This world we live in is constantly being distorted by the people who control our culture. The television, the radio and our music have been corrupted—There’s no other way around it. If you are still skeptical of the corruption that runs through the mainstream media look no further than the evening news, which is owned by the same corporations and banks that created the Libor scandal. So it’s no wonder why the news doesn’t spend any time reporting these crimes—It’s better for them if we don’t know what’s going on. Their agenda is to flood the airways with news about celebrities and threats many of us will confront, but the Libor scandal is something that affects us all.
Here is a graphic researched and created by Ben Dimiero of MediaMatters.com. In this graphic, it is easy to see how much time the evening news devoted to the Libor scandal: hardly any.
This scandal is bad news for Wall Street and everything they’ve affected… and they’ve affected everyone because the Libor index is used in every aspect from our lives. To say the least, this scandal represents the failure of our economic system—and that is saying a lot. I know a lot of people who think, “How does this affect me?” Well, if you bought a car, a house, or paid for anything worth a decent amount of money, you’ve been cheated by Wall Street and their pals. So this scandal affects you because you’ve had your money stolen from you. Whether or not we choose to care that Wall Street cheated us is up to us, but if a robber came into our house and stole our flat screen, PS3 or Macbook Pro, we’d be outraged. So why not be mad about this?
Because many of us don’t want to upset the system and risk losing what semblance of a free life we have left.
What makes this even more ridiculous is the fact that these banks were involved in shorting the American economy all while handing out millions in bonuses and receiving welfare in the form of bailouts from the American taxpayer.
