For some reason, writers and commentators always feel that the underqualified fake gaurdians at the gateway of news and opinion promote their opponents ideas suppress theirs. They routinely accuse the media sites that publish or broadcast their views of suppressing the views they espouse. Every day I hear a spin doctor on the news complaining that the broadcast network airing his/er views promotes the other side’s views and suppresses their views.
You know, the view they just expressed, which the moderator challenged with a tough, probing question such as, “How can you be sure,” or “Don’t some people disagree with you?”
It’s been this way since I started listening to my car’s radio and watching cable TV panel shows.
In the words of David Byrne, “same as it ever was.” Oh, look where my hand was: Clicking on the link to a post about a real issue.
