The presidential election only exemplified exactly how corrupt the western press has become. It is simply a mechanism to promote corporate propaganda on many levels as dictated by Maddison Avenue via hand picked investor/politicians. The Standing Rock Stand-Off is a classic example, the media is further than Pluto from the truth.
Stories abound about the Besieged Standing Rock Sioux of North Dakota, their struggle against the Dakota Access Pile Line (DAPL) or ‘Black Snake’ and endless western media prevarications. But while on assignment at the Oceti Sakowin Camp I also found another story. Granted, it was unexpected but it was also hard to ignore for it brought me back to the very essence of my core beliefs. In a way this became my personal pilgrimage.
