The Long March to nowhere

The excellent Noemie Emery of the Weekly Standard on how, like Baghdad, the major networks and New York Times appear to have crumbled from within. Emery’s brilliantly-stated conclusion is this: “In the 1960s, the left was sent on the Long March through the institutions of information and culture, hoping in time to control all the bullhorns: the schools and the churches; the films, arts, and music; the publishing houses; the networks and the press. And now that they have them, they turn out to be worthless. Their worst fears have been realized, and the country is growing and confidence. The Long March to sell us on fear and failure is ending in freedom and flags.”
