Mainstream media is threatening our country's future

Most of their employees are skid marks on journalism's shorts because..

their employees are people who believe in Journalism as a way to make a difference. (How many times have you heard that since the "Watergate" days?)

Though these particular young people of the 1960s may not be "journalists" many of their underground comrades are "journalists" and all are today's establishment.

I don't see that journalism has to be nonpartisan.. I recall the days when cities had multiple newspapers; TV had not become a major source for news.

So if you wanted all the news you could get it from the newspapers, liberal, conservative, and extreme.. there of course was no talk radio as we know it today (The "Fairness" Doctrine ruled.). The weekly news magazines (Time and U.S.News & World Report) were excellent news magazines that tended conservative and Newsweek seemed too liberal for me.

My point: with the alternate media going strong we have returned to the "good old days."

The MSM employees should admit their bias the way conservatives do then so what would it matter what the MSM do.. until then they are skid marks on Journalism's shorts.
