Translating the Truth

Has the United States or the Western World ever attacked another nation with military force, who’s leaders are too liberal. Have we not always attack nations that we consider to be a militaristic threat that are run by conservative fundamentalist often with religious extremists running the country. Where they speak another language other than English. So when ever we get any information from the government officials from the other side. The interpretation and translation are edited by our government intelligence agencies and mainstream mass media and then passed onto the American people.

Too often our interpretations and translations of our adversaries government’s messages are disseminated by those with an agenda. Whether it is to sell more news papers, get higher ratings or to deepen the divide in building the case to go to war. They will use the most inflammatory rhetoric to do this. The question is the messages of our adversaries. How accurate are the translations that are disseminated in the mainstream mass media to the American people. Maybe this is part of why we have never gone to war with a nation of people who speak the same language.

This could be part of the reason why more and more younger America’s people are turning to the The Daily Show and the Colbert Report for their news. When Jon Stewart of the Daily Show has guests who report more accurately the true facts and realities on the ground of the Palestinian crisis. Is this why the Daily Show and the Colbert Report are considered to be such a satiric show compared to the mainstream mass media news. Or could it be that the Daily Show and the Colbert Report satire is so much less bias and more balanced it makes it funny compared to the mainstream mass media. David GlobalCrier
