"The American print and
TV media has never been very good. These days it is horrible.

"It has become impossible
for most citizens to find out what is happening in the centers
of power. Television news celebrities dutifully present two opposing
sides to every issue, although each side is usually lying.

lights are turned off, the politicians go back to the business
of serving business."

the ordinary opposing forces would lose much of their effectiveness.
In many respects, the media creates reality, so perhaps the most
effective route toward changing reality runs through the media."
"The deep state is working
hand in hand with Silicon Valley social media giants like Twitter,
Facebook and Google to control the flow of information. That includes
suppressing, censoring and sometimes outright purging dissenting
voices - all under the guise of fighting fake news."
