It’s an open secret nowadays that the media are firmly in bed with the government and the politicians. The media are just another powerful prop in the hands of the fascists who control the United States today (and I mean fascists in the true, serious sense of the word). Joseph Farah and Dan Rather have blown the whistle hard on the media’s relationship to society. A word of warning about the ‘comfortable media critics’ who trivialize the news and ‘make you laugh’. They’re often just quacks who display a surreptitious support for the status quo beneath their routines. The degraded relationship of the police to society is shocking and deeply disturbing but is yet another sign that the meltdown is well-and-truly underway in the U.S.
