Journalism Beneath Contempt
This is not a political problem, it's a cultural one. Leftist journalists trained by leftist professors and encouraged by leftist entertainers to slavishly serve the aims of leftist politicians. This circle will not be broken by the cowards and hapless fools on the other side of the political aisle, but only by new educators and new journalists and new culture makers who refuse to conform, rebels who respond to the ceaseless barrage of cynical and racist distortions with facts and moral truths. They can be liberals or conservatives as long as they're honest. They just can't be liars and clowns as most journalists seem to be today.
It better happen fast — it better happen now — because jurors like the ones in the Zimmerman trial, jurors who serve the truth above all, will be ever harder to find in a culture shaped by the current set of miscreants.
This has been a shameful affair and America's newsrooms — and the people who create and encourage them — are to blame.
