Question of the Day: Is the Mainstream Media a Lost Cause?

Back in the day, I was a CNN VJ. At the time, CNN supported the telegenic Daniel Ortega’s fascist regime against the U.S.-supported Contras. El Salvador was “another Vietnam.” Apparently. Until everyone got bored. The spin reflected a liberal bias so pervasive no one needed to discuss it. It’s still the same deal at CBS, NBC, ABC, The New York Times, The Washington Post and now the Huffington Post. The jobbing journos in the mainstream media cranking-out anti-gun agitprop don’t even know they’re doing it. If you challenged the folks at 524 West 57th St. about the above news package — what does this Newtown mom know about gun control or the Second Amendment, exactly? — they’d defend it as important reportage ’cause, you know, it’s her opinion. And she has a child in that school! Oh, and the reporter mentioned the NRA’s position. In truth, it’s a perfect example of bleeding heart liberalism. Dangerous stuff. I wonder if it’ll ever change. Whatdaya reckon?
