Ever watch a news program from another country? Besides BBC? I have DirecTV, and they have this channel, Link, and it broadcasts news from a variety of different countries.

It is interesting, this look into the world. True, most of the programs are only a half hour in length, but they do open a window to the rest of the world. I have discovered that Americans are so obsessed with bitching and fighting about politics, yet, we do not really see what is going on outside of our borders. I have seen in watching these other shows, they report on events obviously affecting them immediately, and then they report on how our economy HERE, affects them, how who is President here, affects them. It's an eye opener on just how much influence American has on other countries. Don't get me wrong here, those other countries have a major influence on us also.

Link


And you don't need DirecTV or Dish to see Link, there is a website and YouTube channels one can watch it on. I remember watching it a few years back when I switched to DirecTV from cable, and I saw news from Singapore, Australia, Austria, Turkey, and Israel, to name a few. It also has programs of music around the world. That is some fascinating stuff! I liked the one I caught with traditions in Celtic music.

I just wonder...with the world open to us, how many have really, and I mean REALLY, checked out the rest of the world? I admit freely that I haven't done so as much as I should have. But I now have Link on my list of favorite channels and plan on trying to watch it more often, and check out more online. It really is quite fascinating.

With the U.S. being center stage over the last 60-70 years, and a lot of other countries being somewhat jealous and bias towards us, I have never felt the need to watch a lot of the news outside of the U.S.

I won't even bother watching some of the U.S. left wing drivel networks, and there's a lot of them in this country.

Fox News has more than it's share anymore of left wing drivel than it used to be. More than what I can say for CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, and NBC only having left wing drivel, with no one representing people on the right. Totally one-sided.

The thing is, all news for the US is scripted. We, as a nation, never get told the whole story. How many times were there sit ins at banks across the country, and it was never reported the police broke the rally up by force. People should get on youtube and look at news reports. I know not everything is real, but if only 10percent of those things are accurate, we are being lied to.

We are all being oppressed in many ways. The news is just one way to keep the sheep in line. We are undereducated, taxed to death, work to much, and arent allowed to enjoy our families. Those kinds of things open the mind and let people think for themselves...........

Thank you for allowing me to post.uhh
