If you are becoming less and less satisfied with the quality and scope of the "usual" tv sources like NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, NPR etc. try the following alternative news resource. You may part of a nationwide trend to place more credibility in news gathered by ordinary citizens (along with respected journalists)...than highly staged and choreographed mainstream media news.
Here is one example why...
Regardless of your political opinion regarding the nationwide 'Tea Parties' that will take place tomorrow (April 15), you've got to admit that they are historically very significant. Not since the '60s revolt over the VietNam war has the nation seen such an uprising of its citizenry. Yet, the mainstream media either refuses to give much airtime to these tea parties...or when they do, they mock them as being insignificant.
Pajamas TV has noticed that the mainstream media refuses to cover these tea parties in any depth so pjtv has established citizen reporters at the majority of these tea party events to provide a firsthand report. (Yes, even you could become one of its reporters if you so choose.)
In addition to learning more about the nationwide Tea Parties, pjtv covers a variety of other breaking topics as well.
(No I am not a paid marketer for pjtv. I am just a Pleasanton area citizen like you but I am becoming more and more of a fan of this alternative news resource ... not to mention its parent website of pajamasmedia "dot" com.)
Here is the pjtv link if you are at all curious to learn more about the nationwide TeaParties and other important news items. Please check in from time to time to see how this alternative news site develops over time. It is also becoming more and more respected outside of the US as well.
