Alternative Media

Alex Jones.  I don’t know if any of my followers listen to or watch the Alex Jones Show, but that it really doesn’t matter if you do or not.  Throughout time, people come along that end up in situations we can all learn from.

I was a communication major in college, and I have a journalism minor, so naturally, I’m in full support of our first amendment.  Yes, I’m in full support of our rights to petition, and speak freely, and if you’re a comm student, you, above all, should be too.

If you had a talk show, it would be your choice to express your opinions about whatever is going on.

Reporting the news is a different story.  If you’re reporting the news, you’re supposed to be neutral and unbiased, which means, reporting the facts.

Shows like the “Alex Jones Show” don’t give you the news like you’d get it at 5 o’clock from your local news station, but that’s okay.  I graduated college in 2003, and between then and now, (17 years) the field of journalism has changed drastically.  Alternative media sources like Alex Jones have given us a completely different perspective on news.

Today, in 2020, the investigative journalist (in my opinion) stands head and shoulders above all because the investigative journalist isn’t just rewriting press releases.

The investigative journalist attempts to expose the biggest news stories regardless of who’s involved, and regardless of how much money is stacked against them.  They’re going to tell you things and reveal stories you might not hear on the nightly news.  That’s a good thing.  We need to be informed.
