I have for some time that conglomerate of attention aggregators we call sometimes the "mainstream media" the complicit media.
Effective immediately I am going start referring to them as the Duplicitous Media. They are far beyond complicity, and far beyond remembering HOW to tell the truth.
The people who do so much to fill minds emptied by illiberal educations with shit, but who continue to lie about their commitment to truth, collectively view that word as meaningless, and by extension lies as functionally equivalent, and politically superior.
They warrant contempt, and they warrant being ignored completely.
