The title suggests the theme of most Main Stream (Lame Stream) media reactions when caught in lies, deceit, and misinformation.
They seek cover under the Constitution as if they were the stalwarts of protection of our freedoms! Instead they are the very antithesis of the freedom of speech...intending to both squelch the free speech of those opposed to their ideology, and cover themselves as the rightful purveyors of their free speech to keep the population under their thumb.
How very, very sad!
As a newsman some 40 years ago, I remember well the age when we, as newsmen, found it our charge to provide to our listeners/viewers the facts as presented by both sides.
NO editorial opinion!
NO slanted coverage.
IF WE FELT the need, and offered editorial comment, we did so by labeling it up front as such!
The times have changed, and today's circus media feel empowered to direct our views, offer their opinion as fact, and ignore the actual in favor of the fiction of their own opinion!
