Info News and Its Influence on the Media
“I’m not saying Info News is bad, far from it. I’m just saying that it can sometimes be a double-edged sword” – Steve McKee In fact, the most famous Info News entry of all time, “The Green Papers” by Paul Barrett, accurately paints a picture of how hard Info News can be on some people. This article is a good example of how some news releases are misinterpreted by the public, which is often times completely in the dark as to what they are actually saying.
Let’s begin by examining the statement made by Mr. Barrett in his opening sentence; “But the truth is that the press has a lot of power. The free press has a lot of power. They are the people who make government leaders look bad.” What is meant by this statement is that those in the government who would normally be shooed away from power due to their associations with organized crime or their being involved in scandals will be swept into office because they will be the one standing between the citizenry and their elected leader. So, while it is true that the press does have a lot of power, I would submit to you that the abuse of the power that Info News can so easily obtain is at the very least overstated. Perhaps a more accurate word to use would be “overstated.”
Of course, it is not wrong to say that the press can have an effect on the voters but it is simply not accurate to say that the power of Info News is absolute. I also would submit to you that the reason why the average person does not fully understand what is being said is because the press is rarely interested in their viewpoint. You see, most folks just want to hear the words Business Man, Business Woman or Corporal before their name. They are the ones who will be making the sales. They are the ones who will be heading the boardrooms and they are certainly not going to be listening to any discourse by a self-confident businesswoman with years of experience in the stock market or the oil and gas business.
There are only two reasons for this and they are: (a) because the news is controlled by the powerful and (b) because it is written and controlled by one company that really does care about its industry. Yes, I did say one company and it is not a small company; it is the largest company in the world and it cares about its industry. It wants you to succeed, to make money and to create jobs. It’s a great company to work for and it is a perfect example of what I am talking about. These are the people who own Info News and they write very interesting and informative articles.
The point I am trying to make here is that if the reader believes that there is some deep, dark conspiracy behind the information that they are reading then they will shut down. I am sure that a lot of the folks who are reading this article don’t even realize that there is a conspiracy. They just read what they feel is current information and that is usually enough for them. In other words, the average Joe doesn’t have a whole lot to worry about.
This is not the case with businesses and the big industries in the world. Companies need to find a way to stay relevant in today’s world and Info News is providing them with just that. By providing current and engaging news articles, we provide the consumers and businesses with something valuable. I think once you start reading through some of the issues that are being written about in this unique style of news and entertainment, you will understand where the importance of relevance lies and why it is so important. Please consider all this and think on it.
