I posted this as a comment over at BOPNews. I post a similar comment somewhere or other about twice a week.
I don’t get it. Everybody continues to talk as though the media have somehow failed. They are lazy, or cowed, or “unable to frame”, or working for evil editors (“Who are these editors?!”) or maybe just feeling a bit under the weather.
But that is all a very basic and very dangerous delusion. They are doing their jobs very well. This is a competitive world, and careerists everywhere know that capital rules and labor is shit. They know what they have to do to keep their jobs, whether they are paid $80,000 or $80,000,000. They are doing a great job for their bosses.
Stop whining about the media. It’s like whining about Halliburton. Like they care? Like it means anything that you disapprove of them? Jeeesh.
