Is journalism dead or has it always been a joke? I should have just played with myself instead of reading two newspapers front to back every day, believing most every thing I read, for bout 60 years.

Most of the true stuff these days comes from outside the US. It also depends on the issue / crisis. For Libya I've found UK (telegraph) and India quite accurate.

The news media in the United States will not mention that it's Al Qaeda in Libya until the republican controlled congress ok's Obama's war. Then the US media will try to pin this war (when it goes bad) on the Republican Controlled Congress.

No republicans in congress have come out against this war. Nobody has asked questions in public such as "why are we supporting rebels whose own commander has admitted they have ties to Al Qaeda."

They had better start asking questions soon. It's a lot harder to not support this war once we have boots on the ground.

Journalism was always warped in some fashion. Modern times have added a new twist by turning the august old news organizations into light entertainment, as anyone who bothers to dig a little on the internet will pretty well catch up with what’s really going on.
