Ripping the Media

Joe Bageant is on a tear. Check out his latest about the media -- especially NPR -- and its loathesome inability to report the facts in the face of the right wing juggernaut, which has colluded for years to, not only defile the functions of government, but to cow the media into not reporting about much of any of it.

Having come to understand that mainstream media are in the business of selling fried chicken and cars, giving Wall Street head, and stealing bandwidth from the public's airwaves, none of us expect them to question anything afoot in the empire. We quite understand they cannot be wasting profitable air time on a nation whose collective memory is 30 seconds long.
And keeps on rolling....
