This, above all: to thine own self be true. And it must follow,as the night the day
Thou canst be false to any man
Hamlet, act 1 scene III, William Shakespeare.
Those are heavy words….words that are every bit as relevant today as they were when Shakespeare first dabbed his quill in the ink. Be true to self. Do not live life hiding behind a facade. Abiding this sage bit of wisdom requires first and foremost the one thing virtually every human fears more than anything. It requires a sincere and probative self examination. It requires us to lift the veil and peer into the reflection, seeing ourself not as we prefer to be seen, but as others truly see us. It requires honesty and self realization. It requires courage to face those parts of ourselves we would rather hide from ourselves and the world. We don’t always like what we see when we look in that mirror.
Now before you start thinking I’ve hit my head and woke up in an Ashram, allow me to explain.New Media Central is an informational service that brings you, our readers, news, insightful opinion, commentary, and sometimes humor. Our content comes from a broad and diverse pool of contributors. It is our goal to maintain a level of ethics and integrity standards that readers want, need, and deserve.Over the course of our time bringing you quality content, questions have been raised regarding the political affiliation that New Media Central espouses. Some have gone so far as to call NMC alt-right propaganda.
So, in answer to this, here is my response. New Media Central is not, was not, and will never be a sounding board for extremist politics. Extremism of any polarity is counter to a society built on the foundation set forth by our Constitution. Extremist politics attract the fringe of society, those that feel violence, intimidation and brute tactics are acceptable means of political advancement. This is NOT who we are.
We are, in large part, average Americans. We, like you, are deeply concerned by the events we see unfold around us. We too have misgivings about a system that allows and seemingly rewards wanton abuse. And like you, we place our trust in the Constitution as the last and best defense against those abuses. We support policy, not politicians. We are slaves to no master. We do what we do because we want to do our part in helping the truth come to light. New Media Central takes pride in offering balanced, objective assessment of the news and events facing us daily. Readers have limitless options if they want one-sided biased information. That’s not a market we choose to compete in. We are not CNN, MSNBC, or Fox. We are New Media Central.
