Our Treasonous Media Is a Clear and Present Danger

My dad, in teaching me Portuguese history, used to repeat an aphorism, “A weak king makes a strong people weak.” This often ran to my head during the ill-fated reign of Barry the Smug.

But we’re not, thank heavens, an absolute monarchy, which is where that saying originated. Our danger comes from another area. Weak presidents, mentally slow representatives, and various functionaries who are not so much incompetent as on the other side — all of them pale before the risk our media presents.

    For at least the last 50 years or so the media believe they are first and foremost an agent for social engineering with the entertainment media playing its role along with the rest of the media. We ceased having actual investigative reporters and journalists who check their facts before publishing “news”. It every bit as agenda-driven as the media in a totalitarian regime, and without requiring government control.
