The contempt that I have for media double agents is palpable and without limits. Cable and network “snooze” buffoons are agents of the government: stenographers who merely relay and repeat what they’re told and what they dutifully record. The days of Woodward and Bernstein are over. The investigative journalist is through. What passes as such is pabulum and approved corn pone. Vetted and redacted by the Feds. And the corporate controlled media are too scared to veer from that which they’re told.
Marshall McLuhan said that all media exist to invest our lives with artificial perceptions and arbitrary values. Hear! Hear!
