From the sounds of things, the owners of The New York Times had only enough money to pay themselves huge bonuses this year but not enough to keep their northern edition, The Boston Globe alive. So it’s to be good bye Globe.
Good bye and good riddance. U.S.newspapers have become tools of the state and serve only as Judas goats to lead the populace into oppression. How deep in the tank are these sycophants? Well, they sit on their fat asses when the President of the United States, George Bush, walks into the White House press office – speaking truth to power, just like they learned in journo school – and jump to their feet like the puppets when Obama comes in. Video here.
Now, disrespecting the office of the president of the United States isn’t such a big deal – we’ve all grown used to the notion that U.S. reporters consider themselves “citizens of the world” with no allegiance to their country, but the video does illustrate exactly what the media denied so strenuously during the election: they’re Obama men, through and through.
More important, when the White House threatens private citizens with “destruction by the White House Press Corp” you would expect an independent press to protest being used to promote a politicians agenda. No such protest has been made – indeed, the story of such intimidation was ignored or buried by the tools themselves.
So the continued existence of a national press corp, in my opinion, is far more of a threat to liberty than its extermination because the reporters create the impression of independent, free-thinking individuals intent on ferreting out wrong doing. And to believe in that myth is to be in danger of falling into complacency. So so long, Boston Globe, adios, Seattle Intelligencer, Denver Post and all you other ink – stained wretches. I won’t miss you or your betrayal.
