Liberalism: Out of the closet and breathing free
Last night I was channel surfing a bit. I saw the following: On CNN, Larry King was interviewing a long lost former girlfriend of Clarence Thomas. It didn't look pretty for Thomas. On MSNBC, a special film entitled 'The Assassination of Dr. Tiller' was played, the purpose of which was to lionize the abortion doctor who was murdered by a mentally unstable killer, and demonize all pro-life activists as sadistic fanatics. On PBS, the American history lesson continued as we move into the 19th century, where racist imperialist Americans continue their genocidal extermination of wonderful, perfect, honest and beautiful Native Americans. All of this in about fifteen minutes. This, of course, doesn't count the multiple networks and their programs, all of which speak from a decidedly left leaning POV. If anyone still clung to the hope that liberalism does not dominate the modern media culture, those fifteen minutes alone should throw water on the theory. At this point, I don't think there's even an attempt to hide the fact.
