Nice one from Digby

on the bizzaro world of big media "news."

I don't know about you people, but these days everything in our media just comes off as either painfully clueless, willfully ignorant, or cynically manipulative. I'm talking everything.

The Happy Tutor says as much: Is it News to You that We Are Losing our Freedom in Wealth Bondage?


The truth is usually buried, often on purpose, in a sack of shit filled and mislabeled, and sold as news by professional casters of news. Our job is to root around in the crap they write for hire for the half-digested evidence of what is really going on, the inexorable world-historical change from democracy in America to Wealth Bondage, billed as Freedom. News is new, what changes abruptly against a slowly changing or unchanging background of Wealth Bondage. Our most important job as citizen thinkers is to let the news sink into a singsong, and listen for the drone of the engines underneath it, the money engines, that push news, or war, or legislation, like any other product.

In the post linked at the top, Kabuki Ethics, Digby has the impertinence to ask why the shabby singsong-and-dance has shied away from the Gannon/Guckert fiasco.
