The NewsTrust format and idea are interesting for the possibility of a democratically influenced news source. It provides another channel for getting news and views out to the public, a channel without a visible filter of the corporate press.

The Seattle Times gives free advertizing to Republicans and provides mediocre news coverage, other than an occasional special feature. Into this gap springs The Stranger, which realizes there are political and social problems, and generates the most spirited, obscene, and entertaining journalism and political commentary available in town. This is fun reading, even if you do not know the politicians; and hilariously frank and disrespectfully truthful when you know many of the candidates.

With the propaganda of war glorifying the Israeli weapons, this is a nugget of informed science of the statistical poverty of the weaponry. Even Amy seems astounded at the possibility that the big lie here may actually be a lie. The glory of an alleged wonderful defensive system may serve to distract from the horrors of the slaughter on the ground in Gaza.

Missile defense is a farce, meant to create a false sense of security and fuel the military industrial complex. Offense is cheaper than defense, and any smart offense can either outnumber or outsmart defensive missiles. The missiles being launched out of Gaza are neither smart nor accurate, and yet many get through and create random damage.

This is good journalism in that it provides important critical reporting on bias in mainstream media in the reporting of wars of the U.S. and client states of the U.S., in this case the right wing war party in power in Israel. The fact that this has happened at several mainstream corporate owned media outlets suggests how much of a corrupted media we have. The biased infotainment of biased war porn is destroying the democratic need for an informed public on the most important subjects of our modern society. What news can you trust?
