The reason why the alternative media has sprung up all around the Western world is because the mainstream media is not doing its job. Instead of objectively and neutrally reporting on the news, it has become overwhelmingly biased and one-sided, representing and promoting the agenda of the secular left.
Thus the alternative media is playing a crucial role in offering a genuine flow of information and communication, without which no free and democratic nation can survive. This site has documented the need for this on many occasions.
As yet one more example of how the radical leftist minority groups are in bed with the MSM, consider a recent article in the Melbourne Age. The Age is a regular and fervent promoter of the homosexual agenda, and will give this activist group plenty of free air time, and plenty of opportunities to push its crusade.
The article, appearing in its entertainment section, had this headline: “An open-mic policy is the pride of Joy”. It had to do with a Melbourne homosexual radio station, and how it supposedly allows all sorts of people to express their views.
Judging by this article, these are the most open and tolerant bunch of people around, forever allowing opposing points of view an equal hearing. The article mentions several people who have appeared on the show as examples of this great openness and tolerance.
The trouble is, most of these were secular lefties themselves, who are often quite supportive of the homosexual agenda. Only two of those mentioned in the article were genuine conservatives, but those two need some further explanation. The first genuine conservative mentioned who appeared in a Joy interview was Tony Abbott.
Again, judging from this greatly partial article, the reader would get the impression that Abbott and other conservatives or those concerned about the homosexual agenda appear on the station all the time. Of course the truth is otherwise.
Abbott appeared for good reason: he may one day be our Prime Minister, and also, because he had just made his comments about feeling somewhat uncomfortable about homosexuality. So this was simply an issue dear to the heart of those at Joy, and a big fish worth grilling on this topic.
So who was the other conservative that Joy so graciously invited along? Well, me, actually. Yes I was on recently, but once again, if you only had this quite misleading article to go by, you would think that I and other religious conservatives are on this radio station all the time.
Misinformation, lies and deception can be peddled as much by what is being said as by what is not being said. In this case the Joy spokesperson, along with the Age writer, both conveniently left out all sorts of vital information, so that a very skewed picture might emerge.
So why was I on Joy? Because I had just co-authored a debate book on same-sex marriage. The publicist for the book had been working overtime to get both myself and my sparring partner, homosexual activist Rodney Croome, on to as many media outlets as possible.
Thus during that period Croome and I had nearly a dozen debates, especially on various radio stations, including Joy. So I was there alright, but so was Croome, and it was a debate in which I first made my case, then Croome made his. So it had nothing to do with Joy having a policy of regularly inviting people on who strongly disagree with them.
This had nothing to do with how “open” and willing Joy is to get all sorts of points of views on board. This was simply a means by which Croome and his version of events could again be promoted on the station – which is fair enough. You of course expect the homosexual media to feature homosexual activists to promote the cause.
But the uninformed person reading the article would think that Joy is the most open-minded, balanced and fair media outlet out there. However, I happened to keep listening to Joy after my ‘interview’ was finished, and Rodney Croome came on to do his thing.
The two Joy interviewers who feigned sweetness and light while I was on, quickly resorted back to attack mode, speaking about how irrational and foolish I was, and how I had no arguments to offer. They then of course gave Rodney a dream run to stick his boots into me, and push his claims without opposition or hard question, which I received.
So much for an “open-mic” policy. So much for balance, objectivity and fairness. But as I say, one expects this from a homosexual media outlet. But one does not expect – or should not expect – the MSM to push such a deceptive and misleading piece of propaganda for the homosexual activists.
But sadly, the story does not end there. As I mentioned, I did quite a few interviews and debates on this topic, mostly with various ABC radio stations. Except for one rather balanced debate (which incredibly Croome complained about!), every single other one of these were just as hostile, antagonistic and prejudiced against me as the homosexual radio station was!
Indeed, the so-called moderators of these debates were clearly gunning for me, while they gave Rodney a free ride. I was asked the hard and loaded questions, while my opponent was treated as if royalty. And this is our taxpayer funded ABC in action.
It has gone so far over to advocacy, indoctrination, and secular – left agenda pushing, that most ABC stations are indistinguishable from homosexual radio stations. Thus the two are in clear collusion to push agendas, and to deceive the majority by unbalanced and grossly misleading reporting.
As I say, no wonder the alternative media has taken off so quickly and so effectively. People are becoming sick and tired of the MSM which has long ago declared war on the very values and beliefs of most of its listeners. As long as this is occurring, the only option we have is to fight back with alternative media. Thus this website and many others like it.
