Pehaps an honest 'fly on the wall' would be better.
In "The Secret Man," Woodward calls Felt "a truth-teller." That's quite a tribute to an FBI man who lied to Pat Gray, lied to all of his FBI colleagues and lied to every journalist who asked him for 30 years whether he was Deep Throat.
If Felt was a hero, why did he not come forward to tell the country what he had done and why?
Because he was no hero.
Think what we really need is a 'Media' doing it job - honestly. If we had that; and not a Leftist propaganda machine that protects the guilty; we would not be frogs; almost cooked.
I have come to believe the press has rarely been “doing it’s job”. Historically, the press pushed the opinions and aims of it’s owners/controllers/editors, which were in some cases one and the same person. We long for the truth, but perhaps we are looking to the wrong people and in the wrong place. Not to say I know where to look, but I sure know where not to look...like the New York Times, CBSNBCABCCNN for instance.
