Okay so can we all agree that the Media gives us the info they want us to know and that there is some brain washing going on?
like whats the wrong and right way to do this or that, what’s really cool for teens and kids to look like and dress, race stereotypes (Peopel really believe this crap...and sad to say i was a victim one to many times)…ect
What would you want to see covered in the news more?? what topics...good, bad, and the ooogly
I watch the news most every afternoon, evening and night…and it’s the same things over and over with sometimes stupid breaking news stories that make me want to throw my meat cleaver at the flat!!
For instance half the time I hear some crazy news, or great news, or odd..ect its off the net and im glad that I can at least find it there, BUT we all know that the Media has a way of making people believe whatever they say…so why not cover some more important things, why not ask the people what they want to see covered in the news…
I was watching this documentary about an everyday guy and his wife who decided to have a home birth with their first child, they started filming with there own camcorder and just asking questions and interviewing people and doctors and nurses all over.
before their baby was born they compiled some astounding facts about the Baby delivery system and insurance company’s, and how many things have changed like the mind set of people and how they view having a baby.
They went on the streets and one of the questions they asked, “Is it better to have your child in your home or a hospital” 9 times out of 10 people said Hospital incase something goes wrong.( and that is very true things can start off perfect for a mother and child and then wham….something goes wrong…but how often do things go wrong vs. everything going right??)
They also pointed out these facts: (but the movie is a few years old so I looked some of it up..but if any of you find better facts post em, I would like to know…and Thanks)
-The US has a high infant morality rate ranking number 34 in the world (we should be a little NO a lot higher then that with all the Technology we have) in the movie we were number 28…so it has gotten worse :-/
-Most often women get C-sections if the baby is breeched instead of trying to turn the baby the right way…in some places its not even taught or nurses don’t use what they know
-The C-section rate has shot up 32% and climbing
(these are just a few that I can remember off the top of my head…may need to go back and review)
They had a few doctors saying how they have heard stories or have known of other doctors lying about how many centimeters a women is just so they can get her in to have a C-section and be done with it.
The fact that many doc’s don’t really want to be waiting around for 24hr or more…when they can have the C-section and be done in 20-30min
Things like this..if I had never seen that documentary I would have thought C-section no big deal, or the fact that the hospital is WAY more dirty then your home. That women are stronger then they realize and how the hell did women have baby’s way back when before all the technology we have now..I know lots of babies died…but I think way more babies die now then before and that should not be with all the technology we have…RIGHT?
**This goes for us all..not just US
Where you live…how well does the MEDIA tell the truth or relay important news**
