Whenever Any Form of Government Becomes Destructive To These Ends,
It Is The Right of the People to Alter Or To Abolish It,
And To Institute New Government

The Evolution of American Journalism in all media has reached a nadir

I am 66+.

I can remember Charles Kuralt, and Charles Osgood on the RADIO. WCBS in NYC.

I watched Huntley and Brinkley in black and white, Cronkite, and Howard K Smith when those 3 were the only was to get news for 23-27 minutes a day.

I am certain they had their opinions (we all found out about Walter) but they, LIKE TIM RUSSERT, did a reasonable job of OBSERVANCE.

Then came Tet in 1968 and it began.

Watergate revealed fact by fact how much the media HATED Nixon (who was guilty anyway)
Then Monica and Drudge.

And now here we are.

Everyone is BLATANTLY in the tank.

Fox has proven it this year and, Michelle Malkin showed her flag in the last few days.

MSNBC is obvious, and CNN just will do anything, including putting on the moron who probably could have gotten himself killed by trying to get on the stage with a presidential candidate a few days ago.

We can all name newspapers right down to the local small towns who reveal themselves nearly every single day (like the Bangor Daily News).

When we hear a story, like Michelle Fields/Corey Lewandewski we immediately start adding the chemicals necessary to get the insolubles out of the liquid so we can see clearly, but before the precipitates settle, the story has changed into the betrayal of Breitbart with the resignation of those ‘in the tank’ against Trump vs those ‘in the tank’ FOR Trump.

Who went to school where? Who taught them? Who pays them? Who did they send their resume or CV to? Are they Free Traders? Union? What was their mother’s blood type?


Well for me, I believe NOTHING I read or see at first blush. NOTHING. It’s not easy when some news is ‘reported’ which is in conjunction with what I am ‘in the tank’ for.

It’s a loss of faith in  another institution.

The executive of the USA is in the midst of the largest power grab in HISTORY, independent of party. Congress is lazy in checking, and can’t do a thing anyway, and SCOTUS can’t decide what a tax is and what an illegal mandate is, and CLEARLY engages in politics to back away from decisions the American voters are POLARIZED over (excuse me but isn’t that what they are there for?)

Free trade which sounded so good turns out to be MORE of a threat to our economy than mortgage backed securities BY QUANTA. Because GREED.

Human nature, I suppose.
So throw journalism into the garbage, and when you hear, see, read a story just REMEMBER someone is cynical enough to produce this means to advertising revenue, to create in YOUR minds and hearts the perception that the way THEY THINK AND FEEL is the right way, and is using SOME facts to achieve that end.

NO ONE is reporting the news anymore.

Bet on it.

Have you noticed that the inverted pyramid of journalism has almost disappeared? Almost every story is a propaganda, human interest story.

A friend recently reminded me about all of the government-approved products that have been found to cause significant disruption to the human brain —from artificial sweeteners and fructose to radiation caused by cell phones. The question is, why would government approve such things if it is known that such things have a negative impact on a human’s critical thinking ability? You’ve highlighted that reason in this excellent article. A stupid people are easily manipulated to do what the government tells them, and as we have seen the media has become the government’s monkey.

Michelle Fields and her "boobs up front" combat journalism posture which likes to accuse men of impropriety is the fault of MSM cultivating image above fact-based reporting.

As a respected and seasoned journalist, Barbara Walters earned her place beside Nixon at the Great Wall of China. Diane Sawyer, earned her place. Today we are treated to femme fatale "journalists" barely in their twenties who are oozing with sexuality but lacking in brain cells. All men who value their reputations should avoid giving the interview to such senseless creatures.

The only missing sexual signal when Michelle Fields gave a teary video sniffle of what happened in Florida was the use of a glass with a straw.
