Seymour Hersh's Awesome Ideas On How To Fix The 'Pathetic' American Media

Topics: Follies of the Mainstream Media, Political News and commentaries

The Guardian calls them extreme, but I call Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and author Seymour Hersh's ideas on how to fix the truly pathetic American media (better described as the 'Obamamedia') as simply awesome and spot-on:

[...] " ... close down the news bureaus of NBC and ABC, sack 90% of editors in publishing and get back to the fundamental job of journalists which, he says, is to be an outsider."

... The Obama administration lies systematically, he claims, yet none of the leviathans of American media, the TV networks or big print titles, challenge him.

"It's pathetic, they are more than obsequious, they are afraid to pick on this guy [Obama]," he declares in an interview with the Guardian.

"It used to be when you were in a situation when something very dramatic happened, the president and the minions around the president had control of the narrative, you would pretty much know they would do the best they could to tell the story straight. Now that doesn't happen any more. Now they take advantage of something like that and they work out how to re-elect the president.

He isn't even sure if the recent revelations about the depth and breadth of surveillance by the National Security Agency will have a lasting effect.

There's more here.
