Journorwellianism ...

And no, I don't want to be known for coining that phrase, but that's what we got. And they bitch and moan about blogger ethics. Personally, I think we're a far more ethical bunch than the 'journalists' who bring us the news. We're a damn sight quicker to correct ourselves when we fuck up than they are. Cdr. Huber sums it up nicely:


The greatest threat America faces is not Iran or the terrorists or weapons of mass destruction or Russia or China. It is the purposeful and focused internal campaign, being conducted by right wing ideologues, to destroy the citizenry's capacity for critical thinking.

To make us so confused and so afraid that at the end of the day, we have no choice but to believe what Big Brother tells us, even if we know he's contradicting himself and making no sense whatsoever.

The first casualty of the 'neocon era' was the truth. Let's hope we can save it before they put it to rest in Arlington next to the Consitution.
