Oops! Three “top journalists” at CNN have had to resign, blamed for a boisterously untrue CNN “news” story about President Donald Trump’s mythical Russian connection, and the head honcho at CNN, Jeff Zucker, is now getting flak coming his way (http://www.breitbart.com/big-journalism/2017/06/26/fox-newss-sean-hannity-calls-for-cnns-jeff-zucker-to-be-fired-in-wake-of-fake-news-scandal/). It kind of hurt him that he was caught on videotape saying the whole Russia story is–we quote–“bullshit.”
Well, like, who didn’t know that? Except for deeply dyed-in-the-wool liberals?
Our nooze media is an institution that not only doesn’t work anymore, but refuses to function as it should. It’s supposed to give us accurate information, once upon a time called “news,” which we as citizens can use as a basis for rational decision-making. But “news” is now “nooze”–a species of myth-making.
No one has been more complicit than the nooze media in the Global Warming hoax. But even more flagrantly, right before our eyes, they have tried to create the myth, “the Russians stole the election from Hillary!” and use it to undermine President Trump–even to get him ousted from office, if they can.
They’re also busy creating yet another myth: “Obamacare was a fantastic success, America loved it, and if the Republicans repeal it, there won’t be any healthcare anymore for anybody and you’re all gonna die, die, die–eeeyaaah!”
What are we supposed to do, if we can’t get any reliable information about current events? If everything we read in the papers and see on the TV news is very likely to be a lie? Where does that leave us?
If those questions ever did occur to the nooze magnates as they corrupted and debased their industry, I think the answer must have been, “Who cares?”
