The lapdogs' new clothes

The media lapdogs value entertainment, not truth. Whatever sells ads is what they'll peddle.

When I was a young child, The Emperor's New Clothes rang false to me. No one could be that stupid, could they? Turns out I was wrong. Half the American people report openly in opinion polls that they are that stupid enough to support Duhbya and Darth.

The know-nothing media gives them every excuse not to learn. They lend more credence to the imaginings of manipulative lunatics than to actual considered facts.

But ... when I think it's hopeless, I stop and consider that half of Americans, despite a steady diet of disinformation, still see through the lies and smears of the Republican fog machine.
