Watching television or most of main stream media, including newspapers and many Hollywood movies is very distasteful to us. The mindset that creates much, but not all, of the programming on television and in cinema is abhorrent. It makes people into commodities and promotes violence. It reduces our intelligence and numbs our natural empathetic response to someone in pain.

“As Muslims, we are meant to stand against injustice and oppression, regardless of who the perpetrator is, even if it is our own family. As Muslims, we are meant to protect the weak and needy, care for the poor and hungry. Things that seem a million miles away from the images that have recently appeared in the newspapers and on our television screens with far too much regularity.”
Russell Brand The Trews Ep 57 feat. Alastair Campbell
On today’s Trews: Loan sharks, freedom of the press, the rise of UKIP, taxing billionaires and more.
I give you the true news so you don’t have to invest any money in buying newspapers that charge you for the privilege of keeping your consciousness imprisoned in a tiny box of ignorance and lies.
