Default Govt paid Indo/Sindo/IrishTime to boost Project 2040

https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/a...e-0477b9927049


So journos were asked/paid to write favourable pieces re Project 2040 by FG , and people call this place a proper democracy.

Manipulation of perception is what Govt does to a docile ,bovine and insouciant populations.
Distraction by irrelevancies such as soap operas and sport events is another trick of the trade of Govt.
They treat us as mushrooms and feed us manure as news.
Nothing new here , 2000 years ago the Romans had Bread and Circuses, we get Beer and Bono,

Get them to repay, to provide some scrutiny of the Project they were supposed to write about, we all suffer without a free and independent press.

A FREE AND INDEPENDENT PRESS went the way of the Dodo bird a long time ago. It is as rare a Chicken Lips or rocking horse doo-doo.
It is difficult to speak Truth to Power, when your job,paycheck, mortgage, pension and car loan depend on parroting the lie to keep the unwashed masses in their sublime ignorance,

Well i certainly do and it has has harding hitting facts about uncomfortable subjects that are omitted by the press in the Anglo American speaking world. Inlight of attempts in America to harass and censor news sites that are unfavourable to their ruling elites.
