I would much rather hear it directly from our forces - they could report accurately, directly and regularly. The story would be told, and automatically cross-verified; readers could discern for themselves how things are going. Our guys should get massive raises, too, for doing the extra reporting job above and beyond the most excellent jobs they already do. Then all the talking heads could spiff up their resume's and see who else would hire their b.s.
The current MSM has no shame. It's astonishing.
I will never understand why conservatives have so readily adopted the acronym MSM. It implies that we are out on a wing, separated from most people. Yet voting patterns show that there is a left wing in the US the same size as the right wing.
Liberals use language all the time as one of their most potent weapons. We must learn to defend ourselves from this kind of preemptive attack - in this case by saying dominant media or drive-by media or leftwing media or partisan media or legacy media or dinosaur media but not MainStream.
Libs do control most means of communication but we should not make it easy for them when we can resist their power.
