About Not Your CBC News

We need news that will inform us of those matters pertinent and critical to our best interests. We want to be apprised of those developments at large (local, provincial, international) that will empower us to make genuinely informed decisions regarding our current and future life trajectories.

We need information that will proactively aid us in conserving and promoting a common good and general well being, with no doubts or pretensions about the crucial role that our extensive natural ecosystems play in the matrix of our human lives. We need information likewise that will identify and warn us of any legitimate, impending threats that would undo us, in order that we may know how and when to best fortify our defenses.

Instead, what we get is a 24-7 chorus of disquieting noise. The corporate mainstream media (MSM) delivers channel upon channel, countless newspapers, a spectrum of radio, and tankers of online content. But don’t we know it all amounts to the same thing: Sponsored editorials and infotainment, designed to manipulate us, to deceive us, to distract us, to divide us, and ultimately, to ruin us.

In the mid 20th century we were lucky to have Marshall McLuhan help us to better understand media. Shortly thereafter, Chomsky and contemporaries blessed us all by exposing the Myth of the Liberal Media and how they Manufacture Consent. With some wise guidance and critical attention, we could at last begin to understand their machinations; how the foul legacy media, beholden to their shareholders and profit demands, as they are beholden to global casino capitalism, will undermine democracy itself to have their way.

So perhaps it should come as no surprise, but the situation has only worsened. Today, not only are those corporate media players ever more aligned by behemoth conglomerate ownership, but they have now synchronized editorially, as common signatories to post-Orwellian ‘One Truth Single Narrative‘ pacts like the Trusted News Initiative.

Now even nation-states are signing on to draconian “Single Truth” news and information alliances. Most recently, the United States and 60 partner countries, including the United Kingdom (UK), Canada, Australia, and members of the European Union (EU), signed a sweeping “Declaration for the Future of the Internet”.

More than ever before we need all the help we can get to find news and information that is not contained, controlled, censored, or otherwise misaligned. Such a collection can not be generated by an algorithm, even a friendly one. It takes some real, living, breathing, alive, awake human spirits to conjure such a medley of news and resources.

And that’s the idea behind Not Your CBC NEWS. We liken ourselves to a virtual info-shop.
