Perhaps these left-wing*** violent radicals aren’t on the list because don’t quite fit another narrative – I might better call it a slander – presently so popular in the press. It goes like this: “We should not, must not, cannot speculate,” the sanctimonious pundit always begins. “But it sure seems possible (or reasonable or likely or evident) that this vile act was committed by someone opposed to the current gun control proposals.” Who knew that so many television and radio talking heads were so fit and nimble, so able to leap to far distant conclusions at a single bound? And yet, in the past two days I have heard those words, or similar ones, on NPR, CNN, ABC and NBC with my own ears.
Or watching life thru political lefty colored glasses. And I am not saying that there are no righty colored glasses but the idea was to have NO glasses at all or at least have some with a itsy bitsy correction.
But sadly, the press has been in the propaganda and news business, not in the truth business for a long while now. They haven’t made money in a long time and the propaganda side of the equation is also in decadence.
Somebody said,I forget who, that he did not know how important a free press was to the USA until we lost it.
