A CorpoMedia masterpiece has recently been published by Michael Barone, senior writer for U.S. News and World Report. The title: New global study points to hope.  The study in reference is the Pew Global Attitudes Project’s poll of 47 nations. The Pew Resource Center, funded by the Pew Charitable Trusts, likes to call itself a Washington Fact Tank. 
“Reality”? We “citizens of this most blessed country” are in tension with reality because 75 percent of us have some idea what is actually happening—because only 25 percent of us have swallowed more mindlessly the CorpoMedia propaganda?
Reality is something our illegitimate administration has profound contempt for, (“the reality thing”) even while crowing about how great it is being the lone superpower because it affords creation of your own reality. The very term “Bush reality” is a kind of “nuculer” oxymoron.
A euphemism in full glory, the term “intervention” used to describe our hideous, endless war crimes against Iraqis.
Packing a quiver stuffed with lies-for-every-contingency, America has shocked and awed and murdered over 600,000 innocent people while rendering millions more refugees. America has genetically doomed Iraqis virtually forever with radioactivity from “depleted” uranium (DU) projectiles. America destroyed the country’s infrastructure. Halliburton and Bechtell leading the contractors with no-bid contracts in their Christmas stockings, poised to perversely overcharge for rebuilding Iraq as we lop off the top 75% of Iraqi oil revenues for at least 30 years—all this while turning Iraq into our colossal military base for “intervening” in other energy-rich nations to slaughter their people and sack their resources. Reality renders it metastasis, but not superpower reality.
Since CorpoMedia calls it intervention, we might hope to never find out for what CorpoMedia is saving the terms “invade”, “murder”, “pillage” and “occupy”. But with Iran in the cross hairs  perhaps those terms will leak out after the vaporizing with nuclear weapons of much of Iran while protecting the oil and gas fields? Or maybe not, with simple intervention sounding so benign and working just fine.
Barone’s crescendo chides Americans for believing 2 to1 that their children will be worse off than they are: “But what basis do Americans have to suppose that, for the first time in history, a younger generation will be worse off than their parents? Perhaps it’s just a feeling that things cannot possibly get any better.”
For Americans still burdened with freethinking, decency and conscience, this might all seem totally bizarre because it is totally bizarre—CorpoMedia’s primary function of being cheerleader for CorpoGov. But through the bizarrity rings a truth bright and pure as the voice of a silver spoon: American elite really are plying the threshold of can’t-get-any-better, at least in terms of their definition of good.
But a dominant and growing problem: American People and the American elite are worlds apart. The Pew study involves The People; Barone’s article is for and about The People...yet reasons cited for getting “out of our national funk” are veered sharply toward the elite by reality.
