Internal Workings Of CNN

By Leo Gura - October 24, 2019

Speaking of the media, here’s an illuminating look into the inner workings of CNN:

I think Jeff Zucker is an intelligent and decent guy, but he does not understand the depth of the problem of what “reporting the truth” means. Truth is much more tricky than merely fact-checking some wrong information, because who gets to say what counts as valid fact-checking? You can’t just assume that “facts” exist! What if “facts” are really how your mind constructs reality? Who’s construction should we trust? Yours? Mine? Jeff Zucker’s? A billionaire’s? An atheist’s? A Muslim’s? A Christian’s? A Buddhist’s? A scientist’s? A white person’s? A black person’s? etc. What if each person has their own “facts”? What do you do then?

I’d like you to notice that everything talked about in the above video is really an issue of epistemology (human knowledge). The question of “What is true?” is an epistemic question. Notice that this question is not merely philosophical, it has serious real-world consequences. How do you maintain a high quality society when people cannot agree with each other’s perspectives on truth, or when some segments of society have really warped versions of truth? How do we deal with that as a society? How does CNN deal with it? How does Facebook deal with it? How does Google deal with it? How do you deal with it? How do your parents deal with it? What if the majority of the population believe in falsehood? How do you go about correcting that when they believe it’s a fact?

Notice how challenging and deep this issue is. This is not merely a Trump problem. Epistemology has been a root problem for mankind since the dawn of civilization. We are always arguing about what is true, what is reasonable, what is biased, what is opinion, what is fact, and what is the proper interpretation of things. Have you wondered about why this is? What causes this? You’d think that if reality was an objective fact, we’d all agree on it by now. You’d think that if reality was an objective fact it would be impossible to mislead people about it. Yet human history shows the opposite. Masses of people are mislead all the time. How can this be? And can you be sure you aren’t one of those who’s misled? After all, if people are easy to mislead, you are person, therefore you must be easy to mislead.

Notice that before one can answer the question of the proper way to act, or make any proper plans, one must first answer the question of What is true? If your perspective of reality is so distorted that you see the world upside-down, your plans and actions will also be upside-down, doubling down on the problem. The solution to any serious problem is, first and foremost, to see the problem with undistorted perception. In many cases taking that first step is enough to resolve the problem. But most people want to jump straight into action, ignoring the first step by dismissing it as “mere philosophy” or “theory”. But what good is pressing the accelerator pedal when you haven’t first figured out which direction is True North? Undistorted perception is NOT “just theory”.

Life’s most important problems can only be solved by a shift in perspective & understanding. In such cases, there’s something deep you’re not conscious of about the problem which makes it manifest over and over again, and it will not stop until you see through to the root of it by properly using your mind.

Most problems are the result of the improper use of one’s mind. Think about that.

People who casually blame CNN, The New York Times, “main stream media”, “Jewish media”, Hollywood elites, Silicon Valley, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and yes, even Fox News, do not understand the depth of the epistemic problem. The problem of disseminating “truth” is the most challenging problem that mankind has ever faced. We still haven’t figured out how to do in over 10,000 years of trying. Schools, universities, parents, government, the media, science, religion, and every spiritual school all face this fundamental problem. Devils will ALWAYS corrupt the purest sources of truth because falsehood is necessary for survival. Not understanding this triples the problem.

When you understand the depth of what I’m saying here you will realize that epistemology is the most important topic that mankind can study, research, or teach. Yet precisely because this is so, it is not studied or taught almost at all. Devils are not interested in epistemology. It doesn’t suite their schemes. So our problem then becomes: how do you teach 7 billion devils proper epistemology when their lives hinge on them not learning it? This problem is more challenging and more important to solve than the problem of building a colony on Mars. Yet it gets no attention and no funding.
