When I was growing up, it used to be that the Media spoke truth to power.
Now the MSM Media speaks the truth as dictated from government power. Remember the endless coverage of the 17 Government intelligence agencies? There would never have been a single network 20 years ago that would have trusted anything that the government said without rigorous cross checking. In fact, the medias prime position was to distrust anyone in power first and verify everything government claimed. Now the media just "leaks" the government truths from anonymous "sources" as "facts." Even though the media gets all these facts wrong, the people still don't get that the media is now working hand in glove with the government.
I'm pretty sure corporate media has been bought by the same people that purchased the government. This is sad.
