Slipknot's Corey Taylor slams mainstream media


Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor held his new episode of the radio show "A Series Of Bleeps" and talked on the polarizing political climate in America as our country gets ready to elect a new leader. You can read an excerpt below.


He said: "Fundamentally, the federal government is a little more shrouded, because there's so much red tape that you have to get through, to wade through before you can find out what the hell is going on. And that's the rub, that's the dichotomy. As open and as bountiful as information is in 2016, between the social media and the Internet, we really don't know what the fuck's going on, do we? We really have no idea. Because everyone's got a story. Whether it's Fox News or MSNBC, nobody has the straight shit, because editorials are being treated like fact. And that's the problem. There has to be a straight line that people can come back to. Because editorials are treated as mantra and treated as fact, now you have this weird thing where both sides of the political coin have their own group of experts, quote-unquote, who will take information and twist it to their benefit, no matter what it is. There is no base, there is no touchstone to come back to, to look at things in a pragmatic manner. So because of that, there's no way to keep people honest. There's no culpability."

The seventh episode of "A Series Of Bleeps" is scheduled to air on Wednesday, April 13 at 7:00 p.m. PDT, with an encore airing on Thursday, April 14 at 6:00 a.m.
