    Wow -- reverse McCarthyism: Those motherfuckers have infiltrated every level of the media. WTF!
    No infiltration required. They've always been there.

    We Americans were fortunate enough for one short, golden moment to have and enjoy the courage and integrity of the likes of Edward R. Murrow.

    And now, the corporate bosses are doing their damnedest to make sure that no such thing ever returns to mass media.

    And we're all worse off for it.

    •  Though never as many as now. Murrow was fired (0+ / 0-)

      (or at least forced out) later on, after the "Good Night and Good Luck" confrontation, and these days he'd get shit-canned just like Phil Griffin has done to Donahue and others who rock the boat.
