathis that was a good set. Never had any problems to speak of for it's 15 years of life (at that time). But that system switch was not the reason for me giving up on Programs....it helped me to decide but it wasn't the deciding factor.

    I had grown up during the 60's with shows like The "Wild Wild West" "Star Trek" "Gilligan's Island" "Gun Smoke" and the likes.
    As an adult I would ask where were all the good shows that had a lesson or where it was based on some type of morality for the theme , or just plain funny entertainment . Everything that aired during the 70's and and onward... starting with Archy Bunker and "All in the family" , seemed to have an agenda behind it (programing!) to promote fringe behavior and liberal ideology as to being equal to what we thought of as "Normal".
    Then came the late 80's and up thru the 2000's and all nite time TV was ridiculous Sitcoms. Not only were they idiotic to start with, but each show was based on a "Family" of sorts where the beautiful wife was empowered, the Daughter was "perfect" and the snot nosed 7 yo son was a freaking "Kewl" genius.
    And in all these shows the Dear Ole Dad was an overweight bald bumbling idiot with an IQ of a rock.

    To sum it all up, here is what we have in our world today. A carbon copy of those damn sitcoms as a NORMAL now. WTF?
    I mean stop and look around at the situation......it's right there in your face everywhere you turn in society now. The women run it,.. the kids manipulate it, and the poor blue-pilled man is marginalized to being a non-person to just pick up the tab for it all while he pines away in hopes of maybe getting a courtesy or pity fuck for his efforts.

    Screw that shit....I have no idea what is on TV these days...but by looking around at the world I see now I can only imagine the pure garbage and filth being pumped into the masses

    Re: The media wants us to be unhappy!

    Yeah this is definitely not new. It's been a part of media programming for awhile now. I was able to ignore it because I don't watch TV too often, only to keep up with some current events as well as sports but ever since the election of 2016 and Kaepernick taking a knee within that same year, PC culture has bled itself into the one thing on TV that helps me escape from reality. I don't like politics being injected into my shows and most definitely not sports. I can rarely even enjoy anything Star Wars or Marvel related anymore since Disney owns them and injected their identity politics into whatever they release.

    Re: The media wants us to be unhappy!

    American TV used to like to play tear jerker movies on Sunday night. My guess is they wanted all the wage slaves to go to bed thinking they got it OK before starting another week Monday morning.
