Time for the media to fess up | Salon
For many of us who grew up during the “Watergate scandals” and watched in awe, the film, All the President’s Men, journalism and the truth-seeking for which it aspired, we were inspired indeed. How we have gotten to where we are now is a sad tale indeed, and though I’m not shocked -SHOCKED- by the admissions in this Salon article, it just proves once again, that the message the media chooses to promote, is the one that the majority accepts as dogma.
The outcome, however, will be – nothing. There will be no accountability. There will be no shock. Mostly shruggin of shoulders and the mantra, “well, that’s typical” or “I’m not surprised.” But, we should be. We should be outraged.
