    It's out in the open now. Can it be fixed?
    It's been incremental...death by 1,000 cuts.

    Can the genie be put back in the bottle? Your guess is as good as mine.

    Hear tell, even Walter Cronkite was way left, and reported accordingly. He just hid it well.

    I still remember him lying to America about the Tet offensive.

    I believe it has always been the case, but never more so than now, that it is up to the consumer of information (news, history, opinion, etc.) to obtain that information from multiple diverse sources and apply their own critical thinking, informed by history, observations and experience to any information they receive.

    And while it has never been easier to access multiple sources, it also has never been easier to create a source that promotes a narrative, and so it has never been harder to separate facts from propaganda. Doing so effectively is often hard and sometimes leads to unwelcome conclusions, and the path of least resistance is often to consume a source that generally promotes the narratives we have already accepted.

    Journalism has dictated political policy and division since this country was founded. Dudes actually used to duel and kill each other over perceived insults in print.

    Read "The Boys on the Bus" about the reporterage during the 1972 election, and the rise of a lot of the people who would be seriously influential news figures for decades to come. Almost all of them were some flavor of Leftist, and fairly open about their biases.
    Those people had a big effect on who was hired, and that did skew the industry to the hard left.

    I was very impressed by her. Also quite interested in her background. I stumbled upon this pic from 1994. Obviously looks matter not when you're picking an Associate Justices of the United States Supreme Court, but I couldn't not share a picture of this bright and shiny penny.
