"The media is rigged. Big League," to quote a famous media critic. But the MSM is probably not rigged the way you think it is. That said, the MSM is amoral, irrevocably corrupt and, sadly, can never be fixed. The truth is now truthy, reality has transmogrified into wikiality, facts have become flexible, and the thin permeable membranes that used to separate journalism, opinion, commentary and entertainment have disintegrated. To help you understand why, I offer this accurate, albeit oversimplified, description of how the mainstream media is "rigged" and what you can do about it.
Here's what's going to happen. You are going to read this post up to the point where you agree with me or you don't. Then, either you will find something else to do or, if I have your attention, you will write a comment or an email that espouses your world view. This sounds great. Except it isn't.
