Arguably America’s Last Honest Journalist: Amy Goodman of @DemocracyNow | #MSM on Blog#42

Arguably America’s Last Honest Journalist

There isn’t a day when both people I know and strangers on social media don’t lament the state of the media. They have good reasons to lament a corporate media system run amok. Listen to Amy Goodman:

As Howard Beale said in Network:

“So turn off your television sets. Turn them off now. Turn them off right now. Turn them off and leave them off! Turn them off right in the middle of the sentence I’m speaking to you now! TURN THEM OFF…”

Who knew that a mere movie could turn into the present day Foxification we are living?

    Where is our Howard Beale when we need him? “Network” should be required viewing in every high school “civics” class …if there is still such a thing. It is apparent that we are not educating thinkers …we are training technicians.

    • There is no Howard Beale. We had something close in a few people, including Bill Moyers and Dylan Ratigan.

      It’s only Math and “Reading”in high school. No Civics as it only gets people riled up which makes the principal and school board look bad.
