Our Worthless News Media

Scott Adams makes an important paint, succinctly. God help those who rely for information on what used to be called the mainstream media:

I always assumed that in totalitarian countries, it took force to compel journalists to parrot an official government line. Now I’m not so sure. Pravda and Tass couldn’t have toed a party line with more fidelity than the New York Times and the Washington Post, and no one is holding a gun to American reporters’ heads. Maybe the desire to be part of a herd is all it takes to enforce conformity.
