In a time of deceit...

...telling the truth is a revolutionary act.

Orwell was prescient.

I dare not call it hope, but an act of conscience, by Lara Logan;
"85% of journalists are registered Democrats," Logan said. "How do you know you’re being lied to? How do you know you’re being manipulated? How do you know there’s something not right with the coverage? When they simplify it all [and] there’s no grey. It’s all one way. Well, life isn’t like that. If it doesn’t match real life, it’s probably not. Something’s wrong. For example, all the coverage on Trump all the time is negative. … That’s a distortion of the way things go in real life."
and this bit,
"Although the media has historically always been left-leaning, we’ve abandoned our pretense — or at least the effort — to be objective, today. … We’ve become political activists, and some could argue propagandists, and there’s some merit to that... 
...That’s not journalism, it’s horseshit,"

I have news for anyone who'll pay attention; this has been a problem in this country for an ENTIRE GENERATION now.

I can only wish that others would wake the fuck up and start putting down the rabid dogs, en masse.
