Dear Producer, Memorial Day is Monday. The holiday began in 1866 in the South as Memorial Day to honor the dead Confederate soldiers. It was then co-opted in the North in 1868 as Decoration Day whereby the public was encouraged to memorialize the Union dead from the Civil War by decorating gravesites. The North and the South had differing days for this event until it was officially united around 1913 as Memorial Day, proper.
The Civil War origins of the holiday are largely forgotten. A complete a fair rundown of the event is here
This three day weekend is another holiday where No Agenda continues to work for you. Work may stop, people may take a few days off here and there, but the news continues and so does No Agenda.
You are invited to show your continued support with a special 5-29-17 Memorial Day contribution of $52.92 another “dime” version of the date 5-29-17 or 529.17 done in dimes and rounded up to $52.92. Click here.
The show, uncorrupted by advertising or corporate interests, unlike the mainstream media with its documented conflicts of interests and native advertising, can give you analysis that would never be allowed elsewhere. Please appreciate the importance of this perspective in your life.
The two of us work very hard on your behalf to breakdown what is the agenda-laden slanted news that corporate news sources promote on both TV and the major news syndicates. Much of this MSM news is not even fully vetted anymore and most often is re-written press releases or full blown orchestrations by public relations professionals hired to promote a product or a perspective.
And, worse, is the native advertisement. This is a story written by an advertiser and placed in a newspaper as if it was news. Once the New York Times adopted this practice you knew it was over for the reliability of conventional mainstream media. This is why No Agendais more important than ever.
Please continue to support these efforts done exclusively for you. Donate something, anything, today. Click here. Every dollar helps.
