On Journalists and the MSM.... simple intellectual prostitutes.

Journalists are simply intellectual prostitutes for life...

"There is no such thing, at this date of the world's history, as an independent press. You know it and I know it. There is not one of you who dares to write your honest opinions, and if you did, you know beforehand that it would never appear in print. I am paid weekly for keeping my honest opinions out of the paper I am connected with. Others of you are paid similar salaries for similar things, and any of you who would be so foolish as to write honest opinions would be out on the streets looking for another job.....

If I allowed my honest opinions to appear in one issue of my paper, before twenty-four hours my occupation would be gone. The business of the journalist is to destroy the truth; to lie outright; to pervert; to vilify; to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell the country for his daily bread. You know it and I know it and what folly is this toasting an independent press. We are the tools and vassals of the rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes....."

I expect people to stop watching CBS.....and all other Networks....NYT, WAPO...etc. In fact, I believe that the ONLY way to remain sane (not to mention - informed) is to completely sever any and all exposure to the corporate media. No TV, no radio, no newspapers - nothing. That is the only way to avoid becoming a Zombie. And its wrong to think that a little exposure is no big deal. A little exposure makes a person only somewhat of a Zombie. But that is still a Zombie. As Roger Waters sang "and the worms ate into his brain"...

Corporate media is mind pollution. Period. It should be totally and absolutely boycotted. Besides, in the age of the Internet, why expose oneself to that trash anyway?

GORDON DUFF: CONGRATS ISRAEL ON A GOOD WEEK, PLENTY OF DEAD AND HELEN THOMAS FINALLY GONE: For decades, Helen Thomas, like John F. Kennedy, tried to prevent what has now dragged America into a chasm beyond survivability. For years the ADL, AIPAC and the State of Israel has fought to stop her.... Maybe it was time for Helen Thomas to leave the stage. Israel and its allies may already have destroyed America anyway. Her decades of effort, though steeped in honor, may well have been in vain. Would Shakespeare have written, “Et tu, Obama?”
