speaking the truth to power

it’s amazing how many of those who once claimed to be all about speaking the truth to power

suddenly decide that they will not allow any truth to be spoken to or even near to them once they become powerful.

why, if i didn’t know better, i’d be tempted to think that they never really meant a word they said and were just striking a pose to look cool and edgy.


for those not following this, project veritas just acquired and published some VERY damning supervillain monologues from CNN editors that, while not being news to many, are at least tangible confirmation of deliberate fear mongering, dishonesty, partisan meddling, and audience and guest manipulation to skew the presentation of information to drive ratings and seek political ends.

they will keep squeezing and the water will keep flowing out of their hands. the truth will find new ways to be heard.
