I’m not watching CNN anymore. Not that I do all that much, but what I have seen has disgusted me. I never thought that a war could become glitzy prime time TV. Then again, “reality TV” is very popular these days.
Clear Channel doesn’t have anything to do with the pro-war rallies. Sure.
“What makes it all possible, of course, is the absence of effective watchdogs. In the Clinton years the merest hint of impropriety quickly blew up into a huge scandal; these days, the scandalmongers are more likely to go after journalists who raise questions. Anyway, don’t you know there’s a war on?”
