This article at the American Thinker site is kinda long, kinda wanders, and kinda rambles its way through a bunch of items that end up telling us what we already know: that the mainstream media sucks.
But, it is a good read with some interesting observations, like:
Designed to shock a jaded public, freak porn occupies so much of the daily news cycle that, other than the weather and traffic reports, I'm not sure the modern news media serves any real purpose anymore. It's merely sordid entertainment.Mac Johnson ends the piece very well when he says, "Screw it. I'm going fishing."
My sentiments exactly.
