Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

I’ve noticed a new resiliency in the American people that I had not seen before after years of the corporate media controlling how we’re fed news they’ve began to wonder about all the paradigms of the story. More and more Americans are choosing alternative media such as Infowars.com and Russia Today. We’ve grown to realize the media cannot be trusted to the point that only 11% of Americans believe we are justified in attacking Syria. Now, I’m sure this is war weariness more so than alternative media. And to be honest, I hate listening to alternative media just as much as mainstream media because it reminds me of the sad reality of what “journalism” is today. It’s just propaganda, which propaganda do you believe is the question.

The stench with which the media has been advocating the war is surreal. Mostly it’s these Washington D.C. journalists that believe in the superiority of their views because all those they’re connected to believe in the moral superiority of unipolar force in world affairs. Unipolar force is great when you have the greatest military in the world, but seriously let’s quit thinking with an ego and attempt to try something new. Like, for instance, not supplying jihadists with weapons just because we want to get closer to Iran.

But the alternative media seem to be taking sides with the Assad regime and that does not bode well for alternative media. The Alt media has always been a thorn in the side of the establishment. I wouldn’t be surprised if there are moves to label them traitors when in fact they believe in liberty after all is said and done.
