If ever there was trust in the integrity of our mainstream media, it took the form of Walter Cronkite. Cronkite recognized not only the need for an unrestrained media, but also the need for the news and journalists to be fundamentally liberal, i.e., nondoctrinaire.
He also noted all too prophetically: "We are not educated well enough to perform the necessary act of intelligently selecting our leaders," and that, "We've got a great percentage of our population that, to our great shame, either cannot or, equally unfortunate, will not read. And that portion of our public is growing. Those people are suckers for the demagogue."
As always, you can direct a significant portion of profits from any purchase at thislandisourland.co to a critical charity of your choice fighting for our civil liberties, including the ACLU, the Anti-Defamation League, and others. Every bit counts in the fight for our freedoms.
