Or like how, when the New York Times exposed a lie tied to Karl Rove, he himself said it was the worst newspaper in history and nobody should read it, but the very next week when it totally supported one of his other lies, it became, in his opinion, the most respected newspaper in the country, worthy of paying attention to and everyone should buy a subscription and read it?
Yes! Why do you keep asking me these stupid questions?!
I'm just trying to understand.... Like how the media always seems to take the side of the conservatives and their bosses, the conservative-controlled corporations that run them, but is routinely considered to be liberal?
Too easy. That's a given. You'd be crazy to think otherwise.
Or like how Brian Williams is singled out for lying about his experience in the Iraq war, but people like Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld or Condoleezza Rice, the people who lied about the very nature of starting the war are not, and never will be, held accountable for their lies?
Williams is part of the media. The media should be accountable for telling the truth! But everyone knows, and accepts, that politicians lie to us about everything, even reasons to send people like us to war, while they, and their military-age family members, reap the benefits in total safety. You know, sometimes you just have the craziest ideas!
Aha! The truth! What is the truth?
Oh, don't be silly. The truth is whatever they say.
You know. Them.
The people that know better than the rest of us. The wealthy, the politicians, members of Congress, the Supreme Court.
Oh, so it must be true that corporations, because the Supreme Court says so, are people, with Constitutional protections equal to people, but people can be imprisoned or put to death for violating laws or endangering other people, or outright causing the deaths of people, but corporations can't?That's a new catch, I think.
What about class warfare?
What about it? It has no place in our society.
So, when the wealthy want, and get, all the privileges and benefits of our country, but don't feel they need to pay a fair percentage of taxes, that's not class warfare, but when someone looks at the numbers and points out the disparity of how taxes are collected from the working class and distributed to the people that pay few taxes, get all the privileges of our society and already have most of the money, that's class warfare?
