Arianna Huffington recently wrote a post that summarizes enough hypocrisy to throw the happiest concerned citizen into a long-term funk. The deep theme that all of these recent events have in common is that prominent American sources of information are demonstrably untrustworthy. How else can you explain the Administration’s military propaganda being spewed out by the networks as though it’s journalism? Huffington cites David Bromwich:
The cavalier attitude of the networks is astonishing. No system but despotism can survive when so many high up do such things without embarrassment.
Unfortunately, that about captures the high level hypocrisy that has become an everyday occurrence.
