The Press

My apologies, this isn’t about book presses or publishing; it’s about the news. I don’t know which is worse: agenda-driven propaganda or the reporters who perpetuate it.

Dear Reporters: before you grace us with your venerable ignorance, please read history. You are supposed to monitor government (not be monitored by them, not parrot them) to protect the people. –And you wonder why Americans get their news from late night comedians?
Dear Less-informed Citizens: Beware sound bites, video clips, and tweets where full context is chopped. Even high-information “news” people often offer short snippets that mislead for their own objectives. Your best bet is to get your information from multiple sources.  https://pressfreedomfoundation.org/ End rant. Thank you.

  1. Just me (the author) with a new comment: If you want to hear both sides Book TV (CSPAN2) does a pretty good job of airing communicators from a variety of backgrounds and opinions.
